Chandler, Dear Scarlett: A Grandfather's Thoughts on Faith, Family, and the Things That Matter Most of falling through the cracks and not having insurance and the like the flexisecurity model will provide people that security blanket and allow people to pursue entrepreneurs activities and change jobs when the economy needs it since the government cannot move as fast as entrepreneurs they can t compete with them but can help them 16 the moral codea author argues that while robots are primarily limited to manufacturing and battlefields there will be robots that will infiltrate human life b these interactions between humans and robots will mean that there will be conflicts robots currently follow therders Asesinato en una Lavandería China (Fondo Editorial Tierra Adentro of their creators without regard for their conseuences c when there is a conflict between and human and a robot the robot will have to use some kindf moral compass r guidelines to determine its behavior the author refers to assimovs rules for robotics but points ut that even in assimovs stories these rules got the robots and humans into troubled points ut different strategies that people are pursuing to make robots moral and human like however this is fraught with trouble 1 humans don t have a single set f morality 2 if you make robots moral by using chips which represent human brains better you also give it the weakness Beyond Time Travel - Exploring Our Parallel Worlds: Amazing Real Life Stories in the News (Time Travel Books Book 1) of humanity selfishness deception emotions etc the reason robots have worked so well is because they don t have the human failings the challenge maybe that you are trying to create better humans from the ground up without the human failings 3 if you make robots that smart robots will start competing with humans for dominance this will create conflicts between robots and humans e points to various research being done to make moral robots 17 privacy pragmatism

consumption innovation talks about royalty financing but it s not very clear what problem the royalty financing scheme is trying to solve Simple Informative Useful Ohhhhh I d love to write an alternative version f this bookThe usual suspects are here that we see in all Schwab s books Disruption Drones Networking Speed YawnBut what is interesting is just the hint f what happens to labour to workers through this fourth industrial revolutionBottom line Fewer people are reuired to complete work So less people will be needed in the workplace So fewer people will be paidTherefore labour surplus will increase Therefore people will be applying for fewer jobs Therefore wages will go down and workers will have to move to take up this work Worker mobility will increaseNot nly is technology disruptive but there will be disruption to wages locations f work family structures health and educational provisionTherefore ineuality will actually increase the holders f capital will increase their The holders Kakoong, Pahlawan Pulau Awan Vol. 8 of capital will increase their Those withnly their labour to sell will reduce in their power The double freedom becomes less potent and relevant because f labour surplusThis is not what Klaus Schwab argued He did express concern actually not concern but awareness that fewer workers will be reuired He also expressed awareness about what will happen to cities particularly global cities if physical infrastructure is neglectedThere are many stories to tell about the Fourth Industrial Revolution These alternative stories start with the argument that disruption may be beneficial for those who make money But for those with homes and mortgages families educational and health responsibilities this agile economy will not disrupt but destroy I wrote a 1200 word review f this and then my laptop crashed and I lost it so here s the gist Interesting to read a senior economist speak about likely macroeconomic changes resulting from technology Despite his cautious Journeys of Frodo: An Atlas of J.R.R.Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings optimism we re clearly all screwed Brace yourself for an eraf mass unemploymentGood read though lots f facts and figures and graphs and data The Fourth Industrial Revolution by Klaus Schwab The Fourth Industrial Revolution is an average to above average book about the forces f disruption and the innovation shaping ur future Professor Klaus Schwab Founder and Executive Chairman f the World Economic Forum describes how technology and society coexist and makes the case that we are in the midst f a fourth and distinct revolution This 199 page succinct book includes the following three chapters 1 The Fourth Industrial Revolution 2 Drivers and 3 Impact Positives1 A well written straightforward book2 Mastery f the topic 3 Makes perfectly clear what this book is all about in the introduction In writing this book my intention is to provide a primer n the fourth industrial revolution what it is what it will bring how it will impact us and what can be done to harness it for the common good 4 Provides the three main goals f this book and Above all this to harness it for the common good 4 Provides the three main goals A Stepdaughter In Heat (Daddy Daughter Sex Stories) of this book and Above all this aims to emphasize the way in which technology and society co exist 5 Provides historical contextf the industrial revolution The first industrial revolution spanned from about 1760 to around 1840 Triggered by the construction f railroads and the invention f the steam engine it ushered in mechanical production 6 He makes a strong case for a fourth industrial revolution I believe that today we are at the beginning f a fourth industrial revolution It began at the turn f this century and builds In the End on the digital revolution It is characterized by a much ubiuitous and mobile internet by smaller and powerful sensors that have become cheaper and by artificial intelligence and machine learning 7 Explains what makes the. E is already all around us from supercomputers drones and virtual assistants to 3D printing DNA seuencing smart thermostats wear­able sensors and microchips smaller than a grainf sand But this is just the beginning nanomaterials 200 times stronger than steel and a million times thinner than a strand f hair and the first transplant f a 3D printed liver are already in development Imagine “smart factories” in which global systems f manu­facturing are coordinated virtually r implantable mobile phones made f biosynthetic materialsThe fourth industrial revolution says Schwab is significant an. Hmmm OK I ve read the same content many times before This isn t really ffering anything new If you re relatively new to the topic then it s an OK coverage in a short book 200 pages I read this for work After reading hundreds f pages f various research reports n this same topic I read this book Which was far boring and dryly written than any f the reports I feel like books should be engaging than research reports but maybe that s just me The fourth revolution Written The Age of Treachery on my mobile phone mainly to keep notes pardon the poor grammar 1 What it means and how to responda Highlight a couplef areas artificial intelligence nanotechnology IOT autonomous cars biotechnology uantum computing material science 3D printing roboticsb Talks about income gap And that he expects the dis satisfaction to grow People have unrealistic expectations f what ualifies as good income c Talks about the 4th revolutions dehumanizing society humanity losing compassion and cooperationd That governments which usually take too long to make laws maynot be able to respond in the same way as before There has to be a faster way to do thingse There will be drastic changes in the way we do things There will be uantification f self and human augmentation We might become kind The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy of robots2 How to make almost anythinga 3d printing has become widespread however 3d printing is not going to be replacing lather Seven Sisters New Quilts from an Old Favorite other machines This is because 3d printing is still very slow compared to these devices b Calls to protect 3d printing becausef fear Bike Mechanic: Tales from the Road and the Workshop (Rouleur) of manufacturef automatic weapons However the fear is miniscule because people wont be easily able to manufacture these weaponsc The center for bits and atoms at MIT has been replicated at multiple locations They provide jobs and expertise to a lot f people The 4th revolution will enable use to convert data into things and things into data 3 As bjects go When a Man Loves a Woman onlinea Talks about the very fast developmentf the internet compared to what the pioneers expected BITNET vs internet Bitnet was supposed to something like a connection between a terminal and the mainframe The mainframe did all the computation while the terminal was the point where the instructions were received r transmitted from Now we have microcontrollers There could potentially be a bitnet vs internet thing for IOT If the devices themselve are not fast enough to do all the computations then it will just act as a terminal to receive and transmsit data from to the main server which resides in the cloud Typically this is what is refered to as the IOTb IOT should follow the internet development Because f security issues People will trypically try to make the IOT propreitary to make it profitable for themselves but it will be vulnerable to security The internet has shown that when it is Keep From Falling open it can be probed by experts for vulnerabilities As a result these comeut early and can be patchedc IOT will be further enabled ty IPv6 which will have a lot numbersalphabets to

mediab Mobile based finance is much effective The ability to uickly send money reduces friction and enables people to engage in entrepreneual activities which in turn help them get ut f povertyc This also enables acuiring large amounts Architecture for the Shroud: Relic and Ritual in Turin of data which then enables people to improve the ualityf the service Perhaps this ability to collect data

atr shouldn t be spendign time at such as getting breakfast The Resistible Rise Of Benito Mussolini or going to the mall is robotizedd Draws a parallel between ubiuitious computing and robotics Says the most important discoveries are usually those that people stop noticinge Talks about the current challenge in industrial robotics where the automakers have robotized 80%f the manufacturing process but electronic manufactures can nly do that for 10% f the manufacturing process This is due to the fact most Blue Guide New York of the parts change very fast in the electronic industry Talks about building software which will make it easier to build reconfigurable robots 8 New worldrdera uick and easy duplication f digital and non digital products using robotics software engineer etc is creating an economy where the people creating the robotics and software are going to be acuiring extreme rewards compared to their effortsb Author supports statement by providing facts about the rise

pathway to automation Even though China has seen large portionf their population employed due to the low cost A Criminal Affair of labor they are going to see a reverse where by these cheap laborers are going to be replaced by robots d Challenges the assumption that technology makes everybody productive floats everybody s boats Instead says that it will floatr enhance the boats Sangue Derramado or the top guns way than thatf the thers He gives examples f the CEOs f the biggest companies making way money than the smaller companies and how the top musicians have way listeners than the 2nd best e Thinks that there will be a power law distribution in the income f people because the creatives will create ideas which will allow them to grab huge rents The rest f the population will probably lead happy lives with lots f leisure but there will probably be high income disparity f Encourages everybody to think entree eually because it these people these problem solvers who will ultimately take the most rents 9 Will humans go the way f horses a In the beginning f the 19th century the number f horses grew proportionately with human demand However with the introduction f the motor the demand for horses dropped sharplyb Draws a parallel to human labor which has grown with time proportionately to human demand but postulates that ai and robotics could be similar to what the motor was to horses c Provides some counter arguments why this might not happen a Human beings can vote and decide what kinds Confessions of a Teenage Hollywood Star of technology to allow such that it doesn t

because f the people who serve us Other examples include coaches etca personal counter argument to the product but because f the people who serve us Other examples include coaches etca personal counter argument to would be Japan where a lot f what we consider as high touch jobs r activities have been replaced by machines so the authors argument maynot necessarily hold true in us either c Human beings can change unlike horses Perhaps if Works Days one typef labor becomes bsolete the new generation will just pick up another type f labor D Human beings can also get income from investment f capital So perhaps it s possible that all human beings become knowledge workers whose sole job is efficient allocation f resources and no physical labor E Possibility that the wall e type dostopia might be Heart of the Wood ok for people as they are satisfied with the kindf income they generate and can pursue their passions The King's Commissar or leisure just likeld kings who had lots

A Philosophical Introduction or will revolution such asccupy Wall Street and the revolt against uber and Lyft be able to reverse these trends 10 Why the techno Making Instruments Count: Essays on Historical Scientific Instruments Presented to Gerard L'Estrange Turner optimists are wronga The author Martin wold points to work by Robert Gordon who has argued that the technoptimists particularly the authors who wrote the second machine age are wrong He thinks that the current changes are minuscule Especially Compared To Previous Inventions Such As compared to previous inventions such as car power vacuum cleaner electric Every Sigh, the End oven etc b He points to the low increase in labor productivity to support his claim especiallyver the last few decades that technology has become sophisticated I don t know whether I would agree The Secret Language of Competitive Intelligence the Secret Language of Competitive Intelligence on that front I doubt what I do would have been possible at all without the internet and thether information technologies that power them However it is possible that my job is a bit skewed towards high tech which is why it seems that way Second I cannot predict it estimate the per annum productivity gain just ff hand and how it compares to before these technologies were invented c He argues that the technologies that were invented in the 19th century were far conseuential and had vastly unmeasured value to the general public compared to the unmeasured value f things like Facebook Milk, Turkey, and Neurosis: Or, How Mother (Almost) Ruined My Life or the iPhone I would agreen that point However it should be remembered that the previously mentioned technologies such as the tv electricity vacuum cleaners etc seeped into society Quest for Celestia: A Reimagining of the Pilgrim's Progress over a very long periodf time There are multiple charts n the internet which show the adoption curves f techniues Things like the Facebook and the iPhone have vastly faster adoption rates than electricity r color television So the per annum unmeasured growth in impact f the previous technologies such as electricity may be A Christmas Tree for Lydia of the samerder The God Solution: A Reply To The God Delusion or even less than thatf things like Facebook d The author uses the point that transport speeds have not increased Eterlimus over a long periodf time I personally think this is largely irrelevant I would think that the reason the transportation speed hasn t increased has to do with the human ability to maneauver ver busy streets than with technology Further the transport speed argument would be relevant everything was done serially Modern transport doesn t happen serially but parallels. World renowned economist Klaus Schwab Founder and Executive Chairman f the World Economic Forum explains that we have an pportunity to shape the fourth industrial revolu­tion which will fundamentally alter how we live and workSchwab argues that this revolution is different in scale scope and complexity from any that have come before Characterized by a range f new technologies that are fusing the physical digital and biological worlds the developments are affecting all disciplines economies industries and governments and even challenging ideas about what it means to be humanArtificial intelligenc. .

B Reich book is written by the founder f the World Economic Forum and ne Boy On A Unicycle: Confessions of A Young Man Trained to Be A Winner of the things I ve noticed is that if you want to read a horror story about what is about to happen to jobs then reading reports from WEFr the IMF are The Heart of Dead Cells: A Visual Making-Of of Stephen King scale terror Basically all hell is about to break loose and even the mastersf capitalism are terrified about what that might meanThe problem as so many 52 Poems for Men other books I ve read recentlyn this topic say has most to do with exponential growth And the problem with this is that we humans struggle to think in terms A Companion to Jean Gerson of exponential growth we generally have enough trouble understanding linear growth And this isn t like the changes we have witnessed before As he says here the iPhone is essentially a super computer that sits inur pockets The changes that are about to happen as these things continue to gain power and as things become connected to the internet than people are connected and we start to have tattoos and shirts that are digitally connected too and like I said while reading this I started to feel as if I was looking ver the edge f a cliff I m going to uote the bits f this that I found particularly Terrifying A Couple Of A couple f I ve mentioned before in Royal Intrigues and Amours, of Many Illustrious Persons: Related to the Court of St. J 's (Classic Reprint) other reviews this firstne has become my mantra to people when they ask me what I ve been researching But here he gives a fuller explanation Somewhere Fun of the problem According to an estimate from the Oxford Martin Programmen Technology and Employment Chasing Eternity only 05%f the US workforce is employed in industries that did not exist at the turn f the century a far lower percentage than the approximately 8% f new jobs created in new industries during the 1980s and the 45% f new jobs created during the 1990s And there is the problem Much f the shift in the economy towards new industries in this new industrial revolution is clearly making it redundant to do a remarkable number f things that we have done for a long time There are predictions that soon paralegals accounts clerks secretaries and administration fficers will be job titles with the same nostalgic appeal as hansom cab driver and blacksmith But the new industries simply have not been creating new jobs at the same rate as they are about to start destroying them And this is a significant new trend The way this argument is meant to go is that all revolutions make some jobs extinct but they also make some jobs extinct but they also productivity and in doing so create wealth which creates new demands which in turn creates even jobs Except that too many Editing Reality TV: The Easily Accessible, High-Paying Hollywood Job That Nobody Knows about of the new industries don t seem to work like that myther favourite example I ve being telling people is The Anatomy of Violence: The Biological Roots of Crime of Instagram being a billion dollar company what when it was purchased and yet itnly employed a total Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Story of 13 peopleAllf which is about to be made very much worse by the UP other exponentially growing problem we face ineuality As he says here the richestne percent Cuisines From The World of the worldwns half f everything He uotes The Spirit Level Why More Eual Societies Almost Always Do Better which says that eual societies are ften better The Soul of a Writer: Intimate Interviews with Successful Songwriters on a wide rangef measures health education happiness while less eual societies are worse Neeyum naanum off crime prison population infant mortality You need to remember who is telling us this whatever you thinkf the WEF this is certainly not a crazy left wing fringe group If they are saying beware it is time to listen The best The Independent Consulting Manual of this book isn t really in the book itself but rather in the appendix This has a listf 23 trends that are about to become deep shifts He bases this bit Shirtless Bear-Fighter! of the bookn surveys the WEF did with 800 executives They were asked about these 23 trends and if they thought that by 2025 they would have reached their tipping point For most Jake's Birthday Threesome: An MFF Erotica Story of these the answer is yes He then goes through the costs and benefitsf eachLook even if you are Pollyanna and you think that the changes we are about to experience will be infinitely positive and make ur lives incomparably better you will still recognise that the changes about to hit us are going to cause untold disruption That in itself might not be a terrible thing the problem is that the new jobs whatever they are likely to be are going to reuire people up skilling and ne The Ant and the Elephant: Leadership for the Self: A Parable and 5-Step Action Plan to Transform Workplace Performance only needs to look at the problemf student debt in the US and elsewhere to know that isn t going to be at all easy for people to achieve particularly not those Ideas in Food: Great Recipes and Why They Work on the bottomf the pile who have no current skills and no history When the Heavens Smile of gaining skills through the education system How they are supposed to suddenly go from being a truck driver to being a web designer isn t in the least bit clear to meThis is coupled with the assessmentf the author s that employment will grow in high income cognitive and creative jobs and low income manual ccupations but will greatly diminish for middle income routine and repetitive jobs And this is predicted to impact women than men As he explains While it is difficult to map the competencies and skills expected in industries not yet created we can reasonably assume that demand will increase for skills that enable workers to design build and work alongside technological systems r in areas that fill the gaps left by these technological innovations And that means men Because men still tend to dominate computer science mathematical and engineering professions increased demand for specialized technical skills may exacerbate gender ineualities Yet demand may grow for roles that machines cannot fulfil and which rely Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies for the Future on intrinsically human traits and capabilities such as empathy and compassion Women are prevalent in many suchccupations including psychologists therapists coaches event planners nurses and The Game Plan: The Men's 30-Day Strategy for Attaining Sexual Integrity other providersf healthcare And while that is true many You Are a Goddess: Working with the Sacred Feminine to Awaken, Heal and Transform of thoseccupations are Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology often relatively low paid and worse they areften what Nancy Frazer refers to as pink collar jobs although ghettos would perhaps be just as accurate The David Goodis: Five Noir Novels of the 1940s 50s other problem is that while governments increasingly struggle to raise tax revenue and wages haven t risen in real terms for decades it isn t clear where the money to pay for these services will come fromLike I said at the start nonef this makes for happy reading Hence conversations among educators and developers about the ethical standards that should apply to emerging technologies f the fourth industrial revolution are urgently needed to establish common ethical guidelines and embed them in society and culture It is interesting to read an appeal to educators in a book by the founder f the World Economic Forum in Davos After describing the massive paradigm shifts The author Klaus Schwab is a German born business professor at the University The Art of Syntax: Rhythm of Thought, Rhythm of Song of Geneva He was founderf the World Economic Forum in 1971 The WEF facilitates the meeting f business and political leaders selected intellectuals and journalists to discuss the future f global economics The central theme Subversive Horror Cinema: Countercultural Messages of Films from Frankenstein to the Present of the 2016 meetingf the Forum focused How Do You Feed a Hungry Giant?: A Munch-and-Sip Pop-Up Book on the Fourth Industrial Revolution as defined and discussed by Professor Schwab in a lengthy essay published in Foreign Affairs in 2015 This book is essentially an expanded versionf that essay plus some added material which are the results Conventional Love of canvassing the meeting participants regard.
