Automation Nation

Check out the Automation Nation colors below!

It used to be the stuff of science fiction movies – robots helping (or hindering) humans - with whole generations entertained by lovable robots that Auto nation LR1 web pgare not only efficient, but have a little personality too. Now these computer based systems are becoming the stuff of reality. Since the beginning of time, we have strived for ways to make things easier for ourselves, make things quicker, make things more efficient. With the advent of incredibly powerful computers we are now able to make even the simplest of human tasks automated and many aspects of our lives are being influenced and shaped by intelligent machines.

Voice recognition has come a long way, and is now in our home and our office, connected to all manner of functions. “Alexa, turn on the lights please!” On checking into the EMC2 hotel in Chicago, you will be told that if you have forgotten anything – toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo etc. - then Leo or Cleo, one of the in-house robots will deliver fresh supplies to your room.

Drones have gone from the niche to the common place, and allow us to get a birds-eye view while the debate about drone delivery continues. Of course as with everything, people take it to the extreme and it can become a hindrance, for example firefighters unable to fight raging wildfires in California due to drones in the area affecting their ability to safely communicate.

Self- driving or driverless cars and buses have been in the news recently, perhaps not with the success rate they were first hoping for, but they are very much here and not a million miles away from becoming an everyday reality.

There are those that believe that this increased development of automation will threaten people’s jobs. However, this has been a concern since the first industrial revolution and in fact the automation has always led to improvements in quality of life and better working conditions.  Often because skilled humans are still required to operate and maintain them.

Of course the negative outcomes are always what hit the headlines, but these intelligent robots are also giving back mobility to those who need it and enhancing quality of life by freeing up our most valued commodity – time.

Even if we don’t have Watson or Alexa in our homes, don’t own a drone, and vow never to get into a driverless car, the power of these systems affects our everyday lives. The data that they capture and generate informs so much of what we do. From counting our daily steps and life-saving medical breakthroughs, to the commercials that are served to us on the social media platforms we use, every decision we make is now informed, detailed and the info is available instantly.

As well as working in a language of their own, once regarded as the nerds or geeks in a basement garage (fact – check how many billion dollar companies were started this way!)  techies are now the new hippies, full of breakthrough ideas and utopian ideals. They are very definitely shaping the future.
