It is not #automation that scares people, it is #inflation. Might sound odd, but what I mean is that the promise of a fully (or at least a more extensively) automated future seems like a threat because modern currencies are fundamentally inflationary. When we work and save, the
purchasing power of our saved funds diminishes with time. This is not a natural state of things, as many nowadays would assume. It is created. The reason prices tend to go up over time is that money loses its purchasing power. If you think about it, shouldn't innovations and
competition mean we become more productive and thus can get the same benefits (goods, services) at lower cost? That is exactly what is happening, and it is evident in some industries like hi-tech (smart phones, tablets, PCs). Wherever there are private businesses producing and

In April, the CIA declassified this image of the first-ever map drawn by a computer. cdn.muckrock.com/foia_files/201… (h/t @simongerman600 & @NatSecGeek)

It was generated in January 1967 and the preceding years are chock-full of gems on #innovation, #dataviz & #intelligence. Thread.
2. The 1960s bred the perfect storm for tech-enabled transformation at the CIA. A holy trinity for #defenceinnovation? Technology + necessity + political will seems like a pretty good recipe. But organisational barriers make it less straightforward.
3. CIA maps were hardly used during the Korean War, gave a “psychological boost” to the state of intel during Cuban Missile Crisis, & were relied upon in Vietnam. Automated mapping from the late 1960s helped improve accuracy & reduce clutter, building on other tech breakthroughs,

#Automation will displace millions of jobs, solidify inequality, and transform cities as neoliberalism did the Rustbelt. In response, everyone from the Alt-Right to Silicon Valley is now backing #UBI. But is keeping capitalism afloat really the solution? itsgoingdown.org/against-automa…
Over the last 20 years, 85% of the jobs lost in the US have been due to automation, not outsourcing. Over the next 10 years, many are predicting that 50% of US jobs will be destroyed or impacted due to automation. Many are former positions within the so-called "gig economy."
Many economic and automation experts predict that "boom towns" of today, like Las Vegas, in 10 years could face upwards of 65% of jobs being automated out of existence, becoming "the next Detroit."

Here are some of the themes being explored by me with an eminent panel on #RPA at #ETGBS this evening:
Their experience of #DigitalTransformation and POV on role of RPA in driving it.

Imagine a future of bots augmenting humans, one per employee in a gigabot economy: what does it mean for your Enterprise?
2/7 #ETGBS #RPA
Insurance especially health & life is an under-penetrated market in India. How can #RPA & #AI  accelerate business growth?

An often misunderstood element of the next generation of credential based digital #identity systems is that they are no longer reliant on any single issuer being trustworthy. 1/n
Rather, they rely the combination of many issuers, and many #verifiableclaims in order to create a reliable web of trust. As with any network, this ability to establish trust between peers scales exponentially with the relationships inside it. 2/n
This network effect fundamentally shifts the power balance from centralized issuers, or federated identity managers, towards individual ID holders. The trade-off here is 1) the ease of #compliance and 2) #automation of services across contexts in an ever expanding ecosystem. 3/n

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.

H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

Like most IT people I love tools. And tools are absolutely vital to #Agile, esp. #automation of #development & #delivery. But when it comes to managing teams & processes, do #tools and #Agile always mix? Maybe not…
1. Software developers like #tools. No, they adore tools. They seem the most natural way to solve a problem, and they are familiar territory that any #delivery team is more than happy to enter. #Agile
2. But #tools provide little support for the *content* of most #Agile delivery tasks, from defining Product Vision to conducting Daily Stand-Up Meetings. They do support day-to-day workflow, reporting and recording, but at that level are often easily replaced by manual #methods.
