A new automation report has been published and it tackles the measurement of a vital trend, namely the amount of robotization that has already occurred.
As has been noted here, in 2013 the Associated Press published a series documenting how the Great Recession had prompted many businesses to invest in technology, thereby killing middle-class jobs and […]
A new report came out last week forecasting the likelihood of automation taking human jobs. The study comes from PwC (Price Waterhouse Cooper) and can be seen online at UK Economic Outlook where the section about international automation begins on page 30.
The upshot is not quite as dreary as the 2013 Oxford study by Frey […]
Leave it to immigrants and their groupies to ruin a perfectly fun little holiday, namely Pi Day which occurs on March 14 (3.14). Silicon Valley anti-borders diversity fanatics are using the occasion to protest President Trump’s efforts to keep America safe by enforcing its circumference. Not only are the border grinches sullying Pi Day, they […]
I rarely watch NBC, but was clicking around a couple days ago and saw a rather decent piece on self-driving trucks that included important facts about how the technology will affect jobs in an important American industry. Interestingly, Fox News is AWOL on the subject, while the liberal media does better, in particular PBS and […]
Robot food delivery in the neighborhood has been chatted up on the news as the cool new tech thing about to happen, being tested and now it’s here.
The flagship robot delivery fleet rolled out on Wednesday in Washington DC.
The robots are doing the deliveries, although human minders will accompany the machines for now.
The little robots […]
San Ramon, California is a suburban community of around 72,000 located 34 miles east of San Francisco. The city is the first place in the nation where self-driving vehicles are allowed to function without a backup human driver in the seat, albeit in a limited situation. The shuttles scoot along at a safe 12 miles […]
Wednesday’s Los Angeles Times front-page story about the waning of black political power due to hispanic immigration into a historically African-American neighborhood made me think of Terry Anderson, the self-described “Prisoner of South Central.” Twenty or so years ago when Terry was getting attention on the radio and beyond for his outspoken views on immigration, he […]
The Los Angeles Times is astounded that President Trump wants immigration to be a legal process, and admitting foreigners should not endanger the safety of Americans.
In short, immigration should not be a suicide pact, but the Times finds that notion to be radical. The Times rejects out of hand the many arguments to restrict immigration […]
Wednesday’s top headlines were a revealing expression of left angst over the government defending America’s law and borders, with some verging on hysteria:
White House clears way for far more deportations — Los Angeles Times
Deportation rules put millions at risk — Houston Chronicle
Deportation push put in motion — Chicago Tribune
U.S casts wide net on ways to […]
I wasn’t going to write about Thursday’s “Day without Immigrants,” the illegal alien goof-off day, but the Mexican flag splashed across Friday’s San Jose Mercury was irresistible.
Apparently “Day without a Mexican” (film 2004, event 2006) was not inclusive enough for the expanded diversity of the 21st century. But at least “Mexican” (a foreigner) was a more […]
Hotel management has reacted positively toward the improved capabilities of robots suitable for their industry. A recent confab of the hospitality industry highlighted the new automation becoming available to perform more challenging tasks.
Robot bellhops are already in use in some Marriott hotels and elsewhere.
One of the machines in the pipeline is a robot maid, which […]
Pew Research has just published a brief report illustrating the clustering of large numbers of illegal aliens, titled 20 metro areas are home to six-in-ten unauthorized immigrants in U.S.. So it’s simple: there are millions of illegals and they bunch up together in unlucky (or liberal) cities.
The Pew map tells the overall story:
The list of […]
