"More robots means lower unemployment and better trade performance. [...] The United States does not lose jobs because there is not enough work to be done but rather because U.S. industry is not competitive with foreign producers. More robots will help fix this."

Michel Baudin's curator insight, February 16, 2015 9:14 PM

Really? If you are not competitive, just buy more robots! But wait... Haven't we heard this before? Isn't it what GM did in the 1980s? Under Roger Smith's leadership, from 1980 to 1989, GM spent about $40B on robots, and this investment didn't make it competitive. 

It doesn't mean robots are bad, only that they are not a panacea. Toyota's Global Body Line is designed to use welding robots where they are justified, and manual welding where not, using the same fixtures. 

In an auto parts plant in Japan, I remember seeing a machining cell with old machines served by robots. A few yards away were new, automated lines that didn't use robots. 

It looked very much as if the old cell with new robots was the result of incremental automation, and that the lessons learned had been applied in the design of the new lines. 

Robots are tools. If you know how to use them, they will help you; if you don't, buying more is just a waste of money.

The Future of Ultra-HD: A Recent SMPTE Meeting Update

Two standards are actually being developed. Simply called UHDTV1 and UHDTV2, the easiest way to distinguish them is by their frame dimensions.

 

UHDTV1 would have a 4k resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels whereas UHDTV2 would have a whopping 8k resolution of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels.

 

The standards would contain 10 and 12 bit depth, with chroma subsampling options at 4:4:4, 4:2:2 and 4:2:0. 8 bit, as well as interlacing and fractional framerates, would be discarded.

 

The likely base framerate would be 120 frames per second, due in part that 120 is divisible by many popular framerates such as 24, 30, and 60.

 

At such a high framerate, the “flicker fusion threshold,” a technical term for image flicker, would be greatly reduced.

One comment in this article will lead you to pause:

" ... More frames means more data, and with 8k cameras shooting up to 72 gigabits per second, this data management soon becomes serious."

Product and process design drive 80% of the total costs, but most continuous improvement effort is spent trying to reduce the remaining 20% in current production.

The internet of everything--annihilating time and space

The internet of everything--annihilating time and space | Interesantes "IND" | Scoop.it

In the future of the internet of things, Wi-Fi is going to be everywhere, and the internet will connect you to every person and thing on the planet via transportation, teleportation and telepresence. A trillion wormholes will let you reach out from anywhere on earth and hug your loved ones, or try on a new pair of shoes, or unlock your bike.

 

In the future beyond the internet of things, all your senses will be wired directly into the internet’s wormholes, and you’ll be completely indifferent to the location of your physical body. When you look around you, you won’t be looking into a nearby region of space. You’ll be surfing an internet that annihilates all time and space – the internet of everything.

"Did you know you have two wireless modems in your head? Your eyes constantly receive radio signals in the visible spectrum, and your sense of vision connects your brain to nearby physical things, like a de facto Local Area Network. But your sensory LAN connection only extends as far as your line of sight. It’s nothing compared to a Wi-Fi internet connection.
