lee matthews's curator insight, March 16, 2:48 AM
This article to me highlights the future for the human race. Technology.... like it or not our world embraces it and it has become a case of get on board or be left behind. In this article google offers start up companies using machine learning technology a chance at show casing their technology and winning not only a cash based reward but, also the chance to use googles systems and mentor processes. So often the advent of technology has resulted in the loss of job roles and thus has been traditionally greeted with mixed emotions. Upon reflection however it can be seen that although for a short while this has been the case, in the long term the benefits of moving with technology often out weigh the draw backs. So how I hear u ask will this benefit me in 5years or indeed the modern ohs professional? In ohs we have started talking about the idea of the conceptual lens. In that a situation or incident may be seen from many different stand points or views by many different individuals of varying knowledge and experience. Could technology help us remove the lens? point of view cameras on each man in dangerous situations that could not first be limited by the advent of technologies such as robotics? I bet the guy that holds the heavy drill at the moment would love to learn how to drive a robot..... articles like this are just food for thought around the future. Maybe I will walk on the moon in my lifetime lol.
