  • Wow. Like it or not, the future will come. It is hard to digest sometimes when we see technology so advance which can replace us. But I feel we have to learn to shift our focus on learning how to benefit from technology.

  • Things will always need repaired.

  • @Lwhitehead, you are so correct about shifting the focus towards how to benefit from the technology. Even with the best of AI, actual human intelligence cannot be replaced. The assimilation of experience with the senses and environmental awareness (human and otherwise) provides the basis for exploiting what the technology has to offer and taking the manufacturing role to a whole new level. Technological integration cannot happen otherwise and those who embrace this not only enhance the value of the other operational systems and programs but also return a higher value within themselves.

    Wishing you the best on your journey!
