Global Robot Revolution: EVERY Job Is At Risk?

by Dr. Iris Marie Mack, PhD, EMBA   The algorithms of a robot are progressively advancing, making the automation of more tasks possible, and, eventually, many occupations are likely to become obsolete (Mack, 2017). Robots can perform repetitive tasks, which are tiresome and prone to mistakes when done by humans, faster and without errors. Because of that advantage, they are taking over many tasks in many industries, lowering wage costs, and improving efficiency. Let’s look at some examples.     The manufacturing sector was the first one to introduce robots to perform…

Running may have made dinosaurs’ wings flap before they evolved to fly

Caudipteryx robot for testing passive flapping flight. Credit: Talori et al. Before they evolved the ability to fly, two-legged dinosaurs may have begun to flap their wings as a passive effect of running along the ground, according to new research by Jing-Shan Zhao of Tsinghua University, Beijing, and his colleagues. The findings, published in PLOS Computational Biology, provide new insights into the origin of avian flight, which has been a point of debate since the 1861 discovery of Archaeopteryx. While a gliding type of flight appears to have matured earlier…

20+ Life-Changing Times When Service Was Shifted to a Whole New Level

Today’s customers’ hearts are conquered not only by high-quality products, but also by perfect service. All because after getting this service, people will keep coming back again and again. A good example of this approach is a kids dentist, who installed video games in his waiting room so that his tiny patients wouldn’t feel bored while waiting for their appointments. While we’re ready to go to the store that has installed a winter simulator with real frost and wind for testing winter clothing. We at Bright Side really appreciate the creative approach of companies who are in pursuit of attracting customers. And here are 20+ examples that you…
