“The Innovator’s Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail (Management of Innovation and Change)” by Clayton Christensen –

“The great historian of science, Thomas Kuhn, taught us that the key to improving any theory is to surface anomalies— events or phenomena that the theory cannot explain. It is only by seeking to account for outliers— exceptions to the theory— that researchers can improve the theory.”

Watch “Alonso Vera: “Autonomy: Replacing Humans or Working with Them” | Talks at Google” on YouTube


Quite interesting. A perspective based on qurrent trends. Teaming of humans and machines far better than pure machines.

Example Toyota replacing robots with humans – robots do not improve processes. Another is a US navy battleship which was supposed to be largely autonomous but ended needing more qualified experts than usually.

Kevin Kelly’s Seven Stages of Robot Replacement

“The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future” by Kevin Kelly –

“Here are the Seven Stages of Robot Replacement:
1. A robot/computer cannot possibly do the tasks I do.
2. [Later.] OK, it can do a lot of those tasks, but it can’t do everything I do.
3. [Later.] OK, it can do everything I do, except it needs me when it breaks down, which is often.
4. [Later.] OK, it operates flawlessly on routine stuff, but I need to train it for new tasks.
5. [Later.] OK, OK, it can have my old boring job, because it’s obvious that was not a job that humans were meant to do.
6. [Later.] Wow, now that robots are doing my old job, my new job is much more interesting and pays more!
7. [Later.] I am so glad a robot/computer cannot possibly do what I do now. [Repeat.]”
