At first glance, the term “automation” doesn’t seem to quite describe the way our world works. It’s not that our tools and machines are being run on autopilot, or doing things without us knowing. Rather, the term “automation” suggests that the way our world works is that we’re doing it manually, without any kind of planning or thought. In other words, we’re automating our lives and our jobs.
The problem with this is that the vast majority of people are “automation junkies”. They want to automate everything they can, whenever they can, and for the most part, they’re being successful. But they’re not being successful because there’s a significant disconnect between what they want, and what they actually need to live their lives. Our world is in fact, being automated, but that automation has been done for the wrong reasons.
It all started with the invention of the sewing machine, and the idea of sewing a blanket into a shirt that could fit over your body. Now a lot of people take this as a sign that we might finally be able to automate everything, but this is wrong. Automating machines allows you to do repetitive tasks, but the repetitive tasks that they automate have almost never been good for your health. The reason that machines are so effective at repetitive tasks is because we actually have a natural tendency to them.
We have a natural tendency to automate things. We automatically want to do repetitive tasks because they are easy, and because we can get away with it. We don’t have to think about it, or we can forget it, or we can avoid it, or we can find ourselves doing it because it’s just easier. And I don’t know if this is a coincidence, but automation seems to have a way of changing those tendencies too.
The problem is that the way we automate things with machines can also drastically change the way we think about them. We want to automate things because they are easier. Thats why we automate things, because we want to. But, in reality, we are doing the same thing with machines that we would with a person. Machines are just easier.
There are times when people feel like machines are taking over the world, but that is in fact the exact opposite. Machines are trying to automate us, but in reality, they are being controlled by the people and forces that are trying to stop them. That is where the lines are becoming blurred.
For the vast majority of things, machines are pretty darn efficient. They can do more with less, and less with more. But when it comes to something as vital as the health of an individual human being, we can, and should, automate things so that they are easier for us.
We have to keep this in mind. We live in a world where automation is everywhere. Even with the incredible advances that we’ve seen in the fields of computer engineering and robotics, the number of things we can automate still only makes up a tiny percentage of the total. It’s impossible to automate so much, but we can automate what we can, and then only in a very narrow field that we’re comfortable with.
I think what you are seeing here is that we will continue to need to automate our jobs. And you will be able to automate those jobs. But I believe that we, as a society, can automate some of the things that we want to automate, but only in very specific fields that we are comfortable with.
We are already creating very specific jobs that we feel comfortable doing. For example, we are automating factory workers at a very high rate. But we are also automating those jobs that are very repetitive, but we are only comfortable doing them in a very narrow field.
