Being on the front lines of IT there are a few concerning things.
First and formost is AI.
Now don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with making a machine do your dirty work, I embrace it.
But when you hear learders like Musk and Hawkings question it's validity it makes me start to wonder.

Seeing it in the news is one thing. When it starts hitting closer to home it is another and I am hearing a lot of it in my current circle.
As I see computers starting to think they know what I think I want I get a bit nervous.
Microsoft has tried this over and over again and it was obvious that they had no clue what I wanted.
That being said, hold on to the reigns because I believe we have a rough ride coming in the not to distant future.

If you think about it.. when lately has any corporation done anything that was in your own best interest?
It is profit driven and can be obtrusive.

Having a roomba to clean the house.. good.
Having wemos and nest control some of the electric to keep costs down.. good.
Having a computer or device that monitors your every move in an attempt to forcast your next move without you knowing about it... not so good,
especially when their is no insite on where that data is offered, stored and monitored (or sold).
It may be the coming of the lambs and we are turning into the proverbial sheep.

I guess time will tell, it always does. I feel that we are already turning into the movie Idiocracy.
If you have not seen it, you have to rent it.. it will open your eyes of things to come. :)

out..
