The evolution of technology is described as positive change. What is not addressed is the impact change has on societies and the consequential disruption it causes.
We don’t have to go too far to see the impact of social Media in the Middle East and the virulent disruption is has caused. While there maybe a long term positive impact to this disruption the short term impact is there to see.
Another innovation predicted is the positive impact of technology on logistics transportation etc. however it does create significant impact to the High paying jobs within the industry. This option which may not be available to all until one gets better educated to handle the new innovation. What is left unsaid is the degree of change required and whether all workers will absorb or adjust to it.
I believe radical and disruptive tech evolution is our future though we will incur a high human cost as part of this change. Personally am not optimistic of the painless sunny future being predicted with such great optimism.
