Unfortunately, the political climate in the U.S. is extremely divisive. Technology companies only benefit from collaboration, unification and compatibility. While CEOs have the responsibility to make decisions that benefit their country, employees and customers, they also have the responsibility to unify everyone together in a common goal. Affiliations do nothing to push a common goal.
Biotech is something we are just scratching the surface of. We do not understand our bodies and systems enough to truly integrate technology, body and electronics together. The more we investigate the possibilities, the better we get at finding when and where it’s appropriate. Allowing infants to hear their mothers for the first time or allowing amputees to walk is far more important than telepathy.
Humans, to date, have been the smartest beings to walk the surface of the planet. We’ve been at the top of the food chain and thus controlled the world around us. AI presents us with the conundrum of an independent intelligence much greater than our own. It’s natural to ponder what it will be capable of, or how it will think of us, once it sustains a consciousness. AI is ultimately our successor.
Amazon has changed the lives of mothers, tech departments and families alike. The company’s offering permeates every area of life at home and work. The only thing that will stop its growth is losing the trust of its users. Amazon has an exceptionally difficult task in keeping users engaged with reliability, ease and trust. If it doesn’t focus on cultural values, no offering will sustain its growth.
Microsoft has been known as a software giant since inception. They’ve attempted, for a short time, to reorganize as a product company with Zune, Surface, Windows Phone and Xbox. This strategy has only paid off in certain circumstances. It makes sense they would return to software teams and remove the linkage to products and the devices group. In isolation, these products will diverge from Windows.
