How Uber’s Autonomous Cars Will Destroy 10 Million Jobs And Reshape The Economy by 2025 « CBS San Francisco
[The 2nd Industrial Revolution enabled by Moore's Law from 2000-2030/50: autonomous cars, software eats the world, marketplaces, share economy, automation, robotics, AI/augmented reality, local - just in time manufacturing via 3D printing, renewable energy and 100% recycling of everything.] The transition is already beginning to happen. Elon Musk, Tesla Motor’s CEO, says that their 2015 models will be able to self-drive 90 percent of the time.1 And the major automakers aren’t far behind – according to Bloomberg News, GM’s 2017 models will feature “technology that takes control of steering, acceleration and braking at highway speeds of 70 miles per hour or in stop-and-go congested traffic.”2 Both Google3 and Tesla4 predict that fully-autonomous cars – what Musk describes as “true autonomous driving where you could literally get in the car, go to sleep and wake up at your destination” – will be available to the public by 2020.

Seltene Erden: China will Kontrolle über Spezialrohstoffe - Wirtschaftspolitik - Wirtschaft - FAZ.NET
Solange China die Bodenschätze ausreichend auf den Weltmärkten anbot, scherte sich kaum jemand im Westen um die 17 Elemente mit Namen wie Yttrium, Lanthan, Neodym oder Promethium. Da sich die Förderung anderswo angesichts der niedrigen, von China bestimmten Preise nicht lohnte, schlossen die meisten der Minen in den Industrieländern. Durch Chinas Exportverteuerung dürften die Preise jetzt jedoch in die Höhe schießen. Anwender innerhalb Chinas genießen einen Wettbewerbsvorteil.

Der Konflikt könnte eskalieren, wenn die Asiaten wie befürchtet 2015 den Export einiger Seltener Erden ganz verbietet.

Journalists as ski instructors. (Scripting News)
Journalism is like skiing in the 50s or 60s. Previously it had been a sport that very few people enjoyed, and they were all very good. But now the doors were opening to amateurs, as it did with skiing. The pros are going to have to share the slopes with people who don't take the sport as seriously as they do. They're still going to be able to ski, but the rest of us are not just going to admire them for how skilled they are, we're going to do it too. They can even earn a living as ski patrol and ski instructors. Or lift operators or more mundane jobs like people who work in hotels and drive the shuttle bus. There are still jobs in skiing after the arrival of the amateurs. But the exclusivity is gone. Permalink to this paragraph
