Mick Mountz: The hidden world of box-packing #TED

I find this topic fascinating. Things that this talk brought to mind:
  • This is Fordism for the 21st Century
  • This is a prime example of the robotics and automation revolution in full swing
  • The pending implications to massive unemployment (the box-packers are next)
  • The amazing and unpredictable effects of emergence
  • The macroscale parallel processing allusion and its potential to inspire the creation of other systems for different applications and at different scales
  • The incredible potential for massive scalability
  • And lastly, I'm imagining what a poorly programmed SAI would do with this kind of system at its disposal...
