I enjoyed your post. I think emotions play a massive part in building inspiring and effective teams and I recently blogged on the secret sauce of team work. Rather than repeat it here I thought I'd post the link and I'd be very interested in your thoughts. gazo | friv 2 | Z6

@Sanjib, I read a fascinating (and troubling) piece in Economist magazine ( that talked about this issue. Their take on it is that previous revolutions have always replaced jobs with better ones, but there are no guarantees in this case.

@Larry: I think you have voiced a right set of questions! It would be just my guess that these robots are becoming more and more "affordable" if not cheaper so that these are seen fit for a wider spectrum of the industry other than manufacturing, where it has already taken a major role. In the video (I have enjoyed the video) it shows a wider variety of the work these things could do with speed, precision and power. With the increasing trend of business it is a mixed feeling - I am happy that the robotics industry is doing well, but on the other hand I am afraid that the robots would look more "profitable" as compared to human work force in a much wider spectrum of jobs.

Price crossover point

Industrial robots seem well-established at the hardcore end of industrial production where precision and reliability make it worth the cost, but it seems like they may be moving more into taking over the majority of manufacturing and maybe even a wider spectrum of jobs. Where are these models on the price range? How do they compare in terms of cost to a factory (or maybe even fast-food) worker?

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
