Li's Blog: Change, change, everywhere a change...I know that song.

Change, change, everywhere a change...I know that song.

Change is the theme of 2020 and it's being driven by technology.

Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, speed of connectivity (yes, 5G), 3-D printers, online shopping, emoji conversations (bypassing need for language skills, as the icons are understood globally), death of privacy, reliance on non-cash transactions (new default currency?), and now, something called exascale supercomputers. Hmmm....

Can't be an ostrich, here. Change can't be controlled. Important to understand technological attitudes in our current culture and to see how beneficial aspects can aid us.

In 1914, another pivotal year, change was upon the Edwardians. In 2014, similar change forerunners were underway for our times. There is always opportunity...and 2020 says hello. Any conferences out there, offering some suggestions? Attend them.

Hi Li.. This is the first time I heard about exascale. You said it right about emojis being the language most commonly used nowadays. Clicking the appropriate emoticon to describe the current emotion is quicker than trying to grasp the right adjective.

Hi Li,  Change is definitely inevitable.  It's  how you react to the change is what is the most important.
