A Concerned Futurist
There is a theorem that shows that with enough time, a monkey could have written a Shakespeare play(1). It is therefore utterly plausible that an algorithm could have written the above post with less than infinite time.
Some of the obvious disadvantages of driverless cars include(1):
* Police no longer being able to stop any drivers…
* People ditching cars as a status symbol
* A real blow to the automobile insurance industry as driverless car are likely to be safer…
The trouble with 3Derm and telemedicine more generally seems to be the lack of trust that the patients currently have in a system that doesn’t involve the physical presence of a medical professional(1). This could be addressed with patient education, but will likely take additional training costs and time.

With the onslaught of paid online “influencers”, I do wonder if there is a crisis of credibility with online beauty(1), unless Sephora is able to get real customers to share their feedback online and get the others to like/support/validate them.
Online learning is an effective substitute for classroom learning only if there is implicit trust between participants(1). The importance of building trust in an online environment should not be underestimated.
Wonder how substitutable palm oil is and whether Unilever’s R&D efforts could be directed to that effect. GreenPalm certificates seemed destined to go the way of European carbon emissions trading certificates only with even smaller chance of success given the less developed national regulatory structures…
A great example of embracing climate change and going with the flow, rather than fighting against it.
Great connection between climate change and the food we eat! I do wonder however as to the full environmental costs of growing “meat” in a lab…
Wonder how did the shareholders / analysis’s react to Polman not publishing quarterly profit statements? When do you know you can buck the trend? Would love to be the fly on the wall on that discussion.
Interesting article! Well written. Love the point on taxes. As we are living in increasingly interconnected global economies, it is interesting to see to what extent large organisations will take over the role of government in terms of allocating resources efficiently.
