Brexit Phase Two - Trade

UK companies are late to the game for the most part and UK Public Sector is a million years away from it - the biggest barrier being the Unions.
How come Germany manages it all better, with much stronger unions? Perhaps something else is involved?
 
You’ve not been paying attention again. Wishful thinking and fantasy are no grounds for a political future.

No one wants a GE. The Tories will tie themselves in all sorts of knots to avoid it at present, never mind the foreseeable future. I can’t see May going anywhere anytime soon.

Those brave believers in Brexit, no courage, just convictions that have been ripping the Conservative party asunder for 40odd years
These people should be ashamed of themselves, they care nothing for the party and less for the country.
They’re happy to hold her up like a flak jacket while hiding on the back benches.

It’s insane that a bunch of people, who claim to represent their country, They seem to detest foreigners more than they care about their country’s future.
Take a look at them, do any of them look like the sort to be affected by ‘economic turbulence’. Or are about those who are.

The last line ‘at the time of their own choosing, when they’ve given themselves the best chance of winning a GE’.
If only all political parties were so perceptive.
What about the labour supporters and MPs who want out of the EU?

Let’s not forget this baby of the house.

I work for the a company involved in the technical side of the IT sector. Some very smart people have been researching AI. Their conclusion is that - at present - it doesn't work. But that it will work at some indeterminate time in the future - be it one year, five years or fifty years.


Yep. But its going to happen, so the UK had best prepare for it. Which means investing in the techniques and the technologies and ensuring we're at the front of the pack when theory becomes practical solution.

Which is why the next generation aircraft in design are going to manned and unmanned...you'll find that it doesn't matter too much, we can be leading the field and something else will come at us from the side.
 
Remind me how much dumb robots have replaced workers on car production lines. It will be an incremental process with more and more intelligence being built into such robots. It won't be a case of dumb robots one day and intelligent ones the next.

Given that the first manufacturing companies to develop viable AI will rapidly drive their competitors out of business, it's an arms race no major company can afford to fall behind in. The problems will inevitably be overcome - driven by the lure of increased profits and the need to stay in business.

If only people had researched this...

And lastly, for those who prefer the medium of pictures...

I do wonder what you at that high tech company?
 
As technically Middle Earth was supposed to be Earth in the past, and real life 'hobbits' could be the earliest forms of human

Perhaps they should have a position on Brexit as well ?
They're probably tolkein bollocks about it as well...

What's your accusations of Soubry acting out of self interest got to do with geldof?

Two different people, you realise?
Can you prove that?:p
 
Does the NHS pay sickpay for missed overtime?

Who would have thought that the Spinning Jenny would take off?

Steam Engines were the work of Beelzebub.

Not so long ago you would've been considered a fruitloop to predict a hand held device that could communicate to a similar device anywhere on the planet, in addition to it being able to let you link to a series, or Web, of computers world wide and watch X hamster porn.

That these devices aren't the preserve of the super rich, but owned by most if not every Western adult and even school kid, makes it all the more incredible.
We have all these things yet we have one of the highest rates of employment ever. The things you mention have assisted people to carry out their work better, be more productive and produce to a better standard.
@Wordsmith is talking of everyone being paid by the state for doing nothing while the machines do everything and make decisions for us.

Apples and pears, dear boy.

My point, dear boy, is simply that AI is neither Utopia nor armageddon.

There won't be any choice. In a century from now, today's society will be unrecognisable.

The only question will be what we do with our leisure time. It may be there will be a lot more musicians, dancers, artists and so on about as people fill in their leisure time. It may be that space travel will allow us to colonise other parts of the solar system, with those wanting adventure leaving earth.

It may also be some dark 1984 like future with the thought police - who knows.

What is inevitable is that change is coming.
