My weekly newsletter favorites for AI and IoT and Blockchain Trends

I comb through the following web sources for trending news relating to the evolution and social impact of these far reaching technologies – AI, Robotics, IoT and of course the biggie blockchain technology. The important perspective to keep in mind with blockchain technology is the impact is much broader than you may think. For a good baseline understanding of the wide impact of blockchain technology (on many industries), download the free E-Book: Blockchain for Dummies.  IBM’s web content does an excellent job of explaining blockchain to executives. Bottom line it’s not just about digital currency.

I’m particularly curious about the future impact of these technologies on employment in the coming years 2020’s and 2030’s. You see, I have seven grandkids, and I’m curious to learn how I can help them be better prepared to enter the employment market and capture good salaries.  I have already given two talks at Baylor School of Communication regarding employment preparedness in the age of AI and Machine Intelligence in the workforce.

Here are my top sources these days and yes these are free: –  provides relevant information and intelligence on 50 thousand topics. – TOPBOTS educates business leaders on high-impact applications of modern machine learning and A.I. techniques and helps leading organizations adopt and implement emerging technologies.
