It’s the year 2045 and the robots have finally taken over the world. And humans live in a world where robots hold all the power. They are in charge of everything, from the government to the local coffee shop.
The above scenario might be a stretch of Jay Jayamohan’s imagination, but the Executive Director of the Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Harrisburg University (HU) writes about the topic of automation and the transformation of jobs through a combination of robotics and artificial intelligence in his latest column for Times of India. The piece, Ready or not, here comes the new year… and robots!? is found online at https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/blogs/innovate-or-die/ready-or-not-here-comes-the-new-year-and-robots/
Jayamohan is a leading expert in disruptive innovation, design thinking, and strategic management. He has worked extensively with Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies, the US government, startups, venture capitalists, and foundations. As executive director of the Harrisburg University Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, he is responsible for creating a multi-pronged, interconnected hub that aligns business activities across campus and across disciplines. He leads the effort to establish this important permanent center of innovation to create greater impact, social and business, by having innovative thinkers and entrepreneurs from Harrisburg who join with students, faculty and society to collaborate on ideas and solve problems.
Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship’s (CIE) mission is to empower innovators to build successful ventures by providing the infrastructure and resources, with a special focus on serving the underrepresented minority. Unlike other programs focusing on pie-in-the sky pitches delivered over an accelerator program, we provide the support and infrastructure to build any person’s idea in a thoughtful way with the guidance of the right kind of experienced entrepreneurs.
