Google Exec: 5 Mega Trends Shape Technology

Google Geospatial Expert on AgriTalk at AgTech Expo

As Google’s geospatial technologist, or as he refers to himself, geographer in residence, Ed Parsons outlined at least five megatrends driving technology during his keynote at the Farm Journal AgTech Expo.

  1. The world is becoming more urban, not suburban. 
  2. Digital natives have formed a new type of consumer.
  3. Big data is still in its early days, but platforms are providing a massive difference in the shape of business. 
  4. Disintermediation means that if you don’t add value to the process, then you will be removed.
  5. Information has to be accessible.

Those megatrends will shape how new technologies are built. One of the building blocks will be remote sensing. He also adds that precise positioning is making large advances, particularly in smartphones.

“There’s no one silver bullet to go into ag tech,” Parsons says. “It’s going to come from small companies taking existing technologies and making them simple and less complex, which will make them more accessible.”

Personne n'est une île isolée. De toute évidence, les gens sont des animaux grégaires, chacun d'entre eux formant une relation spéciale avec quelqu'un à proximité dans certaines circonstances. replique montre Cependant, ce à quoi nous ne pensons pas, c'est que les individus individuels et individuels du groupe seront indépendants et formeront une relation spéciale.Dans "L'ouzbek", l'auteur mentionne des points de vue très intéressants qui sont contraires à certaines de nos connaissances. Par exemple, dans le groupe, l'intelligence, la conscience et la personnalité de l'individu seront affaiblies, la qualité inconsciente occupera le dessus, formant la conscience collective. Cette conscience collective est temporaire et a certains prémisses. Peu importe à quel point l'intelligence de l'individu est supérieure, il y a un niveau de médiocrité dans le groupe qui intègre chaque individu. Cartier Cela contredisait notre célèbre "Trois Stooges l'un sur l'autre". Il suffit de nous faire savoir pourquoi la «tyrannie de la majorité» est apparue dans la Grèce antique et pourquoi Socrate, qui a maintenu la vérité, sera exilé.
