Nissan’s Battery Technology Will Be USed By APB

Nissan recently announced they have licensed an advanced battery tech to Tokyo-based APB Corporation who is planning on building a factory in Japan with backing from several major companies.

Nissan’s LEAF Powers An Electric Fan

Who can forget the horror on CNN when, in 2011, an earthquake caused a tsunami that decimated large swathes of Japan? The little van in a futile race against the flood.

Machines are coming to take your job, and once they have it, they will . . . HAHAHAAA!!!! No, actually, they are not.

Automation, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) are scary. This is because they, in our lifetime terms, have disrupted and changed the world we work in. People see the factory of the future devoid of people, machines making things, AI deciding how they should make them.
