efficiency and productivity in society
“The actual path of a raindrop as it goes down the valley is unpredictable, but the general direction is inevitable,” says digital visionary, Kevin Kelly — and technology is much the same, driven by patterns that are unexpected but inevitable.
Over the next 20 years, Kelly says, our penchant for making things smarter and smarter will have a profound impact on nearly everything we do. The 2nd industrial revolution will combine artificial power with artificial intelligence which flows across the grid – the cloud – in the same way as electricity does now. A main stream of this development will be automation/ robotics to increase efficiency and productivity in our society . Peak Resources agrees with Kevin Kelly’s vision and we believe that NdPr and permanent magnets will play a vital role in the applications involved in this transition.
