A new batch of ominous warnings about job-killing robots just arrived from the usual suspects, very clever, credentialed, accomplished people mingling at a glamourous watering-hole: in this case, the Milken Institute's Global Conference in Beverly Hills, California.These warnings tend to follow a predictable script: sufficiently urgent to get attention, but fuzzy enough to stop short of alarming.Warnings about the impact of robotics on people s jobs almost always have a temporizing quality: for example, at this conference robots are capable of taking over low-skill document management or Wall Street spreadsheet jockeys specialized jobs, yet aren t at the point of actually eliminating broad job categories.It is old school, beginning as a one-way transfer of data from computer green screens via the terminal s memory.It s also often an interface of last resort for an old school problem, the challenges organizations face in linking legacy systems with new applications, including lack of legacy documentation, source code and lost skillsets.This use is what many people are referring to when they speak about swivel-chair automation.Related Article: Buying In the Cloud: How Cloud Technology is Revolutionizing the Retail IndustryRPA PerceptionBut moving to web-scraping technology still left RPA with two major limitations, both of which reinforced the perception this robotic technology could only play a limited role, with limited scope, in business process automation.Limited Role in Process AutomationWhile web-scraping is highly effective, it customarily takes place at the task level while employees typically operate at both the task and activity level.The answer would appear to be yes; according to the Everest Group, 78 percent of GICs have either implemented RPA or are actively planning pilots.Related Article: When Tech Meets Pets: How Technology Is Serving Man's Best FriendWhat About AI & Cognitive, etc.?But what of the exotic technologies so many thought leaders are waiting for: AI, cognitive, machine learning?The answer is that they re important and will broaden RPA s footprint in ways that are hard to fully envision.

You already know it s good to keep your CPR chops up to date so you can help a human, but dogs and cats can benefit from CPR too.Pets don t commonly have the same type of cardiac arrest that humans do, so you re less likely to meet a dog who needs CPR than you are a person.Send someone to call an emergency vet clinic, and proceed.If they re not breathing, give 4-5 rescue breaths, watching the chest rise and fall.Check for a pulse using the artery on the inside of the dog s thigh.For a rule of thumb, the rhythm of Stayin Alive about 100 beats per minute is a good speed for dogs and cats as well as for humans.

Made for children, they say, and "playful adults", Gululu contains your water and encourages you to drink said water.If the water bottle stays within range of your smartphone, updates on the amount of water your child is drinking will come immediately.Of course she quickly figured out how to game the system by pouring water in and out of the bottle, but that's beside the point.Though we were unable to test this feature as we've got just one bottle at the moment, kids will be able to shake their Glululu bottles near one another to become friends in the Glululu app - their friends' Glululu pets will appear in their bottle, and they compare scores through the future.It's easy to forget to screw the cap of this bottle back on before shaking the bottle - wetness ensues.Most crowdfunding sites, like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, have policies about what happens to your money if the project fails to deliver on its goals, but choosing to back a project is inevitably a risk.
The company s bottle, launching on Kickstarter today, is the newest, most high-tech weapon in the battle to get kids to imbibe enough liquids throughout the day.Cute, no?The water bottle has a small screen built in, and additional sensors mean that shaking two bottles in close proximity to each other make the pets friends, enabling them to interact.The company claims the Gulülu will stay juiced for four days before another recharge is required.Parents can also schedule sleep or school modes, during which the pets go to sleep and become unresponsive, so the pets don t become a distraction during sleeping or learning hours.The company estimates a shipping date of September, and the recommended retail price will be $129 once the products start making an appearance on shelves.

Dory seems excited for the released of "Finding Dory."Real-life blue tang probably not so much.Now that Disney knows the effect Finding Nemo had on clownfish, they should prepare for the effect Finding Dory will have on blue tang by doing their part to warn folks who see the movie," states an online petition that's gathered more than 60,000 signatures so far.The Saving Nemo Conservation Fund says more than 1 million clownfish are taken from reefs every year and sold as pets thanks to the popularity of Finding Nemo, according to the Hollywood Reporter.That means 100% of blue tang bought by and for Dory-loving children will come from the wild, and conservationists have no way of replacing them.I really think Disney would not intend for their films to harm the actual animals their characters are based off, and adding a PSA at the beginning of the movie would be such an easy way to help prevent that, Kelsey Bourgeois, who created the online petition, tells Fox News.
