Meanwhile, this gadget is also in the office of Laundry Expert, Google Home.
The passing employees can not leave it; "Hey Google tell me a joke".
During Christmas, Home Alone is one of the most watched films.
Boy, I often enjoyed that together with my children. Google has developed a wonderful advertising spot in which Google Home is used by Kevin McCallistar, who is now 38 years old. Look for this Home Alone advertisement. A hilarious parody of the changes in the future.
I do not think it's news that technology and artificial intelligence will cause major changes in the near future. This is no longer a question of decades but of years. In our daily lives we now take many decisions that will eventually come under strong influence of technology. Sometimes even taken over by the technique. The fact that computers become smarter than people already poses ethical dilemmas.
There is a lot to be said about it, but major changes will also occur within the Laundry business.
Smart applications will proactively record information that will, for example, replace bearings before they are audibly worn out. Healthcare also expects great things from A.I. An intelligent computer detects and recognizes small changes and abnormalities much more accurately than a doctor of flesh and blood. Care robots will take over tasks from nurses and supervisors. Many times more than in the present the process in the laundry will be controlled with A.I. The number of employees is expected to decrease considerably in the direct execution of the washing process.
At Laundry Expert we embrace a lot of state-of-the-art technology.
It helps us in the passion to unburden optimally in the washing process. This is not only important, but especially in healthcare. The fact that personal clothing is lost or damaged in the washing process will soon be a thing of the past. Employees in healthcare have less and less time available to worry about clean clothes. They too are busy to integrate all innovations in the technology into their daily activities.
However, I am also convinced that people continue to make the difference. It is precisely in this time and in the time to come that real attention, love and involvement are extremely important to each other. During this time of Christmas we are inclined to pay extra attention to this. Really paying attention to each other could become very important and not just because of an extra focus during Christmas.
I have tried it:
Hey Google, what is attention? That is the cognitive process of consciously observing the environment. (In brief)
Hey Google, what is involvement? That you feel connected to the organization you work for. (In brief)
I do not know how you do it but these are fairly limited answers in my experience. Now I feel very connected to the organization
Laundry expert, but the involvement with each other is different from 'the organization'. We will join in the coming years. We want to go Sky high with the application of new technology. But we also want to develop more and more as experts in real attention! From there we create the ideal laundry of the future!
