Dean then shifted to focus on the primary topic of the meeting, the application of digital labor in the digital infra industry as a partial solution to the looming talent shortage. Jonathan Crane of Amelia backed Dean up with a fascinating background on the business case for and current status of digital professional labor. The participants were then witness to a demonstration of a real-world application of digital labor in the digital infra industry. Amelia managed capacity for a colocation provider, adding circuits dynamically under natural language text direction from a technician.
As usual, we then leveraged the experience of the iMasons in attendance by splitting into smaller discussion groups to brainstorm what roles in our industry could be served by digital labor, and the attendant benefits and challenges. Each group, in-person and virtual, reported their discussion. We wrapped the event, as usual, with a group photo of the assembled builders of the digital age.
Thanks to the crew at Amelia for hosting us in your beautiful HQ. It was an awesome meeting!
