2021 New York Local Chapter Meeting
iMasons members in the New York City area met on September 30, 2021 (3:00-5:00pm ET) for a Local Chapter meeting. The primary topic of the meeting focused on the application of digital labor in the digital infrastructure industry as a partial solution to the looming talent shortage. 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.
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.
