Robert Deignan is the Chief Executive Officer and helped in the establishment of ATS Digital Services. ATS Digital Services was founded in August 2011. Prior to joining ATS Digital Services, Deignan worked at iS3 as the Executive Deputy President. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management accredited to the University of Purdue. He graduated from the University of Purdue in 1995. The future of innovative technology is expected to involve a percentage increase in automation in all industries. Automation is expected to have a large impact that will affect a lot of people, inclusive of technology experts such as Robert Deignan.

This however, does not conclude that technology experts and researchers of artificial intelligence have not disclosed their predictions on automation in the near future economy. Future of Humanity Institute, a branch of Oxford University, published a report that talks of how long it will take for automation to compromise employee’s jobs in various industries. Some tasks that may end up being taken over by automation range from automation labor to writing by successful authors. This era of automation is not yet expected for another century as well as research for artificial intelligence.

Despite the negativity of automation replacing human jobs with artificial intelligence machines, Deignan gives hope for those threatened by the rise of automation. Anxiety about automation can be replaced with a personal positivity of responding to automation positively. Positive thinking of collaborating to work in partnership with technology may reduce misplaced automation. Researchers disclose that in 120 years to come, artificial intelligence machines are expected to have a fifty percent rate of wiping human jobs.

Currently, artificial intelligence machines are limited to perform a small number of tasks. Deignan states that most people prefer working hand in hand with fellow humans as opposed to collaborating with artificial intelligence machines. Oxford university’s report shows a variety of tasks that automation will be overtaken from humans. These include social workers, health care social workers, audiologists, recreational therapy and occupational therapy. The report positively comments of most people being able to keep their jobs in the future.

He assists research and development organizations and advises them on issues related to technology, design and other consulting services.

As an investor, Michael Hagele says he is very excited for the advancement of artificial intelligence. “We’re using machine learning algorithms to find patterns,” Hagele explained. “These patterns and insights can provide evidence to justify program expansion.” Hagele says this reduces costs and creates the entry level groundwork required to see results.

The secret of success, according to Michael Hagele, is to exercise regularly. “I think physical activity plays a big role in recharging and sharpening your mind.” he says. This is the reason he spends so much time in the mountains on his bike.

Hagele recommends reading Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. “{The book is] a fascinating account of the birth of the United States,” he explains.

Shervin pishevar was born in the year 1974 in Tehran, the capital city of the Republic of Iran. Shervin Pishevar was born to two parents. His father was called Abraham Pishevar while his mother was called Eshrat Pishevar. Abraham Pishevar worked at a local media house as a Radio and television executive manager in Tehran. Something terrible later happened. Abraham together with his other colleagues was accused by the Iran government of broadcasting materials that would aid Iranians to manage to flee Iran to other foreign nations.

Abraham’s name was included on Ayatollah Khomeini’s execution document. This shocked Abraham Pishevar. He organized himself and later left the country to the United States. When he got to the US, he was jobless. He, however, got a job where he worked as a cab driver. He operated at Silver Spring Maryland. Eighteen months later Abraham Pishevar was joined by the rest of his family that was left behind in Iran. Before he left for the US, Abraham Pishevar had pursued a master’s degree in Tehran, Iran. While still a taxi driver, Abraham managed to cater for his family and also saved some funds to further his education.

Abraham joined the University of Howard where he studied and later graduated with a PhD in mass communication. While Shervin Pishevar was still a young boy, his parents encouraged him to pursue a medical career. Shervin was privileged to attend school at Montgomery Blair High School. The institution was a Science and math school.

At his tender age, Shervin managed to campaign and win an election to become a student board member of Montgomery County Board of Education. While in the board, Shervin Pishevar proposed a $10 be paid by taxpayers to the school. He suggested that the funds be used to support the schools mechanical and woodworking sessions. Shervin was a young genius. Still, at the same school, Shervin pishevar started a science project on Megainin peptides. He at one time received a presidential fellowship so that he could further his studies. Instead of doing what his parents advised him, Shervin Pishevar decided to do what he liked, being an entrepreneur.
