Once, a long time ago, a shovel was a marvel of modern technology. Today, a shovel is $3.99 at the hardware store. Who says the same won't happen with robotics ?

Monetize Automation?

I am involved with a project in which automated services and functions can be monetized using blockchain/smart contract technology. I'm looking for people that are interested, have opinions or can contribute their knowledge passion to the project.

Needed: Automation extension that can repeat movements/clicks in a browser


I'm looking something similar to Android's Clickmate, but for Chrome or Mac.

I need certain actions repeated in a browser window. Click/move cursor/click etc and repeat.

The problem I have found with the extensions I have tested is that they all seem to tie automated actions to DIV/element names, which makes it unusable for me, as they keep changing.

Any suggestions?

Is There AI that can code and debug by itself?

Often I pasted the code from chatgpt/phind and it has some errors or doesn't quite work. then I pasted the error and it will try to alter the code and repeat. I want the AI to run the code by itself, debug, test and optimize. Then send the result to me with demo after it's ready. I can give it a sandbox that they can install anything, spawn docker, etc.

Life gets busy—so I automated some of my SMS/text messaging, integrated ChatGPT and improved my communications

So, I posted this a little while back and got some great commentary.

Why am I posting again? Because I’ve improved the app and integrated ChatGPT for contextually-aware AI-generated messages.

Much like last time, here are the details:

Like others, perhaps, I tend to get deeply focused on a task and then I try not to stop until the task is complete. This “hyper-focus” allows me to produce very high-quality work in the shortest amount of time and allows me to be very productive when I’m able to do this.

The problem, for me, is this intense focus tends to keep me in a bubble of sorts and I tend not to reach out to those that are important to me often enough as a result. On top of this, well, I’m probably not the best communicator and the combination of these things has a negative effect on my relationships.

We all have reminders for lots of things, like, for example, birthdays. In the same context, I decided to undertake the crazy idea of writing an app to automate and remind me to send little text messages and call those that are important to me regularly. If you’re like me and need that extra push, the landing page for the app is here, but I have not yet updated it to reflect the AI-generated messages. Please know, at this time, only the beta version of the app supports the AI-generated message functionality.

Are there any organizations or groups working to prepare for automation?

Automation could put hundreds of millions of people out of work.

The common wisdom is that it will create just as many jobs as it replaces, in fields that we can't even imagine yet.

I don't believe that. And I don't think that we're prepared for hundreds of millions of people to lose their jobs. We don't have systems in place to take care of those people and their needs.

I'm scared that when/if this happens, society will try to ban automation and preserve those jobs. Essentially creating "busy work" for people.

I would rather embrace automation and garuntee access to housing, healthcare, education and utilities. Give people the freedom to pursue their interests and choose whether or not they want to have a job.

Are there any groups or organizations that share this vision of the future and are actively working to make it a reality?

Ideally by pushing legislation through congress and public advocacy?

This is something that I'm worried about and I want to find a way to get involved and put my energy towards something productive.

Best software for making Excel look presentable?

So I start a job that consists of being sent emails containing unsorted data that I am to input into Excel and make it look presentable - the information consists of item name, price and amount sold. I am to then send an email back once I am done

I am looking to automate this as much as possible. It seems that both Python and PowerAutomate are good for automatically importing email data as well as automatically exporting back to the same email address at the end of the day. However, neither seem to offer any sort of Excel templates that I can use to automatically sort the data

Thanks for any help

Lip Generation at Your Finger Tips

I want to be clear that the following is an advertisement for my company so nobody feels misled. Anyways... on to the post.

Earlier today my team and I released Deepshot–the world’s first fully customizable dialogue generation and replacement tool.

Deepshot (deepshot dot ai) opens endless possibilities in the world of content creation. The following are some use cases:

-Video Translations

-Correcting mistakes in existing content

-Spicing up old content

-Using old content to create completely new videos, all from the comfort of your home

-Adding special guests/appearances to your videos

-Creating fully automated scripts for eLearning courses and tutorials

-Improving customer service with conversation automation

-Generating personalized content for users with unique interests

-And much more!

Knowing that safety is a big concern that comes with a product like this, I want to take time to go in depth on what we are currently doing along with what we plan to do to prevent potential misuse cases.

For starters, we decided against offering any sort of free trial. By doing this, we are able to ensure that all accounts are linked to card holders. Unfortunately however, the existence of prepaid debit cards provides a rather straightforward work around, allowing users to create accounts anonymously. With that in mind, we decided to temporarily scale down generated video quality until we have a foolproof solution to prevent bad actors from abusing our platform. We hope that by doing so, we are able to prevent videos generated on Deepshot from being confused as real and authentic.

Feel free to leave any feedback or questions you might have and don’t hesitate to share any ideas you might have to make Deepshot a safer platform.

Thanks for taking the time to read this,

When it comes to automation, is it more likely that ChatGPT will replace white collar jobs first, or, that humanoid robots or robots will replace physical jobs/tradesman jobs?

AI tools for a singer wanting to create music?

Hi folks, my wife is a singer and she likes to write songs as a hobby. She asked me if was there any kind of AI tool in which she could upload a recording of her singing, and the tool would add the instruments to go along with it. I tried looking for it and found some interesting tools, but nothing like that. Does anyone know it?

Sorry if this is not the right place to post it, but I though members here could know it!

The Future of Automation: Transforming the Manufacturing Industry

Hey Reddit,

Wanted to share our thoughts on the future of automation in the manufacturing industry. Over the next 10 years, we are poised to witness a remarkable transformation in this traditionally stable and conventional field.

In recent years, the manufacturing industry has experienced a surge in technological advancements and exciting new developments. The COVID-19 pandemic, while introducing uncertainties, has also acted as a catalyst for the adoption of cutting-edge technology such as automation, integration, AI, and more.

So, what can we expect in the coming years? One notable trend to watch is the increased role of interconnected robots, also known as co-bots. These programmable and interconnected bots can work alongside human counterparts, helping to execute mundane tasks with impeccable precision. The combination of human expertise and robotic efficiency holds great promise for enhancing productivity in the manufacturing process.

Additionally, the adoption of true Industry 4.0 for automation will revolutionize the industry. Industry 4.0 refers to the integration of advanced technologies like AI, IoT, and robotics into manufacturing and other sectors. The ultimate goal is to create "smart factories" that are highly efficient, flexible, and responsive to market conditions. This transformative shift will empower manufacturers to optimize operations, reduce costs, and deliver products with greater speed and customization.

Now, let's talk about the elephant in the room: AI. With the rapid advancements in artificial intelligence, it's natural to wonder how it will shape the future of automation. AI has the potential to streamline and automate various tasks, making quick work of processes that were once labor-intensive. However, it's important to recognize that certain elements will still require human involvement. Tasks that demand creativity, critical thinking, complex decision-making, and empathy will continue to be areas where human presence is indispensable. Continue reading...

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the future of automation in the manufacturing industry. What trends do you find most exciting? How do you envision the role of AI in shaping this landscape? Let's discuss and explore the possibilities together!
