For now, public attitudes seem surprisingly positive towards AI — at least in relation to workplace applications.
Several months ago, Microsoft released its work trend index, which surveyed 31,000 people in 31 countries. Nearly three-quarters (70%) of respondents said they would like to delegate as much work as possible to AI to lessen their current workload.
For its part, Microsoft said: “AI is poised to create a whole new way of working.”
While there appears to be broad agreement on that point, there is less consensus on what the future workplace will look like. At least in the near-term, AI will augment people to improve productivity, avoiding large-scale workforce displacement.
The New Face of AR: Ambient & Intelligent
by Mike Boland | AR Insider
AR Insider: During Meta’s recent Connect event, Mark Zuckerberg said something that caught our attention. Buried beneath sexier unveilings and crowd cheers for Quest 3’s impressive and up-leveled specs, Zuckerberg characterized Meta’s intention to lean into AR’s near-term realities.
Specifically, he painted a picture of AR that deviates from common connotations and future gazing. Rather than a field of vision populated by holographic dragons and whales, it will be more about useful information delivered through text and audio… sort of an AR-enabled personal assistant.

Darkened by the Moon’s Shadow
NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) captured the lunar shadow during the Oct. 14 annular solar eclipse. The sensor provides frequent global views of Earth from its position at Lagrange Point 1, a gravitationally stable point between the Sun and Earth about 1.5 million kilometers from Earth.
DSCOVR is a space weather station that monitors changes in the solar wind, providing space weather alerts and forecasts for geomagnetic storms that could disrupt power grids, satellites, telecommunications, aviation and GPS.
