Not many people will argue with talk about improving the makerspace experience.
Where we could go off the rails is when we add machine learning to our discussion, which is a form of automation.
This is understandable because in the past automation has meant the lessening of the member experience.
The challenge is how do you deliver a high level of service at workforce scale. You could make the case that the only way to replicate the makerspace experience is with some form of automation or machine learning.
The use of machine learning by large transnational corporations could force a lot of very serious people to have to make other economic arrangements in a hurry. This makes workforce scale makerspace development a necessity sooner rather than later.
