    One of the many issues facing the innovators exploring the capabilities of our digital age, is the loss of human proficiency backing up the replacement proficiency. When is too much reliance on the automated system detrimental to safety?

    Recall the Exxon Valdez, when the pilots were distracted by a newly installed automated guidance system, and ran aground?

    My car has an automatic cruse control that slows to maintain a safe distance behind the vehicle ahead. I love it. But what if I am fiddling with the AC or sound system, rather than making sure my car does not get too close?

    Sadly it seems we do not learn the "right" or "best" answer until we experience the unintended consequences of technological innovation.
