Towards Set-It-And-Forget-It Business Continuity

Few activities and operations are truly set it and forget it.

Lights-out factories like the showcase installation run by technology company Siemens are proof of concept, but still the exception.

Business continuity in most cases requires periodic adjustment because environments and conditions are constantly changing.

However, here’s a thought that could change that.

The idea comes from the combination of the self-driving vehicle and decentralised financial transactions, plus the Uber (or Lyft or whoever) model of hire-to-drive services.

In theory, the artificial intelligence in the vehicle would allow it to interact with the Uber model to acquire customers, and use a technology like blockchain (decentralised transactions) to receive payment for services rendered and make payments on its lease back to its manufacturer.
