The questions that bother me are these: 1. Factories are among the most complex technical and social systems in our societies. Is it possible to control such complex systems with even more complex algorithms? 2. Will the addition of complex technology solve the problems we failed to master over the past 50 years? Already at the time of 3.0, we saw painfully clear the clash between two worldviews that came about when craftsmen were replaced by machines; i.e., when we exchanged tools as extensions for humans and made humans extensions of tools.
