The Romans were renowned as great engineers and this is evident in the many structures that they left behind. One particular type of construction that the Romans were famous for is their roads. It was these roads, which the Romans called via, that enabled them to build and maintain their empire. How did they create this infrastructure that has withstood the passing of time better than most its modern counterparts?
Roman roads consisted of three layers – a foundation layer on the bottom, a middle layer, and a surface layer on the top. The foundation layer often consisted of stones or earth. Other materials used to form this layer included: rough gravel, crushed bricks, clay material, and even piles of wood when roads were being built over swampy areas. The following layer would be composed of softer materials such as sand or fine gravel. This layer may have been formed by several successive layers.
This is an unprecedented blog post with videos showing the already extinction of infrastructure jobs. The above video shows a neat vehicle that robotically fixes roads to maximum efficiency like never before. It eliminates teams of workers and does not hold up traffic.
Self healing roads, some times spend millions in road replacement. The videos awesomely displays the road invention that eliminate many infrastructure jobs and allow road to last almost forever. In Rome they filled the roads with Volcanic Ash, today Ash and Micro-silica. This is great for communities seeking to save money.
Houses can be built fast efficiently and sustainable. Like the only surviving house in Puerto Rico, these will stand up to horrible weather and be a solution for the homeless problem.
Bridges, no problem. bridges are designed where they have to be maintained in many ways. The Roman’s knew bridges and there ones they build still stand. The Chinese developed a way to build bridges and they will be sustainable and made with as little workers as possible.
The other video shows the elimination of labor on bridge building.
New Bricks for Sustainability, varies materials in home making and community design will be sustainable and reduce the need for infrastructure maintenance.
Robots can be involved in assembly of other structures. There are batters and transducers that take homes off the grid for free electricity.
Here is our case for automated Sustainability and Infrastructure.
Justification for a Living Universal Basic Income shows that jobs are temporary and technology will then take to future infrastructure jobs.
So why Rome, the “still sustainable city”? For starters, there is probably no other city in the world where the quantity of new construction is so outnumbered by the existing building stock, the latter being adaptively reused again and again. I know of no better example of sustainable urban development than the Theatre of Marcellus, a Roman monument begun at the time of Julius Caesar, continuously in use in one way or another until the present day when it houses apartments and offices.
an Automation Engineer who will be responsible for deploying and integrating scripts and recipes to automate Systems configurations and COTS configurations in complex server environments. These environments, a mix of servers, workstations, and custom hardware, provide the backbone for the operational system of a critical, strategic national asset. The environments also support product development, testing, and maintenance.
Most Infrastructure organizations have automation programs in place, but there’s some risk that these efforts (e.g. working on cloud orchestration and service desk automation at the same time) can become disconnected as they get deeper into implementation.
While jobs are temporary and transient, economic security is forever. infrastructure automation was a problem that mattered mostly for large-scale public web applications, internet service providers, and very complicated enterprise projects. In those kinds of environments, the cost of manually setting up servers would obviously be high enough to justify using a sophisticated automation framework.
The need to maintain and economically and ecologically be sustainable can be done through maximum efficiency with automation rather than human labor. It engineers will be needed, but there will be less workers need to fill positions because the technology, such as sonar, can do these job more efficiently and with great accuracy beyond human efforts.
