Deutsche Welle has a documentary on the rise of space-based internet service providers.

Internet connectivity anywhere in the world would be sehr fantastisch!

The digital revolution has radically changed the way we live and work. But more than three billion people are still offline. As with any infrastructure, fast data connections initially reach urban centers. People who live in rural areas, even in rich industrialized countries, often have to get by without reduced bandwidth. Now several consortia are competing to bridge this gap with the help of hundreds of mini-satellites in low orbit.

The documentary “Will A Robot Steal My Job?“ provides an interesting look at what innovations in AI and robotics will do to the job market.

We think of robots as primarily being in factories; but the reality is that lawyers, accountants and even artists, are facing a future in which their livelihoods are threatened by artificial intelligence. From self-driving Tesla cars, to robo-journalists writing news by algorithm, artificially intelligent comedians, to state-of-the-art sex-robots, we are facing a future where vast swathes of the population will indeed surrender their job to machines. But Anne-Marie asks, is there also an opportunity: to adapt to a radically changing future, to adopt the technology, and to harness the rise of the robots for our own good? 

VICE explores the sad state of affairs when it comes to repairing modern technology-driven farm equipment.

When it comes to repair, farmers have always been self reliant. But the modernization of tractors and other farm equipment over the past few decades has left most farmers in the dust thanks to diagnostic software that large manufacturers hold a monopoly over. 

ElderFox Documentaries follows the Curiosity Rover on Mars as it climbs up a Martian mountain named Mount Sharp.

A quick summary of the Journey:

Landing in the Gale Crater, Curiosity heads towards Yellowknife Bay, taking its first drive over ‘Glenelg’. In Yellowknife Bay, Curiosity finds the first evidence that the Gale Crater was once filled with salty water.

Curiosity goes on to explore the Bagnold Dunes and crosses through the Naukluft Plateau into Murray Buttes where it begins to ascend Mount Sharp. Climbing on top of ‘Vera Rubin Ridge’ provides Curiosity with a magnificent view, from where we started in the Gale Crater.
