Combinations of human and machine outperform either working alone


AGCO’s executives think the new version of Google Glass helps tamp down suspicions that they are replacing workers with robots that does their job better. They say they’re helping them do their job better. For tasks they have mastered, workers don’t need to look at the Glass screen. But they can wake it at any time to see where a part must go, and even zoom into an object on the display for more detail. Glass tells them, for example, what kind of bolt is needed—a wrong-sized bolt could seriously damage a motor—and specifies which wrench to use and how much torque is required.
