  2. Please send me, in a well written email, Claudia’s perception of YOUR BRANDI realize her encounter with you was only during today’s class, for a few moments.  However, often times, our opportunities to influence someone about your brand, who might observe you with others, at an event, class, or just walking down a school corridor with others, is only for a few moments.  But, their observation COULD be impactful.  You never know who will make a decision about a future opportunity and who in their network they will reach out to ask questions about your brand.  This is why you always need to be aware of your actions in public.   PEOPLE FORM PERCEPTIONS ABOUT YOUR BRAND DURING BRIEF MOMENTS.  Please make sure your description of Claudia’s perception of your brand has perfect spelling, good grammar and punctuation, and short sentences by Tuesday, May 14, 2019.  Thank you.  I look forward to this answer.  Your assessment will provide interesting insights into the present status of your personal development strategy.  I look forward to providing you with my assessment how Claudia perceived your brand TODAY.

The challenge, hopefully the excitement, for us all will be how we exploit, take advantage of, the capabilities of technology for our exciting career and/or entrepreneurial opportunities.

THE NEXT VIDEO IS NOT PART OF THE HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT.  I’VE INCLUDED IT BECAUSE I thought some of you would be interested in watching this conversation between a human, named Carlos, and Sophia, the AI humanoid robot we observed at the FUTURE FORUM . Sophia is teaching Carlos how to meditate. After the ‘greet and meet‘ and the start of Sophia’s instruction, most of the video is silent as you observe Carlos and Sophia meditating. However, don’t miss the end of the video when Sophia brings Carlos out of his meditation. Interesting? Unnerving? Weird? Sad? Was Sophia disappointed Carlos had to leave? Human tendencies? What do you think?  BY THE WAY, the company which created Sophia, Hanson Robotics, has created 9 robot humanoid “siblings” of Sophia named Alice, Albert Einstein Hubo, BINA48, Han, Jules, Professor Einstein, Philip K. Dick Android, Zeno, and Joey Chaos.
