Mogic thinks

With a combination of a small number of people + software + servers and robots.
We are promoting a new era of company management.
I hope to share some of the process in this section.

Computing power in one hand.

I once had a supermarket expert share with me the secret of their assortment.

I apologize for my vague recollection, but ...... said that it is not enough to only have products that sell well, but you must also have products that sell only occasionally, otherwise overall sales (number of visits to the store, number of purchases, etc.) will drop.

The products located around the perimeter from the entrance are the ones that sell well, such as vegetables, fish, meat, drinks, and bread, while the ones that do not sell well but are important are the seasonings and canned goods in the center.

I remember feeling that even though it was a supermarket made by people, it was kind of like an ecological balance.

It's not something that can be measured by a single measure of product sales, but rather a whole that is made up of various things that play their own roles here and there.

I would like to quote a hypothesis that touched on such an exquisite balance in the environment around us.

You live with 200,000 species.
Your home is an ecosystem. - You live with 200,000 species.

He believed that the loss of biodiversity would also "hurt" the human immune system, causing it to malfunction.

The most direct stepping stone to such thinking was the hypothesis and series of studies that chronic autoimmune diseases are related to overly clean and hygienic living.

This "hygiene hypothesis" was first proposed by David Strawn, an epidemiologist at St. George's Medical School, University of London, in 1989.

Hanski, Hartera, and von Hertzen believed that exposure to a wide variety of organisms in the environment, in the house, and on the body must play some role in keeping the peacekeeping pathways of the immune system functioning properly.

Without the opportunity for such exposure, the immune system reacts by producing IgE antibodies, which cause inflammatory reactions to various antigens that are not actually dangerous, such as dust mites, chrysalis cockroaches, mold fragments, and even self cells.

If children are not sufficiently exposed to wildlife, the regulatory pathways will not play their role.

Allergies, asthma, and other problems - that's what they thought. It was an exciting hypothesis, but one that needed to be tested.
They thought...

The theory is that the body's immune system, which has been built on the premise of being in contact with a wide variety of living things, can be thrown out of balance by an environment that is too clean for its own good.

Whether this is really the case or not remains to be verified, but even so, I feel that the relationships between living things and between living things and their environment are often complex and difficult to understand.

There is a wide range of scales, from nano to meter, and the flow of time is also different.

We have been able to simplify and handle things that would otherwise be difficult to understand.

However, with the increasing computing power in our hands, tracing and deciphering intricate things will become the norm in the future.
