Canada Goose ! - பொன் முட்டையிடும் வாத்து கதை

‘The Goose with the Golden Eggs’, attributed to Aesop, the Greek fabulist, became popular worldwide. There are many similar stories in every culture! 

பொன் முட்டையிடும் வாத்து கதை நிச்சயம் அறிவீர்கள் !!  - வாத்து எங்காவது தங்க முட்டை போடுமா ! என ஆராய வேண்டாம்!  - அப்படி ஒன்று கிடைத்தால், பேராசை கொண்ட மனிதர்கள் வேறு என்ன செய்வார்கள் என்பதுதான் நீதி !!


Pictured here is not a duck but a  goose -  a bird of any of several waterfowl species in the family Anatidae. This group comprises the genera Anser (the grey geese and white geese) and Branta (the black geese).  The term "goose" may refer to such bird of either sex, but when paired with "gander", refers specifically to a female one (the latter referring to a male). Young birds before fledging are called goslings. The collective noun for a group of geese on the ground is a gaggle; when in flight, they are called a skein, a team, or a wedge; when flying close together, they are called a plump. 

The Canada goose (Branta canadensis), is a large wild goose with a black head and neck, white cheeks, white under its chin, and a brown body. It is native to the arctic and temperate regions of North America, and it is occasionally found during migration across the Atlantic in northern Europe. It has been introduced to many other parts of the globe including Europe.


Canada Goose is a famous luxury apparel brand – founded in 1957 in a small warehouse in Toronto, Canada Goose has grown into one of the world’s leading manufacturers of performance luxury apparel. When Dani Reiss took the reins as CEO of Canada Goose at age 27, he was running a company that brought in $2.2 million per year in revenue. Today, the luxury brand is worth $1.1 billion. Canada Goose parkas, with their iconic shoulder patches, cost more than $1,000 and the company sells more than one million jackets a year. 

In today’s high-tech landscape, the ancient fable of the goose that laid the golden eggs imparts profound wisdom. The farmer in that tale weighed the decision to continue accumulating wealth slowly by selling the golden eggs that his magical goose laid (one per day) or taking a risk by killing the goose to harvest all of the gold within it at once. (Ultimately, the farmer chose the murderous path only to discover the goose did not contain any riches.) 

Just as the farmer faced thorny decisions in the tale, modern tech executives grapple with complex choices between immediate returns and long-term potential while also maintaining a competitive edge. In the real world, an artificial intelligence (AI) system that can generate patentable outputs stands as the metaphorical “goose” while the inventions it produces are analogous to the “golden eggs.” 

Artificial intelligence is coming to the animal kingdom as  some researchers are starting to use advanced facial recognition techniques to track  duck species.
