Future belongs to the machines.


Vardi reckons that half of workers across the globe will be replaced by machines within the next 30 years, wiping out middle-class jobs and "exacerbating inequality". He noted that robots would take over in many spheres of life, including automated driving and sex robots. As the Guardian reports, he also observed that this future is likely to mean humans have much more leisure time — indeed we may only work a handful of hours per week. ..

Work is essential.

However, this might not be the utopia we imagine. Vardi warned: "I do not find this a promising future, as I do not find the prospect of leisure-only life appealing. I believe that work is essential to human well being." Of course, if you don't have to do a job, life doesn't become 'leisure-only' — you can go for voluntary work for example. Perhaps Vardi is worried that many won't see it like that, though.

What I would like to know is, how are people going to afford to buy these products that AI Robots are making?

If most of our jobs are outsourced to Robots, what do we do to earn a fair living?

My "opinion" is the worlds biggest corporations and industries have become so GREEDY for more profits by eliminating jobs altogether.

What I see happening is a total global collapse coming because of greed, because more is not enough.

I see nothing wrong with robots taking "some" jobs, but not all the jobs.

ATS, what do you believe will happened to mankind if robots take our incomes from us?

In 2045 we wil have political parties that no longer fear immigrants, the new scapegoat will be the robots.
People will also find a new word for racism against robots, mark my words.
Damn robots will take over our jobs, away with them now we still can.

Now, this is an interesting topic. They 'gov'ts' here and there in different country's have been trying out giving a monthly sum of money to people, forgive me i don't remember what they call it at the moment, but this here creating robots to do all the work rather than people. The idea is Generous, People finally getting something back from their Gov't rather than being continually ripped off by it. But, this could lead to people not wanting a trade because Robots are all doing it for them. Just a thought..

It would seem as though they are purposely trying to neutralize humanity and control them completely in the next few decades to what ends, i cannot say only speculate. It is as though they are trying to create another Rome but with a technological twist, more like Modern day Rome meets 1984.

Good Post.

We'll all have to work in the entertainment industry, I suppose. Unless robots are doing that too.

The only jobs in demand will be Robot Repair Technicians! The rest of society will be living on welfare.

You are right.


I have some good friends that live near Orlando in a middle class neighborhood and down the road from them the city built a new shopping center.

They cannot fill the empty store fronts since they built them about 8 years ago, I have seen so many different new business come and go and the shopping center is still half empty.

Pretty pathetic indictment on the human race if we're too stupid or inefficient to do things ourselves.

But hell, people can't do math without a calculator anymore.

And we'll be on Mars and have flying cars by the year 2000 and computers will cut the work week down to 2 days a week.

...

Wait a minute....

Good point. But I believe they will design AI to repair robots.

I guess everyone alive will be living in Socialism by then.

I did read an article a couple of months ago of a European country really planning on giving all their citizens a monthly income, working or not.


Switzerland Mulls Giving Every Citizen $2,800 a Month


www.slate.com...

Are they trying to tell us something? I have to wonder.

When I went to school, we were not allowed to bring calculators to shool, it was concidered cheating in my days.

We all had to learned short, and long forms of mathmatics the hard way on paper.

The drive to maximize profits is one of the motivations towards robot mech. The economic system we live under has sought for decades now to remove workers from the workforce due to the financial needs to support a family. Wages cut into profit.

While the robot industry, has been developing over the last fifty years, as a stop gap move, jobs were outsourced to lands with lower wage requirements. Soon, as the OP points out even those less expensive workers will not be needed.

Thank you very much unbridled capitalism.

Same here.

Now try to remove an iPhone from someone.

They'll lose the ability to function.

I know, right! Who would have thought just ten years ago that a telephone would replace a computer? I sure did't see that coming.

I agree.


What do you belive will happen to mankind if there is no work? Are we to starve to death? Do you believe our corrupt government may release a deadly visus and kill off 90 % of the population? I have to wonder what the Powers That Be have instore for us.

If they are going to create robots to replace us, then kill us because we won't be needed . . .

Why not just kill us and save the money that would have been spent on robots!

You have a good point here.


I have to wonder if that is the plan The Powers That Be are going to do. The worlds government cannot afford to pay the entire population, I do not see that happening.

But I can see our governments unleashing a powerful virus to kill 90% of the world population to solve their problems.

They'll "cull the herd" once enough tech is in place to feed and comfortably shelter those deemed qualified to live.
