Here's a video of a mostly automated BMW car factory. Just face it. Robotics does a more efficient, more high precision job that humans could never do. Let the robots do the work.


Honestly it seems like the best field to get into nowadays is engineering design and development.

Yes we know all that but you haven't found a place for the unemployed in your Utopia version 4.0

Put them on benefits. They can use their free time to study while the robots and working class members can keep on working. If people had food and shelter they could focus on the arts and science.

A person in an earlier post told me about this sci-fi called The Expanse. In it people who couldn't find employment were put on Basic (unemployment benefits) or could go into a Governmental Education Institution (GEI).

It's just a sci-fi but I think it has good ideas.

Well. It seems our favorite super material graphene is front and center for Industry 4.0.


Researchers within the Graphene Flagship project, one of the biggest research initiatives of the European Commission, showed that integrated graphene-based photonic devices offer a unique solution for the next generation of optical communications. Researchers in the initiative have demonstrated how properties of graphene enable ultra-wide bandwidth communications coupled with low power consumption to radically change the way data is transmitted across the optical communications systems. This could make graphene-integrated devices the key ingredient in the evolution of 5G, the Internet-of-Things (IoT), and Industry 4.0. The findings were published in Nature Reviews Materials and highlighted on the cover.

phys.org, Oct. 12, 2018 - Graphene shows unique potential to exceed bandwidth demands of future telecommunications.

Because graphene efficiently transports electricity the integration into terahertz communication is a no-brainer.

Add to it the following developments from MIT (news.mit.edu):

Oct. 11, 2018 - Researchers quickly harvest 2-D materials, bringing them closer to commercialization,

Oct. 9, 2018 - A new path to solving a longstanding fusion challenge

I may be totally wrong about the timeline! 4.0 may actually already be happening but not released "into the wild" (i.e., the public). With billions poured into MIC and defense contractors (I know Lockheed has had graphene production figured out since at least 2013-ish, probably earlier; makes one wonder about the CFR), some of this tech is being kept close to the vest (so to speak).

Not only does our frame of reference (war mongering) need to change but we also need to stop being so wasteful (like polluting our planet with air pollution and plastic in the ocean).

If we can change those and become more of a positive species, one day, sooner rather than later, I may wake up into the Future!

Revised timeline: within 10 years.
