You also have to ask what will happen to those who either will not or cannot transition.

Because you know some just plain won't re-educate and some won't be able to absorb the skills needed for a new job.


yep , its a huge transition that i dont think will be handled well nor for the right reasons.

sadly its in the works and its coming whether we want it or not regardless if we are ready for it or not.

like globalization it will bastardized and exploited against those who are less fortunate.

NO! NO! NO! I want off this damned rock now.

First off its a matter of time that the robot goes from "flipping burgers" teen age work....right how many of you can say they were cooking 35 burgers 7 steaks, and pork chops. Plus vegetables and sauce to go with them all. Sauces you made from scratch only hours previous. Lets see your teenager do that. I say this because when people hear service industry they think your McChain restaurants. Cooking is a craft that takes YEARS of practice and skill to master. It is also one of the few lines of work where a know nothing dropout, a felon, some vagabond hillbilly or your immigrant legal or not can make something of themselves. I myself am all but a couple of those. (And at 31 have a very good life and family I wouldn't have dreamed of when I dropped out of high school.)Most vocations wouldn't allow any of those. I think when it comes to A.I. we should stop and really think. It could cause some major societal problems if we don't. Also stop referring to cooks and Chefs as "burger flippers" or crying about "muh $15 an hour". Its a tough job the majority of America couldn't handle.

whst people dont see is how easy AI and robotics could replace doctors and the medical field.

you go to walmart step into a machine like today that takes your blood pressure but also draws your blood and does an analysis on the spot and other vitals. then based on a touch screen and answering some questions with the analysis it gives you a prescription on the spot. could even be done from home if you purchase the right equipment and connect it to your smart phone and internet.

those things would also bring down the cost of healthcare but doctors and other industries are currently to powerful and wont let it get of the ground.

Ah, no. AI is getting entrenched in all sorts of professions - including the law, AND the medical field.

Most economic analysis says that Trump's push to "Buy American" is what's accelerating the shift to automation.

It's all about money, and being competitive in the global marketplace. Please don't blame the workers who just want a living wage.

Exactly, my point was that its not just remedial teenager jobs that can be replaced. This is a huge impact to all sorts of people regardless of education.

Grills need to be cleaned constantly and that robot doesn't look like it's equipped to do that.

How hard can that be to program? Besides, industry is way ahead of consumer products, and it's already out.

I don't understand how a progressive, worker-friendly state like California would allow a ROBOT to replace a HUMAN. Where are the protests, looting, and cry babies?

Follow the money, look to the top.


Why Donald Trump is inadvertently going to accelerate the rise of robots

....If President Trump really does push companies to base more of their production in the US then those that specialise in robotics and automation will probably be the winners. Companies won’t automatically employ more Americans. They will rethink their strategies and some will inevitably look to automation as a way to avoid the higher costs of employing US workers.

This will accelerate a global trend towards greater automation that is already going on. ...

Yup. You got it!

There is NO global trend to automation and if there is, Who cares?!

Everything is all about Republicans v/s Democrats. Voting for the winning Party. Being on the the winning side.

There. Is. Nothing. Else. To. Discuss.

So might as well move along now. Nothing to see here.

Well atleast I am a machine repairman, I have worked on robotics in manufacturing, and I have to tell you they will still need to be fixed, at least for now anyways. Thank God I only have about 9 years to retire. All I have to say is roll up your sleeves and learn programming, pneumatics and servos, also prepare to get a little dirty it wont hurt you.

I agree. We should all just take care of ourselves and who gives a flying # about anyone else, the world or whatever.

I'm already retired, covered til I die, and don't have anything to worry about. phew.

Ya know that wasn't my point that we should only worry about our selfs, I don't like the idea that these jobs are going away, I have seen too much of it in my time, too many people who spent whole careers doing a job that the tech industry has made obsolete. I once heard a radio show where the dj said let china make the hammers we don't need to make hammers. Well I know there are able bodied hard working people who are just fitted to make them hammers now what are they to do..my point was there is going to be an opportunity to make a living serviceing these machines.

I bet you one of these machines costs as much as 4 or 5 burger flippers' annual salaries, so are they really saving money?
