lol, robots already have a huge number of human jobs.
Factories, for instance... those that haven't gone totally automated, are trying to.
The way I see it is, the more machines we have doing menial tasks, the more we as a species can focus on the more intelligent side of productivity.
Those who simply can't keep up, too bad. Thats evolution of a species for you. Leave the weak behind.
Me, I have no fears, I'm in robotics engineering... so my job is safe. And is only getting more and more in demand as each day goes by.
For example, the RCMP bomb disposers I work on from time to time... I'm actually pretty glad I'm repairing those, rather than hearing about a bomb
technitian getting blown apart on the news. Gives me a sense of pride.
