If we dont ban robotics with google buying up all these companies and what ford is getting into, 50% of all people in the WORLD, let alone north america will loss their job to a robot.

Their prediction is to have floor models 2 years from now starting at 22,000$,............. THEY WILL SAVE MONEY FIRING YOU FOR ONE OF THESE ROBOTS

if we dont start a partition and pass bills not alowing robots to take our place on earth you can say bye bye in the next 10.


anyways i'm going to make a more educated thread one day but i just got really pissed off thinking about it and how no one is talking about it so i decided to get you guys thinking while i have a busy day....

i know noting will come of this since most of you dont have jobs anyways, for those that care, i dont think we can even win this battle, scary future indeed

Robotics is not what will kill your jobs; it's the current system. Automating the workforce is a no-brainer and would be a complete boon to society if it weren't for the sole benefit of capitalism.

An ideal society would be an autonomous one in which people could pursue their passions without regard for basic necessities. We can't get there as long as we still need people doing menial tasks and having to work full time just to stay a. of the debts.

I'm 100% for advancements in robotics. We just need our society to evolve alongside our tech and science.

Maybe you can start by fixing this one -- there is no text in your "EX" box, and the link doesn't work. If you're not linking to a news article posted to an alternative news site, this is the wrong forum to be posting in.

The masses had this same uneducated fear in the 1700's when the looms came in and 1800's when the Industrial revolution fully kicked in.

And Humans adapted. They found knews ares and new things to expand into.

You probably shouldn't be so scared of technology. You do realize that if these companies replaced all these people with robotics, no one would have any money to buy their products. They'd either be forced to reduce prices drastically or just go out of business. Your scenario would be just as devastating to the employers as it would be to the consumers.

I don't think of it as bringing such an ideal society as cuervo.

I mean, how many people out there do you know who are talented and passionate?

LOL.

There's just not many ppl out there who could stay sane without a pre-figured remedial task to work on all day.

I listened to NPR, and they were saying the same, and asked this lady what she would do with all the excess time to follow her joys...

She basically said she would garden, and try to flip real estate LOL! No way that lady had the monies to be flipping real-estate.

Pressures will be introduced to wipe out the least desireables in direct proportion to the benefits high-tech brings the species.

Oh wait, those pressures are already being introduced, and the dimwits don't even realize it.

Score ?!

OP could change "loss" to "lose" and that wouldn't hurt anything either.

Loss? Come on now.....LOSE. That right there is an example of why. The education system is letting people out of school that cannot even spell.
I hate to be "that guy", but it is really hard to take this thread seriously with such an error not only in the title, but through the whole thing.

Having worked at Ford in the body shop where all the robotics were, I can tell you that you can't run a fully automated assembly line without someone to feed the machines and keep an eye on them. Just because its a machine does not mean it never makes any mistakes. I remember standing there with the bigwigs at Ford and them saying it wasn't possible that the machine had dragged a body side across the stands and tore up said body side.And I simply told them,then believe whatever you want,but thats exactly what it did.

YES!

let the robots do mining, pick the crops, make everything, etc. why not?... because the rich would be mad that all the fun things/places would have to be shared?

Why should the govt create needless busy work jobs just so a broken corrupt system can continue to enslave BILLIONS for the benefit of a few thousand?

Who didn't dream about living like the Jetson's?

Instead of 5 people working 5 days a week, have each person work one day a week.

we could all have Wave Runners, ATV's, go skydiving, skiing, etc..

crime would become non-existent pretty quickly if everyone had adequate food/shelter and the freedom ($$$) to indulge in their creativity.

Currently there are 1.6 billion jobs for 3 billion working aged people that are not otherwise disabled enough to be unable to work worldwide. So it is already almost a 2 to 1 ratio before further more sophisticated automation.

I am losing my job this year. But not to a robot. The company I work for decided that they could make even more of a profit by moving operations to Mexico.

My suggestion: learn how to fix and operate robots.

If they installed a robot next to me on an assembly line -- I'd be learning as much as I can about it and how to keep it running. Robots are only valuable if they are in working order.

A good question to ask yourself...

If I died tomorrow, would anyone actually miss my skills.

I welcome it personally. Robots doing work, you pursuing whatever it is you want to pursue. I'm fine with it.

Thats all great but what do you do about the money? establish a credit of some sort? I don't think anyone on ats believes the world currencies are going to remain as we know them, let alone sustain the standard work week as automation takes over. I'm watching congress talk about the long term unemployed right now and unemployment benefits, social benefits ect. Seems to me they should be discussing... how do we maintain the population who will soon literally not have to work as they have in the past.
