Meh I am not too concerned by the time they invent a robot that can replace a soldier I'll either be dead or retired at the very worse.

Cool video. I'm an academic so I should be safe longer than most - the paper-writing robots don't make sense yet...

Also, I just noticed your avatar blinks. That's terrifying.

I've been posting articles on Crunchyroll about how China was automating factories for nearly a year now.

This is just the latest in a long series, and it's not even close to being the most complete automation to date. The next step will be moving those factories closer to the point-of-sale, aka the USA and EU. Automated factories have the same labor costs regardless of location, leaving transportation costs as the next target for reduction.

Like he said, horses did not get new jobs, they were replaced. We are starting to replace the human mind, not the tools human minds use. Not everyone can outperform bots, that's naive. Those magical new jobs you think will appear will also be competing with AI. People have to compete with with technology, and technology is evolving a lot faster than human biology can manage to keep up with. You can ship as many people to college as you want, most of them will still remain unemployable.

Maybe, maybe not. You can not tell me, with 100% certainty what will end up in the future. I can tell you it will be impossible for a robot to replace me in Geology for over 500 (possibly never) years at the current growth of technology. A robot will never be able to write a fiction book until we create an artificial brain. Can you tell me, what jobs there will be 500 years from now? If you can... Well shit, teach me senpai.

Worst case scenario humans die in the masses. Its fine. We overpopulated.

Best case scenario... Humans get their jobs and earth gets a population of 20,000,000,000. Hopefully we find a new planet soon.

Lmao. Yeah it's a well presented video. I think the blinking is cool.



I'm safe for good while too--fortunately. The rate technology advances is an exponential curve, often people seem to mistake it as linear. The economy isn't safe though.

Awesome video, I enjoyed watching it. It is amazing to see advancements in science and robotics. Scary for the future job market. Corporations are always looking for cheaper and more effective ways to move forward.

good luck with such dreams..

also some in like china education or learning few things might become too expensive or hard to learn (special people/needs) I guess..

Is it a dream if it has already occurred before?

Who knows...

Hah, yeah. That's the reality we live in.

I went and looked up some links from journals I've read, so might as well share them here too.

And what no one seems to notice... Who will maintain the robots? It will create jobs in that field as well.

Also, not all jobs can be replaced by robots. Some can only be done by humans. No matter how smart robots can get... They can never have... say creativity that the humans possess. This will simply shift jobs around.

That has got to be the most terrifying piece I have ever seen.

We are at the dawn of full automation. Just like at the dawn of computers it takes awhile for things to get rolling.

The Dark Alma and Judar concepts are interesting. Overall a story like this should just be a forewarning of the technological cusp we are currently at. If you manipulate a market to "help" people by enforcing payment laws, companies may try to resource robotics to make more profit. Eventually people will understand it is time for a new profession and that it's time to pursue a goal orientated around the world around them. Unfortunately this includes educating yourself and some just can't do it (not speaking about either of the two).

I don't know if people understand that humans are progressing at an extremely high rate (not all of us lol). We tend to sell ourselves short. What is the goal of a robot/AI? We can't explain consciousness, no computer or AI can explain it either. By the time we come to an amount of intelligence that can explain it I imagine we will have people smart enough to understand if AI would/can destroy the human race and we would be smart enough to prevent it. Personally I believe if we can create consciousness, I don't understand why humans and AI would intend to destroy each other. We are currently still evolving and in a thousand years we won't be using the same amount of resources we are now lol. The universe is full of enough energy for all of us, I think. Before I could see an AI take over I could see a Ghost in The Shell scenario or something involving a mix of robotics and people. Maybe AI would destroy us just to recreate us as perfect genetic beings with incredible brain output. I don't know but I can't see the benefit "robots" would have in destroying things that aren't robots.

oh yeah.. the consept of the future being destroy 9/10 of the human kind to leave the rest "chosen" people 1/10 left alone with robots to help them (also you don't need that many to know how robots work or scripting etc, but atleast some)

Or we go up, up, up space creating another work force out there that can help for food and working places (still quite costly and such + amount of time 100's of years? atleast it could work out.. but for only some)
