Black mirror coming in a future near you be aware!
is not bright what will become is darkness.
It be going on for a while people stop caring about each other etc
isn't become more obviously before now.
There is already a shift in employment. Money cash payment is getting less more electronic payments r coming about. I am all for this as a new world is being born and that is great. More time with family more tax for the corporations that pay for the down side of this. More training for the new kids around and more efficacy is born. People have too adjust and work together more as we have and should of been. This will stop greed too a point. I am a taxi driver a veteran as well. Driverless cars and more time with the family..
Welcome to Huxleys Brave New World folks. It's a no brainer, game over for workers when corporations optimize efficiency through outsourcing and total automation of services. Corporations are mandated to maximise profits for their shareholders. Profit before people is simply what corporations do.
The fact this has spread to the culture accelerating adapt or die social darwinist trends like gentrification, selective schools, identity politics (far right, hipsterism, brexit, trumpism,) should surprise no one. It is going to get much worse. This is simply the internal logic of capitalism expressed writ large. And don't kid yourself that market forces or governments will curb the mass unemployment this reality will create. Yes workers are also consumers but in a global market place corporations can easily replace both. You have a choice to make. Either shake up the model, shape up or ship out!
It looks more of sinistic video, made to frighten people by showing darker side of technology, by relating to history. I would've appreciated, if this power of digital media was put to use for betterment of progressive society.
automate food production first, so jobs will not be necessary since it's free foods.
then we can focus on innovation without the stress.
the order should be:
establishments, urban planning like atlantis
There is One who provides without machines or labor. That's the way things started out and that's how they'll resolve themselves. Technology will become obsolete, and good riddance to those who stand for it.
We are already at the edge of processing power because its already shrinking to the atom size architecture. From the past few years intel and amd had stuck on that, the only changes by far is just tweaking around finding better design. Another thing is the lack of reliable power source from phones battery to city generators. If these were to overcome then im afraid jobs will be reduced drastically. Since i came to job as computer automation engineer, the company got 12 people just for software testing purpose. Now its only 3 of us continue to automate the same job when automated testing that i developed done more accurate than human, somewhat make me uncomfortable for taking people's meal. But human do adapt to changes, struggle to survive. As a job is demolished, theres always another job created. Its just more and more skilled and complicated
You think that 50 % of the jobs that will disappear in 2030 are done by 50 % of the active population ? More like 90 % of the workers are in the 50 % jobs that will disappear, the rest being more qualified and creative works. Maybe the 10 % jobs that will disappear in 2020 are done by 40 % of the population.
Thousands of "robots" are paid to confuse everyone by saying Automation/ Immigrants/ Robots/ China/ Whatever/ etc caused the loss of 40 million Primary jobs with thick benefits and comfortable pensions. But where are the 70,000 big manufacturing plants that closed? ..... There are no factories to automate..(Duh!) When Trump puts back those 70K factories, then we will need to import 39,999,999 more workers to fill those Secondary jobs that arise from the 40M big spenders!
With no jobs you will get a majority of people without money, or on wellfare. So the very very few jobs that are left will be the new middleclass. I guess this would result in a revolution, people against the Machines (terminators).
Also, think about it, if you don't have employees, and people in general don't have jobs, then we don't have money, and well, no customers. What's the point in production if you have no customer? People will always have some kind of jobs. Even those who make bronze tools today have their customers. Some people are interested in bronze knives and kitchen utensils. It seems like a lot of people don't know what automatization and AI is capable of, because people are usually afraid of what they don't understand
there will be the wealthy elite class who own the AI and robots, and they will be each others customers buying each others robots and services and power... but the average person will have nothing to spend on products and no work
I have already seen the impacts of AI and technology. I havent stop any banking for last 6 months(just online banking). That means I allowed atleast 1 employee to lose his/her job. In retail I like self check out, it means managers to reduce labour cost and increase automation. 15% of shopping I do it online. I think if you are like me, we are helping few people to be rich(minimzing through auto) and millions people(including mom,dad..) are losing their jobs. From tommorow I will take actions and I have to change my online behaviour. Did i mention, I am losing many friends because I use internet alot? Yes, I cant remember when I had a good time with my best friends. It sad.
Omar you can't hold back progress, the future is coming no matter what... human jobs will start to dry up.
if you ran a store that had humans working there, your prices would have to be much higher to pay them all...
but the store down the street is all automatic, self service and the prices are far cheaper...
you can just decide to stick with the old system
Look we will all learn to adapt. We always do. The Industrial Revolution for instance may have made jobs obselete but people moved on and learned to adapt as the years went by. It may take some adjusting but we will get there.
Of course you can replace porn stars - animation. Prostitutes, no. Most men want warm, human flesh, but most women won't do that for a living. That's why millions are kidnapped and forced into it. Labor shortages. Plus, many are murdered, so attrition is high.
No jobs for people no economy who's gonna buy there products if people don't have money whats the point having robots or automated system taking over people jobs if people don't work. Ain't that how economy's work people buy stuff. End of the day machines aren't gonna buy the products from there employers.
The rise of Artificial Intelligence, which is poisoning the job market, is based on the largest, scariest knowledge theft of the modern era.
We need to prepare an antidote.
Let's work for a fairer Artificial Intelligence https://lnkd.in/g2sQATV
Good video, but the one-off at the beginning about each jump in technology making humans' lives easier is incorrect. The opposite is true. Hunter-gatherers worked about 17 hours a week. Each major jump in technology makes us work that much longer. With cell-phones, if you want a big-time job prepare to have to work 24/7.
Let them have all the jobs, let technology replace the human work force and take away the people who try to make money by others suffering and BAM suddenly we can ALL live in a world where everything is free for everyone alive and we will still have access to same things as today + more. idk why everyone is so scared of NOT being forced to work for some asshole just to be able to survive.
Jeremiah Peterson yeah, hopefully enough people will loose their patience with this shitty system we live in.
Otherwise im pretty sure that these bankers/elites in charge will be taken down by AI, because i believe the only people who need to fear AI turning on them are the people who make money by harming others.
Jeremiah Peterson yes i know how the world works right now, my comment was what i personally think people should work for.
Which also be easy as fuck to accomplish if people for example realized that 100.000 argy organized people cannot be ruled by 1 person. But if everyone keeps accepting and living in this shit and only once in a while make a personal complaint, the world wont get anywhere
Frodo Falk, because many people benefit from the current predatory system. The confederacy didn't want to give up its slaves. They even dehumanized black people in an effort to convince people their system was just. We see the same thing happening in today's Capitalist system. People make justifications by calling people lazy and deadbeats. The reality is that today's Capitalist system is not much different than the one we saw in the confederacy.
After reading thru most of the comments, not a single one of you mentioned the fact that automated equipment breaks down constantly, and requires an entire workforce to maintain and repair all of those robots you are all so afraid of..i work in the semiconductor industry repairing just one single tool set (along with 11 others just in my dept). I am paid extremely well, and i work full time. THIS is what the author is talking about when he says "to adapt"....my worry is the fact that Americans in general care more about watching sports or the cardashians than educating themselves in the sciences and technologies that are REQUIRED to do this type of work...better stop being stupid, people. your livelihood may depend on it..
Ghana Mafia, why sabotage something good. Why do people feel like we need to live in a predatory extortion base system called capitalism? We can break free of that and move towards a science society that uses people to create new ideas and invent new things. Robots can do the hard work, us humans can learn and create. We can spend more time with our families. Do what we want with our lives. Why do people want to stay in a system that benefits a minority at the expense of the majority? I am tired of the Capitalist system, it is outdated. Look to the future and let go of the slave economy.
No..lol....we just have to sabotage the machines....if a machine is brought to your job and you feel like it's competing with your job security, just put some water or cooking oil in one of the compartment inside the machine.....it's very simple to do.....Find a way to sabotage that machine without leaving a trace...you either sabotage it's job or it will sabotage yours....YOU CHOOSE.
david klebs, there are not enough jobs for everyone, and companies work on a greed base system. We will need a Socialist system to make sure the future is stable. Capitalism is coming to an end as it is a system of the past.
Not all mechanical systems will have full autonomy. A burger flipping robot will just be a machine built for flipping burgers. It would make no sense for it to have self awareness or a broad scope of intelligence.
I don't think technology will cause unemployment at all. Only the skills required for jobs are changing.
Some may refuse to use self checkout in supermarkets because they think cashiers will lose their jobs. Assuming the supermarket has only 1 manual checkout lanes with 1 cashier. By replacing the manual checkout counter to few self checkout counters, and ask the cashier to become the customer service specialist, the checkout process will be more efficient. No job will be lost in this case.
Some may think professional like accountant, actuary, etc will lose their jobs as the technology will replaced them. If you are working in the financial industry, you are required to do lots of programming, especially when you are in the junior position. You will never doing millions of calculation by hand. New technology will only improve their efficiency.
Will government gain less due to less payroll income? I don't think it is caused by improved technology and it will not cause government problem. On the other hand, tax regimes, laws and regulations should change according as well. So no one should be suffer financial difficulty by changing tax regimes. More strict laws to set, for example, hackers should be consider as terrorists.
khjyuen0606 I agree with you. I believe technology creates more jobs. Take the example of car mechanics. When there were no cars there were no mechanics. With technology improving.. Companies started developing car parts and employee engineers.
The guy whose job it is to put gas caps on cars on the assembly line can be retrained to operate the robot. lets not forget the hundreds of people it will take to design, build, market, transport, install, train and repair that robot.
Lets not forget the additional wages of all those people
In addition to that, The company can produce them cheaper bringing down the cost so they can sell more and hire more people.
That doesn't make any sense. There will be LESS reason for immigration when 47% (and higher) of the workforce is automated.
Migrant workers will be pushed out of the jobs they do today when their jobs are automated.
lol it's amazing to me that there are people still looking at old manufacturing jobs....lmao how antiquated could you be. Those jobs are going to be obsolete sooner than everyone thinks, it's interesting how the video was talking about developing new skills for jobs. It's called evolution of technology and civilization, but people even after 100 years still can't get their dumb mind out their old narrative of work. But it's okay the future will catch up with them soon enough.
I'm a drafter. I trained in 2D drafting and a little bit of 3D modeling. But BIM, at some point will take a lot of jobs away for drafters. It just makes it a lot easier for engineers to get the design work done without giving it to someone else. I'm not too happy about this seeing that I started my pro drafting career 1.5 years ago. An engineering degree really isn't to my liking. Hopefully in the near future I can get a architectural degree and not have to worry so much about my present career path being taken away from me.
This is the Marxist idea, that technology will be so advanced that everyone will be in leisure. Even today at some companies there are more corporate people than there are actual workers. With technology putting people out of work there is a risk of depopulation, there will no longer be a need for lower class citizens. This is what happened in Soviet Union people were starved because there was no need for them.
that reminds me of one of my jobs, 4 actual workers, and then 8 corporate workers. Ridiculous that 4 people run the entire operation and the rest just handle customers or future earnings projections and accounting.
Seriously? You guys don't see where the new job creations will come from? Just like how it was millennials ago. There will be A LOT of jobs creation from people maintaining these robots! Then the people just go to a different machine to get paid, which is controlled by the robots. How did you think the pyramid was built!???? Exactly the same model, slaves!
So right now, there are a lot of people, and not a lot of robots..... people rule.
Then, there will be fewer people and more robots..... people still kind of rule (rich people).... that's the point of the video
THEN, there will be fewer robots..... and more people...... robots rule..... it's actually good for the planet actually.
Humans are like locusts. They consume everything! Go bots! :)
.... and then what? lol
keep going with your thoughts. Think it through, you're on the right path. What's going to happen to the unemployed people?
Eventually, if done corrrectly, you will end up with EXACTLY what I was saying. So, might want to read what I'd written again..... slowly.
(BTW, have some humor in your life. There was some tongue in cheek in what I was saying. Don't get bent out of shape.)
You are so brainwashed with your own stupidity. The point of these robots is to replace the EMPLOYEE! As bad as that sounds, it happens to be true. One of the biggest expenses for corporations, along with small businesses, are their OWN EMPLOYEES! If they can figure out how they an eliminate the huge expense of employing people (one of the partial solutions is to ship jobs to china for cheap labor), they're gonna make a FORTUNE OUT OF IT! Soon, unemployment will be sky high! Although there might be new job creations, like maintaining the robots, coding, etc., the number of lost jobs will OUTWEIGH the ones being created.
I am not worried about robots replacing human labor, what I am worried about is how humans deal with this change. Ownership and wealth is different from productivity and resources. High productivity lead by robots will allow humans to have a higher standard of living. People from less developed countries could have a quantum leap in living standard. Now, the important part is how the government and private industry could work together to guide the public through this transition from a labor intensive society to a post labor society. Once people no longer need to work 40 hours a week, what should they do with all the free time. As a result, what types of industries would grow to fulfil the extra leisure time.
Great video both visually and good information. Straight to the point and no sugar-coating or BS to help people "remain calm". Job reports are bogus, weekly average earnings keep going down, and as many millennials live with their parents since the 1960's. Nothing is safe anymore not even accounting. Thanks baby boomers. On a more positive side, thanks for taking the time to read this (if you did).
Hover, Communism is when the workers own the means of production. Has nothing to do with whether something is a service or not.
And not everything in the future can be a service.
There will still be a need for products and goods, as well as services.
Can you think of how any of us will save for retirement when we have to constantly stop our lives shell out 20 grand to learn new skills because our old skills were made obsolete. The future of work is going to be horrible.
This video assumes most people will be able to struggle and not get "left behind." The reality is that vast numbers of people are and will be "left behind," so society is going to have to deal with that. This new automation doesn't create anywhere near as many jobs as it takes over. Is it the growing welfare state that has put the US $20 trillion in debt?
Yeah I think machines are supposed to be made for work with human not for complete replacement (like pilots still have their jobs while computer is doing the routine job). Or we're gonna face lots of problems, cause if machines start replace people for providing goods, people will start saving their money and start spend less money on things they don't need to survive. So idk if we're ready for that. I mean let's say you can find another job right, and most of the jobs will be connected to computers and programming, but what if there are people who are not interested in making money, but have a genuine interest in their profession (like doctors or pilots) what if career is more important for them.
All of you talking about how this will make poor people poorer... Have you ever thought that the economy will also change in reflection of this? Stop being so fearful of change, get ready to adapt. All the people I read here that are complaining are just scared of not being good enough.
There will always be shortsighted dummies around, that's just the way it is. Industrialist morons who are too stubborn to realize all the benefits of automated hard labor. They rather put poor people there so that they can have their backs broken at the age of 30 and die at 50. Utter morons. The economy will absolutely change from this. People can still become Doctors, therapists and what not. Computers by todays means will never outperform a human being, a computer is purely logical, a human is so much more which means that you still need people to take decisions. While you might not need doctors to perform surgery or analyze a patient, you still need them for other things. A utopia also requires everyone to want everything well for everyone else, and that is very far from what the world looks like, nor will be able to form for a long time, that would require you to disassemble all the current political systems, capitalism and so on, that's not gonna happen.The more work that is being over taken by robotics, the less people have to work in general. This will neither be centralized like many seem to piss their pants about, anyone with enough brain capacity will be able to produce software and hardware architectures needed for this, it should in theory also make the general population smarter which apparently is very much needed. There will also be poor people in this either way, but the difference is that the rich will not be low IQ unskilled people like many are today. The smarter you are, the higher you will rise, and that would give the dummies a chance to start using their brains more. Now, developing computers and such requires a lot more than just knowledge, it also requires a lot of intelligence (which doesn't always go hand in hand), and intelligence is a lot harder to learn, so they wont stand equal to the ones who are naturally more intelligent. Today more knowledge and intelligence does not mean more money at all, that part is more about greed than anything. It's not difficult to find a way to make huge sums of money, but a lot of people have higher moral standards than what that requires, and the ones who don't are mostly the elites. Think about this for a second, this example is taken from something I thought of a lot lately. A network technician for example doesn't need 5% of the knowledge of a low level software engineer, and yet in many cases the network technician makes a lot more money. People are getting terribly ripped off, and they don't have a single clue about it.
go study at codecademy, alison, lynda, cybrary, pluralsight etc... even youtube. you can also attach your online certs to you linkedin account and attach your projects to your account as well. also, find accredited community colleges that offer online pay as you go options for their certs/diplomas/degrees.
That's fine, but you realize for that "scholarly source", you are going to pay one hell of a hefty premium. Average colleges are at least 30k tuition, many reputable and better programs cost a couple hundred to a couple thousand for the entire experience (bootcamps, self teaching through online courses).
In the majority of cases the alternative has actually been MUCH more effective at preparing people vocationally. The advantage of the college degree is that it buys you more credibility with employers, but this is for the most artificial of reasons. Having a prestigious degree DOES NOT equal capability , a degree is just an easy marker to gauge on for an employer, not a reliable one.
I personally would rather pay for the cheaper alternative that teaches me all the foundations to develop a practical skill so I can create my own credability. Colleges also have a tendency of making you learn how to do stuff with really outdated tools....
Dude, you're being overly dramatic with no need to be. You have the internet which is amazing information and you don't need a university degree to learn things. You can do so many free courses, you can read stuff. You don't have to have information spoon fed. That's the problem, people think you only learn in school and disregard the fact that learning is a synonym for life. If you're willing to always grow and learn then you'll soon see that all of your rant is just that... A rant.
Learning how to learn fast and adapt yourself to getting as much out of your current job is key. I work in technology and I came in with the understanding that my job will probably not survive the decade and I'll probably need to learn the role that is up and coming.
Technology is too volatile and changig at too fast of a pace for you to be able to predict a job where you can't be replaced in 100 years... I don't think, from now on, there will be a irreplaceable job that stays irreplaceable for that long...
