automation will make America a producing giant again. china and other countries beats us because we dont have a big enough workforce to compete. but with robotics and automation becoming cheaper it means we can all get in on being industrial producers of food goods and so on. this is a good thing..
3:00 they may be able to understand language, recognize faces, and compose music, but they don't understand what it means. To a machine a language is just words that don't convey a meaning, faces are gust images that don't do anything, and music is just sound.
How about questioning Income Tax? I think that we need Government for all kinds of services. Why are we penalizing those who wish to work with an income tax?
There are many ways to pay for Government other than taxing people who work. We can tax wealth. Consumption. RE holdings. Inheriting tax. Pollution tax. User tax. Etc, etc.
Don't be too worried, all these robots can break down or not notice changes to say how dark the toast comes out of the toaster...lol what a joke. I'll believe it when I see it. Will some jobs hit the road - yep - but I have worked with totally automated systems and know how much this stuff breaks and/or has errors and guess who has to fix the errors or replace the parts - humans! I for one would never get on a jet plane that is totally automated.
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!
robot maintenance can be automated by building maintenance robots to service the rest...
new robot design is done by artificial intelligence... not humans
no human is needed at any point... they can never compete with the machine
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.
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.
