This video presents a sobering view of the near future where robots are doing the work that humans do today. Think back to the days when horses were a large part of the world’s labor force, with the advent of the automobile horses through no fault of their own were replaced by autos.
All one has to do to validate the progress of robots is think of the tens of thousands of miles that driverless cars have driven up and down the California coast.
For those of you who believe that better technology makes more and better jobs for humans, think again, that wasn’t the outcome for horses and it will not be true for us humans.
The reality is we have a very large social engineering opportunity to figure out, what will people do when robots are doing 60% of the jobs at work?
