About: Humans Need Not Apply
okay after inciting a panic in my head what are we going to do grey? WHAT DO WE DO?!
Once a robot or an AI asks the question why, that's when you'll know it probably has sentience.
communism would fix this problem
uhh i'm about to graduate from finance major, handling investment, money and stuff.
This is extremely worrying... what have I been studying for?
Someone is anti human this guy is probably a synth and a robot can’t take my job I’ve never seen a robot clean a toilet or change trash bags
Voting for Andrew Yang fixes this.
The solution is to use the profits from automation to pay for a universal basic income. Andrew Yang is running on this policy.
Why did he have a glue bottle on his desk?!!?
the eventual unemployment problem is going to be worse if we keep jacking minimum wage up to, say, 15 dollars an hour.
I’d prefer dealing with a robot they’re not rude or spiteful.
I think that will be hard to sleep well tonight.
I love how he said self-driving cars "never cause an accident" while the video shows the uh... self-driving car CROSSING THE CENTERLINE
God damn how will we ever work?? Will money even exist?? We wont be able to work to get money....
I mean, I agree with pretty much all your points regardless, but that music in the background? I knew it was one of two options - a really low-effort human composer, or a bot. While bots definitely can replace all ordinary artistic pursuits, I have yet to see evidence that they can truly create something great.
The things that bots can do are what you say - create an abundance for little effort. But just like procedurally generated content, it is hard to create something original
with robotics. I'd imagine once we do that, we'll have true A.I.
Creative pursuits aren't always original, of course. But there's always something in some (but not all) creations that I doubt could be replicated without a human-like brain. Or at least a relatively complex organic brain.
Still, what you say is true. Artists and creators do not make up a significant part of the workforce, and not everyone is a programmer. Machine maintenance can likewise be automated, with only minimal supervision required. We need to be prepared for this, and if we want new jobs to show up, we need to make sure they happen, not just hope that they magically appear.
Either that or we rethink the entire concept of an economy, like that one idealistic future in Star Trek where money just doesn't exist anymore because machines made things so much more easy. (Doubt that would happen, though. We manage to mess up even the simplest things.)
