Foreign Policy Magazine Far more people will find their jobs changed rather than lost because of automation

Great article about how things could go right. And
Getting this wrong could deepen society’s divisions and exacerbate inequality, political polarization, instability, and even global insecurity. It will also negatively impact millions of workers — profoundly and personally. This is especially true for workers at the lower end of the income spectrum, from the 18-year-old American cashier trying to earn a living in her first paying job to the 35-year-old Bangladeshi garment worker striving for a better life for her three children.

In short, I think people will have two main occupations if AI and robotics ever reaches some sort of "replace the humans" level of efficiency. Those are:

1) Decision Making.

2) Quality Control.
Those are two really good points I hadn't though of. They tie in to the main overall concept that robots are good at going, but they don't know where to go in the first place. Similarly, with quality control, they might be effective at making "good" products, but they don't know what "good" is.

Read some Kurzweil. Those two "main occupations" you conceptualize has come and gone and you don't even see it. All that remains is to combine us and I'm not certain about that. Let me explain it like this: Have you ever seen the classic film of the ages titled, "The Princess Bride?" There is a scene where one if climbing a cliff, and, upon looking down, noticed that a giant has begun the climb as well, in chase? Then, every time the man being chased looks back again, he notices that the giant has closed the distance in half?" Well, he is upon us. I just don't know the extent he is inside us yet. Just today I watched a man walk down the street totally absorbed in a little computer he held in his hand. Or, did I see a little computer move down the street transported by the man it controls? (Disclaimer. Glad I kept this Web TV so that I can type messages on this tv screen.)
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.

From NPR: What Happens When A.I. Takes The Wheel?
This is a pretty good article, not just about AI, but electric vehicles & transportation in a more generalized sense.

AI can do a lot like take peoples fast food orders but there are things where AI cannot take over.

No, Robots Cannot Replace Us

As usual, I agree with most of the article, but not everything.

Like the complete & total lack of attention that Mises pays to the whole motherfuckinghumanexterminationcamppart :twisted:

ETA: Robot - This is a good overall article on the problem. :mrgreen:

From ABC (Australia): Made in China 2025: Xi Jinping's plan to turn China into the AI world leader
Eleven trillion renminbi: it's a number that's hard to comprehend.
Key points:

China wants to be world leader in AI by 2030
It's a key part of Beijing's plan to refashion its image as a cheap goods manufacturer
Experts warn against deploying AI in warfare too quickly

In Australian dollars that's about $2.41 trillion — far bigger than Australia's entire economy — and it's the target China has set for the value of its artificial intelligence and AI-related industries by 2030.

China is said to have accounted for more than half of all global AI investment over the last five years and in just the next three years alone Beijing expects a tenfold increase in the size of the industry.
Commie AI. The end is well & truely fucking....nye.

Goddammit. Those ass clowns at Boston Dynamics just can't leave well enough alone, can they? I was still liking my chances against plodding android soldiers, cinderblock throwing mechanical donkeys, even the 40mph robotic cheetahs - at least until they equip them with gun turrets (which you just know Boston Dynamics is itching to do).

But now these yahoos are developing an army of f*cking mechanized killer Jackie Chans. How the hell am I supposed to go toe to toe with a RoboChan? Goddamn Boston Dynamics ...



FYI: note that BD's robotic abominations from hell have long since abandoned the control and power umbilicals they were tethered to just a couple of years ago. These things will be free ranging in just a few more years. My guess is they're already self-aware, pissed off and plotting their enslavement/eradication of their human creators. And don't doubt that Alexa, Siri, Echo Dot and that unassuming Roomba vaccum you have shuffling around the family room aren't already in on the plan.

Such is the hubris of man ...

It is weird to see something getting pretty close to 80's era Terminator performance IRL...

Returning to another video by my favorite YouTube techno-philosopher:


While he doesn't explicitly makes the point as much in this video (though he does in others), I also took away that we're (homo sapiens) the last humans for another reason: there will be no further natural biological evolution of the homo genus. We'll transform ourselves into cyborgs and/or enhance our genetics artificially, upload our minds into machines, or simply be superseded by our technology. Or we'll die along with much of everything else in the 6th mass extinction (or by simply annihilating ourselves anytime after). So yeah, this is probably the end of the line for classical hominids.

Let 'em bring it. I have a plan for those Roombas...

Image

3 out of the 4 cats we have are now over the 14 lb. mark and just itching to get a Roomba ride and drain its batteries while clogging its internals with massive amounts of cat hair. The fourth cat is especially adept at producing the biggest, smelliest, slimiest hairballs ever. Hairballs so disgustingly massive they would stop a Roomba in its tracks. As for the Unholy Trio of Alexa, Siri, and Echo, they have never been allowed to cross my thresholds, and never will be.

These new threats from the traitors at BD though... I wonder how well they'd fare against cats riding Roombas with tripwires circling around their feet? Or a barrage of 12 gauge slugs?
