What is going to happen to our society as AI and robots take most of our jobs?
01/08/2024 // News Editors // Views

If you haven’t lost your job yet, you should be very thankful.  Artificial intelligence and robots are taking more of our jobs with each passing day, and there will be no end to this high tech invasion.  Eventually we could get to a point where AI and robots can do virtually everything far more efficiently and far more inexpensively than humans can.  So what will happen to the vast majority of the human population when their labor is no longer needed?  Will a way be found to quietly deal with “useless eaters” that are considered to be “just taking up space”?  For years we have been warned that AI and robots would revolutionize the workforce, and now that day has officially arrived.

For example, Amazon has been using various types of simple robots to perform certain tasks for years, and now highly sophisticated humanoid robots are being deployed right alongside normal human workers…

Amazon recently began testing a new robot in its warehouse operations — meet Digit, a humanoid bipedal robot with a turquoise torso and smiley eyes.

Designed by Agility Robotics, which Amazon has invested in as part of its Industrial Innovation Fund, Digit is only the latest of a string of warehouse robots the company has introduced over the last several years. However, most of the other warehouse robots have been cart-shaped or robotic arms, not humanoid like Digit.

Digit costs about $10 to $12 an hour to operate right now, based on its price and lifespan, but the company predicts that cost to drop to $2 to $3 an hour plus overhead software costs as production ramps up, Agility Robotics CEO Damion Shelton told Bloomberg.

How are we supposed to compete with that?

No human worker is going to work for “$2 to $3 an hour”.

Plus, robots don’t need breaks, they don’t get sick, they don’t complain and they don’t steal from the company.

So this trend is only going to accelerate during the years ahead.

Even now, there is a McDonald’s restaurant that is almost entirely run by robots

You may be thinking that robots won’t be taking your job any time soon because you have a white collar job that requires a high level of intelligence.

Well, if you are a white collar worker there is a good chance that your current job will one day be made “obsolete” by artificial intelligence.

In fact, Goldman Sachs is projecting that AI could take as many as 300 million full-time jobs during the years ahead, and most of them will be white collar jobs…

As many as 300 million full-time jobs around the world could be automated in some way by the newest wave of artificial intelligence that has spawned platforms like ChatGPT, according to Goldman Sachs economists.

They predicted in a report Sunday that 18% of work globally could be computerized, with the effects felt more deeply in advanced economies than emerging markets.

That’s partly because white-collar workers are seen to be more at risk than manual laborers. Administrative workers and lawyers are expected to be most affected, the economists said, compared to the “little effect” seen on physically demanding or outdoor occupations, such as construction and repair work.

So how are you going to make a living when AI and robots do almost everything better and cheaper than you can?

Vast number of jobs will be lost during the years ahead.
