    If you have negative feelings towards the future then read this. The human species is not just brains and bodies. We have emotions, personalities, connections with other humans. True, automation will most likely take the majority if not all jobs in the future, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. A reduced cost of labor means a reduced cost of living. Jobs will no longer be a necessity in life. We will no longer need to work to pay for food. In a utopian future we won't need jobs, money, or anything of the sort. We will be able to pursue true happiness. A father won't be forced to sacrifice time with his family in order to feed them. A single mother will not have to balance sustaining her children and raising them. There will be no more need. First world countries will be able to divert their attention on helping other countries catch up. If we come together as a species and push this automation toward the right direction we can create our paradise. Where we don't need to concern ourselves with concrete things but rather focus on what we have never truly mastered. The intangible. It all depends on us as a species. It's not even about changing laws but about changing hearts. Even corporations have humans behind them. They have desires, hopes, emotions, humanity. If we can help them realize that by sharing they can make a world where we will never need to worry about losing our belongings. It is a turning point in humanity and we have to try to take the right path.

    There are valid arguments, but the change will be much slower than Grey is expecting. I can't imagine how one would replace low skill workers such as construction workers, machine operators, barbers, shop assistants or even assembly line workers. Even in 2020 it is quite often cheaper to hire more people to do simple tasks instead of buying automated equipment (even where workforce is really expensive [for example Nordic Countries]). If the initial investment cost is high and the amount of work is uncertain, the investment is not worth it. Automation is likely to cause major change in transportation before anywhere else, but I don't see that coming in the next 10 years. Autonomous vehicles are as strong as their weakest link, and even one place where it's unable to navigate is a critical and quite literal roadblock. I think that transportation on rail will be automated first, since you don't have to care about the environment that much. You can put as many sensors on the equipment as you like, you can control everything, and you can automate the whole system at once (say metro or light rail system). But in many places that has proven too difficult. Next would be long haul trucking on highways, but that wont happen before autonomous vehicles are reliable enough, that the 'driver' is not in charge of the vehicle's actions or accidents. I can't see that coming before 2035. I mean, if an autonomous vehicle crashes, who is in charge and what is being done to avoid such accidents in the future. And how are you supposed to trust your autonomous car, when it can't even turn the headlights on when it's dark. Yes, you can build automated warehouses, but you can't pick a box or any other object from a pallet without human. The investment and maintenance cost's are huge, and the warehouse isn't flexible. Not to talk about the threat of cyber attack or loss of power etc. Anything with a GPS can be blocked with cheap devices. Data streams can be interrupted quite easily, and yet devices using this technology must be reliable and fail safe. How is a robot to fill shelves on a grocery store? Or cut your hair? Or pick coffee beans or strawberries? Maintain roads or facilities? Build anything? Do teaching (we know how online school is for kids)? It's really hard to imagine a robot revolution, when I see people doing simple jobs (production line assembly/feeding machines/flipping or inserting parts) that I thought were automated a long time ago, because it's cheaper to pay people 20€/hour and spend another 10€/h for insurances, equipment etc. than building a machine to do the job (or general purpose machines to do the job).

    This came up as a recommendation from six years ago. The only critique I can make is it might have touched on terminology, i.e. expert systems (all the info coded one line at a time vs. heuristic (as in self-learning) AI. The development of Wall Street heuristic systems is frightening. Black box heuristic AI is a questionable patented system where you create a virtual environment, set loose many versions and evolve them (as in delete less competitive code based on based on achieving the specified results), then rinse and repeat with more iterations based on mutating the code of the most successful programs from the previous generation. It has been extremely successful in financial markets. The only problem is humans no longer understand the code, and there is no hardwired "three laws of robotics". DARPA - the defense department futuristic development division that gave us the Internet - in the last couple of years has been quietly developing a program to query AI why is did something. Think about it...

      @Patrick McCoy Of course that wasn't my personal opinion about humanity as a whole, but rather a bleak view of how divided to the rich and the poor will it be. Currently 1% of people own 44% of all the money, and this isn't likely to go down. It's the middle class that is shrinking now, most of the having less wealth, and a few having it better (those who are already on their way to being really rich). And When you are in a select wealthy few you cannot even comprehend the context of daily struggle of survival. This is not merely opinion, but an observed fact that empathy goes down when your wealth goes up.

      So, you mean that because you like the "genuine" stuff it will prevail. Oh, it will prevail, just as post-automation horses will. Or pretty much anything that is hand-made anymore. The very existence of k-pop, japanese idols, a shit ton of mediocre light novels shows how "genuineness" isn't a factor for nearly as many people. If the fake stuff will satisfy their need for entertainment for a fraction of cost of genuine stuff, it will be made, and the genuine stuff will so expensive that it can only be afforded by the wealthier people.

    2040: all human work force has been removed. People only invest the money to get on machines that can bring more money. Universal income has become real but the good part is only machines pay taxes. Humans receive a basic income and spend with wherever they want.

      @Marcos Fabrício Abreu When you are a billionaire, you don't care if a chair costs 5k or 10k or 100k, you can afford what you want, you don't need to compromise. The reality of getting best "bang for the buck" only applies to those with less infinite wealth, like you and me. By the way, during this time, I googled for the most expensive chair. It is "The Dragon's chair" at $27.8 million. Second is Pininfarina’s Aresline Xten, $1.5 million. As you can see, there is market for even ridiculously priced chairs.

      @Marcos Fabrício Abreu As of now, 1% of people already own 44% of the money. What will the situation be in 50 years? That 1% probably holds even more. There will come a point where the 1% already own 99% of the money, and the remaining people have no money to speak of to consume. People will be even more divided to the rich minority and poor majority, and there is more money to be made to serve the rich instead of the poor. So, why make 1000 chairs for 100 each when you can make 10 chairs for 10.000? A chair that pricey is probably mostly because of branding, so the profit per chair is probably huge compared to the 100 chair.

      Lets say i sell chairs, 100 each I sold 1 thousand chairs this month On my projections the machine and cost of the product to be paid off is lets say 15 years, so i put money on the machine and sell it to pay the machine costs and get my money from the product. I spend 50 to make a chair We pay lets say 40% of tax on my profit, So i lost 40000 on taxes, next month i need to end up selling 2 thousand chairs, i got to pay 80000 on taxes but i maid 10000 of profit on the chairs from First time, now i did 20000, in the other hand my competitor sold less chairs because either he has worse chairs or higher prices, in the end u need to sell more and more each month we get money from removing from others, the new money will come from other activities like profit from other machines and money made by art, games or food all.

      @Zack Georgly You're just flat-out wrong. Sorry. I encourage you to have a look at practically every technology in existence, how available necessities are for everyone, and how many jobs each technology has made available compared to those it replaced. Your claim is not based in evidence or logic at all. As for intelligence, there are a great many jobs that are fit for lower-intelligence workers, and everyone who considers themselves as not very smart are generally perfectly capable of performing well in the same jobs as everyone else. Those who are *actually incapable* of doing most jobs are diagnosed as *handicapped,* or, in other words, *having most of what they need to live handed to them.* Yes, resources are more available to everyone as technology develops.

      @DGamer135 Yes, the very point of technology IS to make jobs less necessary, because paying for jobs costs money to someone. There are many problems with your equation. First, bots are cheaper than even a minimum wage worker. Bots will work 24/7/365, with no off days (or at least planned ones) while simultaneously being many times more effective and better than humans. Second, most definitely, everyone will NOT have more opportunity, but less. The situation RIGHT NOW is that those of us who are even a slightly less than average intelligence, have difficulties to find a job fit for their mental capabilities. This will only get worse in 50 years when AI gets more smarter all the time, while the average human IQ will not rise at all. Third, "the better technology gets, the more resources are free for everyone" is just downright false. Resources aren't free, and much less "for everyone". Automation has been on the rise for decades, and the wealth gap has only gotten wider. World's richest 1 percent, owns 44 percent of the world's wealth, and there is no indication that this would change in the foreseeable future.

      @Zack Georgly The claim that humans will lose jobs because of technology and that being a bad thing is nonsensical. The very point of technology is to make jobs less necessary. If common jobs today are no longer available in 50 years due to technology, the demand will shift to more appropriate jobs. Everyone will have equal if not more opportunity to work in an area with a high demand. That's already happened with computers. My dad went from a student with computers that barely did anything to an engineer that uses advanced computer modeling to create medical equipment. If there are no more jobs that people would hire minimum wage workers for in 50 years, those people will instead have educations provided to them and not ever need a low skill job. The better technology gets, the more resources are free for everyone. With no low skill jobs available, every low skill worker will not need one.

    Since I'm older I'd like to have my own Bot. If it needs it, it can have its own computer. It could fix my car, build a storage shed, design a modest home and then build it. Problems may arise when I can't afford materials. I will then ask it to take money from people like Elon Musk and give it to me for the materials. LOL

    Especially considering half the crap I fix was put in by someone who didn't know what they were doing. So I have to figure out what some guy in the 70s was thinking and have to find out how to remove that and reconstruct it in as much of a stable position as possible. Its one thing for a house to be built from the ground up, its another to fix something already hand made. How would a robot know when to stop ripping out the plaster? How would a robot know that a board its ripping out is going to send the upper levels of a house upon itself? How does it know to stop painting because of the changing light in a room? Decades away. Or at least far enough away that humanity will probably rip itself apart again before I have to deal with it.

    Automation is going to bring a change to economics. Not many jobs means not many people will get paid and less money kills the economy. I think it's the change we need but also a change with great risks. It's going to come and we need to be together or we will fail.

    Had repair been factored into the operational cost of robots? Given that corporations seem driven by the bottom line at the expense of effective modular design, how can robots be inexpensive when every critical function will no doubt be found on one circuit board costing as much as the robot itself to replace? Or perhaps they'll take the Apple or Samsung route and mark critical parts as proprietary. How can repair shops fix something when this or that manufacturer refuses to sell them that part due to contractual obligation?

    I am learning IT, but ofcorse this is just my opinion: We are not horses. We have the ultimate capability to flexible learning new tasks. A horse dose phisical jobs but can not learn the moves neccessary to coal mining. The biggest problem is when someone is lazy to learn, they should be concerned. Even if the very overrated AI ever will be better at learning, we will give it the tasks. In deeplearning the biggest human task is to create data that the machine will understand. We need people who can do the task to know what should we teach to the machine. There are machines that can just figure it out but its much slover and can take years to them. If there will not be enouph jobs for us we invent new jobs. Ofcorse the unemployed rate is a big problem but it can be solved. I think the best solution is to teach people to become selfteachers. I literelly learn a new skill every month next to university and work. If I loosed my job I had a bunch of oportunities for a totally different one. I loughed at the end of the video, when you mentioned chess. Do you now since when we thought it could be automated? It was between the first tasks to have an AI concept. I think in the end when all jobs will be done by machines we will be all philosofers. All our task will be to think about the most abstract matters based on the data provided by the machines. Can you imagine that amount of free time? We always will be able to create art that a machine could not, since we can give it meaning that even we barely understand. Maybe the machine can write songs, but it will not be able to explane a deep abstract meaning behind it.

      You are not understanding what is going on here. The people do not have control over the means of production. There are two different classes of humanity. The capitalists and the workers. The capitalists decide what is to be done with the means of production and the workers have to give more to capitalists than they receive to survive. If the capitalists had to kill 99% of all humans to keep power they would do that. If the people directly controlled the means of production wages, prices, what is to be produced would be decided by the people and things would be better. But people believe that capitalists deserve to have hundreds of buildings the capitalists have never been in. The idea of property as it is in a capitalist society is incoherent. The people of each country own the means of production.

    There is an unnamed little road in Zimbabwe that cuts through the Charara Safari Park to Makuti. The day someone tells me electric driveless car can _totally_ replace humans, I want them to get into their little grey box and head down that road. If they survive the 100m cliffs, stubborn elephants, blind turns, collapsed trees, rockfalls, and 0 charging points in 40°C heat, then their claim may just be true

    I personally think there is no such thing as preparation because of We Are All Made redundant there's nothing to go to after this. Also since machines don't have to be paid and since human beings would not be largely paid at all where would money have a place in our society? Unless automation is 1 step towards some kind of Twisted Utopia of soft humans and dominant machines and corrupted dictators running everything.

Who are they going to rule if the population who is working are machines and billions of unemployed humans are their populations what can they possibly tell them that will make them feel any better about their situations?

    I don't fear the day humans will be unemployable because of bots. But I cry for the day bots will have to live with the never ending guilt of failing their first task. To protect humans. Ironicly they might even be able to recreate better humans based on a long though out design and bio science discovery.

    Here's something for everyone to think about. Since humans won't need to work just like the population of horses went down so to it will with humans against your own will of course Bill gates has ya covered. And those left will be chipped to make comparable to the bots and give them orders and instead of government we will have one Supreme person who rules all our lives and controls us. So much for the basic human rights of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
