Crikey!
« on: March 01, 2016, 12:12:01 PM »
Whewww! 

Boston Dynamics builds advanced robots with remarkable behavior: mobility, agility, dexterity and speed. We use sensor-based controls and computation to unlock the capabilities of complex mechanisms. Our world-class development teams take projects from initial concept to proof-of-principle prototyping to build-test-build engineering, to field testing and low-rate production.
Organizations worldwide, from DARPA, the US Army, Navy and Marine Corps to Sony Corporation turn to Boston Dynamics for advice and for help creating the most advanced robots on Earth.

 “The Robot Revolution Could Wipe Out 5.1 Million Jobs by 2020”
As exciting as advancing technology is, one can’t help but feel increased anxiety over the rise of the robot.  We have accepted the theory that new technology will, given time, stimulate job growth and improve quality of life.   Data from the past 50 years challenges this assumption.   The political debate over income inequality and stagnant employment highlight the impact but fail to address the underlying quandary.
Any meaningful solution to income inequality and rising long term unemployment (and the associated increases in drug use and suicide rates in the demographic most severely impacted) will need to include meaningful answers to this very challenging scenario.

That is really well done.  What do all the people do when we have replaced all the people work?  How does that lack of purpose play on the mind, on societies?  How long the masters?  VR, AI, Computing, Biotech, robotics, all accelerating.  The next decade is going to be fascinating.  That philosophy degree may finally pay off...unless bot ethicists take over that work as well.

Scary stuff but it is what it is. One of things that gives me piece of mind and the ability to sleep at night is that I never had kids and with that I don't need to worry about their future.

The simple fact is, further despair is imminent and there is nada we can do about it.
