The rationale for immigrant workers has always been “we need them for jobs American’s won’t do.” Within 10 years, 90 percent of human labor on farms and will be replaced by robots. So, where are the 30 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. working these days? Certainly not on farms

Technocracy promises Utopia but delivers dystopian despair instead. Several years ago, the head of assembly giant Foxconn retained the head zookeeper from the Beijing zoo to consult on employee management and reducing suicides; it hasn’t worked.
Facebook is accused by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation of smearing rivals and ‘threatening democracy’ to distract from its own political problems. Attacks against left and right prove the point that Zuckerberg is a Technocrat.
Google is one of the most data-hungry Technocrat companies on earth, and is integrating health data and health AI into its company by merging DeepMind. This has broken many promises made by both companies and exposes patient data en mass.
Retail stores are planning opt-in facial recognition in return for giving you shopping rewards. Thus, your biometric data as well as your buying history will be available for sale to the highest bidder. When combined with data from other stores, the data-hungry Technocrats will know more about you than you know about yourself.
Dubai aspires to Technocracy by automating everything with technology. They were the first to introduce robocops on patrol. Dubai also leads the Islamic world in Fintech products and implementations.
Employees and labor unions are worried that employers are pressuring them into being microchipped, which could lead to oppressive micro-managment. This is compelling technology to Technocrat managers because it will squeeze even more efficiency from their fleshly robots.
Technocrat Toby Walsh spoke on the future of AI: “Society shapes technology and technology can shape society.” Technocracy is all about social engineering, or shaping society, into man’s image. AI is not the solution to the world’s “wicked” problems.
The video news industry is being disrupted with a cheap technology that reads news as well as a human, all made possible by AI and advanced graphics. Of course, it is China’s latest invention to displace its massive population.
The entire trillion dollar grocery industry is transforming before your eyes as Amazon sparks a robot war with other grocery store enterprises. Stores will be largely free of cashiers, pickers and stockers, putting millions of people out of work. Technocrats invent because they can not because there is a good reason to do so.
