Why? Because robots will do all the work faster and much more efficiently than humans. This is the epitome of the Technocrat mindset… who needs humans, anyway?
4th Industrial Revolution
Robots are ramping up to replace workers in every manufacturing and service industry, displacing millions of current and future workers. Carried to extreme, will humans be needed at all?
These robots will use AI and human control over the Internet to deliver small packages. They picked Austin for their first U.S. trial because of its progressive policies and citizens. Some may liken it to an invasion of cockroaches, however.
Construction workers world-wide, especially brick-layers, are in for a rude shock as their jobs will virtually disappear in the next 10 years. Fastbrick can lay perfect stacks of bricks in 1/4 the time it takes a skilled mason.
Inevitably, every modern technological advance will be somehow factored into killing people, as is the case with the Marine new MAARS weaponized robot. One can fully expect that these kind of systems will be developed for local police force use as well.
Simultaneous human control over multiple robots will pave the way for robots to outnumber their handlers. In the Internet of Things, devices will be able to communicate intelligently with each other, in order to cooperate or coordinate on a human-directed task or mission.
Robots will displace almost all agricultural workers in the future, including cowboys and sheep herders. Swagbot hopes to lead the way in herding and monitoring. ⁃ Technocracy News Editor
TN Note: If people cannot be trusted to think rationally, how can robots who are programmed by humans do so? Machines will never be human, but mankind will be deceived into thinking that they are.
TN Note: Key takeaway: “Anything that is highly repetitive, that follows a repetitive role and uses some kind of technology, can be automated.” The latest forecast of human displacement is 12 million by 2025. It’s staggering.
TN Note: Since robots are made by humans, it follows that robots will be created to do what humans do, including the dark side of hunting and killing. Governments and terrorists will love this technology.
