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.
4th Industrial Revolution
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.
TN Note: Workers? Who needs workers any more? The Technocrat mindset deals much better with inanimate objects like machines and robots, rather than people. With machines, efficiency can be hammered out to the last degree.
What Britain needs: More robots, less migrant workers. This makes for an interesting twist on using migration as a means of implementing Sustainable Development. After all, it is globalist Peter Sutherland who claims that a requirement for Sustainable Development is a multicultural society – driven by migration. Still, it is easier to manage robots than people, so perhaps Technocracy will find a winner here.
