Instead of Technocrats running society, how about robots build by Technocrats instead? There is a major societal shift taking place even as this article is posted.
4th Industrial Revolution
This development is likely what caused Google’s Technocrat/Transhuman Ray Kurzweil to declare that Singularity will be reached in 2029 instead of 2045. Remembering is a dangerous outcome if they are faulty to begin with, or worse, prejudiced against inputs that created them. Based on AI ‘memories’, learning will definitely increase, but will further learning be based on reality or just a wishful computer model?
When diverse AI programs develop their own languages to communicate with each other, humans may or may not be able to translate, especially if the AI learns how to build its own encryption to ‘hide’ from humans.
Major travel agency H.I.S. Co. on Wednesday celebrated the opening of its second robot-staffed Henn na Hotel. The new location is near the Tokyo Disney…
AI provides the ultimate mind-control platform, as we will see with the next big push into smart phones. Technocrats do because the can, not because they should.
Rail systems are already being outmoded by autonomous vehicles because of expense. Autonomous mini-vans can pick people up wherever they are, and transport them to wherever they want to go. No, this is not science fiction or a Jetson’s cartoon.
Fast food restaurants have provided millions of entry-level jobs for teenagers and young adults, but this is coming to an end, thanks to minimum wage legislation. When a minimum-wage worker can be replaced by a robot, the value of human labor is essentially reduced to zero.
Another short-sighted “Oh, gee” moment where the flip-side of inventions turn dark. Yes, robots can be hacked and remotely controlled against you because they are connected to the Internet of Things, Everything is hackable and people with bad intentions will always be around to do so.
Technocrats have created a monster that they now realize could turn and destroy their creators; thus, ‘war games’ are created to learn how to defeat it – Artificial Intelligence. This is another example of an attempt to ‘save the world’ has turned into a ‘destroy the world’ scenario.
Americans are truly in denial over the transformation of global labor markets, where robots could replace almost 50% of all workers by 2030. As this further necessitates a Universal Basic Income, people will exist at the instance of the state.
