TN Note: Technocrats use science to re-engineer society and ultimately create a scientific dictatorship along the lines of Huxley’s Brave New World. However, when it comes to the production and distribution of goods and services, robots are more reliable, easier to control, and more efficient. People, on the other hand, get sick, are fickle, talk back, make mistakes and ask for raises. So, which is easier to monitor and control: humans or robots? 

As we reach the middle of the 21st century, half the population of the world will lose their job to a machine. Yes, this is another ‘robots will take our jobs’ story.

The latest comes from Moshe Vardi, professor at Rice University , Houston, who delivered a talk to the American Association for the Advancement of Science , exploring the question: “If machines are capable of doing almost any work humans can do, what will humans do?”

Future belongs to the machines

Vardi reckons that half of workers across the globe will be replaced by machines within the next 30 years, wiping out middle-class jobs and “exacerbating inequality”. He noted that robots would take over in many spheres of life, including automated driving and sex robots. As the Guardian reports, he also observed that this future is likely to mean humans have much more leisure time — indeed we may only work a handful of hours per week.

Work is essential

However, this might not be the utopia we imagine. Vardi warned: “I do not find this a promising future, as I do not find the prospect of leisure-only life appealing. I believe that work is essential to human wellbeing.” Of course, if you don’t have to do a job, life doesn’t become ‘leisure-only’ — you can go for voluntary work for example. Perhaps Vardi is worried that many won’t see it like that, though.

So, robots do all the work, people do not do much if any work at all and the companies using the robots…how are they going to fill their pockets with money? I guess they do not mind going out of business for lack of buyers of/for their products. The people are going to have to hoof it to the mountains if they want to stay alive because with worker robots also will come the more advanced military robots that are programmed to rid the world of people because they are only eating, sleeping and unnecessarily taking up space.
