Wake up people
Some of you people must have falling off the giving away free brain truck
In a sense, yes. That would mean that hardware would become so general-purpose that software engineers are no longer required to program it; we could have robots to cook, clean, farm, drive, construct houses, etc. I could see the world becoming a much better place if that happened, and I might be able to shift jobs to developing and maintaining the machine learning algorithms involved.
It's maybe the one case where I think communism could actually work is with general-purpose hardware/robots capable of being programmed through ambiguous human languages disambiguated through interactions. They basically become mechanical slaves and potentially enable a form of fully-automated luxury communism as they call it.
You know for that to happen, they would have to kill at least 80% of people around the world. Because they would never accept it
The economics and government factors are something totally unpredictable to me. But I could see the tech, especially if it's capable of making self-repairs and self-replicating, as eliminating the need for human labor. I could also see a scenario that ends up dooming the entire human race! :-D
I actually work in automation, so for the moment I'm safe.
But there are tools that automate most of my functions in development. Fortunately the human parts aren't being automated and I have connections for a possible future in Organizational Change Management, which would help in facilitating such a change.
So I'm covered.
My job already made me a robot lol.
When I WAS working, there wasn't, nor will there be in the near future, any chance a robot could replace me. That's not arrogance speaking. When I was called upon to make a sale to a client, I made the sale, using my knowledge of the product or service, my technique for identifying the need of the client then showing how I would be able to fulfill that need, and usually with additional benefits.
Elon Musk has even warned us of this danger! A. I. robotics is destroying humanity and the 1% no longer need us!
to quote what an earthling just said somewhere.. "that robot does not replace a human... it frees a human to do so much more and many other things... than just packing and checking groceries"
edit/update... there is no substantial difference on losing your job to automation... than losing your job to another person who is more capable or is paid less, or many of the other plausible scenarios in which people just lose their jobs
you are still going to be out of work and THEN you just find ANOTHER job... that is life and that has been life for over a century now, with automation
If I can replace them too then sure
. Seeing I am currently not working. I definitely would let it replace me. In hopes that I would be able to take its job. That would be a fun way to get a job. Jokes on you , stupid robot.
No, I want robot manufacturers too be drawn and quartered 🤬 and the UAW can suck it!!!
My job can't be replaced by a robot. That's is silly to have a robot work with a computer. I don't think we reach the AI to replace me with software any time soon either.
Robot does the work, I'll take the salary please.
Otherwise no haha.
If I have a remote control for it, I'd be ok.
However - I'm not sure how patient a robot will be with our -errm- ''individualistic'' work force in the workshop :D
Honestly, I don't care. I hate my job. xD I work in a warehouse, so I don't see why we couldn't have robots working the warehouse for us.
It could possibly happen, but that means I have to learn better programming than I already do in order not to get the boot. Lol
I had a discussion with my boss last week. That's going to happen for me sometime in the next year or two...
a lot of the work at my job is already done by robots
At least at my job we make everything by human hands. No robots
Yes it will be grateful if someone takes my place and attends school! Much convenient for sleep.
If it happens it happens. Life is about adjustment. It never stays the same.
No, but I'm a software developer and it's hard to imagine that happening any time soon.
It's not going to matter if we want it or not it's going to happen sooner or later
As long as I'm still getting paid or the concept of money becomes obsolete, I don't mind. It would give me more time to do things I want to do.
Nope. I'm a software engineer and it's kinda discussed but then again someone has to make robots right?
If it does my job, and I tend to its maintenance, yes. Other wise no. My job is physical, so if it could do all the heavy lifting, that would be awesome.
That does not compute

LMAO I could see it now. A robot police officer chasing a criminal. No, that would not be a good thing. Officers have discretion, something a robot would not have. For example, if I pull someone over, I have the option of being lenient. A robot would be programmed not to be so lenient. In a shootout with a suspect, a human officer might be able to find a way to end the situation without death. A robot would just kill the suspect.
Outside of policing, robots replacing humans is a bad idea. It is already difficult for humans to break out of poverty with the available jobs we currently have. A robot replacing a human would take jobs away, which would take away income, which would lead to an increase in crime out of necessity to survive. A robot should be an assistant to a working human, not a replacement for a human.
