    Have you seen CGPGrey video called Humans Need Not Apply? It discusses the eventually takeover of all work and possible entertainment.

    Unless something is done about the current plutocracy then we'll be enjoying a Judge Dredd/Soylent Green dystopian future instead of the bright happy go lucky Star Trek one. Hopefully when true AI emerges, instead of exterminating us, it will keep us a pets.

      I don't think real people will accept that level of stolen jobs by robots. There would be at the very least, a massive number of movements similar to Occupy Wallstreet. At worst, you'd have widespread riots. Eventually the government will be forced to enact laws preventing this to an extent. Or we can only hope.

      I agree that government intervention will be necessary but I don't think it will be to stop automation. Look at driverless car technology, it will be safer, cheaper and more efficient, that one technology will eliminate millions of jobs. It will save lives and resources, I doubt that the government will vote against something like that... but it is the government.

    I highly doubt this is the case, but I can't help thinking that a Lawyer named Ross is inspired by Mike Ross from Suits lol.

    The cosmos may eventually thank us for being the stepping stone, the larval stage as it were, to a higher consciousness, but I don't feel too good about being the husk that gets sloughed off.

    Will we end up as Daleks, Cybermen, Borg, or just dust bunnies clinging lifelessly to the power cords of the self aware world wide web? Beats me. I guess I'll go drown my sorrow with some "delicious" Wendy's. Shh shh shhhh--go to sleep!

    Hush little larva, don't say a word, Watson's gonna give you a cyber herd.

    And if that cyber herd should think, Watson's gonna give you a helpful link.

    And if that helpful link is broke, Watson's gonna buy you a brick of coke.

    And if that coke don't trade for grass, Watson's gonna put you in cooking class.

    And if that cooking class teach code, Watson's gonna write you a mind upload.

    And if that mind upload break down, you're the latest larva who must go drown...sigh.

    We had our ups and downs, but it was pretty good run, wasn't it, fellow humans? (Chokes back tears.)

    Haven't robots been stealing jobs since at least the 80's, or whenever the auto industry started making automated assembly lines.

    "Ross" should be given an always-online office only accessible via VR! Let "Ross" choose what he thinks he would look like as a human and allow people to visit his office in the VR-verse for proper face-to-face legal advice!
