Artificial Intelligence & Robotics

Big Questions

Will we treat our robots the way we treat ourselves? Even better? Or worse?

  • Are people treating Alexa like a servant; or even worse, a slave?

What are the long-term social implications of AI?

Where will all the workers go?

I think of robotics as the application of artificial intelligence (software) to the creation of a physical robot that solves a problem and/or completes a task(s) in the most efficient way possible. But for the survivability of our species as we rush to create robots of every conceivable kind and flood the zone with venture capital, we had better put as much thought and investment into what robots can’t and will never do so we can figure out the new jobs of the future for the millions of workers displaced by ai/robotics.


Is it feasible to develop a robot tax to fund the social costs of dealing with AI-driven unemployment?
