Google-backed robot overlords take over supervision of human workers

How long do you think our economy can function with 50% of the current jobs replaced by technology? What do you think will happen to the cash flow of the other 50% of jobs?

It is mathematically just a matter of time before you figure it out....

Why? is way too exciting right now.  All of Alstry's forecasts are becoming mainstream.

 I know that change is hard for many, and this will be a change unlike anything humanity has ever seen before

When technology threatens your job, get control of that technology and use it to your advantage.  My profession as a verbatim stenographic reporter was challenged back in the 70s by multi-track electronic recording; however, my skills, background and experience won the day.  In the 80s, computer aided translation of my 250 word per minute writing ability allowed me to become a certified realtime reporter. commanding substantially higher rates per page reporting depositions all the while providing instant on-screen English translation for all participants to view during the progress of depositions or meetings.  Change can be good.  Embrace it and make it your own.

I agree...but what happens when the court system adopts real time digital recording and instantly translatable into any language, searchable and printable?

Alstry is still crazy.  It is good to know there are some things you can count on.

What happens when artificial intelligence becomes so advanced that we don't need many doctors, engineers, or researchers anymore?

Technology is a runaway train at this point. Humans were just a link the the chain of evolution. After us will come the era of non-biological intelligence, then even shorter than our reign they will create the next facet of intelligence. Will it ever stop? Will it create god?

First of all, you predicted demonstrations before labor day.  And they in fact started after labor day.  And, despite media coverage, they are really small.  Here in LA, the other day I saw fifty people waiving placards walking down Grand Street on a Sunday while a bunch of tourists snapped quizzical pictures of them and while nobody who worked in the financial sector was at work.  OWS needs to step up its game big time.

Second, the whole "computers are replacing us" thing with computers taking all of our jobs has been an incredibly common idea/theme since at least the mid-1990s, and it first really surfaced in the 1980s, resuling in the Terminator movie franchise among other things.  Really it originates at least with 2001: A Space Oddessy.  Don't kid yourself about your originality.

Al, you never answered my question- " when we are forced to hunt each other for food.."  Can one eat zombies or not!

I'm thinking "Zomburritos"?  A simple yes or no will suffice. Is Chinese "take out" an option? I must know these things.

Sincerely, yer 'ol pal.
