Martin Taylor Exactly Martin. It's only when robots become self-creating and self-maintaining, that there might be a problem, as all our needs will be met.

Only until the ultimate end-game (EG). Technology, until EG, will replace jobs, but create more. The Luddites were weavers in the Industrial Revolution who revolted because of their job losses due to automated weaving machines. The pain of job loss, is that some people won't have the time (too old), money (too poor) or skills (not smart enough) to retrain. These people will sadly feel pain. Example? Drivers in their 50s, when driverless cars come in perhaps? If your boss found that a new piece of technology could make you work twice as fast, would they just ask you to work half-time for the same pay!? Not likely. Companies just work more and more efficiently. What is EG? When robots can be fully self-sustaining! They mine materials that they compose of, working robots fix broken robots, robots build yet more robots etc. From that point on we will get all farming, and other things we need done by them, without us being needed! This is when humans no longer need to work. This is why Elon Musk thinks we need UBI (Universal Basic Income).

What we call AI can just recognize patterns when fed with lots of data. It is not intelligent in the common meaning if the word. It does stuff for sure but wont replace more job than other it/digital tools.

Here’s an idea they have to have a specific amount of human workers in any business and few AI’s
