This is sort of disturbing - in 20 years maybe, robots like could take over almost all of human occupation. Then you're going to have 6 billion + people on this Earth, who are also unemployed and therefore probably homeless etc. THEN you're going to get the Matrix all over again, or AI is going to take over the computers or something...in all seriousness though, this sort of thing should have its limits...

I didn't click on the link, but common sense tells you that everyone in the world won't be unemployed.

Very simple example: If Bill Gates somehow gets all the money in the world, he instantly becomes just as poor as everyone else. His money becomes worthless becuase he can't use it for anything. Money only has value when it can be traded for things. If you can't buy anything, then money is worthless.

Robots don't need money, so they make good workers, but lousy consumers. Without consumers, factories of robots produce nothing of value.

But there are still products made. Yes there will be consumers, but what about the people who used to work in the factory? It may not go as far as I said above, but it's still a possibility.

If robots are ever gonna gain intelligence like this of ppl then they will surely find something to consume,that`s for sure.

On the topic,as long as there will be republicans we have nothing to worry about http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Why do those Japanese still build humanoid robots? I know, technically impressive. But why? What's wrong with not looking for substitutes and simply go on with your life?

ok, that`s really creepy. if i didn`t know better i`d say there was a little guy in there! I also see they`ve got him doing menial labour already... It`s going to have to be a bit sharper than that to take the new staff man and woman from serving the coffee to the crew!

Actually, when I was a kid this is what I expected we`d have by the year 2000 in our homes! So it`s very late.

that was amazing.

Automation is a massive threat to employment. People always go on about migration of employment to China etc but automation is as big a threat, if not more so.

It does make you wander what things will be like in 30 years and I'm not thinking we're going to be looking at a Star Trek style utopia (which, apart from the uniforms, is a shame).
