Darn robots taking our jobs

By | March 14, 2017

All this talk about robots or A.I. taking our jobs starts to be funny. Same old story. So Bill Gates wants them darn robots getting taxed, really I was not expecting this from the guy who helped to probably replace the most number of people with computers.
My opinion is summed by the following “urban legend” story:

Henry Ford II and Walter Reuther, the legendary head of the United Auto Workers Union, jointly touring a recently automated car manufacturing plant. The Ford Motor Company CEO taunts Reuther by asking, ‘Walter, how are you going to get these robots to pay union dues?’ Reuther comes right back at Ford, asking, ‘Henry, how are you going to get them to buy your cars?’

A very good article on this Robots are Taking Away Our Jobs (and it’s not just advisors)
