‪Are Droids taking our Jobs?‬



Andrew McAfee

TEDTalks

Posted: Sep 28, 2012


Robots and algorithms are getting good at jobs like building cars, writing articles, translating—jobs that once required a human. So what will we humans do for work? Andrew McAfee walks through recent labor data to say: We ain’t seen nothing yet. But then he steps back to look at big history, and comes up with a surprising and even thrilling view of what comes next.

Fantastic talk!



Why didn't we have a 3-day work week by the 1980s?

Why hasn't double-entry accounting been mandatory in high school for the last 50 years? Double-entry accounting is 700 years old. Is it nothing but propaganda that double-entry accounting is difficult.

Yeah Watson is impressive. But Watson can compare patterns of symbols but it does not UNDERSTAND anything.

It is not about JOB, it is about WEALTH. Why are some people paying some other people to live on the planet? Who owns the land and why?

What did "planned obsolescence" do to the economy? Where do economists do the Deamd Side Depreciation accounting on that?



Great speech! Although as a professional translator I must say that for the most difficvult translation assignments a human brain is still required, it seems that we are going to have a lot less jobs in the future. That will mean lots of unemployment, and on the other hand the people who have a job must work too hard so that they dont lose it to someone else. It's a catch-22 unlöess we figure some way to redistribute labor.
