Will the advancing of technology like robots cause a collapse of society?Locked
Here’s my friend’s short theory (article below by the way): “Car is built by robots or a 3D printer. That car was ordered online with the information for delivery and payment process done through automatic software. That car now drives itself (they are working on self-driving) to the person who ordered it (someone who is likely rich or well off since so few jobs or opportunity are left due to automation).
I wanted to know facts, thoughts and such since this article (which was big news that trended this week) popped up: http://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/robot-may-take-your-job-next-few-years-n499556
I know “History always made NEW jobs when technology advanced…I feel like it’s getting so advanced the new jobs, even repairing robots, will be done by robots. I am a writer/journalist. However, these days a pencil and paper aren’t enough. To survive we must adapt so I am learning online video and podcasts as well. I’m still in college, and graduating soon which is why I am afraid that before I get out or just soon after it will only be years before society crumbles. No need for humans to work=no jobs for humans=no way for most humans to earn money= no way for the humans to feed themselves or their families or even provide warmth. Essentials for just living and not dying in poverty.
