Doomsday Realities: Now Robot Jobs––Warnings of the Beast, Pt 3

Fast-Food-Robots        Certainly union organizers suspect robots may soon replace fast food workers, so they work to unionize them.  Those still employed on auto assembly lines already work beside robots who perform jobs they use to do.

But most American workers seem blind to the onslaught of technology hidden in the background waiting to replace them in the work force.  Thomas Frey writes ‘Hi, I’m a Robot and I’m Here To Take Your Job’:

“We are now on the verge of another business transformation, but this time workers are not being replaced by low cost labor in other countries. Rather, they are being replaced by machines.

“But rather than some Stepford Wife-like creation appearing at our door and telling us they were taking our jobs, the true job-stealing culprits have been far more subtle, appearing under the guise of automation, without any clear relationship between the machines and the people they’re replacing.”

Richard Kirsch argues in ‘Why Unions Are Essential To Tackling The Technology Challenge To Good Jobs’:  “With robots taking over factories and warehouses, toll collectors and cashiers increasingly being replaced by automation and even legal researchers being replaced by computers, the age-old question of whether technology is a threat to jobs is back with us big-time.”

Based on research by David Autor and David Dorn, Kirsch concludes that only robots will only steal jobs from low-wage workers. In ‘How Technology Wrecks the Middle Class,’ Autor and Dorn state robots will replace workers in  “ . . . traditional blue-collar production and white-collar office jobs of the past.”

On the other hand, Rebecca burn-Callander––based on her interviews with 21 year old Dmitry Aksenov, founder of Robot-Jobs-1London Brand Management––insists ‘Artificial Intelligence ‘Will Take the Place of Humans within Five Years’.’
Brand Management puts its Artificial Intelligence (AI) to work for huge corporations that “want to outsource customer or staff interactions to computers.”  In other words, replace people with AI.

Akensov claims thousands of companies use his service:  “The only thing that gives away the fact they are talking to a computer is that it responds so fast. “No real person could receive, read and respond to a message in three seconds.”

Aksenov predicts:  “Within five years we will have a system that knows more than a human could ever know and is more efficient at delivering information. It will replace many of the boring jobs currently done by humans. Unfortunately, this may take some jobs from the economy by replacing human beings with a machine. But it is the future.”

This macabre future is like a Science Fiction plot out of Alan Nourse books.  Have Akensov and other AI ‘geniuses’ asked themselves who will purchase their products if everyone’s job is replaced by machines?  Just as Apostle Paul predicts:  “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools (Romans 1: 22).”
