    Of course corporations will get Strong AI robots that can make and repair other robots. The tech is already here, it only need more refinement.

    So why wouldnt the corporations remove the need for humans in those jobs as well?

    And please dont mistake my intent here. I think this whole thing can usher in a Technological Utopia, and I think it probably will.

    But we have to light up the shoals ahead in order to avoid them by discussing the probably pitfalls and have some contingency plans ready to go when if harmful side effects emerge.

    Look, it's really quite simple. When, robots take over more jobs, it will only serve to free up more people to do other things. Things that robots cannot. Things that take creativity for example. Just like with the "Industrial Revolution". The tech is new, but the "problem", or issue, is as old as recorded time. I'm sure the same arguments were made when the first wheel was created, the first time animals were used for work, and the first time any other new technology was created. This is nothing new, and there is no need to scare people with statements like, "Robots are going to take over all our jobs."

    True that jobs are being done by robotics. Also true that drumpfs unemployment figure is outrageous. More than 10k retire every day. The actual number of unemployed is something less than

    Thank you President Obama.

    Wheels did not make themselves, install themselves or repair themselves. Robots will.

    If you cant see how that is different and how that impacts resulting job growth for the first time ever, then I cant help you.

    And if you cannot see that other jobs WILL be created DESPITE AI, then I cannot help you.

    No other jobs that require human beings will be created because strong AI robots will be equally able to do them too, dude.

    Me thinks you haven't an idea what you are talking about.
    By your own words you are shown to be incorrect. Besides, how do you know what jobs will/will not be created in the future? Do you have a crystal ball? Maybe a time machine?

    Ironic, I was thinking you dont have a clue, lol. You clearly do not grasp the significance of what Strong AI is and will do in replacing degreed jobs, to include engineering jobs of all kinds.

    Strong AI is the CAD program to drafting, but for ALL engineering and skilled professions..

    Lol, you still dont get it.

    Whatever.
