    Chavez replaced Venezuelan workers with robots? Robots do everything in Zimbabwe now? Amazing. They never mention this in The Economist.

    That's the best you can do? Why did I assume you actually wanted to discuss the issue?

    Here's an idea, why don't all of these Liberal Billionaires donate the money for these "brilliant" plans instead of the average taxpayer funding them ?

    Zuckerberg is worth around 63 billion he could donate 62 billion and live comfortably off the rest. That would fund his idea for a lot of people.

    Intelligent robots threaten millions of jobs

    Advances in artificial intelligence will soon lead to robots that are capable of nearly everything humans do, threatening tens of millions of jobs in the coming 30 years, experts warned Saturday.

    "We are approaching a time when machines will be able to outperform humans at almost any task," said Moshe Vardi, director of the Institute for Information Technology at Rice University in Texas.

    "I believe that society needs to confront this question before it is upon us: If machines are capable of doing almost any work humans can do, what will humans do?" he asked at a panel discussion on artificial intelligence at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

    Vardi said there will always be some need for human work in the future, but robot replacements could drastically change the landscape, with no profession safe, and men and women equally affected.

    "Can the global economy adapt to greater than 50 percent unemployment?" he asked.

    When Goertzel asked the duo whether robots could really be moral and ethical, Han countered: "Humans are not necessarily the most ethical creatures".
    The robot later pointed out: "In 10 or 20 years, robots will be able to do every human job."
    A gentler Sophia conceded that humans do have "some ability to reflect and self-modify".
    She insisted her aim was to work together with people, before Han "joked" he thought the robots' goal was to take over the world.
    The machines had been programmed to banter and learn from each other, and had been trained to act like humans from movies and YouTube, said Goertzel.
    Their malleable skin is controlled by dozens of motors, while computers in their torsos help with vision and movement. They can also connect to wifi to use cloud computing, where they will eventually share a vast amount of knowledge, Goertzel said.
    Robots could be "as smart as people" in as little as three years, he predicted.​

    /---- My wife and I will take a one time payout of $100,000,000. The average dividend is 5% generating $5,000,000 a year. If we watch out budget and clip some coupons, settle for a slightly used Bentley's I think we can scrape by. So were is my check?
