Re: Huawei 5G Vision
@vnewman  Wow, that is a little creepy. I was just reading about a robot that can do something, I think it was in warehousing or something like that, which is definitely going to replace a lot of human jobs. It's getting spooky.

Re: Huawei 5G Vision
In other creepy news, a Redwood, California based company, revealed the world’s first completely automated drone. The Skydio R1 is an AI-powered autonomous drone that flies all on its own. It locks on to a subject (like yourself, going on a run) and follows along through trees and obstacles, without losing track using 13 cameras.

Re: Huawei 5G Vision
@elizabethv Perfect assessment! And we'll all die of heart disease and other ailments that go along with just sitting around doing nothing. I wonder who the paycheck will go to though? And who will be writing the checks?

Re: Huawei 5G Vision
All great questions to which there are no easy answers I believe beyond the fact that jobs that require an extreme amount of versatility and adaptation to a wide variety and quickly-changing circumstances will be the ones left to humans. For example - preschool teacher s one that comes to mind.

Re: 5G
@freehe - I really think our society as a whole not only needs to be looking at and talking about these issues, but making voices heard. The economy can't survive with almost no one working. I get that the rich can get really really rich using robots and not paying out for labor, but what will those of use who aren't on the right end of that game do for a living? I still say Japan has the right idea here, by not allowing technology to replace a person in a job. Otherwise, we're on the fast road to serfdom and we'll be there a whole lot faster than most anyone wants to admit.

Re: 5G and Robotics
@afwriter - It truly makes me wonder what kinds of jobs my kids will be able to get as teenagers. A lot of parents plan their children's futures on them being able to get a job once they reach a certain age. I started working when I was 14. If McDonald's is running all automated, what jobs will teenagers of the future hold?

Re: Huawei 5G Vision
@srufolo1 - I tend to think more along the lines of a future like the movie Surrogates. Where we all sit in our homes and get fat and lazy and send them out into the world for us to do jobs that we wouldn't want to do outside of in a video game.

Re: Huawei 5G Vision
@vnewman This is just creeping up on us, slowly and we are basically unaware of what's really happening. It's all about lies. We are not being "freed up" to do better jobs. We are being phased out. What is our future really? Will we even have a culture anymore?

Re: Robots and 5G
Looking on the bright side - think about all the implications of using this technology in dangerous environments: factories where they are using dangerous chemicals in productions, nuclear plants, etc. Send in the clowns? No send in the robots!
