Deep Learning Is Going to Teach Us All the Lesson of Our Lives: Jobs Are for Machines
Scott Santens

The problem is it will never come soon enough for me. Finland might not want half the citizens to starve but the U.S. doesn’t give a crap. The owners of the robots will not give up their share of the money without starting a war to keep it (they have already militarized the police force). They are ready at the drop of a hat to relocate to New Zealand to leave the rest of us to starve. So excuse me if I don’t see this wonderful utopia you are talking about. It might happen eventually, but quite frankly, if I don’t get to participate in the free money and I have to go out and pan handle in some homeless tent city because I am not a rocket scientist (though still very much in the top 85% of ability if you ask me), then I would rather do anything I can to stop it. I could care less about the future generations getting free money.

Bottom line: Nobody is going to be happy for you if you can pursue your dreams if I can’t. I don’t even know what the purpose of any of this AI is other than to manufacture more useless widgets like the Smart Hair Brush. Gimme a break!
