    A world full of robots

    Wow, this is almost scary as much as it is WOW!

    Again, what does this mean for our kids in the future? When we talk about robots and A.I supporting us/helping us as humans, we're also going to need to talk about the implications of jobs loses? What happens when computers can process logic and algorithmic processes much more efficiently than we can (accounting) and what happens to manual labour jobs in the workforce when robots can do this...

    Is this all going to creep up on us, or do we have a handle on this do you think?

    I'm excited about what robots and AI will be doing in the future. In someways it can be likened to when tractors took over from horses, a lot of people no longer had jobs but it created new jobs maintaining the tractors etc. My hope for the future is that robots/computers will do many jobs for us freeing up time for us to spend in the arts. I hope that in the future artists and their work will be valued like engineers and with computers doing the uncreative work more people can spend their time being creative.
