Martin Ford Asks: Will Automation Lead to Economic Collapse?
[link to singularityhub.com]

Will the future be filled with cool technologies and endless opportunities or will our own creations lead to eventual doom? I tend to think the former. Technology has seemingly endless ability to improve the health, freedom, and happiness of our lives. Even optimistic futurists like Ray Kurzweil and James Canton admit, however, that the road to advancing technology is fraught with dangers. Super viruses, artificial intelligences run amok, environmental calamity Ė science has its threats as well as its promises.

With the recent global economic slump, some have pointed to automated manufacturing and services as a possible explanation for why unemployment stays so high despite some financial recuperation. Others think that automation has the potential to outright stop the global economy if we donít do something drastic to change. Personally, robotic labor seems like a brilliant idea that will ultimately create more wealth, and open up more opportunity for humans to pursue enjoyable work. No matter where you sit in that debate, you have to admit that robot labor is a growing force to be reckoned with

Living in the prison of my mind
How am I supposed to reach heaven in the sky
