The machines are rising up. They are about to take over and make slaves of us all. This is the beginning.

Maybe one of them could haul your boat or kayak overland into a remote area. 

Of course, youd probably go homeless to afford one.

Were I to get into the trades today, robotics is what I would pursue. Going to be a huge future, not only in design and engineering, but in diagnostics and repair.

Eventually, any job that is repetitive, will be replaced with robotic technology. The money saved on salaries, benefits, and down time will far exceed the initial cost and maintenance of the robots.

And where do all the humans go to get work? Don't say 'service industry' because in Japan, robots are already replacing people in those positions. There's even a hotel there that's entirely staffed by robots.

A quick answer....killing robots! *sound of a shotgun racking*

I have seen the robotic evolution in the automotive industry.

Looking at the industry now, compared to where it started is amazing.

I spent 28 years installing and programming robotic assembly lines.

At first every move a robot made had to be programmed. If any thing changed ,someone had to reprogram the robot.

That was usually me.

 

The biggest advancement in robotics I have seen,was 3D cameras and lasers.  That gave robots vision with depth perception.

At that point a basic program could be installed and the robot could adjust from there.

It's only a matter of time before the programmer is no longer needed.

 

Since I am now retired, someone else will be involved in that.

I will just go fishing.

Just watch. Amazon will be the pioneer with their warehouses. They're are already robots making fast food. My sister has teamed up with a bot startup that will eliminate bookkeeping jobs that have already been outsourced to india and south America. A lot of unskilled labor will be unemployed. America's workforce will need to adapt or become obsolete.

Always a great topic. Somewhat sensitive, but great.

 

Do you think old manual cotton pickers begrudged the devlopment of tractors and mechanical cotton picking machines? Just the displacement it caused, not the work itself.

 

If, as mentioned on 60 Minutes the other day, 40% of jobs in the not so distant future will be replaced by automation and robots, if you own a company that creates a good or a service, to whom will you sell it? That is, if more and more automation and robotics implies less and less work, so less and less income, explain how the owners of the automation will find customers and be paid?

 

It will create a new social and economic paradigm. It is already slowly at work, hard to see, but it began with the industrial revolution and is gaining speed now.

The wal mart in the town next to ours is the testing ground for robotic shopping. They added on an enormous section only accessible by the bots so they can shop. It's the first of it's kind. You place your grocery order and the ot has it ready for you under an hour.

Do the bots have bed head and wearing pajamas to fit in?

No but they park their suvs on the parking spot line and sometimes in the fire lane, so they can run in real "quick".

Wait 'til you find a bunch of robots on your honey holes.

Luckily robots can't do my job! Although when a squirrel chews a hole in someone's soffit 50 feet off the ground, I could use some help from a robot drone to fix it

My son has entered an early college program while still in high school for just this purpose. He is already learning code to make robots do assigned tasks.

 

IT, robotics and advanced manufacturing are the hot jobs.

Before I retired we had trouble finding people skilled in robotics. We started our own training facility in the factory.

 It is a good field to get into, but it often comes with long hours and sometimes travelling.

So true. I have made him aware a job in this field will not be a 9-5, weekends off one like his parents have.

 

He knows he might get a call at 2am to come fix a robot on an assembly line that has broken down.

No different than any other I/T Support position. Back in the 80's I was the Technical Support person, normal hours were 8-4:30 but carried a beeper evenings and weekends. Occasionally got calls at 1am to come and fix the networked printer so they could ship orders.

 

Of course I still had to be there at 8am for my normal functions - but the OT was alright for my call-ins.
