Robots Are Already Replacing Us

March 1 2013

by: Wired Magazine

Why hire a human when a machine can do it better and faster?

Let’s face it: The robots are coming. Before we know it, we’re all going to be replaced by mechanical versions of ourselves. And a lot of people might find this scary—but not me.

For one thing, do you have any idea how much free time I’m going to have? I’ll have a robot to do my job for me. Instead of getting up early, rushing to work, sitting in meetings for hours, and then hosting a show every night, here’s how my typical day will go: sleep until noon, go to the gym, take a bath, kick back with a crossword puzzle and a tall glass of buttermilk, get caught up on Homeland, eat an omelet, play with my dog, eat another omelet, flip through the SkyMall catalog, take another bath, eat one last omelet, then fall asleep in my waterbed by 11 pm with Sounds of the Rainforest wafting from my white-noise machine. In other words, life will be perfect. (Also, I’ll never go to the gym—that part was a lie.)

On the weekends, I’ll hang out with my robot buddy. (His name will be Blarvex 840. I’ll call him Jim.) We’ll walk my dog together along the West Side Robot Motorway—I’ll sip a Jamba Juice, he’ll munch playfully on a handful of loose bolts. He’ll tell me how things are going at the show. And I’ll tell him about all the projects I finally have time to work on now that he’s replaced me at Late Night. Important projects I’ve been putting off for years—like my still-unfinished version of Leisure Suit Larry: The Musical; or my Brady Bunch fanfic novel, 50 Shades of Greg; or my quest to finally master C++ so I can finish that program to help catalog my VHS library. Or my tireless campaign to legalize heroin.

After we’re done hanging out, we’ll head our separate ways—he to his industrial-grade docking station on the Lower East Side, I to my apartment building filled with Scandinavian furniture and carbon-based life-forms. And I’ll watch him as he walks away, looking very much like me—just with slightly smoother skin and more manageable hair (almost too manageable, if you ask me; it’s actually sort of creepy). And I’ll smile and I’ll think to myself, I really like that dude.

Better Than Human: Why Robots Will — And Must — Take Our Jobs

February 22 2013

by: Kevin Kelly

Imagine that 7 out of 10 working Americans got fired tomorrow.
What would they all do?

It’s hard to believe you’d have an economy at all if you gave pink slips to more than half the labor force. But that—in slow motion—is what the industrial revolution did to the workforce of the early 19th century. Two hundred years ago, 70 percent of American workers lived on the farm. Today automation has eliminated all but 1 percent of their jobs, replacing them (and their work animals) with machines. But the displaced workers did not sit idle. Instead, automation created hundreds of millions of jobs in entirely new fields. Those who once farmed were now manning the legions of factories that churned out farm equipment, cars, and other industrial products. Since then, wave upon wave of new occupations have arrived—appliance repairman, offset printer, food chemist, photographer, web designer—each building on previous automation. Today, the vast majority of us are doing jobs that no farmer from the 1800s could have imagined.

It may be hard to believe, but before the end of this century, 70 percent of today’s occupations will likewise be replaced by automation. Yes, dear reader, even you will have your job taken away by machines. In other words, robot replacement is just a matter of time. This upheaval is being led by a second wave of automation, one that is centered on artificial cognition, cheap sensors, machine learning, and distributed smarts. This deep automation will touch all jobs, from manual labor to knowledge work.

First, machines will consolidate their gains in already-automated industries. After robots finish replacing assembly line workers, they will replace the workers in warehouses. Speedy bots able to lift 150 pounds all day long will retrieve boxes, sort them, and load them onto trucks. Fruit and vegetable picking will continue to be robotized until no humans pick outside of specialty farms. Pharmacies will feature a single pill-dispensing robot in the back while the pharmacists focus on patient consulting. Next, the more dexterous chores of cleaning in offices and schools will be taken over by late-night robots, starting with easy-to-do floors and windows and eventually getting to toilets. The highway legs of long-haul trucking routes will be driven by robots embedded in truck cabs.
