Automation

Humans need not apply

The whole nature of the discussion about the future of work in an increasingly automated future still has the air of unbelievability about it.  If you’ve just come across the topic, it is hard to grasp just how advanced the technology is.  Once people are made aware of that fact start to think about it — will Google cars and 3D printers really take all the jobs? — the issue attracts pessimists and realists in equal numbers.  It invites scoffs from the allegedly realistic and groans from those who look at the current state of democracy and can’t believe we will able to manage things in a way that benefits a majority rather than a minority.  It is a hell of a topic.
