The Inevitability Of Robot Dominance
Jan 1, 2015
Think you have a unique job and robots are just for manual labor? Think again. There are already robots who can manufacture, replace white collar jobs and even perform medical diagnosis. CGP Grey discusses a truly harrowing topic in this video when he considers a future in which human employment will not only be difficult to obtain, but mostly unnecessary.
While there are a plethora of science fiction novels and movies featuring a robot takeover of society, blogger and YouTuber CGP Grey purports that it's no longer a fictional tale. In sci-fi, we worry about how the "machine" will take over humanity in some sort of war. We imagine a quick "invasion" and all is over. Grey says that in reality, the "invasion" will happen, however, it will be a slow and steady rise.
