Machines Taking Over Workplace
I’ve been following the transhumanism movement which concerns the transformation of the homo sapien species through the use of technology in order to enhance our abilities. It is a “posthumanism” idea. I heard this on NPR Radio Times, it’s an interview with the authors of “Race Against the Machine…”, Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee, and they discuss the shifting paradigm of the workforce and the takeover of machines to perform previously human jobs. They don’t see a future with self aware machines, but instead think machines will be responsible for most of the economic output.
