If you haven’t watched this YouTube clip put together by a Jr High Science teacher in England it’s a positively terrifying glimpse into the future. It’s basically how robots are going replace human jobs and we will be as helpless to prevent it from happening as the offensive line of the Carolina Panthers was at preventing the Denver Broncos blitzing D in super bowl 50! If you want to be the offensive coordinator of your own life, you might want to start preparing for a future that’s going to look a whole lot different than the world we all grew up in.
Today, both Picasso and Einstein are walking amongst us at least statistically speaking. The current world population equals the total amount of people who have EVER lived! Just reflect on that for a moment than consider the ramifications of having an Einstein being able to communicate with a Sir Isaac Newton in today’s connected society. Folks, electric cars aren’t only our future, but driverless electric cars are at that! If you’re a cab driver who is out of a job because an Uber driver ate your lunch, rest assured there is a robot that’s going take that Uber fellow out at the knees!
But rest only at your own peril. Nobody is safe in today’s rapidly changing world! Not you, not Nordstrom’s and certainly not UPS or FedEx now Amazon is being reported to be assembling a worldwide delivery system.
Most people look at me like I have two heads when I talk about what I’m seeing and the potential ramifications it has to our society. Virtually every parent is aghast at the thought their kids might not grow up to earn a traditional four year college degree. Even our politicians preach the merits of a “free” University education for all.
But bring up robots making the majority of those degrees obsolete and you’ll hear the music screech to a halt at any party your (or at least I’m) at!
Elon Musk the founder of Tesla, the pioneering electric car producer (and a Stanford drop out) might just be the modern day equivalent of Thomas Edison considering his accomplishments; the privatization of space, the creation of the corporation Solar City, and his current hyper loop initiative, all before he even turned 40! Oh ya he’s also recently raised a billion dollars to create an organization dedicated to fully developing A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) If you think this thing with robots taking over the world (aka Terminator) is Hollywood stuff only, consider that Musk is on record saying Artificial Intelligence is potentially more damaging for our planet than nuclear weapons!
Maybe that’s why he’s trying to colonize Mars. All I’m trying to do is get you to watch this video and at least consider a world where your kids don’t have to go to college, like, well…robots! Hah!
Let me know whatcha think?!
