    No amount of re-education or training will be able to compensate for the number of jobs that will be automated, no matter how much "new jobs will be created" spin by the corporates and futurists. It's a hot topic at think tanks and research organizations around the world: what will people do, what will society become, when human beings are no longer required for most jobs? One report projects that 83% of workers earning less than $20 an hour will be replaced by an AI system, and sooner than we think.

    "There goes our hobby" ... more like "there goes meaningful work and careers for millions, billions of people!" Has my basic income deposit arrived yet?

    Well by all means don't re-educate then! More chances for me! ;-)

    They said all this when the industrial revolution was under way. Back then it was a farm community. Point is, life, huh, finds a way.

    Exactly, I recall hunter-gatherers saying the exact same thing when the first farmers started to settle

    I get the creeps thinking about self-driving cars, let alone self-flying, no-pilots-aboard airliners.

    I'm with you. I'm not fond of the thought of sitting in seat 50F while a robot navigates around thunderstorms over the Equator, perhaps without much thought of what our fuel state will look like by the time we reach our destination far down in South America, for example. I'm probably young enough to own a self driving car at some point, but maybe not the self driving plane.
