A.I. TAKE OVER: Tech Giants Reveal Robots To Replace Service Workers In Airports, Hotels, or Supermarkets

Published

(The Daily Wire)

Coming soon to a store near you. Or airport. Or hotel. Or supermarket.

Korean tech giant LG on Thursday announced that it would produce new robots intended to take over many jobs in the service industry that now employ actual people. Already, massive food corporations like MacDonald’s are employing computerized kiosks instead of workers to take orders, but soon the robots will be everywhere.

“There have long been predictions that advances in artificial intelligence and automation could end up eliminating millions of jobs over time, and tech companies have been testing robots to carry out a variety of tasks — from working in a pizza parlor to making deliveries that could greatly affect the services industry in the future,” CNBC reported.

LG plans to show off three new “concept robots” at a global consumer electronics show in Las Vegas next week. The robots could be deployed to supermarkets, hotels and airports, although a company spokesman said the robots are “a long way from ready to go public.”

The first one is a server robot that can deliver food and drinks to customers at hotels and airport lounges. It can essentially replace the work done by the waitstaff and be able to do it around the clock.

Second is a porter robot that can handle check-in and check-out services at hotels and carry luggage to rooms. The hotel industry is already experimenting with replacing humans with machines. For example, there are hotels in Japan that are staffed by robots.

Finally, LG’s third new robot is made to work with customers at a supermarket, telling them the price of products and then guiding them through the aisles.

As much as 50% of the worldwide workforce is employed in the service industry. A November report by McKinsey & Company said that as many as 800 million workers worldwide could be replaced at work by robots by 2030. In addition, 12% of jobs globally are transporting goods, which means millions will be out of work when self-driving vehicles are perfected.

Elon Musk, the billionaire CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, says the future looks bleak.

“There certainly will be job disruption. Because what’s going to happen is robots will be able to do everything better than us. … I mean all of us,” Musk said in July.

“Transport will be one of the first to go fully autonomous. But when I say everything — the robots will be able to do everything, bar nothing,” he said. “I am not sure exactly what to do about this. This is really the scariest problem to me, I will tell you.”

Founder of Microsoft Bill Gates, meanwhile, says the robots that take human jobs should pay taxes.

“Certainly there will be taxes that relate to automation,” he said in July. “Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory, that income is taxed and you get income tax, social security tax, all those things. If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level.”

Musk, Gates and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg all believe governments worldwide will one day have to establish “universal basic income,” a program that would give all citizens a set amount of taxpayer money, regardless of whether they have jobs.

“I think we’ll end up doing universal basic income,” Musk told a crowd at the World Government Summit in Dubai in February. “It’s going to be necessary.”

OCD: Conservatives Suffer From Ocasio-Cortez Disorder

Published

on

What was the #1 mistake the media made in the 2016 election?

In the past, the mainstream media ignored anti-establishment candidates it disliked.  Slowly, but surely, their poll numbers would fall.  Yet they couldn’t help themselves when Donald Trump came on the scene in 2015… and they covered him all the way to victory.

Now, Conservatives begin to make the same mistake:  memeing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez like the world is going to end in 12 years.  It would be fine if AOC memes weren’t so juvenile, shit-tier, & flat out not funny.

They fall into a category called “Boomer memes.” It’s a term that pokes fun at the “2nd Greatest Generation” for not being particularly tech savvy, but it’s used here to describe low quality content:  Think fuzzy/irrelevant pictures, generic fonts, usually too much text, and toilet humor.  They might as well call her a “poo-poo” head, because they aren’t changing minds.

Note: The “Boomer” meme

You cannot scroll down your Facebook timeline without seeing her face on one of these perversions posing as “memes.”

Like an ex-girlfriend, she wants your attention.  She wants you to call her back.  She wants you to hate on her.  It fuels her.  You’re essentially working public relations for the DSA Party when you continue to post about her.

“I need you to hate/So I can use you for your energy”

You may think you’re doing some kind of public service calling out her stupidity.  In reality, you’re pushing the disenfranchised right into her arms.   Like an ex-girlfirend, the best thing you can do is be indifferent to her existence.  The opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference… and drives women crazy.    Hanging on her every word and blunder is what the media did to Trump, and it skyrocketed his campaign at every turn.  Think “Grab her by the p*ssy.”

Stop memeing Cortez unless you’re going to do it intelligently.

And if you think she can’t be president, you weren’t paying attention during 2016.

P.S.  Notice I didn’t use her image once.  I did this even though I knew posting it would have given me 100s, if not 1000s of likes.  Don’t be a slave to AOC.  She IS your boss if you meme her.  You don’t work for her.  And neither do we.
