Luddites - altered states


Sean - the fact you are aware of the real world implementation problems does not mean the technology cannot function perfectly well in repetitive tasks and the focus of scale is to reduce unit cost via consistency and compliance and repetition, ideal preparation for full automation. Foxconn have replaced production line workers with robots, Uber are intent on replacing divers with robos as two examples. Apart from the automobile it is doubtful there has ever been so much collective human effort undertaken as will occur with AI. The Model T bears little relationship to the current automobile. Automobile ownership expanded with development, so will AI. Uber consider something in the region of 40% of their cost is human drivers. I havent been in a car factory lately but I would expect robot bodyshell welders not humans. Anything in a closed or predictable environment is up for target

The thing is that by the third grade or so, you probably knew why this is bullshit. Every kid is different and picks up information at wildly different rates.

So who decided this was the best way to do it?

Meat growing companies will take self-renewing stem cells from animals and cultivate those in a brewery-like atmosphere. Memphis Meats states that their facilities will be open to the public much like a beer brewery.
