Robots v Wetware

Half of jobs in Japan could be done by robots

Considering also that AI is smarter than the average college applicant in Japan (this actually implies that robots can be made today that are smarter than 70-90% of the US population).

There is a paradox at work here: as this trend continues (as it most certainly will), those of us who are the most creative and talented will have to work even harder, to generate income to pay higher taxes and social costs to maintain those who can’t be bothered to (or are genuinely incapable of) learning actually useful skills.

I’m not sure how society will respond, but it’s time that we start to reconsider how society rewards work and creativity, and how taxes (who disincentivize work and creativity) are levied.

I have little hope that this will be solved in the current political climate.
