Regulate, says Musk – OK, but who writes the New Robot Rules?

will the rise of the Robots

also cause an uprising of those displaced by them?

There is a potential for well over 50% of the workforce to be replaced by Robots and A.I. over the next 10-15 years. As Robots and A.I. Systems don't pay any taxes, the government coffers will be even more up shit creek then than they are today.

Poverty will rise to levels not seen for at least 200 years.

"Let them eat cake" contributed to a lot of people losing their head. Will these pesky non tax paying immigrant robots suffer the same fate?

I find it slightly ironic that Elon Musk is talking about this. He has stated previously that he wants to make cars with as little human involvement as possible. I wonder if he has had a change of thought?

Interesting times we live in...
