@Lahsen2016 I don't think they are evil, if that software existed back when they started the company then they would't hire extra people just to have them employed.
What happens with automation is that people can move to more interesting jobs that machines can't do.
Brings up thoughts about whether that should be the case.
If large structures, out of individual control, motivated purely by exponential economic growth, are making decisions that impact large numbers of lives in negative ways - should we encourage them?
If automation could lead to less work for everyone but instead leads to unemployment, what should we do societally?
Don’t have an answer of course, but your comments resonated with thoughts that have been bouncing around in my head for awhile. It is* no one persons fault, but it also seems to impact the world negatively and I’m grappling with that.
@Lahsen2016 most probably I misread you, it makes more sense after rereading (I'm not that good with english)
At some point big diesel powered tractors started harvesting wheat and we all got to work on computers and play Xbox...
The future waits for no one.
