In the future, will “Human’s Need Not Apply”?
Back in 2014 CGP Rey released the video “Humans Need Not Apply” highlighting a future where our jobs are going to be increasingly replaced by technology. For the history of human history we have removed much of our need for manual labor through mechanical muscle, now we are working rapidly to replicate and replace the need for humans with mechanical minds.
Is technology and AI going to take all of our jobs? No. And it will be a while before it takes most of them. But, AI only need to replace some of our jobs to create a major economic disaster. The video focuses on transportation – transportation employees xx people and we are on the precipice or replacing the human driver with more reliable, safer, and cheaper autonomous driving.
