Moore’s law is coming to an end and this is well known. (https://www.computer.org/…/whats-…/2017/04/mcs2017020041.pdf) The new focus is already in computational efficiency and again this is hardly news. What strikes me is the disappearance of computing into the realm of commodity, a type of furniture we all take for granted. Long gone are the days were techies were in the forefront because they were the first to master the new medium. Think of the first bloggers, not the most talented in writing prose, just the ones with the best overall blend of tech and prose. A.I. is becoming much the same with many of what was considered “advanced tech” now disappear into everyday apps and appliances and it’s not just voice recognition, purchases “suggestions” or Facebook’s tuning of our news feed.
So robots and A.I. are not going to destroy our universe, take our jobs and make humans obsolete, not in a long shot anyway. Sadly https://en.wikipedia.org/…/Number_Six_(Battlestar_Galactica) will remain a fantasy for many of us. But the disruption to the job market will be huge, of Trump proportions. I do feel this is a singular instance in time as we are transitioning once again from the old to the new. Many will have a very hard time adapting, as always. The way we will handle this transition as a society can define our moment in history.
