Machines could put more than half the world’s population out of a job in the next 30 years, according to a computer scientist who said on Saturday that artificial intelligence’s threat to the economy should not be understated.
Expert Moshe Vardi told the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS): “We are approaching a time when machines will be able to outperform humans at almost any task.
“I believe that society needs to confront this question before it is upon us: if machines are capable of doing almost any work humans can do, what will humans do?”

Vardi insisted that even if machines make life easier, humanity will face an existential challenge.

Get the picture?
Considering how eager the rich have been to eliminate our jobs and promote the development of AI, this should have been obvious to anyone who is paying attention.
