On Tuesday February 24th we added an article to this website talking about a recent Federal report stating 83% of people making under $20 per hour will lose their job to a machine.
Well that same night, Google released a video of its new Atlas robot by Boston Dynamics and this thing is shocking. The article on RonCaskey.com used an example stating package delivery companies like Fedex, UPS, and DHL are only a few robots away from complete automation. Well the Atlas robot can probably fill those positions and complete the automation process.
This robot can pick up and set down packages. All the cables and wires that were attached to the robot in previous versions are now gone and the robot is smarter than ever.
Check out his video.
We are not far from a new world. This could mark the begining of the end of physical labor as we know it. And technically, the Atlas goal is obvisously to be a “Smart Robot”. We could make “Dumb Robots” that are capable of completing a single task with very little difficulties. Like a burger flipper.
Make your kids learn to write code. With the boom we are about to see in new programming for literally everything, it will be one of the most technical and in demand jobs to ever exist next to healthcare. It would be a shame to be a labor worker in a world who no longer wants your help.
Once again, America is about to get a new workforce.
