I don’t know if you remember, but I remember a programme called Tomorrows’ World here in the UK. It said there would be flying cars (like in Back to the Future, Fifth Element) by the year 2010. I was looking forward to it actually. They also mentioned other things like the paperless office and the paperless office. When I heard about robots replacing ALL humans jobs; I got concerned. I wondered even then at 13 or 14 I think I was, if robots replaced our jobs, what would be left for us Humans to do. Then when I was a bit older, the excellent entertainment ‘Terminator’ films came out: this was possibly another way that things could go with technology we have produced. Now in London, UK, a council has £12,000 installing a virtual hologram receptionist at one of its’ offices. The reason they gave, is because it was cheaper then employing a human.
I am all for using technology to assist with our daily lives. It is when it impacts on us humans that I get concerned: what becomes of us humans?
