    According to Professor Walsh at the University of New South Wales, artificial intelligence (AI) is likely to feature heavily in the future of warfare. Furthermore, the issue is no longer whether to use AI, but how much autonomy to give it - dubbed the 'Terminator conundrum'.

    Just a thought , As a ex fireman and office site manager ( caretaker ) so as a manual worker with all this AI talk what will humans be employed to do. Office work will be out the window, so will lower management, manual work will be non existent a machine can do the work, so can someone explain what will humans be able to do? And how will humans be able to earn a living if most if not all manual and lower management work is done by robotics where will the cash to sustain a living wage come from???

    I don't know, but that's an interesting question. I can't imagine that every job would be replaced - that would not be desirable - but there are many that could be. Maybe a lot of humans would be freed up to pursue hobbies? If professions such as doctors could be done using AI then costs could end up being a lot cheaper in future, so humans potentially wouldn't need to earn much to live well.

    I do not believe that as corporations are greedy and only would want to pay their investors. Government would have to find other tax streams because there wouldn't be many working people, Just think of the Initiational investment to produce and design these robots and where would the Government get the Billions to support out of work workers and professional and their families.

    From THE LINKY I posted above:


    One interesting idea is to encourage people to be active participants rather than idle bystanders by making them "troubleshooters".
