Highly Recommend This Piece From Frontline..

Very disturbing! especially the segment towards the end on how Artificial Intelligence is devastating middle class manufacturing union and non-union workers in the Rust Belt States.Trump keeps lying about the fact that manufacturing jobs are being shipped offshore. Yep maybe at one time, but now its all about Automation and A.I.

On a positive note.. A.I. will have a tremendous effect on our ability to cure devastating diseases.. The part on Breast Cancer was eye-opening.

In The Age of A.I..

2. Like the Industrial Revolution and the Internet Revolution

AI is also revolutionizing life as we know it. Itís another world game changer and itís here to stay whether we like it or not.

Itíll be gut wrenching but very interesting to see how it changes life.

Sooner or later theyíre going to have to deal with human beings as consumers. If you donít have a job whoís going to buy anything? Corporations arenít even thinking about that. Theyíre painting themselves into a corner.

If people donít have jobs it wonít take long for tax revenues to shrink and for consumers to stop consuming. What then? What will the government do?
