Humans Need Not Apply

This excellent 15 minute video is well worth watching if you have ever wondered how technology is shaping our societal future. Much of what is covered sounds like science fiction, but it’s not. Technology is replacing human jobs at an unprecedented rate – not just industrial revolution style manual labour, but white collar and creative work too. The conclusion is that before long there will be very few jobs which need humans and which can’t be done better and more cheaply by machines.

We are coming to the end of a period of thousands of years where work was necessary for physical survival and where one’s work defined one’s life.
