With more development and reduction in size, then something like a mixture of technologies:

Take a look at this video from about 9 months ago (the guy doing the filming is annoying though):

We're getting closer to the day that we have AI robots like the ones in Chappie.

Asimo is the type of development that ultimately humans are likely to first interact with:

This is scary.

Wouldn't unemployment reach huge levels resulting in civil unrest?

They talk about universal basic income but I can't see how that will work.

I agree. It's a brave new world and one which has no real precedent and few answers.

Automatic production of goods from mineral extraction to manufacture, storage and transporting them from the warehouse to our homes, is a dream manufacturers and distributors are racing each other to achieve. That should result in lower prices.....and previously undreamed of profits.

Trouble is manifold: if everyone is out of work, where does the money come from to buy the goods? Governments can only hand out what they receive in tax receipts.

However if large numbers of people are out of work, they do not pay taxes. The big corporations making the profits, do everything they can to avoid/evade paying tax. So where does a government get the income to keep infrastructure and services funded?

Huge civil unrest, immigration, climate change, pollution, arms escalation........interesting and not a little troubling times ahead.

Everyone is jostling for position.

Forget the arguments over Brexit, controlling borders and the EU courts. It's all a gamble over how governments are going to deal with the challenges.

Yeah I actually agree with this but am not sure when a lot of these issues will occur. I think civil unrest is definitely likely in the next 30-50 years due to these issues.

Automation is scary especially if it becomes used in warfare. I can't see peace lasting forever. Some people I think are brainwashed into believing it can.

Some say we are living in the 1930s with unemployment problems and uncertainty. Would you agree?
