Darwinism doing its thing. If you’re not intelligent enough to survive in a technologically advanced society, then society doesn’t need you and you die off. You can’t ring up customers and flip burgers for 100’s of years. Smart people will adapt and brainlets will disappear
>>1284687(OP) >Automation is the future.
Automation is the past. More than anything, we live in consumer societies.
The _production_ of goods was automated long ago, displacing millions of manual labor jobs worldwide.
>>1284687(OP) >So millions of people displaced with no jobs. They are hungry and homeless. What do you think will happen?
Anarcho-Primitivist revolution. >Automation is the future. Soon your job will be taken. We need UBI
No. Anarcho-Primitivist revolution.
I dislike the idea of shoplifting, but if the machine im using cant spot the 40 rolls of toilette paper im holding and remind me I need to scan it, then maybe they should invest in a better machine?
I remember when they had a cashier kiosk in Jack in the Box. I could customize my order, pay right there and pick up the food with no errors in the order every time. The AI was a better cashier than a human and far more efficient.
They have to design a different kind of self-checkout machine for black neighborhoods. Maybe something where the customer steps into a cage.Then they have to place everything they're buying in a container that has a scale that gets the total weight of the items. Their body is scanned so they're not hiding anything under their clothes. Then they scan each item by placing them in a container that scans and weighs each item and adds up the weights so it matches with the whole. And then after they've made the payment the cage will unlock and they will be able to exit with the goods they've bought.

UBI will happen inevitably, but if you want to get to a higher living standard than average, you'll have to invest in automation.
>>1284687(OP) >tiny little one bag scale thing replaces convery belt with spinning 6 bag thing
the dumbest shit they could have ever made. Its like going from living in a mcmansion to living in a "tinyhome" whenever Im checking out at the shart mart now.
Also they needlessly keep shoving cameras in my face and its pissing me off

>>1284687(OP) >Within 20 (twenty) years. Automation and machines will take millions of jobs, starting with minimum wage.
Sounds bad. I guess the only thing we can do is bring in an unlimited amount of low skilled labor.
>>1284687(OP) > Automation and machines will take millions of jobs, starting with minimum wage.
While I'm not arguing against this point it also effects higher wage jobs too. Stock brokers have pretty much been completely automated and what's the point with having news anchors anymore when an AI program can do the same job. Even trade jobs aren't safe either, there are brick laying robots/electrician robots that can do the job faster and a lot of times better plus many more jobs automation has creeped into that people think are safe jobs from automation.
Don't expect some Baby Boomers in Washington to come up with answers to this problem that is right around the corner. A lot of them can't even work a computer and all of them repeat the same Baby Boomer mantra that every person from that generation repeats of "I'm going to be dead soon, let younger generations deal with it".
These machines are super dumb anon. When I was a poverty boy I used to scan one of those cheapass tinos burritos and throw 5 in the bag. Wouldn't catch it 99% of the time and not sure if the attendants just pitied me or didn't see.
starting with minimum wage *laughs in realistic* it will start with middle management and data entry minimum wage will get hit next because of unions in other sectors but its harder to automate a burger flipper than your entire office
I’ve thought about this at length over the last year or so. Once the AI machines can repair themselves I can’t think of a single job that wont be automated away and once the machines start looking like us we’ll be useless eaters to the powers that be so they’ll probably just wipe us out after they merge with machines to live forever.
The funnier part? Is that robots wont take the majority of the jobs. You wont put a half million dollar robot to replace a lowly paid spic mopping the floor. But you will suscribe to accountant AI, number cruncher AI, notary AI and a lot of white collar jobs for cheapass subscription based software instead of paying good money to an employee.
White collar joggers are cocky right now thinking only the brainlet blue collar workers wil get replaced, but the truth is that with ai and smartcontracts is easier and cheaper to replace the white than the blue collar jobs. And they will get replaced sooner than the spic mopping the floor, since the spic-o-matic 3000 robot will be out of reach for most small companies, but not the google AI sub,
>>1284687(OP) >it's going to take even more blood and pure agony for this rat race world to finally implement an abundant policy >but they are so batshit insane things will need to get so unbearably bad that, so bad, that the UBI may not even work correctly before they finally shit it out
Reminder humans will NEVER EVER get past this so called "great filter" because no alien race wants to do any sort of uplifting or business with such a disgusting group of batshit backwards ratpeople, unless it has to do with them killing each other some more by giving them tools and gadgets that'll be their own demise
Boomers/Bootstrappers don't realize this. There's no shortage of people who need/want to work. Of course there's a percentage of unemployed people who are lazy, but even entry-level jobs are slightly competitive for a lot of people to get into now. I saw a warehouse job on indeed that involved stacking boxes on a skid, and they wanted a year experience for it. Not only automation, but high immigration causes there to be competition where the boomers never had any. Boomers had much more spending power, less inflation, more affordable everything. But they are so out of touch with reality and are seemingly blind to the world around them, that they blame their descendants for their "shortcomings". And any mention of a UBI gets you called a commie by cuckservative retards here in Canada who are going to vote for O'toole, the boomer gibs party.
>>1284687(OP) >It takes at least 2.5 of them to be able to produce the same customer throughput as a manned checkout, the customers fuck about scanning and after scanning have to get their money etc out. >They take twice as long to go through; on a manned checkout customer can fuck about with money, "loyalty" cards etc while trained staff quickly scan the groceries faster than they ever could, reducing the individuals checkout time. >One almost always needs staff assistance anyway, alcohol and cigarettes requires them to ID check, if you want specific change (ie five 1$ coins) they have to change it for you because the dumb machine can't be told to do it, any issue with the weigh checker (which there is always) requires staff intervention. >Theft is easy, buy apples, pay for onions. Results in higher losses so prices throughout the store go up to compensate. >Fucking stupid thing tells you shit you know, and when in the middle of already doing it, like a cunt.
I fucking hate those machines.
Nothing happens. The problem with Automation is that owners want to charge more for the same products despite their costs dropping. I am hounding vendors almost daily for pulling this shit with automation and I threaten to buy the same equipment they have to break them. I know these fucks start making such huge margins that most people would shit themselves for.
Automation should be dropping costs drastically yet it isn't. People are losing their jobs and they also can't afford these products.
There are cartels forming with automation and how long they can keep up this nonsense of record profits, I don't know. But it's only a matter of time before they break when competitors start dropping prices thanks to Automation and the race to the bottom begins.
Self checkout exist because faggot boomers that never had it hard and have 250k or more in the bank plus social security checks rolling in that no one else will see want to clog up the kids in high school that scan so much more per hour than Gladis the cripple and Frank the rapist could ever imagine. Automation is a result of bitch ass Boomers.
>>1284687(OP) >We need UBI
no. you need to die.
i can check myself out in half the time that a cashier can. if everyone wasn't so goddamned lazy i would just get in line and happily support cashiers.
you are going to work and there is no way to get out of it. make the best of it and keep yourself employed. the alternative is to be a shit employee until you're no longer needed.
So far even in US with US salaries it's not really profitable to replace alive employee. Some large businesses tried, but in the end even Amazon managed to reach only a very small degree of it. It's still too soon.
Some of us like these since we don't have to get in line behind some shitheads paying by check with expired coupons who also feel compelled to tell the cashier their life's story knowing store policy demands the cashier won't tell them to STFU, ok?
You are superfluous bodies. When the Elite replace you with an AI, they don’t want you to be spoon-fed with UBI. They want you to fucking die, so their offspring can enjoy the natural resources that you would have consumed.
America needs to mass deport and defund generational Welfare. We need to deal with population numbers first. Deporting and defunding will mean less crime. Rent and food prices will go down, as there is less demand and less government paying for it for people who will never work. We need to deal in more American made. The government needs to break up businesses that never should have grown as huge. And to tax them. If they don’t like it, they can move to China and lose all American sales. We need to do everything possible to deglobalize and dismantle oligarchy power.
Not a single politician is willing to do ANY of these things.
I would rather machines take the jobs instead of immigrants from the third world who will make society worse. I don't have to worry about a machine popping out a bunch of kids or stinking the place up.
ubi is the only thing that can ensure a large scale job destroying automation scenario is able to come to fruition. Automation cant happen if the people are unable to afford the products produced by it. Ubi is basically a subsidy for mass automation that couldnt otherwise happen without it. A confiscation of our own wealth to keep an unsustainable force afloat. The absence of ubi = mutual growth for us through increased wages and lower hours worked due to increased productivity. Anyone who buys into the ubi cliche is a literal retard.
