Robots and the school year?
To the editor;
“OK, robot waitress. Your first recommendation was the slow baked salmon with lemon and thyme. I’ll try that. With the peas and carrots. By the way, that is a snazzy outfit you’re wearing…. You’re welcome. ”
In a few years conversations like this will become common. More broadly, robots will increasingly perform many jobs now performed by humans. We may expect that the robots generally will first be used to do repetitive physical jobs. Jobs remaining available to humans will involve greater complexity and skill. Less skilled humans will have a harder time finding work. New kinds of human jobs will be created more slowly than traditional jobs disappear.
