NaturalNews: As much as seventy percent of the human race will become obsolete within just three generations. Why? Because robotics technology is advancing at such a rapid pace that highly-capable humanoid robots with advanced vision recognition and motor coordination systems are going to take over most menial labor jobs.
Supporting this conclusion, a new study just released by Oxford scientists concludes that 47% of all jobs are “at risk” of being replaced by automation systems and robots in just one generation (roughly 20 years). But this is just the opening chapter of the robotics revolution that will rapidly make human labor all but obsolete.
In my estimation, over the next three generations (about 75 years), we will see humanoid robots take over nearly all traditional labor roles in society, including manufacturing, agriculture, construction, firefighting, food service and even community policing. Most of the physical work done today by humans will be turned over to humanoid-shaped robots built much the same way we are: two arms, two legs, two eyes and roughly the size and shape of a 5′ 9″ man.
This, in turn, will make virtually all human laborers obsolete. There will be no more need for people to pick crops, paint houses, clean windows, drive ambulances or even fight wars. Humanoid robots will take over every repetitious, dangerous, disgusting or boring task that humans currently tackle, from cleaning toilets and sweeping floors to driving taxis.
A fascinating new book is coming out on this very topic in just a few days. It’s called Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era by James Barrat. I’ve pre-ordered the book to make sure I get a copy when it’s released on October 1. Obviously, I haven’t read the book yet, but it sounds like it covers what I’m talking about right here: the end of an entire class of human beings as robots rise up and displace them.
Why a future full of robots may not be as rosy as you think
To the typical naive citizen, all this talk about robots taking over menial labor jobs sounds futuristic and exciting. “We can all sit back and relax!” they’ll say. “The robots will do all the work for us!”
Except for just one thing: the only real reason laborer populations are tolerated by the rich and powerful who really control the world is because laborers are needed to run the economy. Someone needs to pick the crops, sweep the floors and do the dry cleaning, in other words. Once capable humanoid robots transition into all the jobs currently carried out by flesh-and-blood humans, there will be no further need for a large segment of the human population.
This, combined with the terrible cost the world population is accruing in terms of environmental destruction and use of dwindling resources, already has world leaders like Bill Gates talking about population control… also called “depopulation” solutions. Global depopulation technologies have been under development for decades, running the gamut from mild to aggressive. Here are the three main types of depopulation technologies that exist right now:
