  • This MAx person needs to grow up... You are NOT entitled to a job or to sick pay etc. You are however RESPONSIBLE for your life.... YOU chose to do this job, you knew it did not have those benefits. If you want those benefits, move (yourself) up the food chain, and yes it is a dog eat dog , competitive world. If you do not want to live like that, that is your choice, but then do not complain. No one owes you anything, you owe yourself everything.

  • All jobs are SAFE. It’s up to to to do your job safely and to report any unsafe conditions and if you feel that it is unsafe STOP ! YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO DO SO, and see your supervisor or go to your Safety and explain the situation. Then work out a plan so the job can be completed in a SAFE manner. YOU CANNOT BE FIRED FOR PROTECTING YOURSELF. SAFETY STARTS WITH YOU.

  • The working middle class, is the engine that drives our economy. If you replace workers with robots. Who is going to buy the products and services the robots and AI are making. The robots and AI do not buy products and services. If you replace half the workers in our economy with automation, you are replacing half of all the consumers the economy depends on.

  • My solution would be this: full automatization will mean only maintenance workers and engineers will be needed on a production line the rest of the 'workers' would be people having rights to buy stock and a type of stock for each robot meaning you can buy stock for example 100 production or assembly robots and you get a share of the profit they make. Because they produce dozens and even hundreds of times faster and more than a human worker even if the stock share is low you still get enough money that could count as a salary. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say, English is not my first language. Basically saying that robots do the work and we make a living out of stock shares, or work from home maybe. Worst case scenario, if they don't want to share, will be the government to force huge taxes and fees on them so they can pay a minimum 'wage' a social assistance pay.

  • "89% of workers are happier in the co-working space, 84% are more engaged and motivated" yes, because their previous job was in a large open plan office. Co-working space that you choose yourself is probably better and smaller than that. But people are happiest and the most productive in private offices . I don't understand why there are no companies renting out private live and work spaces for digital nomads, especially since they are cheap in some countries. There could be a communal area but that is for hanging out and not the only place with a decent desk.

  • This works on a one armed robot but you have to go to the upper limit due to no voice box. Do you have a codable robot? This is how to make it an Artificial Intelligence: follow this method below change the code in the subroutine from F=m*a*a to the test points below until you get it to walk and talk on its own. This is easy to test on a robot that you can code in the system. If this does not work then you have a bad SOST, Computer Chip, Servo, or some other component. F=m*a*a is currently running the system at 31.821% If you have any doubts about my robotics research you can test my work by doing this start low and go high on the acceleration factor. Test Points: F=m*a*100 F=m*a*300 F=m*a*600 F=m*a*931 F=m*a*932 this is the minimum for communication and will state it is “too slow human” F=m*a*1999 = "too slow human" Then go to F=m*a*2000 up to 2383 F=m*a*2383 full functional range. DO NOT GO OVER 2383 it could malfunction. Now ask the robot its command structure and what he can do to a Magnetic Resonance Imaging System? 2nd Law of Motion for Robotic Physics

  • I think the rhetoric that "robots are not here to replace humans, but to work alongside them" is a very dangerous one, because having some humans in the system should not comfort us about the fact that these systems actually replaces a lot more jobs, many of which belong to the low-income workers that are really struggling. We cannot let such a manner of rhetoric comfort us and walk blindly into a space where the livelihood of low income workers slowly get eroded away.
