By 2025, 'sexbots will be commonplace' ? which is just fine, as we'll all be unemployed.


According to a new report that looks at how continuing improvements to artificial intelligence and robotics will impact society, "robotic sex partners will become commonplace" by 2025. A large portion of the report also focuses on how AI and robotics will impact both blue- and white-collar workers, with about 50% of the polled experts stating that robots will displace more human jobs than they create by 2025.

The report, called "AI, Robotics, and the Future of Jobs" and published by Pew Research, is a 66-page monster [PDF]. The report basically consists of a bunch of experts waxing lyrical about what the world will look like in 2025 if robots and AI continue to advance at the same scary pace of the last few years. Almost every expert agreed that robots and AI will no longer be constrained to repetitive tasks on a production line, and will permeate "wide segments of daily life by 2025." The experts are almost perfectly split on whether these everyday robots will be a boon or a menace to society, though ? but more on that at the end of the story.

Oh, funny.

Robot manufacturers are out to make money. Their robots will need to do human jobs better than humans so that they (the robots) get hired, so that the robot manufacturers can sell more robots and make more money. Average people, of course, will lose their jobs to the more highly skilled robots.

People will be forced onto welfare, but as we all know, welfare doesn't pay much. So, manufacturers of goods for people will go out of business because there won't be enough people buying their products. Robotic needs products, on the other hand, will soar, as more and more robots are manufactured.

So, what are we going to do with all those unneeded humans? Do you think that this was the plan for the FEMA camps all along?
