With a story I read today that pizza delivery places may start using self-driving cars, my first thought is another job that is taken away from people. In Sci-Fi movies and stories, machines doing all the work means humans have free time, bu the reality is it means 99% of humans work more since they can’t find work and the money crated from those machines pools at the top. They need to tax the shit out of machine automation for social programs.
The guys who won the nobel prize for chemistry designed machines 20x thinner than a human hair!! Still years away from being practical but has potential to be as important as the invention of transistors.
