Robots Break New Ground in Construction Industry

SAN FRANCISCO — As a teenager working for his dad’s construction business, Noah Ready-Campbell dreamed that robots could take over the dirty, tedious parts of his job, such as digging and leveling soil for building projects.

Now the former Google engineer is turning that dream into a reality with Built Robotics, a startup that’s developing technology to allow bulldozers, excavators and other construction vehicles to operate themselves.

“The idea behind Built Robotics is to use automation technology make construction safer, faster and cheaper,” said Ready-Campbell, standing in a dirt lot where a small bulldozer moved mounds of earth without a human operator.

Although I give Campbell an A+ for his ingenuity, on the other hand, when I consider inventions and technology like this,  how many people it is going to put out of a job, I think it is counter productive.

Thanks to or no thanks, robots have taken over a great deal of the jobs that used to be done by human-beings. If this trend continues, as I expect it will, in the future, the robot world will have completely dominated the work force in the world, and the already stagnant/wilted bodies and brains of the human race will completely dry up. Not to mention the unemployment situation.

Robots could replace nearly a third of the U.S. workforce by 2030 …

Nov 30, 2017 – Over the next 13 years, the rising tide of automation will force as many as 70 million workers in the United States to find another way to make money, a new study from the global consultancy McKinsey predicts. That means nearly a third of the American workforce could face the need to pick up new skills or …

To me, that is not progress. What it amounts to is the rich getting richer by eliminating the human-beings from the work force and eliminating 1,00,000’s of jobs
I watched the interview awhile back 60 Minutes Charlie Rose  had with a robot and got chills up and down my spine.  Anyone that is not affected the same way; better wake up and smell the unemployment line.
Progress should be considered finding a cure for cancer, coming up with an answer to the dysfunctionality in the world, coming up with a solution to end world hunger, a way to rid the world of all the war-mongers or how to put toothpaste back in a tube.  Inventing way to eventually put 1,000’s possibly 1,000.000’s of people out of work is not progress, it is regress.

Some people may scoff at this possibility, BUTT they also laughed at man going to the moon.
It is only a matter of time before mankind (in PC Canada – people kind) that the human race is going to destroy itself in one way or another. They are working very hard to accomplish that goal!!
I guess I am not alone in my way of thinking.
