  • Car manufacturers have already handed over critical vehicle assembly functions to robots, either partially or completely.
  • The warehousing industry has fully transitioned to automated warehouses, with automated guided vehicles being used for storage and retrieval of products. Humans are only there to monitor and supervise the operation.
  • The food industry already utilizes the efficiency of AI to sort and grade harvested fruits and vegetables, ensuring that customers end up with only the finest produce.

“Think about it: Corporate automation is expected to wipe out 40% of jobs in the next 15 years and leave half of us economically non-competitive against AI. Yet prices will continue to rise, while the corporatocracy will continue to devalue our money and destroy purchasing power by printing zero-value-backed digital currency. And the rich are going to continue to offshore their wealth like never before.”

This image shows a portrait of a simulated middle-aged white woman against a black background. The scene is refracted in different ways by a fragmented glass grid. This grid is a visual metaphor for the way that artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies can be used to simulate and reflect the human experience in unexpected ways. A distorted neural network diagram is overlaid, familiarising the viewer with the formal architecture of AI systems.
