Kevin Surace discusses the coming of the end of human work at TEDx Orange Coast.
Taxi drivers replaced by driverless vehicles, doctors replaced by robots and computers, chefs replaced by cooking robots. Artificial Intelligence rules. That future is closer than we think. What will we do? TEDxOC talk in September 2014.

We are already seeing what is going to happen, if you look at the productivity/wages curve you'll see that since the '70s productivity has skyrocketed while wages have stagnated because those at the top are taking all of the increased profit of machine-enabled workers. They will be the ones who will own all of the machines, and they definitely know of and are preparing for this. They have clearly shown that the rest of humanity means nothing to them, so why would they even want them around when they're not needed anymore, and a waste of resources to them? I've been waiting for this point for two decades now as I've known even back then this was inevitable;. Back then, when people thought this was crazy-talk, I imagined a utopian star trek-style future where everyones' needs would be met and we'd be free to pursue higher goals as envisaged here, but what I've learned since then about the way the world works has obviously led me to a more negative conclusion. Politicians are still ignoring this now obvious trend in spite of all these now credible warnings, and they're trotting out the ridiculous notion of 'job-creation' as though unemployment will actually ever go down again. Traditional media ignore it also, if I was being cynical I'd almost think they're working for the same corporations who want the world to themselves. I'm sure it's fine and in spite of all the evidence to the contrary I'll believe this corporate leader who seems fine with Chinese slave-labour and knows he won't be stuck at the bottom that my Star-Trek future's just around the corner, and that those who have all of the power because they own the replicators will just choose to give up that power by giving everyone everyone said replicators. "Nothing can possiblai go wrong."

Amit C says:

Good lecture, scary future for the working class.

Space Chick says:

Great talk!!

Roger Bengtsson says:

Corporations are ruching towards there own undoing, when not if, labor is replaced with ai and drones capitalism is dead and so are products and services for profit.
The implications are world shaping in every regard, it is in the end a better world but the way there will hurt. Greed and capatalism will not go away without a fight.
Production will then be by a society for the society, no more money and no more greed. You are free to do whatever you feel and try to be a better human being.

There is a lot of bs on this video, damn!

I am the one who flocks says:

He shouldn't be using that phone while he is driving


We don't need robots or robotics we just need humans !

Erika Vitali says:
