"Humans Need Not Apply" is a good youtube video on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pq-S557XQU
I'd like to see this discussed industry 1. by industry, 2. by technology/science.
(Technology: Computer vision) could impact (Industries: automated farming, automated transportation, etc).
(Industry: Retail/Fast-Food) could be impacted by (Technologies: Using ipads) resulting in (X number of jobs being replaced). The cost of a worker is Y, the cost of an ipad is Z. Consumer polls should L% of consumers thought ipads at fast-food restaurants were creepy.
Honestly, I don't understand why there are still people at the register at fast-food restaurants (as opposed to i-pads). In some restaurants, this is already the case. Is it just a matter of time? If so, why hasn't it happened yet?
