I've been crazy, couldn't you tell. I threw stones at the stars, but the whole sky fell.

What is your job?

Some jobs are REALLY hard to automate.

Like Trump's. Developing a robot that can watch Fox News all day is a tough technical challenge.

I'll take Manhattan in a garbage bag. With Latin written on it that says "It's hard to give a shit these days"

There's tests for automating your job already, and a few in places that actually try to do business, not in labs.

If I were to make a guess, I suspect that the automation will semi-popularize, in practice, two recessions from now. It's not really cost saving at this point, and it will only really pick up steam until we are in recovery from a recession. Just like it's very difficult to create a great, high functioning company now because the established companies aren't hurting.

My job is easy to automate, provided everything goes exactly right under perfect clnditions. Since that requires a lot of other things to go exactly right inuding several biologic processes, I'm not overly concerned.

If you deal in retail I dont think its robots you have to worry about but rather consolidation... Then on the other hand consolidation has picked up much of its momentum due to automation.
