In the New York Times recently writer Claire Cain Miller presents a thought-provoking summary of “Evidence That Robots Are Winning the Race for American Jobs“.
This isn’t science fiction. It’s happening already. It isn’t enough to bring back some jobs that won’t stand up for very long against automation. More must be done to prepare — and retrain when needed — American workers for the future. More must be done to prepare America’s economy to support it’s people in the future.
Meanwhile, how will robots fit in? Isaac Asimov, one of my favorite science fiction writers, had a lot to say about that. If you want to read some other short stories about robots, you might also enjoy mine.
