All too often we see people saying that machine is taking peoples jobs. From assembly line automatons yesterday, to self-checkout systems today.
Examples in history are not hard to find if we take a closer look. The industrial age had them. The digital age has them. Heck, even the stone age had them when people began using tools to kill ever larger animals for food, while the people who didn’t adapt themselves to the new technology were still stuck snacking on small sized rodents.
But, you bet your bottom that someone likely said in caveman speak ‘what is Rodi the rodent catcher going to do, now that we eat Mammoth all day!’
Over the eons automation has always served for the most part our best interest.
