    Stephen Hawking: Automation and AI is going to decimate middle class jobs

    Rob Price

    Artificial intelligence and increasing automation is going to decimate middle class jobs, worsening inequality and risking significant political upheaval, Stephen Hawking has warned.

    In a column in The Guardian, the world-famous physicist wrote that "the automation of factories has already decimated jobs in traditional manufacturing, and the rise of artificial intelligence is likely to extend this job destruction deep into the middle classes, with only the most caring, creative or supervisory roles remaining."
    He adds his voice to a growing chorus of experts concerned about the effects that technology will have on workforce in the coming years and decades. The fear is that while artificial intelligence will bring radical increases in efficiency in industry, for ordinary people this will translate into unemployment and uncertainty, as their human jobs are replaced by machines.


    Technology has already gutted many traditional manufacturing and working class jobs — but now it may be poised to wreak similar havoc with the middle classes.
    A report put out in February 2016 by Citibank in partnership with the University of Oxford predicted that 47% of US jobs are at risk of automation. In the UK, 35% are. In China, it's a whopping 77% — while across the OECD it's an average of 57%.

    No union has ever successfully fought automation. The death of unions occurred when nothing was done about PATCO. That's why the conservatives love Reagan

    they interviewed some white trump voters in pa. they were shockingly uneducated and stupid.
    out of work hillbillies and rednecks. i never realized that we had so many of them.
    their grandfather worked in the steel mill, their father worked in the steel mill.
    now the steel mill is shut down and they are unemployed and mad.

    i worked om mainframe computers. now they use servers and cloud storage.
    should i be mad at the world because they don’t use mainframes anymore ?
