1. Humans Need Not Apply

    A colleague sent me this video yesterday. Probably the most sober dip into the future of technology I’ve seen yet. Perhaps I am a minority, but I do see rising inequality and the difficulty of our current economic moment as heavily impacted and sustained by the rapid pace of technological advancement (and subsequently the value that technology creates being consolidated in the hands of very few).

    All of this is a good thing… if our social and political development can match the pace of our technological development. If humans are no longer needed, then the value generated by their robotic counterparts must be distributed in new ways. For starters, is it time to end the 40 hour work week? Will we need regulation to restructure large companies? Can capitalism evolve to provide in the brave new world?
