21 jobs where robots are already replacing humans.

Wow, many jobs today could be on the way out by 2050, especially the ones in manufacturing.

Not sure what all this fuss is about. Industries have steadily increased their level of mechanization and automatization since the industrial revolution and in particular in the 70s and 80s when robots and computers came along. When I was in high school back in the 90s we visited several factories and they were already fully automated with some guys checking the controls. There is absolutely nothing special about the current development.

An international team has, for the first time, developed a way of combining anonymised data from mobile phones and satellite imagery data to create high resolution maps to measure poverty.

Robocar: World's first driverless electric racing car unveiled at MWC 2017



Quote:
Roborace has unveiled the world's first driverless electric racing car - dubbed Robocar.

The futuristic vehicle was unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and was designed by an automotive futurist who has previously created vehicles for Hollywood sci-fi blockbusters Tron Legacy and Oblivion.

The car can reach speeds of over 320kph, according to its makers.

“Roborace opens a new dimension where motorsport as we know it meets the unstoppable rise of artificial intelligence," said its designer Daniel Simon, Roborace Chief Design Officer.

SPACEX TO SEND PRIVATELY CREWED DRAGON SPACECRAFT BEYOND THE MOON NEXT YEAR

We are excited to announce that SpaceX has been approached to fly two private citizens on a trip around the moon late next year. They have already paid a significant deposit to do a moon mission. Like the Apollo astronauts before them, these individuals will travel into space carrying the hopes and dreams of all humankind, driven by the universal human spirit of exploration. We expect to conduct health and fitness tests, as well as begin initial training later this year. Other flight teams have also expressed strong interest and we expect more to follow. Additional information will be released about the flight teams, contingent upon their approval and confirmation of the health and fitness test results.

Most importantly, we would like to thank NASA, without whom this would not be possible. NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, which provided most of the funding for Dragon 2 development, is a key enabler for this mission. In addition, this will make use of the Falcon Heavy rocket, which was developed with internal SpaceX funding. Falcon Heavy is due to launch its first test flight this summer and, once successful, will be the most powerful vehicle to reach orbit after the Saturn V moon rocket. At 5 million pounds of liftoff thrust, Falcon Heavy is two-thirds the thrust of Saturn V and more than double the thrust of the next largest launch vehicle currently flying.

Later this year, as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, we will launch our Crew Dragon (Dragon Version 2) spacecraft to the International Space Station. This first demonstration mission will be in automatic mode, without people on board. A subsequent mission with crew is expected to fly in the second quarter of 2018. SpaceX is currently contracted to perform an average of four Dragon 2 missions to the ISS per year, three carrying cargo and one carrying crew. By also flying privately crewed missions, which NASA has encouraged, long-term costs to the government decline and more flight reliability history is gained, benefiting both government and private missions.

Once operational Crew Dragon missions are underway for NASA, SpaceX will launch the private mission on a journey to circumnavigate the moon and return to Earth. Lift-off will be from Kennedy Space Center’s historic Pad 39A near Cape Canaveral – the same launch pad used by the Apollo program for its lunar missions. This presents an opportunity for humans to return to deep space for the first time in 45 years and they will travel faster and further into the Solar System than any before them.

Designed from the beginning to carry humans, the Dragon spacecraft already has a long flight heritage. These missions will build upon that heritage, extending it to deep space mission operations, an important milestone as we work towards our ultimate goal of transporting humans to Mars.

Robots taking our mostly low paid jobs that take up most of our time and lives is pretty much the best thing that could happen to us. Imagine a life where you can just wake up and go to a random lake or a mountain and spend the day there if you want and not have to worry about being late to your low paid job that you don't like.

Economy of course would work a little differently, most likely with the basic income system, so robots would be working for us, not just instead of us.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for making life much easier for today's labor force with the use of automation like robotics, however many of these individuals will unfortunately have to rely on these low wage jobs in order to make a decent living nowadays.

Suicidal robot security guard drowns itself by driving into pond

Tuesday 18 July 2017 13:32 BST

A robot has drowned itself by driving into a pool.

The company markets the security robot as better than real guards in part because it never gets bored of what it does. But it appears to have looked to put an end to that work and has driven into a pond.
