What if robots started to replace people in all the jobs that people do? What if the government told all employers to use a robot to perform all the work? What if the government told all car companies to have a robot repair all the cars on site, instead of having people do it? What if all students took a robotic class and never had to write another line of code ever again? What if the government told all large corporations to have robotic employees, but no humans would be allowed to operate those robots?

Would that make life better? I would think so. Why wouldn’t it, considering all the tax dollars that these corporations are spending? Also consider that the government might tell all big companies to hire robotic workers, as well, and everyone would then be happier, as well as their employees.

Of course, this is just a thought. We haven’t quite gotten there yet, but it makes sense to me. We need to begin thinking in terms of the future, before we do anything. Too often we look at current trends and events and decide what we want from our future. This is not helpful, as we don’t always know where we are going.

The question “what if robots started to replace people?” is a difficult one, but one that is definitely worth asking. Artificial intelligence has come a long way already, but what if it went even further? What if all your information was stored electronically, so that no matter what you did, what you recorded, everything was always right there at your fingertips. What if that was all there was to know, and all that was being done were you trying to figure out what that meant for you?

That’s a scary thought, isn’t it? But think about all of the things humans have been able to accomplish with technology in the past. It’s not farfetched to think that within the next couple decades artificial intelligence would be so advanced that it would be able to beat every human in chess, it just may be close enough that it would have the ability to hand deliver your lunch to you on a silver platter.

In the future we might be able to download our thoughts and feelings directly into another computer. This would allow us to communicate with others instantaneously, without having to utter a single word. We would have access to nearly every electronic item on the face of the earth, and we would not have to carry anything. Pretty soon we would have run pretty much everything on a chip, and that chip might as well be programmed to give us instructions on how to accomplish everything we set out to do.

And then what if the government asked us to post some kind of information on the Internet about Artificial Intelligent Computer Software programs? What if we told them that these new super-intelligent computers would be able to make decisions for us? Would you be willing to pay for them? If you were born rich and experienced no struggle in life, would you be willing to pay for artificially intelligent robotic systems to help you accomplish things in your lifetime? I bet if you were asked that question you would say “of course I’ll pay for it”.

In the future, what if robots started to think and decide for themselves. They would start shopping for their items independently of humans, and that shopping spree could be extended indefinitely. They would take care of all of your bills for you, even the ones you forgot to save for. They would keep track of your spending habits, and they would help you invest your money, so when it time to take out the mortgage or retirement funds, they would know exactly what needs to be done. As you can see there are many exciting and wonderful things that could happen in the future, and we just may need to start exploring them right now.
