Maybe they will be truck "programmers". Seriously, many jobs in IT and Electronics don't require a 4-year degree.

Or they can serve with Captain Kirk somewhere in the galaxy.

I have no doubt we'll figure something out, but we need to figure out a way to keep people from being scared (or less scared) as well.

Someone has to build these trucks. This would be a great opportunity to repatriate some manufacturing jobs. Matt makes a good point - truck programmers or repair technicians could become the "hot" new job.

Q. What Will The People Do When All Jobs Are Done By Robots?

A. Learn how to write programs for all the robots (Also, think of the neat lines of code the sciFi, now just fiction writers, will think up...toasters or refrigerators activated to ???)

The Internet of Things. It's here.


Hi peeps -

I thought about development jobs as well - then you start looking into that and at some point those will be automated as well.

we'll figure it out, I'm sure. The trucking thing will cause some hard change - many of those folks won't have a piviot in them to development jobs in coding or be close enough to work at the truck plant...



Robots will also put lots of recruiters out of work (you don't need to recruit robots).
