Fast Food Workers, Meet Your Replacement: Flippy the Robot | The Daily Bell

Posted by M. C. on March 7, 2018

No one should have to compete with robots. That is why everyone should strive to do what robots cannot.

Flipping burgers and taking orders are quite easy tasks for robots. We have already seen touchscreens offer an alternative to human cashiers. Now robots are starting to replace the backroom staff.

Flippy still requires some human help, but its learning. Flippy’s boss though says he is already better at his job than most workers.

Robots will continue to do more and more complex tasks, putting more and more current jobs at risk. But some jobs of the future have not even been imagined yet. For the jobs that remain, people might get paid the same for working a quarter the time. Other fun jobs like coaching or singing could become full-time gigs for more and more of the population.

Think about the amazing people that volunteer their time for neglected kids, or abandoned elderly in nursing homes. These people can turn their charity into work, and help a lot more people in the process. Human interaction will carry a premium. Just being a pleasant and joyful human being will be in high demand for employers.

Expect more art and entertainment jobs as humans have more free time, and society has more wealth.

What this does mean though, is that in the modern economy, you cannot simply get a degree and expect that education to serve you for 40 years until retirement.

We are entering the age where you will have to continue to learn and adapt. You will have to be creative, innovative, and inspired to keep up….

Opportunity is the keyword. Society will move on with or without you. Don’t try to hold it back by preserving jobs and labor that is not necessary. That is a fear based response.

Use the technology, the information, and the networks at your fingertips. Create that art, and learn all the skills required to sell it. Focus on the scientific question that lights a fire in your, and learn all the skills required to find funding.

Rejoice for robots, because it means people can follow their passions, instead of running on the treadmill just to keep up with everyday life.

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.

Be seeing you
