Wired Article: “Better Than Human” by Kevin Kelly

Great summary of the robotic transformation happening now by Kevin Kelly:

“Two hundred years ago, 70 percent of American workers lived on the farm. Today automation has eliminated all but 1 percent of their jobs, replacing them (and their work animals) with machines. But the displaced workers did not sit idle. Instead, automation created hundreds of millions of jobs in entirely new fields.”

“It may be hard to believe, but before the end of this century, 70 percent of today’s occupations will likewise be replaced by automation.”
