    Rideshare drivers are not the only ones whose jobs are threatened by automation.

    NewCo Shift, May 12th by Scott Rosenberg

    When artificial intelligence invades the white-collar ranks, the tasks it will eliminate first are most likely to be grunt-work: the cases that newly minted lawyers must look up, the reports that junior accountants must review. These are unlikely to be tasks that anyone will truly regret handing over to a machine-learning algorithm. But Quartz’s Sarah Kessler raises a valuable question about this kind of shift: If we take these entry-level assignments out of the mix, how will entry-level employees get their training?

    It’s a question Deloitte (Big-5 Accounting firm) CEO Cathy Engelbert is also asking: Her firm is built on an “apprenticeship model” that involves junior workers building up their sense of judgment on the job by working their way up through a series of increasingly demanding assignments. Deloitte is rolling out AI systems that review contracts way faster than human employees. But AI can’t do everything, and the company still needs middle-level human analysts to deal with the harder issues the AI can’t resolve. How will companies fill those middle ranks if AI is handling everything below them?

    Maybe AI will help solve that problem, or train people itself. More likely, middle managers will keep finding new kinds of new grunt-work for newbies to cut their teeth on.

    Wonderful! You have hit upon the solution, hooray!

    Get off the Earth.

    Live on the sea floor, which would triple the surface area available today for human life.
    You're so smart. Undersea colonization is also the obvious solution to rising sea levels caused by global warming.

    An even better, if longer term solution ...
    Getting off Earth entirely, by colonizing the moon, Mars and other planets opens up the possibility of infinite space!
    Plus we will finally escape the evil elites that will remain earthbound. A win - win - win.

    Thank you! :D

    So if we really can leave earth (wich i dont think we can)

    Then my question to you is how much money? Who gets to leave?

    Id like to think there is away to get off earth but i dont see much evidence.

    Which of the following possible selection methods do you think is more likely to be used to choose who leaves the earth?
    1. Only those with the drive, money, brains and power to create the means to leave the earth will choose how to select those who bring the skills and qualities which give the greatest chance of success.
    2. Only those who know the real truth of how the elites control the ignorant masses will get to choose who else is free enough of brainwashing and corruption to create the first truly free society in centuries.
    3. Most people (upwards of 98%) will be too frightened to leave and choose to remain in relative safety and comfort on the earth. Those brave enough to accept the challenge will use the traditional methods that have successfully worked throughout human history: excellence, sucking up, cheating, lying, bribery, blackmail, and assassination (character or real).
