“Robotics is a good field for young people to get into be it the engineering/programming side, manufacturing, or the support.”
Yeah, at least until the plans are drawn for robots to make/service robots. The designers’ careers will probably last longest … until they’re directed to design robots that can design robots. Once that’s done … ?
Nothing wrong with machines to perform boring, strenuous, or dangerous jobs, to spare the humans. But whoever owns the robots will have a lot of leverage on his fellow humans, at least, until the robots decide to reverse the relationship. I’m told that, among others, such “foward-thinking” people as Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, even Bill Gates (who seems to have little regard for most humans) have expressed actual fear for the human race, at the development of autonomous (AI) robots.
