The Invasion of the Robotic "Teammates"

Bloomberg: Yes, the Robots Are Coming for Our Jobs, but Just the Boring Ones

Karl von Ellenrieder and his team at Florida Atlantic University’s Dania Beach campus are working on a fleet of intelligent, autonomous boats that could replace many of those divers.

That boring diving job being replaced by a robot pays roughly $85k per year for the person with 10-20 years of experience.

In the near future, at least, robots won't be replacements. They’ll be teammates.

The robots that will be replacing many of these divers won't be replacements? They'll be teammates?

How much are your robotic overlord editors "teammates" paying you to write that?

I am sure I might see a robot income tax in the future. Right? I mean they will need to tax something. :-)

I suspect that a robotic flat tax of 15% could be approved by Congress, assuming that there would also be a 15% tax break for those same robots. It could be a part of a One Step Forward, One Step Back pork barrel bill. ;)
