  • [Audio] Would jobs held by scientists and engineers be automated? Why or why not?

     

     

    Machines can do almost anything a human can do except feel. Machines will never feel hate, love, "gee I did a good job, I'm going to try to do a better job next time", they will not have such a value system. Machines will not feel, they have no ambition, no sympathy, no love, no caring attitude. But you don't want machines to do that anyway, you just want machines to do a given job. Fill bottles with aromatics or shaving cream or on a production you want machines to build transportation units. They don't have to feel good about it, you don't need feelings in a machine. You need the ability to design machines to accomplish a given task, that's the problem. But to make machines feel things would serve no useful purpose.
