We discuss the possibility that robots, including both hardware and software technologies, with access to huge data-stores, can now undercut humans at most of the jobs people rely on. We discuss the recent book The Rise of the Robots by Martin Ford, and look at some video clips of him talking on YouTube, and of some of the technologies in action. We also look at closely related work by Andrew McAfee (MIT). This will lead into a discussion of Where is this all going?
