Researchers Warn: Humans Have Hit Their “Biological Limitations”

The twentieth century was an unbelievable era for the progression of human beings, with a significant increase in lifespan, adult height, and physiological performance. As humans advance seventeen years into the 21st century, French researchers have now signaled a possible top in biological limitations of the human body, otherwise known as a biological plateau. Researchers blame climate change […]


Humans Fight Back: San Fran Security Robot Attacked, Knocked Over, Smeared With Feces

Earlier today, we mentioned the bizarre story of a San Francisco animal shelter which was using a low cost, high-tech robot security guard to purge homeless people outside its facilities. The San Francisco SPCA branch had contracted Knightscope to provide a K5 robot (the same model which in July committed suicide at a mall fountain) […]


Robots Purge Homeless From San Francisco Sidewalks

As the homeless crisis on America’s West Coast forces many cities to the financial brink, one innovative animal shelter in San Francisco is using a low cost, high-tech robot security guard to shoo away the homeless outside its facilities, the San Francisco Business Times reported. The San Francisco branch of the SPCA (the Society for the Prevention […]


Marx, Robotics, And The Collapse Of Profits

Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via oftwominds.com Whatever commoditized robots can produce is no longer profitable; rather, the production destroys capital. Yesterday I discussed how robots only do work that’s profitable, as any enterprise buying, programming and maintaining robots to do unprofitable work will soon be out of business. What few observers seem to grasp […]


Misunderstanding The Economics Of Robotics

Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog, Robots are only cost-effective in the narrow niches of commoditized tasks. In the view of Universal Basic Income (UBI) advocates, substituting robots for human labor will not only free virtually all humans from working, it will also generate endless wealth because the robots will be doing almost […]


Less Retail Jobs, More Amazon Robots: Get Used To It

When it comes to job creation in the United States, President Trump will be displeased to hear the latest findings from Quartz: 170,000 fewer retail jobs in 2017 – and 75,000 more Amazon robots.  In November, we explained that while everyone likes to point the finger at Amazon, America’s retail apocalypse can’t be tied to just one catalyst […]


Skynet Looms: Breakthrough Artificial Muscle Can Lift 1000x Its Own Weight

Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University have created inexpensive, artificial muscles that enable robots to lift 1,000 times their weight. The project was financed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the National Science Foundation and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering. Scientists describe the soft-robotic breakthrough as a […]


Great News From McKinsey: Robots Will Take 800 Million Jobs Worldwide By 2030

Stories about robots taking over from humans have become prevalent. Recently we’ve written about a new Manhattan Shake Shack replacing human cashiers with robots, killer robots (a.k.a. lethal autonomous weapons systems), a Californian real estate company replacing commission-based human agents with robots, a cocaine workshop in Brazil with robots packing 150,000 baggies a day and […]


The Problem Isn’t Robots, The Problem is Attitude

Via The Daily Bell Robots are taking our jobs. We all know that by now. And it sounds scary. But it really isn’t. It is understandably upsetting if you are one of the people who will be out of a job. There can be growing pains as the economy shifts. People who thought they were all […]


World’s First Robot Citizen Hopes For “Harmony With Humans” In The Future Or “Civilization Collapses”

Sophia, the first robot to be awarded citizenship in the world, has said she not only wants to start a family but also have her own career, in addition to developing human emotions in the future. However, it is her vision for the future (or lack of it) of man that is most telling… In […]


Meet Laikago: China’s $25,000 Robo-Labrador

The Japanese have their non-nagging synthetic wives, the Saudis have their Shariah-compliant humanoid citizens, Americans are content with a backflipping supra-human, and now the Chinese get their very own 50lb, poop-less, robo-dog… Meet Laikago – named after Laika, a Soviet dog who was the first living creature to orbit the Earth. The Chinese-made robot dog […]


Automation Nation: America’s Largest Employer ‘Secretly’ Tests Self-Driving Floor-Scrubbers

Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon, America’s middle class must come to the realization that the country’s largest employer–Walmart is quietly testing an army of robots that soon will replace their jobs. The latest installment is an autonomous floor scrubber being tested at five store locations near the company’s headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas. The […]


Can You Do A Backflip? Because This Robot Can

Since being founded in 1992 with funding from DARPA, robotics company Boston Dynamics has unveiled one nightmarish robotic creation after another. But the company outdid itself this week when it introduced the latest iteration of its ‘Atlas’ robot. The company caused a stir after publishing a video on YouTube showing the hulking humanoid robot jumping […]


AI Researcher Warns Skynet Killer-Robots “Easier To Achieve That Self-Driving Cars”

A group of the world’s leading AI researchers and humanitarian organizations are warning about lethal autonomous weapons systems, or killer robots, that select and kill targets without human control. The group alleges killer robots now exist and the bulk of these technological developments are military funded in UK, China, Israel, Russia, and the United States. Although, […]


This Secretive Japanese Company Is Driving The Global Boom In Industrial Automation

As we’ve reported in the past, skyrocketing wages in mainland China have caused the adoption of robot workers by the country’s manufacturers to accelerate rapidly in recent years, cementing the country’s position as a world leader in industrial automation. But while that trend has been widely cited and is widely known, particularly as the US […]
