When are we going to see the first permanently unemployed due to automation?

If someone can run a billion copies of a human brain on a server farm, what exactly can you do that they can't?
Whats the point of robots making our food, tech, clothes, furniture etc building houses, roads etc. If no one can buy these products because they dont have jobs? Im not worried in the slightest about future unemployment
>When are we going to see the first permanently unemployed due to automation?
Never, there are always too many jobs, hence the need for mass migration and infinite growth.

Explain my conclusions to an executive and to the people who work for me on what to do next and how.
Best case scenario is a post-scarcity future envisaged by Marx - no one will need to work because our economy is so productive at making material goods. Almost every single industry will be nationalised and the products will be distributed to whoever wants them. In a sense, automation will liberate us from having to work.

Worst case (and much more likely) is a dystopian capitalist hellscale ala Elysium.

are electrons particles or not? How do electrons move through a wire from a battery and power a light bulb if they exist as probability distributions around atoms?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
here are wiki links for both models respectively
I'm starting to lean to /perpetual/ imbalance of dipoles allowing for differential states to exist.
We're probably looking at different /field/ arrangements giving interlace property's but not with using new building blocks.

>How do electrons move through a wire from a battery and power a light bulb
I'll start with normal generation using copper and magnets.
Basically run magnets across copper. This just milks the copper for free electrons.
As for battery, it's atomic. Yes atomic energy. But in the from of a chemical reaction :(
It's typically two different metals and some sort of acidic cation medium. (shits got ions yo!)
Those react causing an knock on till it just domino the circuit.

And huhh. I have no idea why free electron model has lasted this long.
It should be a orbital jump giving sub energy run on? No..

You better have a lead on this OP.
They “move” like this.

A voltage source has 2 poles. Positive pole, negative pole.
At the positive pole there are atoms with lack of electrons.
At the negative pole there are atoms with excess electrons.
When we connect the two poles with copper wire (copper atoms), then
at the positive pole electrons from the copper atoms will move to the atoms toward the positive pole.
When an electron moves from one atom to an other atom,
then there will be lack of electrons in that atom where it was moved from.
There will be a hole in that atom.
Now an other electron can come fill that hole from a surrounding atom.

When we want to know the exact location of an electron at the moment (which is impossible) then we use the probability distributions.
Yes. An elementary particle.

They don't exist as probability distributions if the wave function collapses and they act as particles. Refer to this post >>10826804

All these answers. Are fools acting wise.

where's the evidence for not free will? checkmate atheist
>Who's stopping me from doing what I want? Who's stopping me from wanting what I want?

“"A man can do as he wills, but not will as he wills."
Those are examples of will. Can you prove it is free?
lol i thought for a moment you think that we have free will but you're just trolling
The fact that you want that paticular thing and not anything else is stopping you. And even if you changed opinions as many times as you want it would still be the consequence of particles interaction according to the laws of nature (physics). You have zero control of how particles (you, your brain, body and everything around you) are going to interact therefore have no free will. Your thoughts are 'predetermined' moments before you do them. If we had insight into all the variables involved in the process we could predict our next moves.

Hi /sci, I have a serious question and could use some help.

So a friend and myself started a company where we were making deep-sea robots, but we lost funding and the company looks like it's going to go under.

Knowing this possibility, I applied to a grad program from my alma mater but it wasn't really a great program or one I'm particularly interested in doing. I'm applying to jobs now, but I really want to keep working on sea robotics.

I found a different lab at another university which really interests me, and I want to go to it, but I didn't apply to the school. Can I just email people in the lab and try to get a job? Can they help me get late admission into the school? What are my options if I wanted to pursue this?

Thanks /sci

> I should also note I went to a top public school and graduated with two degrees, one in CS and EE, which I did in 3.5 years, though my gpa is terrible (2.94), mostly because I always took a full course load and the hardest classes I could (I liked the stress). So I'm an interesting student but not necessarily a top student.

You attempted to make a deep sea robotics manufacturer company.. Without any qualifications?
There's ambition but that was doomed to fail. If you've got gear left over, I suggest greasing the better schools admission board with scrap electronics.

>anecdotal claims devalue a whole scientific field

You know, I also do not believe in chemistry anymore. This one time I was following the instructions for prepping a substance and it didn't yield the expected molecule. Surely this isn't because I made a mistake (like your top tier psychs), or because one of the educts gone bad (like your 5 guys faking it). Must be the whole fucking chemistry just not working the way it should. That's it.

The unified equation is not a set of equations. It is one equation. Energy / space = The Universe

I dont think you get this. It has already been simulated and proven. Happened around 6 months ago. You could 1 to 1 reproduce all reality using the equation. You can fucking see it happen on computer monitor. The particles bubbling up, creating fields etc...

A fractal, by definition, has a zero emergence score because its self-similarity prevents alterations to its composition.

Is this a useful definition? Note that if you claim that it is not, you have a view of utility that must be unpacked for others to agree with your notions of usefulness.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
What if it is a fractal of a self contained universe?
Why do you guys always obsess over these stupid fucking fractals?
If you're talking about the "black holes are their own universes" model then even then there is no emergence, no. Physics is only slightly altered on each successive layer of black hole (AFAIK) and does not meaningfully change its basic composition. So still zero emergence score.
Fractals fall under the "math" part of "Science & Math." Though, they're increasingly falling under the science part as well. In any case, when a mathematician talks about fractals they're not just speaking about things as trivial as the Sierpinski triangle. There is a world of mathematics behind it and a lot to study.

Point of the OP definition is to exclude fractals from the discussion of emergence though.
There is a better way to ride recursive function then what most people imagine as fractal.
I don't see any issue. It's essentially no difference therefore no place.
If you've see my ramblings it's fitting.
>have a view of utility that must be unpacked for others to agree with your notions of usefulness.
Yeah, good luck.

How to terraform Moon with existed technologies with potential colonization asap?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
The moon has way to small of a gravitational pull to hold a proper atmosphere, and should be used as a vacuum environment. Terraforming mars is better idea.
It can dis balance fragile life system on earth.

We must go from the ground, maybe staying there, but without different resonant gravity around earth, I would not try to affect it...

It's like... One nuclear war and moon can be away.
Get energy production up and running, glass making robots building a gas tight dome to maintain life sustaining gases and uv/radiation protection. Water? Get life-forms evolving for the conditions!
we will eventually build domes
or, now that I think of it, more like balloons
Relative to the moon? Perhaps. Still a stupid idea. Venus is the only candidate with teraforming potential and it would take centuries to cool it minimum.
