Zan and Dr Karl’s guest today is Quantum Physics Professor Stephen Bartlett. While they discuss heady quantum mechanics topics, it confirms that with the increase in computing power, especially when quantum mechanics can be fully utilised in computing, the robots are coming. ABC news have been running articles all week on the future workplace that includes robots. As noted in the article on the 7.00 PM News, 5/7/2017, it will not just be labouring jobs that will be lost or those doing repetitive tasks. There are already computer programs that can find case studies in law that means lees junior lawyers or law clerks doing research for court cases.
Time for a new societal structure – stay tuned.
