When Uber Cars Become Driverless: "they Won't Need No Driver

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Katina Michael shares her views on the prospects of highly skilled human resources being replaced by a machine. Business intelligence data is now pointing to the fact that 47% of all jobs will be automated by 2034. The author is worried that the change is happening so fast that skilled people are being jobless. Though this change is good and is expected to create more jobs, still too much of automation is also not good. She is worried that technique has taken over all of man's activities, not just his productive activity. The news of Uber taxis going driverless makes the author more worried as she feels this will increase a hefty sum while traveling from Uber. The car's door will not open until we pay the hefty amount. But even worse will be if those driverless machines, stop being programmed by humans, and are programmed entirely by other machines based on generic ideals.
