I can only dream that a robot could, someday replace me at work... but it is a good dream.

Easy one, I don't have a job.

Would be happy to have a robot that can do the cooking and chores though.

JJ, going to take a bloody sophisticated bunch of chips, cogs and levers to cover your skillset(s)! Damn close to humsn I reckon . . .

I'm a voice actor, so some of the jobs are already taken by automation (phone systems, book reading programs, map directions, etc.)

However, I doubt that we'll have an AI anytime soon that can handle the subtleties of creating realistic characters.

So... I'm safe. For now.

You are too late.



Although this was probably designed specifically for being a personal assistant and imitating "normal" human interaction and not human play and stuff like that.

But I don't think anyone wants to watch a robot over a human being. But we'll see. Same reason why my job as a Personal Trainer is safe. Some things people just prefer humans to do.

I'm sure the mundane, conversational stuff will get replaced, but I still don't think it's gonna be able to duplex-ate this:

Part of my job is to program robots, so I think I've got some time before I'm replaced by a robot. And when my job is taken by a robot, us humans will no longer be in charge.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.
