How Close Are We to a Fully ‘Bionic Body’?

And then the Donald came to town… The Republican Party’s ongoing civil war involves lots of fireworks and sub-plots, but the overarching fight is between two visions and three billionaires. Charles and David Koch are investing hundreds of millions of dollars to take over the GOP and push America towards libertarianism. Donald Trump joined the Republican Party to run for president and push the country in the opposite direction, toward populist nationalism. Do we need new laws for rise of the robots? Robotics is shaping up to be the next transformative technology of our time, says legal expert Ryan Calo, who argues in a new paper that we need laws to deal with the rise of robotics and artificial intelligence.

Do we need new laws for rise of the robots?

“Technology has not stood still. The same private institutions that developed the internet, from the armed forces to search engines, have initiated a significant shift toward robotics and artificial intelligence,” writes Calo, assistant professor in the School of Law at University of Washington. “Courts that struggled for the proper metaphor to apply to the internet will struggle anew with robotics.”

Why robots won't destroy the economy. SoftBank There's been quite a bit of concern recently that as robots become more capable they will squeeze into the workforce and replace our jobs.

Why robots won't destroy the economy

And to a certain extent, those concerns are justified. Robots are entering the workforce in a big way. At Canada's Humber River Hospital, in what some are calling the first "fully digital" hospital, robots are doing everything from mixing chemotherapy drugs, delivering medical supplies, and taking radiation scans. Humanoid robots are even being designed to assist astronauts with basic tasks aboard the International Space Station. Robots at work: The economic effects of workplace automation. From the first stone ax to the latest assembly-line robots, technology has long played an essential role in work.

Robots at work: The economic effects of workplace automation

As technology has advanced, machines are increasingly working alongside employees, as they do at Amazon’s new warehouse in Trenton, N.J., and robots have even been developed to help provide therapy for children during long hospital stays. As we’ve moved from devices that reduce physical effort to those that can replace humans, however, the benefits of technology for individual workers have become less clear, according to a 2011 study in the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology. In 2014 the Pew Research Center canvassed nearly 2,000 industry experts and found them to be deeply divided on how robotics and artificial intelligence will affect jobs and the economy over the next decade.

How robots, artificial intelligence, and machine learning will affect employment and public policy. Emerging technologies like industrial robots, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are advancing at a rapid pace, but there has been little attention to their impact on employment and public policy.

How robots, artificial intelligence, and machine learning will affect employment and public policy

Darrell West addresses this topic in a new paper titled What Happens If Robots Take the Jobs? The Impact of Emerging Technologies on Employment and Public Policy. It examines what happens if robots end up taking jobs from humans and how this will affect public policy. While emerging technologies can improve the speed, quality, and cost of available goods and services, they may also displace large numbers of workers. This possibility challenges the traditional benefits model of tying health care and retirement savings to jobs. The impacts of automation technologies are already being felt throughout the economy.
