DOES WATSON WANT YOUR JOB?

How many times have you said "A robot can't replace me", or "A robot can't do the things a human can do". Well now some folks are actually concerned about computer such as Watson taking their jobs someday. Martin Ford, author of The Lights in the Tunnel: Automation, Accelerating Technology and the Economy of the Future, in a Fortune magazine article, and others argue that computers and robots have the potential to swipe not only assembly-line jobs, such as the manufacturing positions that dropped nationwide by one-third over the last decade, but the "knowledge worker" jobs of the modern economy, such as radiologists and lawyers. After all, if a machine can beat humans at Jeopardy, workers may in fact have cause for concern.

A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law..... A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. The Govt may not injure a human being or through inaction allow a human being to come to harm.....Would this require the Govt to eliminate highways as many people come to harm in car crashes - or spend tons of money to make them idiot and accident proof such as cars remotely controlled on rails etc. ....Would this require the Govt to force people not to live in flood plains on fault zones or in tornado alley - guess it would have to build huge domes to protect against weather.....Would this require the Govt to elimate skate boards bicycles etc.
