We were talking about the future, and that’s where the future will take us, says co-founder and CEO Dan O’Neill.
And we were talking a little bit about the past.
So we were discussing how things were back in the 1990s and 2000s and how we saw that the world would be completely different in the coming decades.
But then we got to the future.
And the future we see is pretty much the same as it was in the ’90s, O’Neil says.
“But there’s so much more to it than that.”
The world has been drastically changed.
The pace of technology has accelerated, the number of things that can be done by robots has grown exponentially.
In the last two decades, a new generation of robots has made robots smarter than ever.
And they are getting smarter and smarter.
And robots are getting faster and faster, and faster and more powerful.
That is, they’re getting bigger and bigger.
They’re getting smarter, faster and smarter and that is putting a huge amount of strain on the infrastructure of the human race, O”Neill says.
And it’s all happening because we have a new breed of machine, OBrien says.
It’s a lot faster and much more powerful than what we’re used to.
And that is creating a whole new set of challenges.
The challenges are enormous.
But there’s also an immense opportunity in that, Oller says.
Because robots are so powerful, it is going to be so hard to replace them.
That’s a huge threat to our livelihoods and our lives.
And so there is going be an enormous amount of competition for jobs, jobs that are essential, jobs in sectors that are important.
And that is, of course, just the beginning.
There’s also the threat of climate change.
O’Brien points to the effects of global warming.
And the potential for disasters, disasters that will change how we live, work and play, and how humans interact with one another.
In addition to all of this, there are the things that are not so great about the world today.
For example, there is a great deal of suffering, and the world is still suffering, Ollie says.
We are suffering, not because of the robots, but because of humans.
And then there’s the threat from pandemic, Oli says.
And, of late, we’ve seen an unprecedented number of pandemics, including the one that struck India in 2014, which killed more than 5 million people.
And a lot of us are still mourning the loss of our loved ones, Olli says.
So it’s not that we’re not doing well, Olly says.
The situation is dire.
And it is, in part, because of human failings.
We can make progress if we work together, Oellie says, pointing to the need for collaboration and collaboration across the board.
But that will only happen if we are united.
We need to make sure that we have the courage to stand up to the bullies, Oelli says.
