Who Needs Humans?

RE: Who Needs Humans?
Foxconn appears to be headed towards robot labour. That seems to be in line with everything else. We're fine with advancement but robots = power and whoever controls the robots, however it is done, controls the world. Finance and Communication are already saturated with robots and autonomous processes.

More on Foxconn here.

Manufacturing has become more technological and so has the mining sector. Some countries have inducted robots into the education process. Government has spent loads on computerized systems, all part of the robotic agenda.

It can be seen as progress to a point in taking people off of dangerous, menial and repetitive tasks and given the right circumstances technology is a boon to us human folk. There was an uproar about lost labour when the spinning jenny was introduced.

With robotics, and technology in general, there is a line in concentration of power, autonomy and the human element in decision making. Our dependence on these systems and modern society in general transforms our role into one of co-dependence with those who control those systems relative to societies dependence on them .. at least until we are rendered useless eaters.

Robots have been creeping into military, transhumanism is being pushed (especially to children, cell phones have become an extension of people's bodies.

So will be managed by robotic systems (be it by Idiocracy or Technocracy), supervised by them, fitted with them (cyberhumanism), wiped out by them (Terminator), eaten by them, transferred to them.... there is certainly a digitization of human knowledge and behaviour going about.

Flesh eating hunter robots that can talk to eachother, have access to a DNA / biometric / terrorist / credit history / medical / criminal profiling database history jump 20 ft in the air turn into blobs, fly, have incredible balance, react to emotion, have bio-engineered skin, see through walls, shoot around corners, equipped with white phosphorus, have EM weapons, can learn via neural network, have EM shielding, can mimic invisibility on radar and to the human eye, equipped with sound weapons, energy weapons, have lighting fast reflexes, perfect motion tracking sensors, superhuman tactile abilities, super strength, cameras, mp3 players, taser guns and weather / chemical / biological / viral / microwave / radioactive / depleted uranium shells, can deploy swarms of nanobots that can enter your bloodstream & control your by your hypothalamus and can beat a grand master in chess.(~ref)

Terminators were never this scary in the movies. By then it will be too late. Humanity needs to unplug from the co-dependant hub or decentralize it.

Quote:Foxconn to replace workers with 1 million robots in 3 years

SHENZHEN, July 29 (Xinhua) -- Taiwanese technology giant Foxconn will replace some of its workers with 1 million robots in three years to cut rising labor expenses and improve efficiency, said Terry Gou, founder and chairman of the company, late Friday.

The robots will be used to do simple and routine work such as spraying, welding and assembling which are now mainly conducted by workers, said Gou at a workers' dance party Friday night.

The company currently has 10,000 robots and the number will be increased to 300,000 next year and 1 million in three years, according to Gou.

Foxconn, the world's largest maker of computer components which assembles products for Apple, Sony and Nokia, is in the spotlight after a string of suicides of workers at its massive Chinese plants, which some blamed on tough working conditions.

The company currently employs 1.2 million people, with about 1 million of them based on the Chinese mainland.
