Robots to the Rescue?

Adafruit 1049

Robots to the Rescue? @ WSJ.com By HOLMAN W. JENKINS, JR.

Robots are coming because robots are needed. In 2013, we can already see the appetite in the transportation sector. Aviation analyst Kit Darby figures the industry will need 65,000 new pilots in the next eight years to cover expected retirements. One reason for the millions Google GOOG -2.26% has been spending to develop a driverless car is to meet anticipated market demand from America’s growing elderly population.

let’s welcome the new year by envisioning a future that won’t be so bad, where modest entitlement reform and proper incentives for robot builders will save us from the Soylent Green solution to an aging society.


Wait, what??
