It was in Chapter 6, “The Lords of the Clouds Renounce Free Will in Order to Become Infinitely Lucky” that we can see how advanced technology really is becoming. Lanier writes, “sometime in the next two decades a vast number of jobs in China and elsewhere will be made obsolete by advances in cheap robotics so quickly that it will be a cruel shock to hundreds of millions of people”. Lanier then asks the question, “If waves of technological change bring new kinds of employment with them, what will it be like?” This is something that I truly fear, not just for other countries, but the United States as well. We advance so quickly with technology that it worries me for the people who may eventually get kicked to the curb because companies are able to replace them with some form of robots to do the work. Obviously fake, but still relevant to this topic, is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, starring Johnny Depp. In the movie we see Charlie’s father losing his job to some kind of robot because it is more efficient, quicker, and cheaper to use than people. I really do feel that eventually something like this could happen, and that will be a terrible time for the people in our world.
