More Robot news

from the article "Brain Corp, a San Diego-based software technology company, announced today that it has entered into a relationship with Walmart to provide AI services to the world's largest retailer."

"Brain Corp's BrainOS platform currently automates more than a hundred of Walmart's fleet of commercial floor scrubbers across the United States. BrainOS provides the machines with autonomous navigation and data collection capabilities, all tied into a cloud-based reporting system. Walmart expects to have 360 BrainOS-powered machines in stores by the end of its fiscal year, January 31, 2019."

"Walmart's BrainOS-powered floor scrubbers allow store associates to quickly map a route during an initial training ride and then activate autonomous floor cleaning with the press of a single button."

(I have no ties to this company)

Let's see:
They don't need health care, maternity leave, sick time, vacation time, never file a harassment complaint, don't get into company politics, hassle other employees, demand a raise, talk about joining a union.........

Your post reminded me of this article last year about Bill Gates:

from the article: "Bill Gates: Certainly there will be taxes that relate to automation. Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory, that income is taxed and you get income tax, social security tax, all those things. If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level.."

Except a robot doesn't need any of the things those taxes pay for.
