Are Robots Going To KILL Your Next Job Or Create It?

Are Robots Going To KILL Your Next Job Or Create It? | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Everyone agrees that some jobs for humans will be lost to robots, and some jobs for humans will be created because of robots. But there is a growing debate about the math. Will the robotics revolution be an aggregate job creator or job killer for humans?

Biochemists have long imagined that autocatalytic sets can explain the origin of life. Could it be that the same idea--the general theory of autocatalytic sets--can help explain the origin of life, the nature of emergence and provide a mathematical foundation for organisation in economics?

A Proposal To Transform London’s BT Tower Into A POLLUTION Harvester

A Proposal To Transform London’s BT Tower Into A POLLUTION Harvester | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Royal College of Art graduate Chang-Yeob Lee’s ‘Synth[e]tech[e]cology’ project aims to repurpose the BT Tower into pollution harvesting skyscraper that extracts carbon from petrol fumes to produce sustainable bio-fuels. 

Lee chose to base his design around the 620-ft telecommunications tower because of its predicted redundancy and its location in one of the most polluted areas in London. The redesigned tower would serve as a way to gather economically valuable resources from pollutants in the atmosphere while reducing the level of respiratory illness in the city. 

“Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting”, said Lee. “We allow them to disperse because we've been ignorant of their value. Pollution could be another economy.”
The tower will also include “a vertical oil field laboratory and a laboratory for future resources present in the atmosphere”.
