Welcome, Robot Overlords. Please Don’t Fire Us? — Mother Jones
This is probably the best summary of the state of AI (exponential growth is not as slow as we think) and its future impact (the Luddites were 200 years too early).
A must-read article. A lot of this replacing-humans-with-machines is already happening, and jobs are disappearing. The Challenge is how we can re-organise society and money, in a new age when few people need to actually work, and machines can do everything better.
Another, more serious, piece at Technology Review Magazine.
