Automation replaces the only labour about 3/5 of the world can do.
Russia only cuddles up to China for its industry. Which has the superior culture?
In thousands of years, what have they created? Manufacturing is something a monkey could do better than a human if it weren’t for animal rights groups. When the industries aren’t demanded, what about the insane 20th Century population boom of the farmer regions, able to do nothing else?
They can all vote but less than half can produce net, more than they consume, than the lotus-eaters.
What happens to those people?
When their governments will be unable to provide charitable donation food?
The problem with AI has many layers.
Surveillance yes, another Master yes, hacking and bugs, humanity.
What about the economies it totally destabilizes?
It would be like an alien announcing themselves, overnight change.
There won’t be any leisure robots. Do we have robot butlers? The idiots are being sold on their own enslavement using their most predictable head-nodder, the Muh Dick method. We’ll have VR, like a WOW sub, most of the world won’t afford it.
AI that advanced WILL steal your job.
The military will keep the best, always does.
You’ll become a cyborg whether you want to or not.
Biometric ID cards were the first attempt.
Any deaths, like computerized cars, go down as a malfunction.
If someone’s paying to pimp your life, they want to own YOU.
China won’t ever eclipse America’s post-war success. America didn’t even deserve it because it was spared most bombing. China is too corrupt, too culturally dishonest, to be the standard currency.
Look at the attempts to repair the reputation
China already spends lavishly on research and development, and publishes reams of scientific papers. Spending on R&D has more than doubled as a share of the economy since 2000, reaching 2.1% of GDP in 2014, just below the rich-world average, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), an inter-governmental think-tank. Meanwhile, GDP itself has trebled. The OECD thus says China will be the world’s largest R&D spender by 2019. In terms of scientific papers published in English, the country is second only to the United States, and its output is rising by 20% a year.
If you’re wondering why so much medicine kills you.
But much of the published work is insubstantial, and a worrying amount is fraudulent.
Commies. Can’t trust a collectivist.
Just do the studies and see.
Marxism was more toxic to the East than West, it plugs into racial differences.
This can never be changed.
Allows the corrupt to float fake money.
But as President Xi admitted to the assembled academicians this week, science and technology remains “a bottleneck” for economic growth in China. The biggest problems are fraud and the academies of science and engineering themselves.
In 2014 China’s anti-corruption watchdog said it had “uncovered fraud in research grants managed by China’s Ministry of Science and Technology”. In April the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology retracted an article by scientists from Dalian University, in Liaoning province, because it suspected the peer-review process had been subverted. In 2015 BioMed Central retracted more than 40 papers submitted by Chinese researchers.
The prevalence of fraud reflects poor oversight and a dodgy research culture.
But sure, I’m imagining it.
Why do we need honest science?
Meds that aren’t poison?
Gold that contains gold?
More commonly counterfeited gold coins are Chinese gold pandas, $20 Liberty Head gold coins and St. Gaudens gold coins.
