Here are few sentences that I want to express in short thought on the matter of automation/AI. I think labor cost and other costs that impose on innovation, manufacturing, and whatnot would speed up automation and artificial intelligence a great deal, because countries such as the United States would like to outdo countries such as China in term of trade and other economic factors. For your information, I think as now China still has labor cost advantage over the United States. I see though that the United States could try really hard to push for automation and artificial intelligence, because in this way the United States can gain a competitive edge in trade such as in labor cost and whatnot. Nonetheless, if I’m China, I would do the same, and this vicious cycle would only speed up automation and artificial intelligence. I don’t have a crystal ball, but I think we may live in the future sooner than we would have like or prepare for. Furthermore, automation and artificial intelligence will only increase job losses, but it will take a much longer time for people to find new jobs. After all, getting a new job in a totally different field requires retraining and relearn. Before you know it, the whole world will try to push for automation and artificial intelligence. It’s coming sooner than you think!
