Basic: “Computers that can compose, diagnose and savour a rose will cause permanent, massive unemployment.”
Aggressive: “Computers that can compose, diagnose and savour a rose should be banned.”
Pessimists (affirmative side)
Computers will be so capable that there will be permanent, massive unemployment and in order for us to continue to lead fulfilling lives we will have to completely reinvent our expectations and the way we live.
Previously limited to scenarios from science fiction, uploading human brain capacity will be possible, bringing ethical dilemmas and the risk of unlimited power for a tiny number of dominant ‘people”.
Optimists (negative side)
We humans will continue to be effective, productive, happy members of society served by computers no matter how sophisticated they become.
We will finally get to lead the life of leisure we have always aspired to – Utopia might arrive!
We will all be served by machines and economically supported.
