"The White House released a report today warning of a future where artificial intelligence and robotics will take the place of human labor."

recode: Robotics and automation technologies, which are under rapid development, “have the potential to disrupt the current livelihoods of millions of Americans,” the report read. by April Glaser

'Millions of jobs lost is no small deal — and in the final days before the nation transitions to a Trump presidency, the Obama administration has a message: The coming wave of labor displacement due to automation will need to be met with “aggressive policy action.”

'The report also calls on the government to keep a close eye on fostering competition in the AI industry, since the companies with the most data will be able to create the most advanced products, effectively preventing new startups from having a chance to even compete.'
