Editor’s note: good for a debate or classroom discussion about the use of propaganda and the importance of using critical thinking when reviewing content. Best for high school and university students. This is a Qatari government funded video that AI Literacy Editors believe contains falsehoods and inaccuracies.
Automation is already reshaping cities, just as the manufacturing collapse hollowed out America’s heartland. This is a tale of two cities, comparing the Rust Belt to Las Vegas, the city that is expected to be hit the hardest by job displacement due to robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D printing and other technologies in this fourth industrial revolution. AJ+’s documentary series on automation explores how advancements in artificial intelligence, robotics, machine learning and automated vehicles will affect jobs, cities and inequality. From trucking to radiology, new technology is already changing white collar and blue collar occupations, reshaping cities and concentrating wealth in the hands of the few. Robots are taking over the world as companies like Tesla, Amazon, Uber and Google are using robots to automate.
Important note: AI Literacy’s Editors recommends this video for those who want to view an example of what we believe is a dystopian and inaccurate documentary about AI and is funded by the Qatari government for a discussion about the importance of using critical thinking.
