Technology has rapidly thrust robots into the human economy but fears are spiralling that artificial intelligence will spark mass unemployment.

Dr Subhash Kak – a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Oklahoma University – previously said robots could replace humans at "literally all jobs".

But now he has exclusively revealed why this would create a world of despair, and it would render human nature meaningless and surplus to requirements.

Kak told Daily Star Online: "The beginnings of the dystopia are already there.

"There will be massive unemployment. People want to be useful and work provides meaning, and so the world will sink into despair.

"Policy makers have begun to speak of a minimum guaranteed income with everyone provided food, shelter, and a smart phone, and that will not address the heart of the problem."

Kak points to modern drug use and young people turning to extremists groups such as ISIS as a consequence.

And he believes that autonomous robots may be able to create jobs that humans haven't even thought of.

He told us: "In my view, the current opioid and drug epidemic in the US is a manifestation of this despair.

"Likewise, phenomena such as ISIS are a response to the meaninglessness that people find in a world devoted only to the cult of the body.

"Some say that current phase of automation will create new kinds of jobs that we cannot even think of.

"The current revolution is replacing the thinking human and so its impact on society will be enormous."

His comments come after Kak previously revealed how killer conscious robots may "bide their time" before enslaving humans.

A robot that 'terminates' able bodied welfare recipients would save us millions.

We will all be able bodied welfare recipients is the point.
This is reality ""Policy makers have begun to speak of a minimum guaranteed income with everyone provided food, shelter, and a smart phone, and that will not address the heart of the problem."

Do we? If a robot is 500x smarter than a man, why do they need humans?

The first industrial robot to be used by a major manufacturer was by General Motors in its New Jersey plant in 1962.

Oh, these arent your grandfather's robots we are talking about. So, if I have a robot and it has uploaded in it brain the whole internet and every piece of code written man, why cant it repair itself or each other?

Can stupid robots sue for discrimination and get jobs that much more qualified robots deserve?
