The robots are coming

Happy 2014! I'm back after a holiday in Rarotonga, Xmas with the family, New Year with friends and a break from blogging. So where to begin? A round up of tech events in 2013, predictions for 2014 or something else? This thoughtful essay in The Guardian titled "The robots are coming. Will they bring wealth or a divided society?" caught my eye. There is no doubt that we're approaching a watershed where the cost and effectiveness of robots will make their use widespread. This will undoubtedly have an impact on employment; but will it cause mass unemployment and a more divided society or result in economic development and benefits for all? The answer really lies in society's hands. We have to make the decision - what sort of world do we want?
