A fact not in evidence

Some day, probably not in our lifetimes but perhaps not long after, machines will be able to do most of the tasks that people can.

What could possibly be the grounds for that statement? Is there any reason whatever that this person has any competence to judge whether it's six months out, or 600 years?

You've got this completely wrong. Machines have been able to do most of the tasks people can do for decades.

Well, not much of an insight. I pretty much always have everything completely wrong, so you've started with a false premise.

But reading as a human being, what the author meant was something different. What do you think of that proposition (i.e., his)? I happen to agree with him. I'm merely objecting to the "probably within our lifetimes" bullshit.

I'm not sure it matters but the quote says "probably not within our lifetimes"


I think he said that so he could not necessarily be proven wrong at the moment of his death.

Also I am not sure what is meant by task. Why would a machine de designed to what I do. Seems like a bit of a waste

Certainly it's a waste. But, this seems apt. You could easily be a bot, working at just my level.
