The 7 Stages of Robot Replacement



A robot/computer cannot possibly do what I do.

OK, it can do a lot, but it can’t do everything I do.


OK, it can do everything I do, except it needs me when it breaks down, which is often.


OK, it operates without failure, but I need to train it for new tasks.


Whew, that was a job that no human was meant to do, but what about me?


My new job is more fun and pays more now that robots/computers are doing my old job.


I am so glad a robot cannot possibly do what I do.
