ROBOTS causing millions of job losses could lead to the rise of communism says Mark Carney

Mark Carney warned the automation of jobs currently done by humans could trigger mass unemployment and wage stagnation.

That will create vast inequalities between workers who benefit from artificial intelligence and those whose careers are wiped out by it.

“If you substitute platforms for textile mills, machine learning for steam engines, Twitter for the telegraph, you have exactly the same dynamics as existed 150 years ago when Karl Marx was scribbling The Communist Manifesto,” he said.

I predict robot communists.
