Automation and Artificial Intelligence: How machines are affecting people and places - Brookings
At first, technologists issued dystopian alarms about the power of automation and artificial intelligence (AI) to destroy jobs. Then came a correction, with a wave of reassurances. Now, the discourse appears to be arriving at a more complicated understanding, suggesting that automation will bring neither apocalypse nor utopia, but instead both benefits and stress alike.

Robots – and automation in general – have been riding a steep maturity curve in the last several years. Adoption rates are up. They’re getting smarter, doing more, and becoming more affordable. The “factory of the future” has become an established buzzword, and the rise of the robots is now conventional wisdom.

Robots to the Rescue...of Manufacturing - City Journal
It’s mostly accepted wisdom in policy circles: automation means that manufacturing employment is destined to follow the historical example of farm work, becoming a negligible share of the U.S. workforce. Even those who embrace the Trump administration’s efforts to “onshore” factories say that we should be “honest about the facts,” especially to those Americans still out of work. The erudite Ben Sasse, a senator with a Ph.D. in history, has called the transformation an “irreversible trend.”

How a “Robot Tax” Could Reduce Income Inequality - Kellogg Insight
Earlier this year, Microsoft founder Bill Gates threw his support behind a controversial policy: a robot tax. As workers in many sectors are replaced by machines, the government is losing huge amounts of income tax revenue. Taxing the companies that employ robots, Gates reasoned, could help slow the pace of automation, and the revenue could be used to retrain employees.
