Brian Merchant, su Gizmodo, spiega come la narrazione su “i robot che ci ruberanno il lavoro” sia completamente fuori fuoco:
Robots are not threatening your job: business-to-business salesmen promising automation solutions to executives are threatening your job. Robots are not killing jobs: the managers who see a cost benefit to replacing a human role with an algorithmic one and choose to make the switch are killing jobs. […] At first glance, this might seem a nitpicky semantic complaint, but I assure you it’s not — this phrasing helps, and has historically helped, mask the agency behind the decision to automate jobs. […] if the robots are simply “coming,” if they just show up and relieve a helpless lot of humans of their livelihoods, then no one is to blame for this techno-elemental phenomenon, and little is to be done about it beyond bracing for impact.
