Kal Penn Suggests ‘Universal Income’ For a Future Where A.I. Will Be Killing Jobs

‘The big picture here is that A.I. is going to do so many things so well that at some point... ‘

EXCERPT:

PENN: “And the other big update with this new version is that this can analyze images. Like a photo of what is in your fridge. I don’t want that! “You have too many candy bars, alerting Michelle Obama.” The big picture here is that A.I. is going to do so many things so well that at some point, it’s going to put a huge amount of people out of work. So what do we do? I have two ideas. One: implement universal basic income. [Cheers and applause] There you go. Or two — and hear me out here, we let the machines eat all the surplus people. No? Okay, yeah, less popular, I can tell. Enough about machines killing people.”
