HitchBot Murdered in Philadelphia

Food for thought.

“HitchBot, the hitchhiking robot, successfully hitchhiked across Canada, the Netherlands and Germany. But things got scary when he got to the U.S.” — AJ+

    I think I can understand the reaction. In Europe and Canada, there are safety net programs to help workers who lose their jobs to robots. In the US, there is no relief for workers who lose jobs due to automation. This is the same motivation that led Luddites to destroy the automated looms that were destroying their jobs in 18th century England.

      Interesting. Thus the term ‘Luddite’ for people who resist new technologies.
