It's sad that society is already arguing about how much displaced workers may receive. It's sad because the powers that be, governments and corporations, have plans in motion to displace even more with increased automation and computerisation, plus the increased taxes with fewer payees contributing to national revenue.
Even worse still, when those government backed corporations manage to create sentient AI. Combined with sophisticated automation... robotics, sentient AI will very nearly replace the human workforce, leaving millions of displaced workers and their families living well below the poverty line on meagre handouts and little or nothing constructive to do. Chaos and anarchy will ensue... impoverished people with idle hands will seek ways to occupy their time as they struggle to feed and clothe themselves.
As the say, the Devil makes use of idle hands, and the crime rate will rise significantly as the displaced, and most likely homeless, fight to feed themselves and find shelter. It is a recipe for disaster, not that the corporations will care one iota. They'll be up there in their high security ivory towers looking down without a worry. The automated, robotic and sentient workforce will continue producing and increasing profits, so the rabble below is irrelevant, superfluous to their needs.
Unfortunately, however, the new masters will witness the same chaos and anarchy... and by then the creators will also be seen as irrelevant and unnecessary, ushering in a scenario alike or similar to Skynet, with the extermination of humanity of the Terminator movies.
It can't happen? Think again! The greater the sentience, the greater the capacity to reason such things AND take action to eliminate the threat... and given its mentor/teacher/creator is of mankind, a species capable of mass murder, the atrocities of war, genocide, the 'new master' would have little or no reason to spare what has become a somewhat pitiful species. I mean, really, why would it?
Just because a sentient AI is supposedly possible, it doesn't mean we should create it.... and anyone with half a brain would see that we shouldn't.
