    Well after watching this video I learn’t something new, but It was also really interesting to hear that robots could take over peoples jobs and other stuff to do with robots. My reaction when I saw this video was that I was like ” OMG this is really interesting but also scary because it would be weird for robots taking over out jobs and stuff…

  2. Alexis says:

    I don’t like the thought of machinery doing our jobs that we spend 13+ years of our life to have the education to do what we enjoy. For example Firefighters spend years and years to get the ability to save people (and Cats from trees) because it makes them happy and feel good about their society, and all those years everyone spent to do their part to help the city to make it a better place. These metallic creations are going to put all our work to no use ad make us feel like we have wasted century’s working on nothing.

    I really hope that the robots don’t take our jobs because all these years wasted on something we thought would educate us has just wasted our times on this world.

      But you would probably earn money by getting a job that can’t be taken over by a robot or help people to not only earn money but also be a good citizen.

  3. Dylan says:

    I think the fact of having a basic income would be amazing it would solve a lot of problems but also sprout a lot of them too. As you know a lot of homeless people are homeless for a reason. a lot of them are either addicted to alcohol or are drug addicts.
    Now this doesn’t go for all homeless people but most and if they had enough money to buy their drugs and alcohol all sorts of stuff would be going on such as unexpected attacks from people overdosed, drunk drivers witch would lead to accidents,and assaults.
    it would be good but very very bad.

  4. Avery says:

    I disagree with the poverty line because people getting money for free a total NO because people could use it for buying drugs; alcohol, unsafe medicine, or even weapons like; guns, knives, swords etc. I am basically saying I disagree with the basic income if robots take over our work. 🙁

  5. Johnathon says:

    In the future, a basic income I think would be quite good because there are many people who cant get a job and cant afford basic things like food or clothes, and the amount of jobs that will be taken by robots and machines in the future will make it even harder for people to make money so a basic income will be good.

  6. Levi says:

    I think that it would be cool to not have to work, but then you have to hope that you still get money. Then there is that stat that if you just have money to get your food and house but how he was saying that we would all get and we would have to go out and go out and get the stuff that we need. but in all I disagree.

  7. John says:

    watching this video, I disagree because if people wast all there money. It would be harder to get money.

  8. Sophia says:

    I learned from this video that for the people who have jobs they should get paid but some of there tax go to the people who don’t have jobs or a house any of those things we need. So they can pay for some of those things.

  9. Isabella says:

    After watching this video, I realize how many things are run by technology nowadays. I agree with giving people basic income because SO many people are homeless or on the verge of being broke. That puts a lot of stress on the person(s) and that leads to self-depression. Plus, all the government money that could be going to people for basic income, is being spent on entertainment, training facilities, and things that people might not be able to afford. So, pretty much, the government is spending their money on people above the poverty line. That seems kinda mean, don’t you think?

    • Avery says:

      I agree Isabella it is kinda mean that the government spends their money on people above the poverty line. It’s just so sad 🙁

  10. Sarah says:

    I agree with Avery because lots of people out there ask for money and use it for things they don’t need. I personally think it would be quite scary for robots to take over our jobs. After watching this video I am more aware about getting a job in the future.

  11. Brianna says:

    It’s going to be hard for most people but for the people who know how to fix things they could lean how to fix robots and they will make the most money or maybe instead of having people work may be the bosses will buy robot and they get payed what the robot make instead of paying workers and everyone might have to start their own businesses or learn how to fix the robots and they would make the most money because robot will probably break down.

  12. Salma says:

    I don’t think it is possible for robots to take over humans, because humans have brains to think, solve problems, be creative, and be artistic. Robots don’t have a brain to do those things, so they will just take orders, and if something goes wrong they can’t do anything about it.

  13. Hailee says:

    I think they should give certain people money but not others. I think this could be a step ahead and a step back, if you know what I mean. If they give the money to the wrong people they might do something bad or not right with it, like buy weapons, drugs and alcohol, instead of buying homes and food. I don’t now how the government would find the right people, but they need to! In conclusion some people should get money and others shouldn’t (it is not discriminating if they don’t deserve it).

  14. Salma says:

    I don’t think it is possible because humans have brains to think, solve problems, be creative, and be artistic. Robot don’t have brains to do those things, so they would just take the orders, and if there is ever a problem, they wouldn’t be able to fix it or do anything about it

  15. Noah says:

    I don’t think that robots will take over our world because human have the socializing skills and a brain and robots don’t have those things that humans have so they cant do as much as human so I don’t think that robots will ever take over humans.

  16. Noah says:

    I think that it would be good if the government gave people a seitan amount of money because it would help a lot of people out especially the homeless so every body can be wealthy and happy with shelter, food, water, needs.

  17. Chloe says:

    I think it would be scary having a robot around doing our jobs as we sit around being lazy. After watching this video I should start thinking about jobs that wont be taken by robots.

  18. Dominick says:

    wow technology these days

  19. Nathan says:

    I think that if we did have basic income people might not work as hard, because no matter what they did they would always have food, water, shelter and some clothes to put on their backs. plus we might have a lot more drug and alcohol problems because they would get money every Month or Year to go out and buy some so really the government would be funding the problem they were trying to fix. Although on the other hand we wouldn’t have people out on the streets begging for some thing to keep them alive. we might even be able to create camps for people in the program until they had a job to move out.

  20. Kailen says:

    I think that if robots where to take over are jobs, everyone should be able to get a check that pays enough for shelter, food, and water. This agreement would go on for life, or we could go back the in time and have no money what so ever.

  21. Livia says:

    I think that its a good idea to give people enough money to get a house and cloths and food because it will help them get a job to make money and stay healthy and do fun things that they couldn’t do before

  22. brady says:

    i think the idea of robots talking are jobs is not that crazy but but its still a bit crazy of a crazy thing to think about but i do think allot of none school needed jobs will get taken

  23. Issac :)` says:

    Wow! It is crazy that we could be replaced by robots in a while. My reaction was like what wow we need to change are ways of living and stop being lazy.

  24. Ryan says:

    I don’t think it would be a good idea to do that, I think it would be good and running after a year or two but getting it started would be very crazy. I think lots if people would start protesting on it because they to keep it the way it already is and some people would like to change it. Like I said earlier it would take a while to get it going and there would be a lot of trial and error. Would some people have to keep working on things that robots can’t work on? Will people like the change? I my opinion I wouldn’t change from the way it already is, the system we have right now is totally fine, so whats the point of switching?

  25. Mikayla says:

    i do think its a good idea to give income to people who are homeless or broke when they cant provide for there family’s or themselves however the problem with this is that people may use this money for just the things they want and not the things they need.

  26. Jobie says:

    I think it would realy scary because they could get realy angry at you or they if your parents where going on a vacation or to work maybe a robot would take over for then so it would be realy scary so o don’t now
