robots: Introducing Flippy

Jobs of the future will be what robots can't do. Dr Michio Kaku
Oregon ranks 49th in 2013/14 Public High School 4-year Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate, tied 45th with Colorado for economically disadvantaged, tied for 40th with North Carolina for students with limited English proficiency, and 45th with students with disabilities.
There are undoubtedly numerous non-monetary benefits to a good education (both personal and social). However, in purely monetary terms the answer has to be "quite a lot." In 2001 the median income for men with professional degrees was $78,861 per year greater than that for men who never entered high school. Men who finished their schooling after earning a BA made on average $20,071 per year more than men with only a high school diploma.
Along with the financial data, more Americans are staying in school longer than ever before. Currently, almost 9-in-10 young adults graduate from high school and about 6-in-10 high school seniors go on to college the following year - both all-time highs. This means that the competition for good jobs will be even more challenging.
The first jobs to get cut and the last to start up again are in the lower income brackets. There is less leeway in this category since the amount of disposable income for items other than food, clothing and shelter is substantially less. Therefore, foreclosures and bankruptcies hit this group especially hard.
High school or less Lost 5.6 million jobs. Between January, 2010 and April, 2016, that category only gained 80,000 jobs back.
According to the March, 2007 report from the U.S. Census Bureau, adults aged 18 and older earned the following:
GED certificate holders had lower earnings than those who earned a regular high school diploma regardless of sex, race and ethnicity or age. Overall, high school diploma holders earned approximately $4,700 in mean monthly earnings compared with GED certificate holders, who earned $3,100. a difference of $19,200 a year.
There are thousands of succssful people who didn't get a high-school diploma, thought extrodinary creative talent was the ticket for many and they aren't the norm. There are humdreds of thousands of potential graduates who didn't and too many of them remain below the poverty line and in need of financial assistance to get by. Many in the low skilled positions are going to be lost as many of those positions are taken over by robots and machines. While the high-school diploma opens the door, the need for vocational training and retraining will be necessary to keep up with the fast changing world.
Robots are Coming: Introducing Flippy - Curry
Let me introduce Flippy who has been flipping burgers full eight-hour shifts at Caliburger in Pasadena. His brother was just called up to the major's to improve quality and speed of service cooking fried chicken tenders and Tater Tots at Dodger Stadium.
Some fast-food restaurants here in Oregon have already replaced counter help with a kiosk to order and Education Week predicts by the time "today's 6th graders hit their prime working years in 2030, automation and artificial intelligence could have eliminated half the jobs in the United States economy."

Learn why jobs like middlemen, low-level accountants, bookkeepers, agents and tellers will be out of work (http://bit.ly/2ngWxAd).
Those who will benefit are those who engage in intellectual capitalism involving common sense, creativity, imagination, leadership, analysis, writing a script, or book, doing science. We're making a transition from commodity based capital, like coal, to intellectual capital, like figuring things out - thinking.
Why is it important to stay in school? http://bit.ly/2mwuhdP. Start by thinking about the future you'd like to have and then think what it's going to take to get there. It all starts with a high school diploma.
Jobs of the future will be what robots can't do. Dr Michio Kaku
Robots have very bad evesight. They can see shapes, uty not objects like faces, cups or chairs.
Pattern recognition and common sense are big problems for A.I. Roberts don't understand the simplest things about human behavior, about the world.
Robots don't know that water is wet or that strinsg fan pull but not [ush. So 2 jobs that will thrive in the future and the two jobs that will be destroyed are as follows:
Among blue-collar jobs
Repetitive jobs will be wiped out. The automobile and textile industry workers are particularly in danger.
Among white collar job
The people who will be thrown out of work are: low-level accountants, bookkeepers, agents and tellers, middlemen, - the friction of capitalism will be obliterated.
