Deloitte, 2017: "Operations will cease to be delivered by humans."

Deloitte: The #Future of Operations, Deloitte Global Impact Report, Nov 13 2017


#Covid19 is the conduit to the #4IR now in full motion. As people come to terms w/ what is being forced upon humanity, we will soon regret that we did not unite to oppose to draconian lockdowns/expanding surveillance that will serve to protect/insulate ruling classes from revolt.
#UBI (universal basic income) is a tool designed by the rich to stave off #Molotov cocktails - while at the same time enriching themselves even further. The ruling class knows full well what they are unleashing - but the citizenry does not.

L. Rafael Reif, President, #MIT, Davos, Jan 18, 2018:

"Yet many fear that this time the change may be so fast and so vast, and its impact so uneven & #disruptive, that it may threaten not only individual livelihoods but the #stability of #society itself."

"A new global economic apparatus is being laid down that is profoundly anti-human. The Fourth Industrial Revolution will dispossess people from their means of survival and replace "work" with robots and #AI."

"In the near-term, we anticipate that adoption of #virtual #health will accelerate in an uncoordinated, haphazard way. But over the longer term, it will likely become the new normal."
April 14 2020, The Guardian: "According to the Bureau of #Labor Statistics, 43,000 #healthcare #jobs were lost in March 2020, and the job losses in healthcare have increased as shutdowns persist through the #pandemic."…
