 MEOW-LUDO DISCO GAMMA MEOW MEOW  Meow-Ludo is an advocate for emerging technologies. He started Australia's first open access molecular biology lab, BioFoundry. The goal of this was to democratise science by reducing the cost and technological barrier with respect to molecular biology.  He plays mainly in the fields on microbiology, electronics, microfluidics, and astrobiology with a focus on closed complex systems. Last year he had an opal card implanted in his hand, and was fined for modifying the card. This began the first cyborg law case in Australia, and is currently still in court. He also is a federal candidate with the Science Party, running in 2017 in the seat of New England on a platform promoting AgTech.

Its time we prepared for the possibility of a jobless future.

 

The future is female but it sure is terrible in many ways

Google’s Duplex voice assistant wowed everyone when it was first released onstage in a live demo. In the demo, the voice assistant, which happens to be a female voice, called up a hair salon to make an appointment. Caught up in the excitement, some people may have missed the dialogue in which the voice assistant asks for a ‘woman’s haircut’ — words few women would ever utter.

Why losing your job to AI automation could be the best thing to happen

McKinsey reported that 400 to 800 million jobs worldwide will be lost by 2030. That’s only 12 years away. Not enough time for an entire generation to retrain for completely new jobs. As co-founder of Transhumanism Australia, where we investigate systematic changes to society and humanity, I know only too well what exponential technology is doing to jobs…
