I thought this would be an interesting article to discuss. I'm sure we've all seen this tablet technology at some of the chain restaurants and QSR's around. Now Chili's and Applebees are pushing to eliminate many server jobs. Another reason to support your local small businesses.
I was actually quite surprised to see "cooks" stated in the article as one of the jobs being eliminated by this technology. Sure, I could see one day in the distant future there being little tubes dispensing food product onto a hot flat top and little robotic spatula arms turning the food. But seriously? Not likely. I figure most of the jobs eliminated would be white collar, or very simple blue collar jobs, like operating machinery, forklifts and whatnot.
I guess most of us are safe though. If we do end up living in a dystopian future where most jobs are eliminated by kiosks, androids and terminators and most humans are just a poor, oppressed underclass; I figure the few jobs left over for humans will be prostitutes, drug dealers and Chefs.
