The robot-ships are coming

The robot-ships are coming (they claim in the newspapers): as fast as within five to ten years, they will be sailing on the Trondheimsfjord. Technology is moving ahead and we make ourselves useless. In the grocery stores, we now have automated check out counters and robotic car washes at gas stations have been around for decades already. Perhaps before the end of my working career, I’ll be replaced on the ferries by a robot-Captain.†

Would you want to be piloted by machines across the fjord?†

In the future, some of us humans will perhaps only be used to monitor everything from behind a computer screen, whilst others cut eachothers hair, or sit at coffee shops drinking overpriced and bad coffee?†
