There's a lot of development in AI indeed. And discussing with friends, the general conclusion seems to be that we shouldn't make machines smart enough to become sentient. I think it's a shame, considering efforts like transhumanism and bioimplementation.
However, even if we make the non-sentient, as the article relates at the last bit a lot of people will increasingly be left behind as they are "replaced" by newer electromechanical counterparts.
My only insight about this, is that much as the previous industrial revolution, the people who adjust and learn to produce and operate these machines will be the victors.
In our case, coding. (I know, shutting up now )
