    You're talking about running factories. That's not AI. It's fetch a sheet of steel, position blade 3mm from upper right, cut down 6cm....

    You need to spend money of security and interfacing the Web front end to the systems that do the real work.

    Exactly and it depends upon how they are seen, are they a resource or a problem. AT the moment economic migrants in most of the world are see as a problem.

    The main thrust of recent government thinking is for their people to join the computer revolution, in the last 5 years there has been a 30% increase in US under-gradulates per year in computer science but are the middle classes coding themselves out of existence? Surley the one thing that computers in the near future will be able to do better than humans is designing new computers and coding?
    Is the traditional middle class coming to an end?

    The middle class won't have to end as long as society can adapt to a situation in which machines do most of the work.

    ... and assuming that there is gainful employment enough at the wage levels sufficient to maintain their consumer patterns.

    Right. And maintaining that gainful employment is going to be more and more difficult as machines take over more and more of the jobs.

    Robots can take care of the elderly without abusing them and help kids.
    I have a bee in my bonnet over elder abuse, not trying to attack you. An interesting concept but I doubt it will go anywhere
