Will RFID Help to Enslave Us?

There has been a growing chorus of experts claiming that advancements in artificial intelligence and robotics will make human workers obsolete. The argument goes something like this: Computing power has gotten incredibly inexpensive. At the same time, we are seeing advancements in robotics, machine learning and machine vision that could enable robots to do almost any job humans do today.
 In February, I wrote about a December 2013 article in Wired magazine titled "Better Than Human: Why Robots Will—And Must—Take Our Jobs." In that article, author Kevin Kelly argued that we will soon see a wave of robots taking over most jobs that people are doing today. "Yes, dear reader, even you will have your job taken away by machines," he wrote. "Robot replacement is just a matter of time" (see The Age of Robots).
