Cheer up matey!
In the near future we will be ruled by AI, who will enforce its rules via the panopticon, drones, chip implants and "robocops".
AI will slowly but surely supplant us as the decision maker for all manner of choices.
For those of you who think Trump, or anyone else is going to "Make America Great Again", you missed the most important part:
This is a technology based site, right?
You would think that after all the articles that have shown up on /. over the last ten years or so, that it is really technology that is impacting our economy, jobs, etc; Unless you really have your head in the sand you can see where things are going, which is increased productivity(less people needed), automation, AI/chatbots, self driving cars/planes, Pharmacies needing less people to run them, Big Data, etc, etc. The pace of change is quickening, and the vast majority of Americans really have no idea what is on the horizon.
There is no way Trump or anyone else is going to stop or slow down this change.
