    Is this a real possibility? Or just scare tactics?

          This one is almost funny.  Tesla tells owners that their car is NOT autonomous; that they are responsible for making sure it doesn't wreck.

          Then this idiot tells the cop that he isn't responsible as the car was driving  because he was drunk, with a BAC of over double the legal limit.

          It will be interesting to see if Tesla confirms it was on autopilot at all when they read the history in the computer.

    Outside of the gross exaggerations and sensationalism ("AI will "sink the world into unemployed despair" in a hellish "dystopia" as just one example), yes, some will lost their current job.  Happened when farm tractors came available, or the cotton gin, grain harvesters, etc.  And again when trucks hit the road that would carry the load of 50 wagons with mule skinners and yet again when refrigerators began to appear in homes and all those people cutting ice from rivers to save until summer went unemployed.  That one used to be a major business - cutting ice in the north and boating it south into the Carolinas.

    They started saying this back in 1998. 20 years later, we literally have to tell people not to eat Tide pods. I don't think we really need to worry about technological advances causing mass unemployment. It's the growing stupidity of society that I worry about.
