McDonald’s ex-CEO: $15/hr minimum wage will unleash the robot rebellion
 
Tells Fox Business a "$35,000 robotic arm" is cheaper than hiring, training mortals.
 
In an appearance on Fox Business' Mornings with Maria, Ed Rensi claimed that a minimum wage increase to $15 an hour would result in "job loss like you can't believe" before ceding ground to our new robotic overlords. "I was at the National Restaurant Show yesterday, and if you look at the robotic devices that are coming into the restaurant industry—it’s cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who’s inefficient making $15 an hour bagging French fries."

New McDonald’s In Phoenix Run Entirely By Robots

Robotic ‘Alpha’ machine can produce six hamburgers a minute
 
Covered by Singularity Hub this week, a San Francisco based company called Momentum Machines have developed a new type of robotic assembly line that can produce approximately 360 hamburgers every hour. Called the Alpha machine, the device has been designed to replace all hamburger cooks within a restaurant or fast food establishment. Hypothetically, a fast food restaurant could also place digital touchscreen panels with credit card readers and cash machines at the counter in order to eliminate all cashiers as well. The consumer would simply place an order through the touchscreen and wait for the custom hamburger to appear at the end of the assembly line, likely tagged with an order number.
 
 
Wait until they start building ones that feed you too!

Solving the problem of robots. Those random bits of code. They have a habit of forming together from time to time...only take a second! Do the 3 rules apply?

Some of the fastest Rubik’s cube solvers in the world have gotten down to a five second solve — which is quite an incredible feat for a human — but how about one second? Well, [Jay Flatland] and [Paul Rose] just built a robot that can do exactly that.

This is horrible. Now we have to think about what other jobs will be taken over by droids.

The Monsieur Drinks Automaton Roboticizes Bottle Service
 
Would you buy a robotic drink maker from these men? I sure would. These are the creators of Monsieur, a robotic bartender that will squirt out a great margarita or a nice Manhattan in about a minute using Android, a bunch of pumps, and some booze.

Think of it this way. You'll no longer have to memorize all those drinks. Pre installed software will mix the perfect drink every time. Just push the button.

Not all the time. There are lots of places out there that make their own signature drinks. Best advice for that is to be polite and ask the customer what way he would like his drink mixed. This guy makes some good videos for people who work in the bar tending industry.

Social shortages? That's a good one. Interesting to think about. Have you considered your own behavior online when posting on social forums? Is it any different as compared to social interactions with real people? How much social interaction takes place during your day with real people. What is the setting for these interactions? Work? School? Events of one sort or another. Do you still post on the forums when you go out to entertainment establishments? Does your mobile smart screen dictate your life? How much has human interaction changed with the advent of online social clouds giving us access to each other through electronic means?

 

Social Droids of the Future
 
 
 
Nadine is a so-called social robot: a robot that can interact with humans and follows their social rules. She is a work in progress. Everything she “learns” has to be programmed. Right now, for example, Nadine’s creators are programming her to grasp things with her hands. This will enable her to play games or retrieve items, important skills for a robot that could be the prototype for a future companion or health care provider.
 
Non-human health care providers may have other advantages over humans in those roles. A 2014 University of Southern California study found that people were more willing to share personal health information with a virtual human on a screen than with an actual human during a mental health intake. The virtual human could show empathetic responses, facial expressions and body language, yet the participants felt it was less judgmental than an actual human in the same role.
 
 
What if a robot needs 'social adjustment'? What would the DSM bible prescribe to a confused computer?
