Mr Jones--you seem to be living in the past--children/immigrant carersMr Jones wrote: ↑Tue May 15, 2018 9:54 amKinchy
Stop making this thread all about you, we don’t want your life story thanks. We were discussing useful roles for immigrants and the need for special care in our old age . Some kids will gladly take their parents in and look after them some won’t, some will reluctantly sell their houses and go in to care, there is a good chance that some of the people delivering this care will be immigrants, God bless them. In the event immigration falls and our own people are forced in to these roles, do you think the quality of care will increase, I don’t.
Get with it
Artificial Intelligence will address all these issues---eventually !!!
Just as automation has begun to do jobs previously seen as uniquely suited for humans, like retrieving goods from warehouses, robots will assist your elderly relatives. As a robotics researcher has commented-- I believe artificial intelligence has the potential not only to care for our elders but to do so in a way that increases their independence and reduces their social isolation.
In fact --I do hope AI starts debating on this forum soon
Probably make more sense than many of the posters on here !!!
