QUESTIONS The mechanization of labor that has occurred over the last 150 years is now culminating in what seems to be a new phase, the rise of the robot In your first essay for our class, I want you to grapple with the implications of what our robot future might mean. The essay should address the advantages that robotization offers (the techno-optimist position) and the concerns such a future might bring (the techno-pessimist position). To bring a different perspective to your discussion chose a type of robot (perhaps the sewing robot) and analyze its potential impact using Allenby and Sarewitzs levels of technology. Remember, this is a prompt for writing. Your essay must cover all the points discussed in the prompt but you have freedom to decide how you would like to do so. Any arguments you present MUST be supported by credible sources.
