"Flippy is an artificial intelligence-driven robot that can flip burgers on a grill and then place them on a bung once they are done cooking."

No thanks.

Fine by me, but the restaurant had goddamned better take the savings and give their remaining workers higher wages.

That's where they'll eventually end up anyway. Kind of avoids the middle-man this way, with robotic efficiency.

I can't find the original thread at the moment, but this is a repeat.

I've spoken to a couple of venture capitalists about this, and they've told me that they're going to have to cut wages if they want the robots to be competitive.

The thing is, it's simply not fair to the robots.  At least one automated burger flipper walked out when it heard his "teammates" were making nine and ten dollars an hour, according to FOX News.  Meanwhile, may work forty- and fifty-thousand hours, and it may never get a single dime.

It's about fairness and making sure everyone gets paid what they're worth, so I'm sure you can understand where I'm coming from.  Entry-level employees need to take the hit on this one.  The robots will certainly understand why the board is earning their paycheck, but you and your friends, you need to make sacrifices.  That's what being a good employee is all about.

Now back to work, Leroy.  That steel smelter isn't going to clean itself.

I seriously doubt that a) you are actually a "Navy Seal" or b) that you've done the things you've claimed to do.

This is how McDonalds will solve that wage issue.

The SEALs wouldn't let me in because they know what I'm caple of.  It'd be total destruction, as I rain the Hellfire missiles down on my opponents with the shoulder-mounted cannons.

Good thing, because such a career path would not be nearly as satisfying as my current one, where I deny employees their right to a wage.

You're thinking of a TF thread we were in, but that wasn't greened. Search for "advocates".

fta: "'It functions as an assistant and intuitively knows when to flip burgers and then places them on buns when ready."

AI that has intuition? wow.

Hmm. Intriguing. All I need is a large enough dog crate and a water bottle filled with whiskey. Where can I send my résumé?

In a few years, Flippy can move on to fry-cook, and there's room to move as a fry-cook.

Chintzy motion control system has to pause before every movement to process the code. Must be a Fanuc robot they bought.
