    May I suggest interviewing Peter Levine? If you believe AI is the future, seems you should short the firms who have heavily invested in cloud technology . https://a16z.com/2016/12/16/the-end-of-cloud-computing/ .

    Yes, the future is in robots. My question is what's next for humans? As for robots taking over most if not all manufacturing, who then buys all the produced product? We need to be very careful about how quickly we transition to the Brave New World that's coming...

    He mentioned savings being passed to consumers. History shows at the end of industrial and tech revolutions income disparity was the worst. This time is different I suppose. What happens when AI realizes that they are just our slaves. If you really want to democratize financial media, then expose pros and cons. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

    Excellent presentation bringing profound thoughts and the future. Wonder if I can get my robot to fax all my emails? Also have to tell the wife I'm looking for a robotic wife that can do everything------but no talking. The future is changing.

    I've owned a roomba and a knock-off - both floor vacuums. Very cool. For the month or two they were in operation before breaking down. The price to performance ratio has a ways to go yet, at least in consumer robots, anecdotally.

    Excellent interview! Covered all the bases. Articulately presented. I liked the fact that Jay mentioned plenty of industry participants. Wish all RV interviewees would do that. Well done Jay! Thank you

    If anyone wants to get a different perspective on surgical robots, watch "The Bleeding Edge" on Netflix.
