“Passing even a fourth-grade science test isn’t a single task.

The exams require specific and general knowledge to pass, and Clark can easily check his research’s progress by grading the computer’s performance.

The robot apocalypse presaged in The Terminator might not (and almost certainly won’t) come to pass, but smarter machines aren’t exactly risk-free.

A block away, a man without teeth yells incoherently at four police officers imploring him to stand and put on his shoes.

Is this a glimpse of the future, where more and more people are left behind, replaced by machines that think better and act faster than humanly possible?

A World Economic Forum analysis last year estimated that by 2020, automation and robots will eliminate roughly 5 million jobs in 15 of the world’s developed and emerging economies.
