    "Economist Andrew McAfee suggests that, yes, probably, droids will take our jobs -- or at least the kinds of jobs we know now. In this far-seeing talk, he thinks through what future jobs might look like, and how to educate coming generations to hold them. Andrew McAfee studies the ways that information technology (IT) affects businesses, business as a whole, and the larger society. His research investigates how IT changes the way companies perform, organize themselves and compete. At a higher level, his work also investigates how computerization affects competition, society, the economy and the workforce."

    Some folks have ZERO hours workdays as they are financially comfortable; inheritance, trust fund, etc., so there's NO physical WORK needed, some work their tails off for not much gain, some have never worked, some will never work offline, some do not want to work either on or off line,

    About the machinery in the planet Altair in the movie Forbidden Planet:
    The machinery has been self maintaining, lubricating, changing worn parts, updating for 1000s of centuries.

    Regarding the potential possibility of such prognostication as suggested by the O.P. and 1,000s of similar videos:
    EVENTUALLY, IF WE do not annihilate ourselves through greed, avarice or plain and simple ignorance.
