While ey sketches a plausible future scenario, Steve Wozniak ignores the role of politics for a crude technological determinism. Even assuming the most extreme predictions of hard take-off, we squishy fleshbags still have to build the artificial intelligence destined to end history. Technology sure ain’t autonomous at the moment – to the contrary, it requires a vast system of coercion and the labor of millions. With ye old social revolution, we can achieve the easy life Wozniak mentions alongside meaningful decision-making power. Apart from the bourgeoisie, we’re worse than pets now.
