Bill Gates says that usage of robots in the future will lead to unemployment
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said during a speech recently that both governments and businesses need to prepare for a world in which humans will be competing with robots for jobs. Speaking at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, DC, Gates said that as the costs for robots and technology go down, the demand for low-skilled jobs will also decrease. He said that governments might eventually have to reduce taxes to persuade big businesses to continue hiring human employees rather than investing in robots to fill the job. He went on to say that even high-skilled workers such as accountants, commercial pilots, astronauts and police officers are at risk of being replaced by AI-based robots in the future.
low-skilled jobs =
công việc kỹ năng thấp
eventually = cuối cùng
persuade = khuyến khích
astronauts = phi hành gia
AI = thông minh nhân tạo
Man robs store with banana he stole while waiting in line
Police in Philadelphia in the US state of Pennsylvania say they are looking for a man who robbed a convenience store by using a banana in his pocket to simulate a gun. The surveillance video shows the suspect stealing a banana from the counter by the cash register while waiting in line. He then placed the banana in his front pocket of his hooded sweatshirt and pointed it toward the cashier. Saying he had a gun, the man demanded cash and cigarettes before riding off on his bike. According to police, the banana gunman is still at large.
