I would like to know peoples opinions on how the human race will evolve with technology.

Given the fact robots are replacing large quantities of human jobs in almost every sector of industry at an alarming rate, what is the future of human productivity?

Thus far technology replacing old ways of doing things hasn't impeded job growth. Any number of jobs from a hundred years have been replaced yet others created. I do not think fear of technology is reasonable. Lets use the grocery sector as an example. Many stores now have self check out machines and Amazon is testing stores that don't even use checkouts. So the argument goes that this will lead to less jobs in Grocery stores because stores will not need as many cashiers. I would argue that is inaccurate. Firstly cashiers nearly always have more responsibilities than just ringing people up. They stock product, clean, help with inventory, and etc. In the future cleaner and more organized stores will become the norm. Employees won't have to stop what they are doing every time a line of 3 or greater forms to go help check people out. Secondly stores have higher profit margins on products produced in house like salads, cakes, breads, and etc. So expect more dedicated people working in the bakery and more options at your local grocery store. Lastly delivery and meal plan services are growing. Stores will need to people to shop the store and fill personalized orders. In 5-10yrs jobs in the grocery sector will not be down. They just might be more specialized.

It is presumed when technology replaces manpower that humans on average benefit, which thus far has proved true given the advancements in the agricultural and industrial sectors, allowing for cheaper foods and general goods / modern necessities. However can this curve continue?

For every job a robot replaces a new job must be created to fill the gap, not only do all replaced jobs need replacing with something new but also the exponential growth of humanity also requires an unprecedented amount of currently unknown jobs to be created. Essentially will technology cause a future pandemic in terms of jobs?

It will not lead to a pandemic. Expectations increase along with technology. Humans once drank water straight out of rivers and lakes (many still do around the world) but now demand filtered treated clean water. That demand increased what's require to treat and supply water. As expectations change new jobs are created.

Humanity has a symbiosis with technology(different levels of artificial intelligence) and this symbiosis started ca 2 million years ago. This technologic evolution can get exponential but I do not see so many risks by this on humanity.

There will be always something to do and recognize in every upcoming new moment of reality.

Imagine we would gain intergalactic access to the Universe by advanced AI and we would not have enough humans to send one to every galaxy... 

The realm we exist in provides much more information what Humanity would be interested at.

There is plenty to do, we just have to recognize and gain access to the new tasks of Humanity.  


If advanced AI would run our society our resources would be much more effectively allocated. 

A global, political and economical restructuration of Humanities current solutions would be required which suggestively should run on the commonly recognizable but finally individual human values. Knowledge, freedom, responsibility, peace, love, unity.....
