Do you think things would be much better if we had artificially intelligent machines running things?

Think about it, there would be no need for money, and human beings wouldn't have to work, or very few of us would. But what do you think? Do you think that people would be better off to do other things with their time other than thankless labor? We could spend much more of our time doing the kind of work that would improve our lives such as art, music, and also technical skills. Right now, there is a an organization called the Venus Project.

It's impossible. Watch the movie Wall-E, it shows the results of having machines doing almost everything. People will be lazy.
