    Lightbulb Mind Resensitising Technology Initiative

    Consider the following initiative (to be implemented at the scpoe you find appropriate):

    Whenever tasks, problems become too mundane or routine for the attention the take from human minds, intense reseach is done on making the tasts done automatically (by computer, or robot or whatever).

    Opinions?

    Any tasks you believe qualify?

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    But then what will people who aren't intelligent do for jobs once all the simple ones are eliminated? That's the thing you have to worry about.

    Seriously though - all transportation on this damn planet. Not feasible, but the use of optimization for driving, trains, plains... it would be incredible. And it's such an awesome solution to the congestion pollution and stuff.
