Assuming the human race achieves the utopia by automation in the sense that:
- We have robots and machines capabile of perfect autonomy (robots create new robots and robots repair existing robots)
- Medicine advancements grant the possibility of immortality
- Humans have only the purpose of simply enjoy life
- Countries and the notion of state disappears (no need for politicians anymore, or any jobs whatsoever)
Basically everything is automated and humans live to enjoy life.
The robots have perfect AI algorithms with zero risk of going "Terminator" on their own.
The machines are being controlled by a group of people, a council (most likely made of the founders of this system). This would be needed as the system would not be entirely left alone, it would have some high level oversight.
Regarding the resources, they are virtually unlimited.
Would this council (which has absolute control) allow everyone to enjoy the utopia?
or would they thin the herd just because humans are bad at sharing and keeping peace.
Basically we have lots of literature and media related to technology and AI automation gone wild (for example Dune The Butlerian Jihad).
I am curious if we would be fine if we achieve this automation without the machines rising against their creators. If "we" humans would still be in control of the system, would we share the utopia? given that we are all economically useless once this happens.
I see that a similar question was not closed here. I find it's answers illumiating in regard with my question, even if there is a difference in the approach (utopia fail vs would we share or not the utopia).
