The potential impact of automation on society could lead to a scenario where a significant portion of the population lacks the necessary skills for high-demand fields such as health and science, resulting in a division between high-skill and low-skill individuals. This could lead to a dystopian future where only a privileged few can access enhancements and advancements, creating a divide between the affluent and the less privileged. However, the key to avoiding this scenario is through retraining and providing the right education and motivation to enable everyone to pursue high-skill jobs. The focus should be on job transitions and ensuring that individuals have the opportunity for dignified and meaningful work through appropriate education and training.
