Are humans the blockers to a frictionless world powered by AI?

”In a world where reality can be virtual, intelligence can be artificial, and news can be fake, what do we believe in?”

If commerce is the ultimate goal, isn’t capitalism removing the human experience, altogether — cutting out the middlemen and manual exchanges? Eventually, could AI-based algorithms eliminate the coders, too?

Without ethics, the world is moving away from reality fast.
