Robo-Revolution: A Marxist Approach to Social Uprising in the High-Tech Age

2019, vol. 18, No. 3, pp. 224–244 [issue contents]
With the increasing role of technological agents in contemporary society, questions surrounding the future of so-cio-economic organization are intensely debated. A variety of predictions have been made, ranging from conservative views that emphasize the gradual integration of techno-actors into human social collectives to radical outlooks that assume the inevitability of a dramatic historic break. This study employs the method of simulation, exploring the on-going path towards automation with the help of classical Marxism. It seeks to understand whether robots and artificial intelligence (AI) might become new value producers and a revolutionary social class. As demonstrated, the continuity of capitalist relationships may facilitate the formation of new social groups and recast class-based political agendas.
