Civilization requires slaves

“First use no humans”, which means if there is a way to solve a problem using machines, we should not ask a human to do it. https://blogs.hcinst.org/dd-ml-challenge/

“The fact is, that civilization requires slaves. The Greeks were quite right there. Unless there are slaves to do the ugly, horrible, uninteresting work, culture, and contemplation become almost impossible. Human slavery is wrong, insecure, and demoralizing. On mechanical slavery, on the slavery of the machine, the future of the world depends.” Oscar Wilde https://www.quotes.net/quote/34606
