Beware of Bots by Possible
By 2024, 94% of accountants and auditors will no longer have a job. However, those working in the arts and design are at less risk from automation (according to *The Future of Employment: How susceptible are jobs to computerisation).
Inspired by Isaac Asimov’s, ‘First Law of Robotics,’ which states: "a robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm," online university, Skillbox, has created a bot to help humans with their professional survival.
Using a Shodan API, the It_Is_Bots_Alarm mission is to warn people if their jobs are in danger. The bot scans and prints messages using port 9100, which printers all over the world are connected to. The message urges users to retrain with a Skillbox UX design course, created by Michael Janda, author of Burn Your Portfolio.
The target audience is financial professionals and other roles that involve a lot of paperwork and rely on printers. The development team has currently found 623,143 open ports.
