How can we pay for a guaranteed livable income?

Bill Gates says that, if a person produces $50,000 worth of work, they are taxed. He says that robots should be taxed just like people.

I wonder if we ought to do the same thing for all automation, including the automation that has pushed families off most Canadian farms and has allowed corporations to buy up most of our agricultural land (and gain control of our food supply). What do you think?
