We are almost there, and no UBI is not the solution because the goverment will rather kill you or if you get it you will get a social credit slave.

I'm an artist that just realized my job is hopeless and being done so much better already by a machine but where would you move to earn a living when that happens to your work?

AI will not do everything humans do but better. Before we get to that point, humans will use the power of AI to enhance themselves to improve their own biological capabilities, and if necessary will merge with AI to become a kind of cyborg.

I cannot imagine humans letting AI have all the fun that comes from this technological revolution. We will want to benefit from it ourselves as much as possible.

I didn't say that, but you will be jobless and hungry while the current government fights over who's gonna fuck us over next election cycle.

My mindset looks at the reality and looks at facts and how the world is moving and how it's reacting currently to other actually struggles. And I don't see leadership who cares about anyone then themselves or there donors.

I don't think there gonna send out "death" squads like the tea cuppers of the Obama era. I just think, just as it is now, we're gonna be left to starve in the long run.

Also I'm currently in school to become an electrician one of the few jobs that robotics will have a harder time getting into. But sure, fill me in there, cause in the end you do you, and I do me, and we will see who makes it past this filter event.

Community and kindness is humanity's best bits and I just want to make a place of people of like minds to do the same.

The only way the common folk have made it through so many terrible events through out history is by sticking together and helping each other. I believe this will be the ultimate test of that.

Also, about the OP, I get being defeated. Life is hard right now but in a very silent way at times. We acknowledge that we live in a time that our ancestors could never even imagine could exist. So we should fill joy and be celebrating a life of real freedom. But instead humanity is still clinging onto to the last visage of animal savagery in us and glorifying in it.

Truth is for most people, the coming famines and chaos will be the end. Even for people "prepared" for it will probably perish as well. But the only way to make it at all is by sticking together and sharing and pooling talents/resources together.

There’s still a lot of oversight jobs that will need to be done. The trick is to get the human jobs paid well.

Also, as a published writer myself, I did go through an initial fear phase with learning AI can write scientific essays with citations. Our government has probably already been using it (as I assume they’ve had the tech somewhat before us). It gets info out quick; but still needs managing. I’m actually excited and have started working with my Alexa at home to answer some bigger questions. This will raise scientific revolutions in other fields to catch up to technology with its exponential evolution. I’m someone who’s more of a naturalist and loves working with meta-analyses. AI can amalgamate knowledge, but not truly process it. It’s like we can finally have all of the data we would like to be able to make better decisions.

Maybe the question that has the answer of 42 is how many renditions of this Earth until humans finally figure out that nothing is coming to save them and if they want to survive they need to figure it out themselves.

I suspect that the more saturated we become with AI creations, the more valuable individualistic expression will be. It's novel now because there's wider access to something which was previously difficult to create, but I think people will get tired of its limitations eventually and then we'll see a counter resurgence of people looking for things which are organically authentic.

I don't know how long that would take, though, it could be a century, and it will likely be the case that very few people are able to succeed.

Edit: I asked this question to the OpenAI chat bot and got the following:

"There will always be a need for jobs that involve creativity, empathy, and human interaction. Some examples of jobs that are likely to remain important in the future include:

Educators: AI can assist with learning, but it cannot replace the role of a teacher or mentor in guiding and inspiring students.

Healthcare professionals: AI can assist with diagnostics and data analysis, but it cannot replace the role of a healthcare provider in interacting with patients and providing care.

Artists and creative professionals: AI can assist with the creation of art, music, and other creative works, but it cannot replace the role of a human artist in bringing unique perspectives and emotions to their work.

Social workers and therapists: AI can assist with analyzing data and providing support, but it cannot replace the role of a human in providing emotional support and guidance to individuals in need.

Human resources professionals: AI can assist with recruiting and evaluating candidates, but it cannot replace the role of a human in building and maintaining relationships with employees and creating a positive work culture.

Overall, jobs that involve human interaction and require creativity, empathy, and problem-solving skills are likely to remain important in the future."

It does a good job of saying why AI shouldn't replace humans in those jobs, but not how those jobs aren't being replaced by AI anyway.

It's just imitating empathy though, may well be better at doing so than most people, but feelings aren't comforting when they're manufactured. I do kind of disagree with the AI response that it couldn't fulfill the role of a therapist though, it could certainly do a better job in emotional support than some people who actively harm their clients through malpractice or ignorance.

We could even do it non - violently, but the longer we wait, the less impact we'll have. We can organize. We can have massive general strikes. We can decide that money, the thing the elites use to determine wealth, means nothing. It only exists because we agree it does. It's not hopeless. They just want you to believe it is.

BaconRaven t1_j0munn1 wrote

It is difficult to predict with certainty which jobs will be automated or replaced by artificial intelligence (AI) in the future, as the development and adoption of AI technologies are constantly evolving. However, it is likely that certain jobs and tasks that involve repetitive, predictable, or data-intensive work will be more vulnerable to automation, while jobs that require creativity, flexibility, and human interaction may be less vulnerable.

Some examples of jobs that may be more vulnerable to automation in the future include:

Data entry and data processing jobs

Manufacturing and assembly line work

Customer service and support jobs

Driving and transportation jobs

Repetitive office tasks and administrative work

On the other hand, jobs that require creativity, problem-solving, and human interaction are likely to be less vulnerable to automation. These may include jobs in the fields of healthcare, education, social work, and the arts, as well as jobs that require decision-making, communication, and leadership skills.

It is important to note that the impact of AI on the job market will depend on a variety of factors, including the pace of technological change, the nature of the work being automated, and the policies and regulations put in place to support workers. It is likely that the employment landscape will continue to evolve over time as AI technologies develop and are adopted in various industries.

matthra t1_j0onxnn wrote

I'll agree that it's inevitable, but how much time we have is the question. The replacement of human labor is likely to be incremental, because AIG is such a tough nut to crack. So certain areas will be replaced before others, so we'll have a few dry runs before the whole thing gets finalized. I'm hopeful we can figure it out, but big changes come with a lot of unforeseen, like imagine trying to predict internet culture wars based just on DARPA researchers making the first versions of the internet. "Wait so everyone has access to every piece of human knowledge, and that somehow created more flat earthers?".

I think that it will take generations to get to full automation, because there are challenges unique to most specializations that are hard to master completely. That is a lot of time for a society about to lose necessary employment to figure out how and if to replace it. UBI might be the way, but given how incompletely we see the future, it could be that there are circumstances that make it not the best solution. I think we should keep an open mind, and not despair because our favored solution looks unlikely.

*edit* An example is UBI is predicated on capitalism, and we may find capitalism doesn't work with hyper-unemployment, which would be a very likely step along the path to full automation. There are a lot of corners we can't see around, and a lot of corners we have yet to see at all.

I agree and disagree at the same time. It doesn't make all humans obsolete but greatly lessesns the amount of people needed especially entry level. For example, lawyers. Will AI make all lawyers obsolete? Probably not but will great diminish demand for paralegals and first year lawyers that we were mostly reviewing case law, finding precedent or just doing simple contract like wills, leases and etc

Basically tech will do what it has been doing, make the great workers even better and more productive while cut down the rest. I actually think this is what's happening now and a factor in growing inequality

I'm a software engineer and already, much of the heavy lifting is being done by AI-generated, black-box applications. Take Tesla's Autopilot technology for example. It was not programmed by people and the engineers there will be the first to tell you that they don't really know the specifics of how or why the black box made its decisions. What they can tell you is that the results meet expectations. Now I know some nerd is going to start waxing technological (new term... trademarked) about how that's not true; the black-box is programmed by somebody; that's not how it works, etc... But it is how it works. It's the whole reason for black-box architecture. Sure there are things that still need to be interfaced by a person, but all the "thinking" is already done. Soon, even the hands-on stuff will be reduced to a purely babysitting task. It won't take long at all for this to be standard practice.

Working in the bustling cloud industry in one way or another, suddenly getting a website running isn’t that hard anymore.

Look at the camps of kids mining cobalt with their bare hands in Africa or the acres of slums in India and Brazil. It already exists, it will just spread out.

I find myself hoping that a black swan event will derail AI tech.

Is it a fear from not understanding how limited these technologies actually are? I can explain how this technology works and you'll be able to see exactly how small the threat actually is.

The best solution is to promote policies that shrink the population.

Not exactly. At every point in history when tasks were automated we ended up needing more labor. This was a fear every single time and every single time we ended up hiring even more. I've studied AI and ML technologies as well as the history of technologies and can tell you that if this were going to happen it would have happened not long after the technology was originally developed in 1948. Or when it was refined during the 50's and 60's. Artists are somewhat overreacting to something that threatens stock photo companies more than anyone else. People seem to think that there isn't a limit with these technologies and there really is. Barring a major change in the way space works we are going to have those limits in place for a really long time.
