I feel like 2022 is going to be remembered as the last year before shit hits the fan and AI explodes in the public consciousness as the most important thing going on in our lives. I think we're going to start to see entire job sectors disappear, maybe not industries but most businesses are going to lose at least one department.

I disagree.

If you look at the world around you right now, you'll realize it looks pretty similar to the way the world has looked for a long time, despite the advancements we've made in AI and other technologies. Sure things have changed, but the overall shape of the daily lives of humans and society has pretty much been the same for quite some time.

I highly doubt that we'll just step into a new year next year and that in the span of that year, society will undergo so much sudden and abrupt change that it'll look completely different than just the year before.

Technology will continue advancing and changing society, but it'll be gradual IMO. However, I do think society will look pretty different a decade from now, and even more so in 2050.

Totally respect that, I think that's rational. It's just that I also see AdeptAI and how close at hand it is and how many low skill office jobs that it would obliterate overnight. It has more to do with how many nonsense jobs there are that take very little substance than the actual raw power of the AI. it won't take much brainpower but it'll knock out more jobs than we think and that's what's gonna shake us

I respect your opinion, too. =)

I guess it depends on how many of those jobs exist and how easy they are to automate, and how fast the AI gets adopted at companies.

I will say that the CEO of Adept has said on some occasions that goal of the company is to augment and not replace humans.

That said, if you augment a human to do two people’s worth of work, suddenly one person becomes unnecessary and has been replaced.

When you say a long time, what timeframe are you talking about? Often people say the times have changed quite A lot, would you say that they are exaggerating and in what ways?

If you mean physical changes like why are there no green tall skyscrapers and buildings made out of wood with plants hanging on the side of buildings is because we don't need them. How do you define change? if you define real change as use living on mars then I am confident that real change won't even in 40 years. As AI and tech, in general, get more advanced the less that the user has to adapt to it.

The thing that everyone uses every day, in 10 years, hasn't been invented yet.

hard disagree, there is still much to be done to really get the attention of the general public
