Sam Altman, head of OpenAI (creators of ChatGPT and other AI systems) recently posted these words:

"My work at OpenAI reminds me every day about the magnitude of the socioeconomic change that is coming sooner than most people believe. Software than can think and learn will do more and more of the work that people do now. Even more power will shift from labor to capital. If public policy doesn't adapt accordingly, most people will end up worse off then they are today."

New jobs will emerge that we can’t even imagine. 25 years ago, the idea of being a YouTuber or internet marketer were inconceivable. If we can eliminate jobs no one wants, like garbage collection, maybe we can focus on more important things as a collective.

Yes I've heard numerous people say the same. Problem is that AI is going to be better at most everything.

Starting this year AI is a real threat to encroach on the work of software developers, web designers, game creators, database developers, tax preparers, call center operators, copywriters, authors, marketing strategists, legal assistants. It's altogether possible self-driving vehicles could displace uber and taxi drivers, and truckers.

Consider this: Even those who design AI systems will in some cases be replaced by AI that can self-train.

Meanwhile...robotics. Amazon warehouses, auto manufacturing is becoming ever more automated. Fast food chefs are getting competition.

AI is going to create the biggest upheaval in human history. A war or famine or recession ends. AI is here to stay and it's going to get so incredibly smart at everything.

It will be awesome. It will be amazing. It will be magical. It could also be...

Found this tweet to be interesting:



Gives you some perspective.

AI has only been engaged in software development for a short time.

Already half (HALF!) of all code on GitHub (the world's biggest Internet hosting service for software development) was created by AI.

AI doesn't have typos. AI doesn't get sick. AI doesn't go on strike. AI doesn't have personality conflict with co-workers. AI isn't limited to 40 hours a week. AI is getting smarter by the week.

One of the things AI researchers talk about is "emergent properties".

What is that? Here, I'll let Chat GPT explain:

"Emergent properties are characteristics or behaviors that arise from the interactions of individual components in a system, but cannot be predicted or fully explained by the properties or behaviors of those individual components alone. In other words, emergent properties are novel and unexpected properties that emerge from the complex interactions of simpler elements."

We are racing to create something with no clue of what might happen. Years ago Ray Kurzweil predicted this and dubbed it the "The Event Horizon". Everything in the world will go into warp drive in directions we cannot anticipate nor really manage.

If you are in a creative field: film, tv, web design, fine art, game design...it's staggering to see this

Probably overstated, but one study on possible global job impact.

You have any links to prove that? Doesn’t sound right.

AI safety experts have long warned, "Danger! Don't do these things!"

-Don't teach AI how to code. It will re-write itself, and recursively improve in intelligence explosion. Oops we are doing that.
-Keep it in the box. Don't connect it to the internet. Oops, we are doing that.
-Don't let it master human psychology. It will come to manipulate humans. Oops we are doing that.
