AI gets Duolingo translators laid off

Duolingo laid off a huge percentage of their contract translators, and the remaining ones are simply reviewing AI translations to make sure they're 'acceptable'.

        KEK, I mean, literally why would you not do this?
        This is a very reasonable decision from them. Why pay 4 jannies when you just just pay 2 to produce the same slop?
        The guys who made Duolingo are fricking geniuses.

    You're skipping ahead a bit, Duolingo.
    We're still in the normalization-phase of generative AI.
    But don't worry, soon enough we'll have half as many jobs available on the market, most of which will be entry-level prompt monkey jobs that pays minimum wage. Mainly because you no longer need to have any sort of expertise or training; just be fluent in a language the AI speaks.
    You books, movies, and games will become more and more generic, because writing will primarily be made using AI with minimal QA.
    Your games and software will have more and more minor bugs and generic assets, because it will be put together by AI with minimal QA.
    Communications (email, ads, presentations, etc.) will be more and more sterile, because it will all be largely generated by AI with minimal QA.
    You will consume the aislop, and you will be happy.

        Books aside, movies and games are too risky to experiment with, and therefore don't get innovated upon very much. Investors just won't have it.
        Even so, good films get the recognition they deserve. Recent Disney films got panned because they were trash. Same with the shit LotR show.
        The real problem is the fact that brand recognition and marketing is sufficient to carry trash out of the box office bomb zone. It doesn't have to be good, you don't need to like it, you just need to go SEE it. Anything else is irrelevant.

      It’s interesting. Initially I thought AI wasn’t much of a threat because if you have even a tiny bit of taste it’s obvious all it can turn out is generic, poorly-made slop. But it turns out businesses are perfectly happy with selling generic slop and people are perfectly happy with consuming it - they did so long before AI after all.

    Dont know what people expected, the writing was on the wall for years, being a translator was always a job on borrowed time, we didnt even need AI for computers to handle this, just a decent translation program.

    Like it sucks for these people, but its hard to feel bad when you've cultivated zero skills other than having been born in a bi lingual household. Thats really not even a skill these days anymore since theres so many bilingual folks now.

      >being a translator was always a job on borrowed time
      Translators tended to "pride" themselves on passing on meaning during translation when no direct translation is available. Something machines has a hard time doing until recently.

      Anime/Manga translators are an extreme example of this and it's about high time they get the boot too

            Anon, you still don't get it? That's exactly the point. The corporations LITERALLY DO NOT THINK THAT FAR AHEAD. Do you know what they see and think? They see "replace worker with AI, next quarter shareholder profits = HUGE!!!"

            They're not thinking about the economy. They're not thinking about the fallout. They're not thinking about how this destroys buyer power and would leave no one to sell goods to. This does NOT concern them: what they care about, like an addict sniffing a full crack pipe, is that they can make the Number Bigger for next quarter. Does that sound silly and scary to you? Yeah, it is! That's why we're in this situation, because corporations literally do not plan for a future more than a few months ahead at a time.

            Discuss what? People just need to accept AI is here to stay and jobs, and in some cases this term is applied very loosely, will be lost. If you want a future-proof job, start learning welding, construction, HVAC, electrical engineering, etc. Actually useful stuff.

            Yes, but just remember that those jobs are also not future-proof anymore either, and you will also run into the issue of sudden mass labor pools with limited jobs.

              For manual creative labor such as this you would need advanced robotics and intelligence that is capable of modeling the world at least as well as humans. Both of these things are many, many decades away. Far enough to say these jobs are future-proof. Most white collars are fricked right now, though.

                No, they are objectively not. Less than a decade away, and you're foolish to think that they need to model the world as well as humans in order to do things like weld. They're mimics. They mimic behavior from what's learned, and if you build a mobile welding machine tested and trained on thousands of hours of welding examples with a properly modeled AI, then you will quickly have an excellent mobile welding robot. These are not daydreams, these are technologies being designed and tested as we speak. Did you miss the video where a robot makes coffee after 10 hours of learning? We're trapped in a gigantic leap-frog cycle with this tech, there is no such thing as 'decades away' anymore.

                The only way to tax the rich is DEFLATION. The rich have their wealth locked up in hard assets. They get walking around money by taking out loans against overpriced assets to pay off loans against underpriced assets and live off the difference. They can do this FOREVER while getting even richer as long as the value of the currency always goes down. If the value of the currency goes up, they get crunched and have to sell their principle below price. This makes everyone else richer and creates more opportunities for normal people.

                Outside of industrial manufacturing, which is already done by robots because it's all standardized, you cannot really mimic a weld, though. Each one is different. It requires a degree of creativity. And robotics are still laughably limited and cumbersome. It is even debatable if capable autonomous robots are feasible with our current knowledge of material science. The only way manual creative labor can be outsourced to machines in any reasonably short timescale is if civil engineering suddenly becomes standardized (i.e everything is designed and built in a limited number of ways), and whether that is even possible is unknown. For the foreseeable future the closest robots will get to manual labor jobs is perhaps hauling heavy objects.

              Those jobs will remain largely future proof because you can't rollback commits IRL. AI will help guide humans who physically implement and semi-automate portions of the robotics manufacturing process, and near fully automate the basics of the design and research processes, while still needing human guidance on composition.
              Learn to prompt, code, weld, and 3d print buddy.
              The days of only knowing how to do basic CRUD apps, basic artwork, or basic truck driving are behind us.
              Creative fusions across fields is all you have left. Robotics is the obvious fusion that will take the lead, but there are also other combo fields that will come to the forefront as well.

                I agree with you on all of this, but my argument is that it will still not be enough to future-proof in the face of unstable corporations who will seek to minimize human hires to maximize profit. We're going to see mass instability from layoffs in search of that profit, and there will be no clear or open roads of employment left that won't be rapidly-diminishing labor jobs. We're about to face an unprecedented labor crisis, and none of us are going to win the gamble to be one of the robot repairmen.

                Then I guess the government can grow a pair of balls and hold a few billionaires at metaphorical gunpoint to either pay to play with new federal tax laws on the rich, or lose the market and face sudden mass legal attacks. If they want this shell game to continue, then they need to fricking pay for the bread and circuses.

                The actual problem would probably be in finding people who are broadly skilled enough to work on robots. Most people are skilled in one area, framework, or technology. Creative generalists will command high salaries for knowing how to best compose fine tuned prompt results and also knowing exactly where to not trust use of LLMs during the composition process.

      Going by the lack of paid ads lately I'm guessing it's more to do with interest rates, but they're going to sell it on the AI narrative because that makes them look less incompetent. They already have enough quality problems with their materials. The fact that they're putting AI gains into cutting costs rather than courseware improvements kind of tells you where they're at.

        It tells you where *every* corporation is at now. They don't want to improve. They don't even want to sell a product: they hate that. What they want is their Number to get Bigger, so they have the High Score and the most dollars. AI promises a very High Score, so every waking moment from now on is going to go towards investing in AI and implementing it to become free labor that doesn't have to be paid like a human. This will give them the Biggest Number.

          Unless if your talking about contracting to individual people, a business is required to file both a w9 and a 1099 with the IRS.

          For any business larger than a mom and pop, it's advantageous for them to file these forms because now they are able to write off whatever they paid you from their taxable income.

          So if your a tech contactor working for any medium or larger business, it doesn't matter if you willingly report your income or not, the IRS knows it was there and at worst you could be charged for tax fraud if you try to hide it
