AI is making artists redundant

What if widespread AI results in even more widespread unemployment?

We are already dealing with the fallout of people being unemployed because computers made them redundant. At this rate everyone will be unemployed and poverty will be rampant.

    Sorry chud, but what you posted isn't art. Art isn't supposed to be aesthetic. Art is a political expression and isn't limited to drawings or paintings. No AI will ever replace pic related. Artists aren't employed workers anyway, so your unemployment argument is futile.

    There will just be different kinds of artists, and also still normal artists.
    People still buy paintings even though digital art exists.

    That would imply cameras made landscape art redundant but people still do it...

    A lot of humans only relate to other humans and are happy to see that a human did something and don't care as much about the product. Player pianos have existed for quite some time - part of enjoying any performance of human achievement has to do with the struggle of our own "machinery"; while maybe nerds (like myself) enjoy the result of great engineering and planning, plenty of people want to see the "triumph" and there's just less triumph if there's not a relatable personality for someone who doesn't know how complicated our current technology is

          Painters have a personna where they are misunderstood fragile geniuses. They use this as an excuse to defend their shitty art, saying only professional art critics have a right to have an opinion and that they make art for other artists.
          So they make it clear they want nothing to do with normal people, they dont relate

    You do not understand the financial implications of AI, but I will lay out one financial axiom.

    One view of the growth of AI is that it will create mass unemployment, and thus an economical horrorshow. People will lose their jobs and thus lose their ability to feed their families. Children will grow malnourished while parents struggle to make ends meet. Crime will rise precisely because it is a cheaper alternative to survive than attempting to 1) un-learn decades worth of experience and 2) re-learn and thus adapt to the AI world.

    I tend to disagree with the above paragraph, and see the inevitable AI future a bit differently. AI will not cause mass unemployment but rather mass abundance. The reasoning is simple: AI is able to work 24/7, 7 days a week, with no breaktime, no lunchtime, and no vacation, complaint-less, worry-less, and ultimately and infinitely is upgradeable throughout time—compared to its human counterparts who grow old, rot, and decay throughout time. Thus, as AI toils in our place, the price of products will go down precisely because AI is working more effective hours than humans. We will see a decline in the price of food and raw materials, thus everyone will have more materials for R&D and more than enough food (to the point of mass obesity, but that is a different argument for a later time) to do new things. As there is more food and more raw materials, and the fact that people have more time in their days—because AI is doing all the repetitive, trainable toil—there will be a mass of new opportunities, of which we are incapable of currently thinking.

    The future is not bleak with AI. If it is, garner enough intelligence until it is not.

      The future is bleak because even if AI can do everything for us, that doesn't mean we will have the money to buy anything it produces.

      We already live in a post scarcity society. Half of us don't even need to work. Look at covid lockdowns, everyone was just chilling in their houses and apartments. AI can stock the stores and farm the food.

      Yet we own nothing and rent and property prices keeps rising. These days you have to work 2 jobs just to survive even though there is no need for it.

      AI is worse than just automation, it's creative on the level we can't adapt to.

        This is true right now, but this won't last because our society literally lives off fossil fuels.

        >implying this new abundance will be shared

        It will be hoarded and concentrated by the 'owner/s' of the AI

        Please keep your Peasantries to yourself.

        AI reduces the marginal costs of production, thus reducing the price of products to the point that products are "free." Take, as a conjecture, food. Generally, supply-and-demand determines the price of food: if there is an oversupply of food and thus an underdemand of food, the price of food decreases; if undersupply and overdemand, the price of food increases (this is the consideration of time-value of money). Conjecturing how AI effects the agriculture industry is simple: AI causes an oversupply and underdemand of food which ultimately declines the price of food (because AI will work on it, practically, forever—unlike humans who require breaktime).

        To say that humans live in a post-scarcity society is the opinion of low-minds. As said earlier, please garner the required intelligence to un-bleak the future, for your sake. The history of world has never known such abundance we have today. The Kings thousands of years ago, if brought to the present, who then witnesses the life of NEETs will consider NEETs as Gods due to how much abundance we have: a simple, cheaply made hamburger, manufactured by hebe-hands is enough to shock the tastebuds of humans born centuries ago. If you disagree, then you do not know, and incapable, of knowing of what poverty such Kings have lived. If that is not enough, consider who is "poor" in ascending countries: these so-called "poor" have public running water, public bathrooms, public showers, public food banks, public libraries, public housing, and the list goes on and on.

        Here is the Axiom of Prosperity: having more abundance with the same or even less necessary work.

        If you own nothing in this world of abundance, and soon, overabundance thanks to AI, then, I say with absolute honesty, garner the requisite intelligence.

          People work more now with less control over their living situation and less ownership of themselves and their future.

    If AI can replace jobs, the cost of making products that require that job will decrease. Lowered cost of living lowers the importance of being employed.
