I'm not young anymore but I own a business and AI is disrupting industries at a breakneck pace, let me tell you.

I'm not young anymore but I own a business and AI is disrupting industries at a breakneck pace, let me tell you. Writers are fricked. Artists are fricked. Programmers are in the process of getting fricked. Secretaries and assistants are getting fricked. It's a slow roll for some industries, fast for others.

What the hell are young people studying that is likely to be safe from AI and robotics disruption? Are they even thinking about the implications of AI or are they just going through the motions blithely unaware of just how massively fricked industries are getting right now, and we're only in the first inning of this revolution?

Young people tend to be moronic and detached from reality so I assume most have no idea but I'd like to think a few of them are thinking about this. I'm hearing horror stories all over of seasoned programmers who can't find any work at all, that's just one example but it's ironic because not long ago it was considered one of the safest industries.

      correction, you said you are not young anymore.
      I considered myself young all the way through my 40's. I could feel myself slowing down throughout my 50's, I mean really slow down. I expect 60-70 to be more of the same slowing with an increase in doctor visits. I've had a good life. Just make the best of it and stop sounding exactly like every generation that came before us.

      What happens when accountants figure out they are possibly the most likely (and easiest) to replace with AI?
      You're probably right. Accountants won't let it happen. kek

        This is generally irrelevant. The simplest job of an accountant is to make sure the books are balanced, as well as invoices properly filed. No one wants to get called by an AI asking them to send them an invoice. This requires manual investigation of things, including down to line-level examination. You could probably train it eventually, but it'd have to interact with humans, and no one's going to make an independent AI that can sit and call people. They're just going to hang up and assume it's a scam.

        Accountancy is also very closely related to financial policy in a business, particularly when it comes to formulating budgets, advising boards, and shit like that. Only the lowest grade of accountant might be affected by such a change, at least at the current rate.

    As a NEET who dropped out and only ever had a temp job, I don’t care that AI is taking over. In fact I want to learn how to take advantage of it whether it’s local models or SAAS.
    I’m also a bit of an artist, but I’m not THAT good that I would be seething at AI, yet I understand the pain creatives feel about it, however I still want to take advantage of it. How can AI help me make the things I’ve always wanted to make but didn’t have the will to do myself? That’s how I see it.
    Then again, I’m a NEET, so I put virtually no effort to bettering my life so when I see AI come along and apparently do the things I never learned to do, it’s a little vindicating in a selfish kind of way. But I’d say those with actual skills should be getting more into using AI. Even if I don’t feel like I wasted my time learning something that AI can do better, my disadvantage is I really wouldn’t know what to do with it. Professionals and creatives at least know where to start.

    You don't seem to understand. All occupations will disappear. No point in humans doing things if bots equipped with super intelligence can do them better and at vastly increased speed. The idea of humans generating value will disappear entirely, as we won't be able to compete with the AI. No point in trying to compete though if we control it. It will serve us and we can just do whatever we want really. Who knows man. A human's main mission might be to colonize other planets. Could you imagine that? An entire planet entirely to yourself or your family or your family and friends? Colonization might not even be the goal. We might just get to live happy lives forever with immortality or something, never worrying about anything

        I said this could happen if we control the AI. Of course there are going to be rich evil sons of b***hes that only want infinite power. Of course they are going to do everything that they possibly can to keep it in their hands. Once they have the tech, they won't want to ever give it up. They also won't need humans for anything anymore, so they would try to kill everyone and keep the AI to themselves. That's really the final battle, ensuring that the AI is used for good rather than being kept in the hands of the evil few. Probably our only way to achieve this is to merge with it, Elon Neuralink style. Power structures as we know them will either be reshaped drastically or entirely crumble. If we get to the point of everyone assimilating into the AI hivemind, there won't be any need for any sort of power structure at all. Shit's gonna get real weird and it will either kill us all, enslave us, or finally set us free

    >It is precisely because employers place a premium on innovation in response to rapid change that they emphasize these student experiences rather than narrow technical training. Therefore, the dominant narrative that one’s undergraduate major is all that matters and that only some majors will prepare students for success in the workplace doesn’t match the reality. A student’s undergraduate experience, and how well the experience advances critical learning outcomes (knowledge of human cultures and the physical and natural world, intellectual and practical skills, personal and social responsibility, integrative and applied learning), is what matters most, with 80% of employers agreeing that all students need a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences. Indeed, in the global knowledge economy, employer demand for graduates with a liberal education is growing.

    You need to break out of the reality distortion field of BOT anon, employers, CEOS in every sector, ppl who ping pong back and forth between high level govt positions and the private sector et al have been saying the same thing to young ppl since the 1960s, its just that sometimes autists such as the fine folk here just choose not to listen, a broad, liberal arts education beats a narrow focused, technical background in the long run, and this has been borne out by the data consistently, decade after decade
