Looks like AI took the jobs of programmers before it took the jobs of artists, who is next? Posted on January 25, 2023 by Anonymous Looks like AI took the jobs of programmers before it took the jobs of artists, who is next?
To add to my original post, I feel that as a gay man AI will effect me more than a cis. What are your thoughts on it?
Artistchads fought back to keep their jobs protesting against AI
Programmercels bowed their heads and took the L in the ass like good little goys
Why are techcels such cucks
Why aren't we fighting back?
There has to be someone out there doing something to help defend our profession.
Why the fuck would I "fight back" for the privilege of wage slaving 80 hours a week under Microsoft's thumb? Are you delusional? Is it a kink, Masochism?
Some of us work for a living and know that gibs and muh ubi are a death sentence.
Artifically holding back technology so you can do pointless work which could be automated instead just so you have work to do sounds kinda retarded
This, the whole sector should go under. "tech" is a small margin of the work force anyway.
If the government is actually willing to give out UBI, then it shows some level of commitment to life. The end state of capitalism and AI existing in the same society necessarily is that humans will not work. You cannot justify a business hiring a human when they could not, because they are legally obligated to maximize profits (Thanks to Dodge vs Ford, if you intentionally take less profitable decisions, you can be sued by your competitors). The question left to governments is "what do we do about those who have no capital, and who cannot work?" UBI is the solution that enables people to live, with some degree of dignity. The alternative is to let them die, and society along with it.
>The alternative is to let them die, and society along with it.
This one, this is what is going to happen. Sorry.
>This one, this is what is going to happen
You assume humans die quietly and without a fight. Try cornering a small mammal sometime and see what happens, and then remember that humans have the same instinct.
Okay yeah, great speech meatbag, face the corpse-pit.
You assume NPC's are capable of even understanding basic cause and effect. They are not. half of the population of a country could disappear and most people wouldn't even notice.
That's not what the ruling in Dodge vs Ford said.
Why is everyone who uses the term "late-stage capitalism" always the biggest idiot imaginable?
thats not exactly what it said but it was close enough autist. Why are you a fucking retard?
No, it's not even close. You are wrong on almost every level.
You can not be sued by your competitors. Dodge v. Ford ruled you have an obligation to your minority shareholders.
But it doesn't even mean that, really. What it actually ruled is that you can't deliberately make bad business decisions with the goal of fucking over your minority shareholders or deliberately crashing your stock for a buyback.
To add to the shit-heap of retardation, it's a Michigan Supreme Court case, not a federal case, meaning it only applies to companies incorporated in Michigan. Not Delaware, where most companies are incorporated. Not CA, where most of big tech is incorporated. Not the rest of the US.
The cherry on top is that it's a case from 100+ years ago. There are plenty of following cases that provide clarifications to the ruling and more-or-less erase any precedent it set.
But because mouth-breathing retards like you, who can't even properly read a wikipedia article, endlessly bring it up, every intro to corporate law class has to waste time addressing it, and every law student has to waste time explaining it to their internet-educated friends.
No he is right. I was the Dodge
I'd fight back if there's anything to gain
Guess who built the AI in the first place.
Also, your average sex-having New Yorker who doesn't understand what folders are won't get wth you programmers are talking about and will reiterate the exact point I said in the beginning. Artists are more diversity and lgbtqia inclusive, so its easier to root for them
>Guess who built the AI in the first place
Music is going to be the last artform to fall, they built a massive protection racket over the decades while all the other disciplines are trying to invent new ones from scratch.
>he thinks MS has 10k programmers
Even if your account is for web developers and hardware engineers, there are not even 1k developers, and most of them work on Azure.
Microsoft wants to be a platform that other companies use to make money. They don't want to have to produce profit themselves, that costs way too much money. Most mid-small tier companies won't have the funds to host massive crazy AI operations, but they can pay Microsoft for it.
This doesn't just mean no coding jobs for Microsoft, it means no coding jobs for anyone with a microsoft AI subscription.
I'm just going to keep going because this is the future: Microsoft and Amazon are going to create PaaS that lets laymen ask for a website and the AI codes, tests, deploys and manages software for end users. Content will be through a trendy easy to use UI. Microsoft gets their fill by supplying other physical businesses with a storefront, and gets some capital percentages on each sale. That margin will be small enough to be competitive and most companies will latch on.
The quality will be amazing for the price. You can just talk to the AI and they will develop everything from front to back. And you will get a little bill at the end of the month. At most you will have a tech to guide you through, but they will at most be customer service. You will not have basic web developers anymore after these services come out, they will SHIT all over the template website maker companies. The web will be even more consolidated.
This is TRUTH. And you will accept it, it's waaay to fucking late now.
who the fuck cares about webdev jobs lol
No one, that's what's funny.
Thank God. Webdev is a cancer on this world that must be excised as soon possible.
Hurry the fuck up.
It's almost like..... financial related items are all done during the same time periods and we're at the start of Q1 right now which means budget changes that may, or may not, have any relation to each other.
>implying artists and programmers are mutually exclusive
>implying artists who write code don't employ AI as a tool like any other
even graphic designers use AI tools. nothing has changed.
programming is just a means to an end, if you put a lot of stock in your ability to "code" and are threatened by an AI that would just accelerate your workflows, you're retarded. Anyone that's not a codemonkey and instead an actual engineer or software architect is looking at this is a boon, not a curse
Weird Al was right.
notice how it didn't state microsoft laid off all its programmers
only the ones that couldn't write code better than a chatbot
>and they're spending $1,000,000 per layoff to replace them
>be tech company
>COVID forces everyone to work from home
>knee jerk reaction over hire to manage people, fill excess positions, buy up startups for remote support help/projects
>shit goes back to normal
>realize you panic hired a bunch of people at a high salary that may or may not be qualified or doing anything
Why does no one look back to the people who had 3-4 jobs at once and barely working them, or the people who got hired during covid and sat around like the guy from office space. No shit tech companies used the last year to re-evaluate their hires and their salaries
>or the people who got hired during covid and sat around like the guy from office space
Confirmed never worked in an office. That wasn't a parody, that's literally how most office workers are, you fucking child.
>q1 layoffs in a slowing market
>layoffs are mostly support roles
Tech companies are chewimg the fat.
But to be a competitive programmer put ai into your dev pipelines yesterday (copilot or something better)
Real artists kept their job
All the worthless anime fanart shitters and internet porn patreon cucks are cold and starving, and good riddance, i can skip the useless middle man and just get the anime tits right on my face no questions asked.
All for a reasonable fee to the Nvidia leather man
Last time I checked some furry porn artists are still making over 60k/month on patreon
thats not a artist. thats an entire game dev team.
why don't you make your own AI? okay
as if being a corpo bootlicker is better than an independent artist with AI skills
AI might be the only way to sort the bloated mess the modern WEB 'design' is. It's really fascinating how some monkeycoders were pretending to be but actually get payed as legit software engineers by stacking framework upon framework.
Itms ability to create anything other than starter projects with millions of examples is limited. WordPress, squarespace and other similar services made webdev irrelevant too, remember?
honesty trying to get into web development is depressing for this exact reason, react has a framework now
Paradoxically, I find C/C++ easier to understand than that mess.
