Why are so many people in denial about AI replacing jobs?

This is especially noticeable with artists on Twitter. They are absolutely seething that AI can make better art in seconds than they can in weeks. The amount of mental gymnastics I've seen from certain people about AI is astounding to me. How can people not see the writing on the wall?

    People have been talking about the threat of automation since the start of the industrial revolution. Nothing significant has happened yet, and no the current layoffs in Tech are not the result of LLMs.

                I see self-checkout at grocery stores but they still have regular checkout lines. and the big chains are phasing out self-checkout
                Every 7/11 and gas station and convenience store has at least one real person inside running things. Only the bigger stores have self-checkout for additional lines

                is accurate. Big box stores either never did or quickly dropped. Local Walmart tried to go 90% self-checkout, and now they have 8 employees monitoring 10 self-checkout stations + AI video surveillance that makes them harass customers over 'missed scan' false positives while Jamal walks out with a cart of shit he didn't scan. It's a joke.

                The only shops that use it successfully don't really need it.

    most of them are genuinely upset BECAUSE they know they'll be replaced. A few are in denial but they're aminority.
    The ones who are still in denial are programmers. They constantly move the goalpost. A few years ago was "wake me up when it can center a div" then "wake me up when it can understand business requirements" now it's "I'll worry when it's AGI" as if AGI were strictly necessary to replace most codemonkeys

      AI art isnt art simply put, because art is best defined as creative work by a human to respond to the world and themselves.

      It is a commodity that resembles art though, it will replace the role that the artist plays in the art market, which already treats artists like AI designed to crank out 100 copies of something that was once meaningful. The visual artist brad troemel talked about how his plan is to use AI to make millions of copies of shit that what he calls "the wealth criminals who buy art" make so that he can get paid and use the money to focus on honing his own practice outside the demands of a market (pic related, its one of his digital pieces).

        ok but actual art for the sake of art artists are like 0.1% of artists so they're not relevant for the discussion

        if the financial incentives to produce art gets crippled then there will be way less artists

          There is currently no financial incentive to produce art lol. It is literally almost statistically impossible to make any real money from making fine art. Not rare, essentially impossible. The path from small gallery to medium to blue chip does not exist anymore because most of the medium galleries are closing. Most people doing it are doing are working in tertiary functions within the art world, i.e. the receptionists at selling galleries, educators, etc.

          The people who are trying to live off commissions or whatever because they draw furry porn are a different story, and they're gonna do that anyway whether theyre paid to or not.

              Coomers don’t draw for money, they draw to coom. They try and make some money on the side, but they’re still gonna do it. Deviantart in 2009 is ample evidence of this.

              AI generated coomer art has no audience except people (I presume) like you who crank off to it. Human made coomer art has a bigger audience because when I see like that drawing of sonic the hedgehog surgically turned into a toilet bowl with shadow as the water tank, I can imagine the inner life of the dude who drew it, and that’s what makes it funny and enjoyable. If a computer came up with Sonichu, who would care?

          Firstly, basically every now famous painter died broke. So there was never a financial incentive. Secondly, high artists are not threatened by AI art models. They can only generate ideas that already exist, because the prompter must prompt for the idea. High art is about creating new ideas. Third, it is mostly folk artists, the people who do furry commissions, who are threatened, because they are basically just illustrators. There isn't really a lot of "art" in it.

    Simply put, IT support will employ 0 human beings in the next couple years. Company IT depts will reduce in size by like 75%. Most jobs around maintenance and updating of software are out too. So if your job involves fixing things or making incremental upgrades to software... learn a new skill. A bit after that, human's will never write a line of code ever again, and software engineering will be a thing of the past.

    Soon after, humans will no longer be the ones prompting the AI to develop new software.

    The average person's economic intuitions are moronic bordering delusional.

    For instance, people tend to ignore inflation because they don't think it has anything to do with increased wages.

    In this case, people think there is a maximum number of jobs that need doing and once they're all filled anyone else will just be left unemployed, so they whine about immigrants and automation. In reality jobs being filled creates wealth and wealth creates more work, it's how it's always worked. Agriculture has been thoroughly automated in first world countries and now a tiny fraction of people are farmers. In the past, practically everyone was. This is the equivalent of going back in time to the 1700s and telling farmers they'll be enormously more wealthy in the future and there'll be far less demand for farmers. You couldn't explain what half the fricking shit people do these days is to them, nor how they make so much money relative to him when they don't even produce anything edible.

      money is paid through labor. no need for labor means no money flowing around. absent some sort of new economic system that just gives people money to do stuff (This is incredibly bad for everyone in charge) the velocity of money will continue to slow.
