Young people and AI robotics

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.

      You think welding is safe?

      Even if it were millions of welders, HVAC techs, and plumbers will drive their own wages to dogshit just off supply of labor. Don't you understand that transferring skills doesn't actually solve the problem here? All it does is cause a supply glut in other fields. We don't need 80 million blue collar trade schoolers anon.

        You actually do. It’s just that currently Chinese blue collar workers are doing all the work for you but if China ever moves to close its trade surplus with the West then we will have to produce our own clothing, medicine and electronics and all the underlying infrastructure which comes with it. More likely China will seek to close the surplus by purchasing commodities, especially metals like gold, silver, copper, etc. so prepare for a future where the cheapest T-shirt in Walmart is $75 and you work 6 day shifts in a gold mine.

        Robots are too expensive rn i weld for 32 n hr and im comfy. Try shipping a welding robot that can climb all over shit in and out of holes welding shit. Some day robots will replace everyone but the salesman selling them.

    Only maybe when a project was 100% created by an AI. So it can work on it and add more functionalities. But 100% of projects were created by humans with shitty code. There’s no way a machine can fulfil a complex task on an existing project unless it’s sentient. And by this time there won’t be any job left for humans.

      Open up Chat GPT 4, top left corner click to search for GPTs, find the one called Code and ask it to do something in whatever language. It will spit out quality code. This is just the first fricking inning, anon. AI has been around for about five minutes and this is where we are already. Friend of mine is a writer, got laid off last week along with 90% of the company, first mass layoffs they've had in 25 years.

      Shit hasn't even gotten started yet either, that's the craziest part.

        I’m sure you don’t work in IT. Most people who claim this on social networks don’t. I know it can write good independent code. But you can’t ask it to work on a whole project coded by humans and add functionalities / fix bugs. It’s simply too complex for a machine right now. It would need to be at least on par with the human brain, which is far from the case. And when it is, you can say goodbye to humans.

          I'll 2nd this. AI might make a blinking light code (which would seem complex to non IT people) but there's no fully coded by AI program on the market today despite the tools being available for years.

          Why? That's even stupider than calling everyone else stupid. You aren't inventing new things. You are using proven methods to acheive outcomes. Input. Output. That's what you do. But you do it slooooowly. At best you will be a fancy proofreader.

          Has AI written a good novel yet? Created any original, groundbreaking art? Coded something revolutionary? No, all it can do so far is spit out combinations of what humans already did

          But it does it quickly. And it does it for free. I hate to break it to you but the past decade hasn't exactly been the apex of human creativity.

            It has, though. Most people get easily confused by this. You see what's on TV or popular online and think "wow this is such trash compared to the greatest achievements of a thousand years ago." But that's mostly about how ignorant you are. For every million pieces of trash out there, there's a gem being made that'll be that thing that's still good a thousand years from now. You just haven't got the perspective of the thousand years between to filter all the trash for you. There are more people with more leisure producing more art than ever before. Most of it was trash a thousand years ago, too. You just can't tell because the only things that have ever been served to you on a silver platter are the things that, a thousand years later, are still worthwhile. Go learn more about what was being produced at the same time as whatever you think of as the apex of human creativity. There was just as much trash back then as there is today.

              Kek, you types are so certain about everything. Just as much trash in the past? There's more content created in one year than was created in the entire human history, pretty soon it'll be every day, every hour, every min, every second.

            You don’t understand what you’re talking about. AI is good as an assistant. It can write independent code but can’t understand the complexity of a project. It’s like a new member of your team but you will never be able to explain to him how the whole thing works.

      As long as it has a data set and hundreds of millions of people prompting that data set it's technically sentient.

        have fun in second-gen recursion. You will always need a pool of high-skill creatives to base AI models off of, and they can't practice their art for free. there is a compromise, and right now the market is going to all-in on AI because it sounds nifty and drives investment.

            and what is it trained on? art. who made that art? artists. who is training the models? not artists. All to replace artists. And you will reach a creative cliff that you cannot cross without new input, but all artists are replaced. now what?

              So definitely the input output process needs to be improved/simplified. But in terms of potential output from that data that has already been collected to this point and stored. You're already talking about essentially almost every thought a human has ever had, basically every variation of visual art every human has ever drawn. Data is the least of the problems. OpenAI would have made sure this problem was solved before you got ChatGPT public side. These people are very smart.

                At this time, AI isn't creative, it's a randomizer and humanity is the filter that both limits its input and output, and the model's viability is entirely at the mercy of the model maker and the end user. Until that is solved, human-made art will be necessary, and as artists wise up to the reality of what is going on, they will watermark and 'burn' their art so models can't use them without extensively more work or a big fat check from what will likely be the industry to mint the first trillionaire.

    Wage stratification is over. Within 5 years all jobs will be acquired through a gig work app that pays min wage. Once you hit subsistence for the month you will get no more jobs. Min wage will be a bowl of rice per day and extra dedicated employees (ones who work for free on their off time) will earn one pound of wienerroach protein per month. Yay immigration!!! Yay AI!!!

    Depends on the field. The medical field is doing a lot less with AI than you think it is. It's a useful tool towards streamlining workflows. But that's actually creating more opportunities rather than narrowing them. Other industries will follow suit. Here's the simple thing: a labor pool exists. That means people willing to do jobs for money. As long as someone can figure out a way to exploit those people, by paying them less revenue than they generate, they are going to have jobs. Maybe they won't be support teams on phones once AI can solve the issues that come across a helpdesk. But someone'll figure out something else to do with that labor that generates a profit. Old jobs will go away. But new ones will appear.

    The third time I'll explain the problem.
    The more you do for someone, the less they will do for themselves.
    With regards to AI, it potentially thinks for you. It's not just the potential to automate tasks, it's the potential to solve problems that require cognition. You will think less as a result. This trend will continue. 99.99% of people will use AI to make their lives easier and obsolete themselves. The problem isn't AI, it's human nature.

    >What the hell are young people studying that is likely to be safe from AI and robotics disruption?

    The real worrying thing is the most powerful people in the world do not give a frick about the average Joe. You either unseat them or get them to change their horrible ways (non-violently in both instances) or we're going back to the stone age brother. Your choice.
