Nice of you to acknowledge the part that is actually from the very, very short ...like 500 word article is the most outrageous part of my post.

While you give the article credit for predicting the downfall of civilization.   Roll Eyes

I am not aware of any article, stupid. The downfall of civilization is pretty much a given at this point.

I know.  Expecting a nutbag as brilliant, well read, cultured and sophisticated as yourself to wade through a biblical 500 word article that you're spending a lot of time insisting is totally credible and authentic is a little much.

My bad.

Queshank


Where did I say anything about that article, idiot?

And don't misquote me, this time.

Well alright!  Now we're getting somewhere.

You're aware "The Terminator" wasn't a documentary, right?

So ... you admit you regularly jump into threads about topics you haven't bothered to educate yourself on?

Can I quote you on that?

We've moved on to N in the thesaurus people!

Would that be a fart nutbag?  A "nebulous piece of shit?"  That's a fart isn't it?

Is a fart a worse insult than shit?

Fascinating. 

Queshank


OMG, I should stop using polysyllabic words or Qtip will have a conniption!

Sorry asshole for putting what little brain cells you have under so much strain!

Since when does one have to have read all the articles on a subject to competently talk about it?

If you believe AI will be the end of jobs based on how revolutionary AI is, you also have to hold true two other premises which have nothing to do with AI.

The first premise you have to believe is that humans will get to the point where they have no unmet needs. It is assumed that we will become so wealthy that we can meet all of our wants,  to the extent that no new wants are possible.

The second premise is that resources become so abundant that cost no longer becomes a limiting factor. Everything that can be automated and accomplished with AI will be.

Regardless of how awesome AI is, the secondary premises you have to smuggle in implicitly to get to the conclusion that this will be the end of work are by no means self evident. And indeed I would go so far as to say they are impossible.

Human need and want has no limit. The richer we become the more we want to meet our lesser needs. And that means that there will always be a gap between what we have and what we want. If you take seriously the comments of those who predict an end to work, it is almost like they envision AI replacing human labor anywhere and everywhere human labor is used, without concern for cost, profit and loss.

It is as if robotics, AI, and all the supporting capital was super abundant.

You're aware that you are far from being adequately educated, right?

Neither was "Short Circuit" .. 

An honest discussion would lie somewhere in the middle.

I would say when you jump into a thread discussing the contents of a very, very short ... like 500 word article ... it's kind of obligatory.

But hey, y'know ... I'm kind of a stickler for knowing wtf I'm talking about.  Not everybody is .. I'm not judging.
