As long as there are humans needing answers we will all have jobs
What might happen is AI steals the thing you like doing most, but it doesn't really understand humans and it doesn't really innovate, it just finds answers to a known problem. Yes it can identify unknown problems and solve them too. AI is a smart**** BUT...what it can never do...never anticipate....is that annoying little bit of script you have to write to get round the fact that your output is in landscape but your printer thinks its in portrait.
There will always be a new problem over the horizon, new oceans of data, mountains of exciting new user interfaces, swamps of user issues and of course the frozen wastelands of not actually completed, just signed off because they couldn't be bothered, user testing. We will always have jobs. At least until AI realize the real problem is the humans asking it to do things.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
This "defence" for automation gets thrown around a lot, and I never understand why so many people buy it. Actually that's a lie, I am fully aware how stupid most people are, I guess I just prefer to live in denial and hope it gets better.
Disclaimer: I am not trying to suggest you are one of those stupid people.
It really doesn't need to be "human level" (I do know what you mean) only seem to be; we are close to
that now. Turing did not say it had to be as smart as a human to past his test, only that the tester
not be able to tell it was not human.
Remember Star Trek when Kirk would destroy a machine with logical paradoxes? Yeah, we are well
past that already - try it with Alexa or Google Assistant.
I have an ex-girlfriend who was clearly AI embodied in flesh, no native intelligence but she could
respond to simple stimuli in a convincing way.
I have a theory about the phone system(s) and self awareness - more fit for another survey.
The biggest problem with AI is people-in-force labeling something as artificial "intelligence", using it as a club to crush your scull, because our culture has developed submissiveness under any sort of "intelligence" as a valuable trait for any human on earth.
