    I wonder who the author thinks "we" are that we would have any say in the matter. People are a cost, offset against profits. That's all we are to the corporate machine that controls pretty much everything and "we" will be replaced whenever it is cost effective feasable to do so.
    Bye bye checkout girl, hello self checkout. Bye bye manager, hello AI.

    If I had to guess, I would say that checkout girl will be replaced much sooner than manager :)

    They already are being replaced. Regular computer systems replace manual workers all the time. If you go to Walmart in the evening, 1 real checkout girl, 15 automated checkouts. It doesn't seem to occur to these corporates when they replace people with technology that 15 less jobs is 15 less wages to be spent in the economy on their products and services.
    Management is a little different, its tasks are not so repetitive so not so easily replaced by computer systems but they will be and that is the real future of AI in the workplace.
    We spend centuries building a society that requires everyone to have a job for it to function, then greed steps in and says let's replace those jobs with technology.

    This happened at my local store shortly after Walmart announced they were raising the minimum starting wage. Assumed the self-checkout bit was previously corp. planned and approved to offset those wage increases. You will never beat the corps. when it comes to profits. ~ Removed Political OT Remarks ~

    Anyway, I read the AI article in my morning's newspaper. All like stuff reminds me of a sci-fi book I read a few decades ago. It was about the last human on earth. Society delegated everything to machines. This caused society to get so lazy, they stopped maintaining the machines. Of course, everything stopped working which caused everyone to cease to exist; except for this poor SOB.

    It depends on how they're used
