The AI revolution is happening. I don't know how successful it will be, but regardless, people are trying to get AI into everything. That might be good or bad in various situations, but it has people worried about AI. This piece looks at a survey from the American Staffing Association that says 47% of people somewhat or strongly agree that their job is replaceable by automation with an AI. There is more data to dig into, but that's a lot of people who worry about their jobs.
Most people do think that tech is generally a good thing. I do find that many of us in tech, and some other industries, are buried in work. There's never a shortage and we could easily work 60, 70, or more hours a week and not complete everything. The flip side of that is a lot of work doesn't necessarily need to be done now and could be delayed, so I think it's hard to decide whether we need more help or more patience.
The various places I've seen AI used are often helping people get started or unblock their creativity struggles. Recently someone posted this link on some prompts a person had used to get moving. I found a few of these possibly helpful. Not writing, but maybe having an AI proof something, or even get me started in some new area. I worry about book summaries, or even text summaries, as I'm not always confident the AI understands which pieces I might find important. However, that's also a danger with humans. I've seen no shortage of people asked to summarize something for others. When I understand the subject well, I sometimes disagree with another's summary (or think it's just plain wrong).
I don't think AIs are a big danger to many people's employment. I do think that as people learn to use AIs are assistants we might find that we grow or enhance staff less. We might also find that the 10x engineer knows how to engage 10 AIs to help them get things done, especially simple, busy work. The low performers will likely be those working in the same way in the future as they do today. That might not threaten your job, but it might mean lower bonuses and less opportunities in the future if you can't adapt your skills to this new world.
