And they say AI will never take our jobs away from us. I wonder how many employees have been laid off because of this? I hope that the company compensated them very well, as it is extremely hard to lose a source of livelihood these days. If automation (as in Narrow AI) are already taking over our jobs now, what more when the AGIs and ASIs arrived? We'd all be doomed.

If you read Graeber's Bullshit Jobs, it seems like even as things are automated away it's clear that meaningless jobs will be invented to replace them.

There's also a short essay that came before the book if you want to just read that. And somewhere in f/audiobooks is an audiobook version.
