The real impacts of AI are in the military and infrastructure “arenas”. It may very well be that some jobs will thrive with an AI component but grunt work and simple repetitive type jobs will absolutely be decimated by the robotics /AI tandem. Think military and power systems , water, electricity…financial systems.
We harbor serious trepidations regarding who controls AI in the future globally. The control of key infrastructure and military applications in theory AND in stark reality is at stake going forward and we pray China does not get the upper hand here as if she does, WE ARE DOOMED to be subserviant.
The ability of ANY foreign power to “turn off” the computerized systems that have evolved to control almost every facet of our everyday lives is a frightening reality to consider. PRAY it can be contained.
