Take programmers as an example to explore why you and I will eventually lose our jobs due to AI


Unemployment crisis under the AI ​​wave: Are we really ready?

With the rapid development of artificial intelligence technology, a question that cannot be ignored has gradually emerged: Will you and I become unemployed because of AI? This problem is not groundless, but a real challenge facing each of us.

Some people may think that AI is still just a tool and has not really replaced human work. However, what we must face is that AI tools are already significantly improving our work efficiency. When individual work efficiency increases, it will inevitably squeeze the job opportunities of others. Taking programmers as an example, some basic programming tasks can now be fully performed by AI. This is not limited to code writing, AI is also penetrating deeper and deeper into the field of content creation. From generating dubbing and manuscripts to screen production, and even crawling, summarizing and uploading news content, AI is gradually encroaching on the work areas of traditional content creators.

Faced with this current situation, we cannot help but ask: Is there really any essential difference between human creation and content randomly generated by statistical models? When AI can easily master Go, an intellectual game that was once regarded as containing the avenues of heaven and earth, can we still hold on to the last line of defense for art and creation?

What’s even more serious is that with the continuous advancement of AI technology, can human needs keep up with the development of productivity? History tells us that when productivity increases, demand increases accordingly. However, in the AI ​​era, does this law still apply? When more and more of our productivity is used to meet some bizarre needs that actually have little value, should we reflect on: Is this development path really sustainable?

Facing the unemployment crisis caused by AI, we are not helpless. Some forward-looking companies and individuals are already exploring solutions. For example, OpenAI’s CEO began focusing on the issue of Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) shortly after founding the company. He believes that as technology advances and traditional jobs are eliminated, we will see some form of basic income at a national level at some point in the future. Such a system design may provide us with a buffer period to adapt to new work environments and challenges.

In short, the AI ​​era has arrived, and it brings both opportunities and challenges. We cannot avoid problems, but should face them bravely and actively seek solutions. Only in this way can we remain invincible in the AI ​​wave. Welcome to exchange views in the comment area and discuss how to deal with the unemployment crisis caused by AI.
