The reason I'm not afraid of an AI taking my job is, that they actually think "you bought a bed recently, we recommend you a second one"
actually no, that's just poorly trained and modeled AI (which may or may not include Amazon at the time of writing), a good AI would KNOW that users tend not to buy more beds after buying a bed based off historical evidence that trumps the usual trend of users buying items similar to items they recently bought.

It's amazing that as our society invents robots, machine learning, AI, automation, etc. we still require everyone to work more than their parents and get paid less for it. At this rate, our children will be even poorer than us, as we build spaceships and space bases.
@Kender no bro, the PRODUCTIVITY of the average worker has gone up as well. Mostly due to poor social policies / degradation of unions. You could be worth $500 an hour, no company will pay you that if you have someone else willing to do the same job for $15

its human nature. we have been greedy since the very day homo sapiens were created. now, big powerful people, the "one percent" of the world, controlls basically every aspect of our lives, and more jobs being automated means less money they have to pay to their workers, so they get richer. im not angry at them, its just the way life works. but, if less people work for them, it also means they have less customers since the people who have no jobs are too poor to buy stuff. if only there was a world in which everything was free, and robots and AI would do every job on the planet. i mean, think about it, if automation takes over every job on the planet, they would not need to be paid, so free time for everybody. robots will fix the robots, and create more advanced tech. but now, in the present, this is only in our imaginations.

Define poor. I don't know what the hell it means anymore.
The best way I've learned to rebel against that is to get out of their cycle of money and hustle culture and exploitation. Get some land, put a mobile home on it, raise livestock and grow your own food. Instead of working to increase the amount of money you make, reduce your dependence on money all together

1950s science-fiction told me that we should be all united as a species by now, that we´re listening to the scientists and strive for a better future among the stars. Machines helped us get rid of work altogether and resources are distributed evenly so nobody goes hungry and can enjoy their own time as they wish. How naive, how sad it didn´t happen.

@Tomasz Rajek as long as the concept of money exists there will be people who exist simply to take advantage of that concept.

You know, something just occurred to me: Automation is going to end the need for "work" altogether, in the same way the industrial revolution eventually ended slavery. A world that has advanced automation _should be_ a world of abundance for everyone... So the problem with automation is actually cultural: We've always lived in a world of scarcity and this has ingrained in us the notion that we shouldn't constantly give valuable goods away without repayment of some sort. If we hold on to that notion, automation is going to be a curse. People will starve because they can't pay for food, despite the fact that robots will be producing literal mountains of it for free.

They won't be producing mountains of it if no one can buy it- It's called The law of supply and demand, look it up ;)

Great video, like always! However, project management tools like the one referenced may just replace resource managers.

Here's a thought: The only reason we need jobs is because we need money to buy stuff. If automation comes to a point where we can produce things ridiculously cheap, would we still need to have jobs? My point is, the industrial revolution liberated a lot of minds to pursue art and other interesting things, what if the information revolution liberated us all just to enjoy life and do the things we are interested in just because we enjoy them? I know this may sound utopic right now, but that's probably how people thought about free time before the industrial revolution.

i think you are right. I'm a designer, went to art school and now making more as a freelancer than my friends who are lawyers, engineers and even some doctors. What happened is that their parents told them to pursue respectable carriers to be successful. Education became a very profitable sector. Millions of people started graduating with reputable degrees when there is no need for that many people for those jobs. Now they have to rat race to get higher in the corporate hierarchy. My point is do what you love. Fuck the rest

I'm just seeing a future where everyone on earth has a base standard income and automation does most of the production of materials etc. Innovation and particularly hard jobs will be done by people, the amount of hours collectively worked can stay the same while population grows because people will not have to do as much. And can focus on innovation and growth more

This channel is awesome. I love your work. And, about the topic of this video: automation will, for sure, destroy a lot of workplaces and lives, a whole generation could be wiped out, the risk is true. But after this tragedy, the survivors will specialize themselves on works that no machine ever will be able to substitute - like the work of a psychologist, or that of an artist - and maybe, the humanity, freed from the hard work inside a fabric or inside a warehouse, will be less stressed and more capable to re-discover the essence of the humanity. At least, that's what i think and hope.

Well, it's true. Many if not most jobs today are for luxury. You don't really need waiters or bartenders or theme park workers for survival, only food, water, and medical are truly needed (especially in the short term) for human survival. We need those jobs not for the consumer, but for the worker who then uses their pay to buy food and the like to consume

9:57 "If fewer and fewer people have decent work, who would be doing all the consuming?" This creates an effect called the "tendency for the rate of profit to fall" and Karl Marx predicted it in the 1840's. It's why he thought the capitalist mode of production would destroy itself through automation.

@Fanrath The point where automation collapses the labor market is the point at which money loses all value. People will be forced to either seize the means of production for themselves, or starve to death. So organize with your community and buy a gun if you don't have one. And if your only method of not starving to death is wage labor, then you need a backup plan.

Had to stop midway to say your videos are getting more gorgeous by the iteration. This one is simply breathtaking. And the thought put into each animation is so deep and subtle that it's a lesson in efficiency in and of itself.

First of all, the machines could never come up with this video on their own, but of course they are duplicating and distributing it; which is why I watched it. What does that tell you about the basic difference between man and machine?

It's ok, by the time AI takes over most jobs, we would all have universal basic income subsidized by Google/Amazon/Apple/Tesla etc.

I think the problem lies less in the innovation's themselves and more how the capitalist system works. If we aren't able to naturally dismantle it upon realizing this society will likely be in a paradoxical broken state for some period of time before settling in an either utopian or completely hellish society. I'm hoping its the former though.

The real problem is economic equality. Even when taking AI and machine learning out of it. Just by being able to programm an automated machine to do your job makes me multiplicatively more efficient. And therefore, in classical economy, multiplicatively more worth and therefore getting paid increasingly more. Furthermore if the ammount of work doesn't increase fast enough - as this video is discussing - increasing more people are "unemployable" all together. Even beyond "not paying virtualy anything to the worker". It is like asking a horse to replace car for minimum food so that getting a thousand horses would be just like getting a car. It's just not going to happen. The ever increasing economic inequality and rising number of practically unemployable people are going to be MASSIVE social issues of the near future. In Europe we deal with less productive or unproductive people like elderly or handicapped by sharing our money, but marking someone as worhy of benefist for being "unemployable" would be quite... revolutionary? Universal income is obviously one of potential solutions as mentioned (I still havent watched their other video). Maybe genetic engineering will bring a solution. Maybe we drastically change our society towards less capitalistic in some ways. There are obviously also much darker scenarios.... scenarios where slavery is back.... or where less inteligent people are prevented from mating (after all that's what you do in the case of the horse metaphore I made earlier - you just don't breed as many horses)... I am quite scared of these futures and how they take hold.

More effectiveness means the same amount of work can be accomplished in less time => It's possible to introduce the "6 hour work days" concept ^^ Work less but life more. If we as a collective - not only limited to the mega rich - would stop being greedy, agreeing to pay peolle fairly and give them a better work-life-balance, there is less need to be scared of automations I think 🤔

The crazy thing is machines could already br controlling us and not even know it. We essentially let machines do our thinking for us and figure stuff out for us. Its still a form of control.

4:16 didn't age well, robots are already better at drawing than us... That's the focus of millions of smartest people right now, to teach machines to think, some of them like gpt-3 and lambda are already on par with human intelligence and the exponential growth is only begining. I am excited for the future, I just hope that humans are ready for this change, to rethink our work and values once machines do all the heavy lifting.

If we invent an AI with the ability to think for itself, feel, to imitate humans (although probably in a neurodivergent way) to the point we could mistake it for a true human, then we need to accept the independence and the birth of a new intelligent species, and welcome them as they would be equal to humans in terms of morality etc. We'd need to treat them as if they had souls inside them (and for any believer out there, it wouldn't be inconceivable at all that a human's creation gets a soul when mindless cells create a human body that gets a soul too). I do hope we will welcome the venue of AI soon enough, although I fear both AI and human reactions.

Its funny these large companies wont invest in tech to assist the human worker in doing their job more efficiently. They would rather remove the human in every instance possible.

certain defects in a software can only be found through static testing. can't automate testing that requires a person's input (knowledge, experiences, and expertise) would be awesome if manual testing becomes automated. Would probably be an advance AI tho

"Better" is a relative term when it comes to jobs. Some would consider working outside in a field, in the open air, a better job than working in a factory, pulling a lever all day. So, this is poorly worded. When all this wonderful automation eliminates nearly all the jobs, there will be no one to buy this fantastic crap.

Kursgesagt seems to forget that jobs aren't the only measure of economic activity/prosperity - there are artists, musicians, writers, performers, entertainers, social helpers, individual inventors & creators (includes social media info creaters such as DE-vid, Instagram, etc.), coaches, human organizers, etc. (the list is actually endless if one really thinks hard enough). Each one of these alternatives (to jobs) contributes to economic activity, human prosperity & human utilization. The question should not be about "will there be enough jobs?", but rather - how innovate humanity is in evolving to changing circumstances to meet their needs, regardless of what the change agent is (agrarian advances, industrialization, automatization & robotics, AI, and many more throughout the history of human evolution).

Jay Tse
Jay Tse Vor 10 Monate
​@Dahak What you mention is a major flaw of unregulated capitalism. i.e. for capitalism to survive, someone has to spend money. If people don't have money to spend (because of lack of jobs, sources of income, bad health, or a hundred other reasons), then how will the capitalists/elites be able to continue their upward trajectory ? How will automation alone increase profits if there is no/low transference of money from consumers to producers ? To ensure the money supply is stable and continues, people will need to be given money to spend (either through employment, or guaranteed livable income, or some other such scheme). Hence, you can reduce the jobs to a certain extent. But beyond that threshhold, the spillover effects will affect everyone in that shared economy. As an example, look at those countries in the world where unemployment is really high and the wealth inequality index is also very high (some that come to mind - Venezuela, North Korea, most African countries, etc.) Eventually, there may be some dystopian outcomes like you suggest, or a balance between automation/non-automation may be achieved. (BTW, I am an optimistic pessimist :) )
Dahak Vor 10 Monate
How much money can a DE-vidr make if the advertisers start paying less money because enough viewers are out of work that they aren't buying products? That is the thing with the current automation path. Unlike before where it added value and jobs, what is happening now adds value for the owners and decreases jobs and/or reduces the aggregate value of available jobs. That is a BAD thing for the current structure of the world economy. To make money you sell a thing to someone who has money for less than you made it for. Great. What happens when the customer base keeps shrinking? You make less money. That means you have less money to spend yourself so you buy less and you let go of workers supplying the old demand level, further reducing the customer base. That leads to a complete crash. You can see examples of it in the run-down towns/cities where major industries closed. Close the car plant or coal mine or ironworks and the town that grew up around that industry collapses. And we can't stop it. You can't put the technology back in the bottle. Even if you try to outlaw automation, it just delays it as the law will eventually be overturned or just ignored by the people who are already powerful (aka wealthy) enough to manipulate the system. Basically, what this means is that the current paradigm is unstable and will collapse sometime in the future. Whether that collapse is into some kind of semi-post-scarcity utopia, a dystopic hell-hole, or the complete collapse of modern civilization back to the feudal age is up to us. Also, your listed options are not going to work for everyone. Not everyone is capable of competing as a creator. For every successful artist there are hundreds of artists who end up flipping burgers, working phones, etc. And as others have said, that can all be automated. Turns out there are things our brains like more than others on average and AI can make things that meet those criteria. In a few decades the AIs will be able to pump out customized music, artwork, etc. to the tastes of subgroups of individual consumers better than the majority of human artists. A few more decades beyond that and humans will just be following the directions of the AI artists or out of the loop altogether. Why wait a year for a human author to write the sequel to that book/movie/TV show you liked? The AI can pop one out much faster and cheaper, so why bother paying a human? Sports is about the only thing that would be left, and only a tiny fraction of people can become good enough to compete there so thats not helpful.

I would say that my jobs are safe. However, houses are being 3D printed and Self driving ambulances could eliminate 1 of the 2 required medics required to staff an ambulance crew. 1 person always drives while the other works to save the life of the patient. We already have automated chest compression machines (a welcomed innovation. I don’t care if I ever have to do chest compressions again).
