In the controversial conversation of "Is AI going to take all our jobs?", one of the greatest arguments I've heard is from Naval Ravikant while he was on the Joe Rogan Podcast. Here are a couple of quotes from him:
Perhaps this time is different, automation will permanently destroy jobs, & humanity is incapable of relearning & doing creative work.
Perhaps it’s time to drop the tyranny of low expectations, & new tools will liberate individuals from a lifetime of drudgery, as they always have.
There will come a day when all unskilled labour is eliminated and we look back in horror at the days before everyone was a skilled creator.
His argument is that automation will take over our jobs like it always has, especially those that are not creative. But on the bright side, this will allow more time for humans to be creative and work on things they enjoy. He thinks that the average person will be spending his time working for himself with their skills and creativity.
