      People who don’t like paying for labor declares new technology will finally let them automate people away. More at 11.

      I remember decades ago when I was working at mcds as a greasy teenager when they told me that I only had a couple years left there, that our jobs would probably be automated soon. That stores without humans at all were just around the corner.

      Any engineer who has worked with AI directly knows what it’s great at (a slim number of finite tasks), what it appears to be great at (many many tasks), and what it is not good at (everything else). Corporate America sees no distinction.

    Great, so now when the ML algo locks me out of my account, I’ll have to talk to an AI about why it false-positived.

    The future is bleak for fiat.

    Betterment/Weathfront does a lot of this already, but without “AI”. Its just algorithms. It sounds the same…but its really not.
