AI Will Take All Of Our Jobs & Potentially Pose An Existential Crisis on Humanity | #32 w/ Claudio Fuentes
We live in a world where the only constant is change. And the rate of change itself is accelerating. Things are moving really fast in this increasingly exponential world.
With the exponential boom in AI, machines are becoming faster and more intelligent than ever. These advances in AI will bring an unprecedented world of abundance but AI is also likely to cause massive disruption. As AI continues to get smarter and more capable, it will continue to replace many of today’s jobs.
This brings a lot of interesting questions that we explore in this conversation
- How fast are things moving and what is causing them to move so fast?
- How serious is the risk of job displacement? What jobs are likely to be displaced?
- How concerned should we be? What can we do about it?
- What will happen when AI is 100x, 1,000x, or a million times smarter than us? Will we be able to control AI?
I explore this topic with Claudio Fuentes, the co-founder of Leap (tryleap.ai). Leap is an API service that allows any developer to generate AI images and fine tune AI models in minutes. Claudio is a third time founder working at the cutting edge of AI. He and I both work our of an incubator named Founder’s Inc.
This is an intentionally dystopian analysis at the impact that AI can have on us. I am generally optimistic about tech and the future but I think it’s important to understand the risks so that we can proactively take the safety measures needed to make sure we don’t create something that could put human existence at risk.
