non human employees - artificial intelligence replacing accountants & medical laboratory technicians by 2026
data centers replacing mundane public service jobs in government.
just some of the proposals put forward at the Mobile World Congress MWC Barcelona.  26 - 29 February 2024 just ended.
group I know of attended the mobile technology convention to get inside information on corporate communication service providers plans for AI moving forward.
one proposal is replacing phone app's with personal AI assistants. 100 app's rolled into one.

I have been involved with some pretty large medical laboratories.  We have used robotics for a very long time.  As for AI replacing medical technologists, that will be a very long time coming in decent laboratories.   None of the techs I have worked with over 30+ years could be replaced by a language-model AI as we have it today. 

Chat GPT may be able to describe with a degree of accuracy what contaminated platelets look like (I haven't tried), but can it identify a suspect bag of them at the time it is released to the nurse?  Can it tell the difference between cultures on microbiology plates as fast as humans.  Can you as a director describe a change in procedures that goes for positive-logic to negative-logic to your chief techs and them implement it in a lab with 100 techs without you doing all the housekeeping?

Who will be liable for its failures?  Will it carry malpractice insurance?  Will Medicare/CLIA (USA) recognize it as a valid provider?

EDIT:  BTW, in the US, we make a distinction between medical laboratory technicians and technologists.  The latter predominated in my laboratories.

How about replacing all the bullshitters speaking in those conventions with AI first?

@SW

That would depend on the convention.  At scientific sessions, oral, on-stage presentations were generally unpublished research.  That might be a problem with a language-based model, if the researchers had done an adequate literature search before hand.  Now, as for helping with literature searches, I can see utility.

As for non-science sessions, most presentations are for marketing, and I doubt an AI presentation would get the same attentions as a pretty woman in a tight black skirt.

I would say that if business can replace employees, it will ... we are just cogs, and expensive ones at that. I couldn't say *when* we will all get replaced, but most likely we will.

Off-shoring, manufacturing automation, etc. ...

Best plan and do everything you can to prepare ... mortgage-free, off-grid, investing ... whatever it takes to not be living paycheck to paycheck, and to avoid such an end to work being a disaster. Do this for your kids as well ...

Only payback I can see is when all "human resources" are laid off and gone, then perhaps HR will get laid off and be gone as well.

ChatGPT is a very capable tool.

I am only using the free version, but was able to obtain valid source code in different languages I am not literate.

Also, it has been a great aid to write various kinds of documents.

I am sure that certain jobs will cease to exist, but on the other handnew jobs will emerge: AI handlers.

To obtain the source code I wanted, I had to interact with ChatGPT. I think that without training, most people would not be able to get successful code.

What are some uses that AI at its present state is not appropriate to put into use ?
ChatGPT

As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, there are certain areas where the use of AI at its present state may be deemed inappropriate or poses ethical, social, or practical challenges. Keep in mind that advancements in AI may have occurred since then, and societal perspectives on AI applications can evolve. Here are some areas where caution is often advised:

    Critical Decision-Making in Sensitive Areas:
        Legal and Judicial Systems: Fully automated decision-making in legal matters, such as sentencing or determining guilt, may lack the necessary human oversight and understanding of nuanced situations.
        Healthcare: AI should be used cautiously in making critical medical decisions without human input, as healthcare involves complex ethical considerations and personal sensitivities.

    Autonomous Weapons Systems:
        The deployment of fully autonomous weapons raises ethical concerns and the potential for unintended consequences, including the loss of human control over decision-making in conflict situations.

    Surveillance and Privacy:
        Widespread use of AI for surveillance purposes, especially with facial recognition technology, raises concerns about privacy infringement and potential misuse by authorities.

    Job Replacement and Economic Disruption:
        Rapid implementation of AI in certain industries without proper consideration for the impact on jobs and workers can lead to economic disparities and social unrest.

    Bias and Fairness Issues:
        If AI systems are trained on biased data, they can perpetuate and even exacerbate existing social biases. Using such systems in critical areas like hiring or lending may lead to unfair outcomes.

    Emotional and Sensitive Interactions:
        AI in emotionally sensitive areas, such as therapy or counseling, may lack the necessary understanding and empathy required for human connection.

    Unsupervised Learning in Unpredictable Environments:
        Allowing AI systems to operate in dynamic and unpredictable environments without proper supervision may lead to unintended and potentially harmful consequences.

    Deepfakes and Misinformation:
        AI-generated deepfakes and other synthetic media can be used to create highly convincing false information, posing risks to personal and public trust.

It's important to note that as AI technology evolves, efforts are being made to address these challenges through the development of ethical guidelines, regulations, and ongoing research. Nonetheless, careful consideration and human oversight are crucial in determining the appropriate use of AI technologies.

One has to consider that ChatGPT is conditioned to be woke and socialist. Hence the answer: " Rapid implementation of AI in certain industries without proper consideration for the impact on jobs and workers can lead to economic disparities and social unrest."

Jobs have been replaced in the past over and over. Where are all the "photo technicians" where you went with your roll of negatives? Going further back in time, where are all the "calculators"? They got replaced with a machine you put in your pocket! Where are the telephone operators?

The real problem with too soon a job replacement with AI systems is that these AI systems have been trained on data produced by the people that are laid off. Nobody knows right now, what happens when AI is further trained with data produced by the AI instead of humans. Some fear that the AI quality goes down, others believe it won't affect the quality.

But this uncertainty can put AI down the drain and it would be a shame if that happend.

I understand those against AI: every change is difficult and myself I do wonder occasionally why we don't do a "feature freeze" on human kind development and just keep living next year exactly as we did last year. It wasn't that bad afterall, right? Well, the answer is: what about all the jons in R&D? What about the need for economy growth to pay interest on loans? The truth is, we HAVE to evolve and AI just happens to be the next disruptive technology in line, that will change the world like fire, the wheel, the steam engine, electricity, the car, telephony, radio, TV, computers, mobile phones, internet, to name a few. All made jobs redundant, but at the same time, created many new jobs.
