Questionable content, possibly linked

Luddite AI

I’m still crunching through some other quotes on the matter, but wanted to save Cory Doctorow’s bit about automation being uplifting from here:

“But automation isn’t solely disempowering: it also lifts people up. Today, thanks to automated machining tools like CNC mills, someone with very little training can do a lot of fine machining for themselves, without having to bother a skilled machinist. Democratizing access to the means of production isn’t intrinsically anti-labor – it’s only bad for workers when the bounty of automation is disproportionally al­located to a small number of capital owners, and not workers.”

I don’t see why this same thing doesn’t potentially apply to AI generated content.


Telling is fine
