AI is just another step in automation that had been seen started back in the early '70s.

We're still live & kicking

Now of course one has to consider the extremity view... one which has often been put in front of us in many historical SciFi Movies... the one that suggests we have reached over-population - and what to do about it...

Those "vaccinations" could be one hell of a way of achieving that goal.

A company flogging AI stuff release survey results suggesting that folk love AI stuff.

Hmmm.

-Currently, more than half (56%) of office workers say they are using AI as a part of their daily job responsibilities.

Because it says so on the box? Most office workers can't reboot their own PCs, never mind understand how their software works.

AI isn't magic. The term is now being applied to just about everything in tech, whether it uses fuzzy logic algorithms or just matches text. Just stick the 'AI' label on the side and increase sales.

And let's not forget those 'AI' routines that shut down gardening groups on Facebook that mentioned 'hoes'.

Employees won't be so chipper when their bosses replace them with some cheaper 'AI' software.

Sacked employees can take some consolation from the knowledge that most software is simply not as good as human staff. So by replacing them, their bosses are damaging their business. It is used because it is cheaper, works enough of the time (even if 'enough' is less than 50%), and can be blamed for everything. How can you sue a company when the software was responsible?

We really need a legal requirement that the level of AI can be user-controlled, allowing us to turn it off if we wish too.

Especially on Google Search, where it seems to be particularly lousy.
