ChatGPT creator says AI advocates are fooling themselves if they think the technology is only going to be good for workers: ‘Jobs are definitely going to go away’

Posted by in categories: economics, employment, robotics/AI

Generative artificial intelligence technology such as ChatGPT could boost productivity for many workers in the years ahead. But some people are likely to lose their jobs in the process.

That’s according to Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT. Altman said in June that AI’s development could provide the “most tremendous leap forward” for people’s quality of life. But he also said in March it’d be “crazy not to be a little afraid of AI” and its potential to create” disinformation problems or economic shocks.”

Novel ‘toggle-switch’ could lead to more versatile quantum processors with clearer outputs

Posted by in categories: computing, employment, quantum physics

What good is a powerful computer if you can’t read its output? Or readily reprogram it to do different jobs? People who design quantum computers face these challenges, and a new device may make them easier to solve.

The device, introduced by a team of scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), includes two superconducting quantum bits, or , which are a quantum computer’s analog to the logic bits in a classical computer’s processing chip. The heart of this new strategy relies on a “toggle switch” device that connects the qubits to a circuit called a “readout resonator” that can read the output of the qubits’ calculations.

This toggle switch can be flipped into different states to adjust the strength of the connections between the qubits and the readout resonator. When toggled off, all three elements are isolated from each other. When the switch is toggled on to connect the two qubits, they can interact and perform calculations. Once the calculations are complete, the toggle switch can connect either of the qubits and the readout resonator to retrieve the results.

AI Taking Jobs Could Benefit Economy, Says Marc Andreessen: ‘It’s A Process Of Change And People Get Freaked Out’

Posted by in categories: economics, employment, robotics/AI

Entrepreneur and venture capitalist Marc Andreessen is among the many people speaking out about the opportunities and risks of artificial intelligence and the growth of ChatGPT. The comments from Andreessen come as valuations have risen for artificial intelligence stocks.

What Happened: Fresh off his report called “Why AI will save the world,” Andreessen shared more details on the opportunities for artificial intelligence during a recent podcast appearance.

Andreessen argued that AI could save the world, a bold claim that includes looking at the religion of sorts of the AI movement.

Americans are embracing flexible work—and they want more of it

Posted by in categories: employment, transportation

The results of the American Opportunity Survey reflect sweeping changes in the US workforce, including the equivalent of 92 million workers offered flexible work, 80 million workers engaged in flexible work, and a large number of respondents citing a search for flexible work as a major motivator to find a new job.

Competition for top performers and digital innovators demands that employers understand how much flexibility their talent pool is accustomed to and expects. Employers are wise to invest in technology, adapt policies, and train employees to create workplaces that integrate people working remotely and on-site (without overcompensating by requiring that workers spend too much time in video meetings). The survey results identify obstacles to optimal performance that underscore a need for employers to support workers with issues that interfere with effective work. Companies will want to be thoughtful about which roles can be done partly or fully remotely—and be open to the idea that there could be more of these than is immediately apparent. Employers can define the right metrics and track them to make sure the new flexible model is working.

At a more macro level, a world in which millions of people no longer routinely commute has meaningful implications for the commercial core in big urban centers and for commercial real estate overall. Likewise, such a world implies a different calculus for where Americans will live and what types of homes they will occupy. As technology emerges that eliminates the residual barriers to more distributed and asynchronous work, it could become possible to move more types of jobs overseas, with potentially significant consequences.
