Haley Groseclose's curator insight, March 6, 12:43 PM

The use of AI's are becoming a lot more common within the office. With the AI you can essentially eliminate the more "boring" aspects of an office job, but it can also take away jobs. The AI's more modern use is to predict and collect data, often getting better answers than a worker could produce. They mention in the article how there could be two outcomes when having an AI in more offices. One way could either be that the AI simply takes over the (again)boring aspects of the job, or it will take jobs altogether, not only those of a lower ranking job but of higher paid staff as well. I find the second outcome to be more likely, people tend to misjudge projects such as this and do't consider what the consequence will be.

PIRatE Lab's curator insight, August 10, 3:29 PM

An interesting compilation of terms.  Perhaps most interesting to me is the utter "out of touch" aspect of some of these terms.  Most of very human/wealthy human-centric and are likely to be niche terms at best.  Only the "anthropocene" and "mule" really seem to stretch beyond our wealthy, western lifestyles.  Nevertheless a good read to stimulate your thinking about what the future may bring.

 

Thanks to Szabolcs for posting!
