#1 TWO MUST KNOW NEWS STORIES
BREAKING NEWS: Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak, Andrew Yang and more signed open letter to pause training AI models more powerful than GPT-4
They state that there should be planning and management in using advanced AI. That is not happening, as the letter says that in “recent months [we] have seen AI labs locked in an out-of-control race to develop and deploy powerful digital minds that no one – not even their creators – can understand, predict, or reliably control.”
The letter touches on:
How powerful AI should be developed at the point that it is manageable
The question: should we let machines flood information channels with “propaganda and untruth?”
That AI labs should pause and collaborate to be safer with more oversight
That AI research “should be refocused on making today’s powerful, state-of-the-art systems more accurate, safe, interpretable, transparent, robust, aligned, trustworthy, and loyal.”
Research suggests 300M+ jobs will be replaced by AI
You probably need a robot. Multinational corporations definitely need a robot. Rather, millions of robots.
It’s estimated that hundreds of millions of jobs will be “lost” to AI.
AI will alter nearly 80% of all jobs. Half of the roles that require a college degree will be affected.
OpenAI, OpenResearch, and the University of Pennsylvania published a paper that examined how AI will affect jobs. Higher paying jobs are most threatened, which is a fascinating shift from a century ago when it was lower paying factory jobs that were quickly replaced with machines.

Predicted is that workers will see 50% of tasks impacted.
Goldman Sachs also published a report that examines AI’s impact across jobs. 46% of administrative tasks could be automated, but only 6% of construction jobs.
CEO of the Resolution Foundation think tank Tosten Bell told BBC news,
"That's not to say that AI won't disrupt the way we work - but we should focus too on the potential living-standards gains from higher-productivity work and cheaper-to-run services, as well as the risk of falling behind if other firms and economies better adapt to technological change."
