Automation is definitely changing the world we live in. While I believe that humanity has the capacity to use it to really create a fully automated luxury utopia, I think having such a deeply entrenched greed-based society will likely prevent us from realizing that potential. I hope I’m wrong. Reports like this, which talk about how AI can be used to predict when an employee is thinking about leaving really catch my attention. If used wisely, this software could be a powerful tool for finding dissatisfaction and inequity in businesses and root out fundamental problems. However, in a country where even bathroom access laws are skirted and whistleblower protections are trampled on, I think it’s more likely that technology like this will be used to harm the employee rather than help them. Tech like this is coming, so we need to think about and create laws for it now. What do you think?
