research has always existed, but in earlier times you were expected to memorize more information, and to retain it for longer periods of time. Now research is done so easily. you don't have to drive to the library and check out a big stack of books. You just ctrl T and type some shit and get an answer fairly quickly. This disincentivizes rote memorization of large bodies of knowledge. >Why do techbros keep claiming that everyday common things are novel because AI, even though it has nothing to do with AI?
1. not a techbro. i work in tech because that's where i got a job, not because i'm passionate about it or think it's the solution to everything
2. i wasn't claiming research is novel
3. i wasn't attributing anything to AI, if you had more carefully read my post, I in fact talked about how my previous job was automated because my bosses assumed it could be done by AI when it couldn't>Everyone in tech fake his job.
not really>Why do you think basic app companies need 10000 people?
our company has less than 200 employees, including people in decidedly non-tech work, like transport and manual labor>Why do you think when a tech company run out of money they fire 50% of their work force and it don't change their output?
well that's the thing, they didn't fire me, they just moved me from something I knew how to do to something i don't. They assumed my job was automated when it wasn't.
