To Work and to Love

Freud may have gotten a bad rap over the years, but he was basically right about a lot of things. I thought of this when I read an article (link below) on AI.

I’m not an expert on AI. I’ve only listened to arguments and thoughts of those who are. Yet, I’ve been interested.

CEOs have their reasons for adopting AI. Whatever one thinks, Their job is to run a great business.

Skills are becoming obsolete at a fast rate due to AI. Is this a problem? Yes.

Most people know I’ve supported UBI for quite a while. They may not have noticed that I haven’t spoken about it lately. I’ve been focused on psychology research.

One thing that Freud said is that everyone needs two things: to work and to love. I believe he’s right. That’s why I read, research and think even though I haven’t been able to hold a job due to disability. That’s why I’ve loved fiercely.

I don’t know if companies will tell us the real reason they are adopting AI. I’ll probably never know. But it is concerning. I’m not exactly sure what will happen to us and our health, but it won’t be happy.

We are used to adopting new technologies. We have been doing it forever. But at their best, technology assists us to achieve happiness and health. In the case of AI, that’s not always clear.

I support new technology because I believe they can be assistive to the sick, elderly and disabled. That’s why I maintain a website. When I can think and work and write, it helps me.

But for so many other things, technology is not exactly great. And with with corporations adopting AI, we will have skills we cannot use.

I encourage you to read this article and think about it for yourself.
