Just read something about Barclays director stating that if your work is with a keyboard your future of employment is not that good (automation)

There's a whole bunch of creative jobs that use keyboards. AI isn't anywhere near good enough yet...

The article(in dutch) mentioned they were getting rid of half of their people. About 20000 itiw.

I wonder how fast ai wil be going. It might affect things like loans if your job skills are in the to be automated sector.

They are really spending enormous amounts of resources into turning the silicon chips into human like brains.

There are often times when I've wandered exactly how much longer will I last in my current job / web design and development in general.

It's a keyboard job and there's so many CMS things out there that it's genuinely tougher to be a freelance webdesigner these days. Particularly for smaller businesses and start-ups.

Then I'll remember that there's this thing called experience which is always going to be vital when it comes to dev / design work.

You can automate a lot of things nowadays but there's always the chance that something automated will fail over time due to other dependencies becoming outdated or changed, particularly with regards to web api stuff.

Having someone manual on-hand with experience to fix these things and not rely solely on automation is invaluable.

Even after... 12 years in the field you still pick up new things pretty much every day. Automated stuff, not so much.

I wander when / where the crossover points will appear.

At Nissan, theres quite a bit automation going off... One welding robot can do the work of 4 human welders, once upon a time they had little karts that was driven by humans that pulled trolleys, which contained components (Line feeders), they now have AGV's that do it... They have robots in the spray booths, where once it was blokes with a paint spray gun... Automation is everywhere, and I imagine their suppliers are the same.

So you'd think it was bad news, when it actually isnt, the plant still provides over 7000 jobs all in, because there's still shitload of things a robot cannot do, and even in most cases, you'd need major investment.

Sometimes humans are the cheaper, cost efficient way of getting things done, and I think that will always be the case.

My brothers new girlfriend is from Peru. She mentioned when they were visiting that a lot of people from venezuela are working in her country for 1 euro a month.

I got thinking later that it might have to do with the education system in these countries. In china for instance every year hundreds of thousands of engineers graduate. China is really growing it's economy.
