#1375 - About value
Yesterday I saw a post on LinkedIn with some data on the impact of generative AI.
Time to complete coding task: -55% (Human + AI)
Time/Cost to generate graphic design: 5h/150$ (Human) vs <1 min/0.08$ (Human + AI)
AI training costs are dropping -70% per year (cost to train GPT-3 level performance)
And it's just the beginning. It feels like a lot of cognitive stuff that we do and costs us time, energy, and sweat will be done by software in a fraction of time, at a fraction of cost, and maybe even better than we could ever do.
The problem is that for many, that effort is our job. The ability to write, calculate, and code is what we are paid for. It's what we are valued for.
Because in our society, your value depends on your ability to create value for others. There are, obviously, many ways to create value for others.
But I feel like current society, often labelled as the Information Age, gives a premium on the ability to think, store and transform information.
So, I wonder if the rise of AI can be an opportunity to redefine how we value ourselves.
ChatGPT says that it's not appropriate to calculate the value of a person in terms of monetary or materialistic value.
As an AI language model, I would define the value of a person as the inherent worth and dignity that each human being possesses simply by existing. Every individual has their own unique qualities, experiences, and contributions that make them valuable and important.
The value of a person is not based on their financial or material possessions but rather on their character, integrity, empathy, compassion, and other personal qualities. It is also based on the positive impact that they have on others and on society as a whole.
Ultimately, the value of a person is immeasurable and cannot be calculated or quantified. Every human being deserves to be treated with respect, dignity, and compassion and to have their contributions recognized and appreciated.
