🗿 A Case For Humanity

We need to either leverage robots to end human slave labor.

Heard a quote the other day: “I want AI to do my laundry and dishes so that I can do art and writing, not for AI to do my art and writing so that I can do my laundry and dishes.” Thanks to everyone who came to Austin for an epic 1000+ person event.

Got me thinking. We need to either leverage robots to end human slave labor and prioritize what humans are best at (irrational, illogical, immeasurable, messy, dynamic creativity) AND deprioritize what sucks our souls (rigid scheduling, monotonous tasks, automation).

Without Further Ado. ☕ *knuckle cracks* ☕ Let’s get into it.

A Case For Humanity

Anyone who thinks AI is going to take over the world in the next 3-5 years should get up from their desk and take their car for an oil change, talk to the local dry cleaner, the maid at their gym, the grocery store clerk, the podiatrist, the dentist, the golf club manager, the building maintenance guy, the dog walker, the local band playing at the bar tonight, the food truck girl, the local baker.

How about a farmer? Vertical farming is cool, but automated food cultivation doesn't sound too appetizing...

What we may call "antiquated lifestyles" in tech is the reality of existence for most of the world.

These industries are nowhere close to adopting new technology in a deep and meaningful way. And frankly, they don't have to. Many boring businesses are cash cows and perfectly content, operating with outdated systems and handshake deals.

Just because something's new and innovative, people think it's automatically better. However, humans tend to invent things to make our lives easier but make our lives more complicated.

It's a harsh reality that a forager living in 8500 BC likely lived a more varied and fulfilling existence than a sweatshop worker in 2024.

We can rah-rah new AI tools. But get ready. There will be a massive backlash and social movement against the mass adoption of automated technology.

Love what AI has to offer. At Supernova, we plan to stay on the bleeding edge.

But on a human-to-human level, we should be considerate about how every form of new tech has the potential to enrich humanity or make it more complicated and anxious.
