This is probably just the tip of a much larger trend. Working in Nanyuki, Kenya, "Collins writes college essays on topics including psychology, sociology, and economics.... In 2022, he made between $900 and $1,200 a month from this work. Lately, however, his earnings have dropped to $500–$800 a month. Collins links this to the meteoric rise of ChatGPT and other generative artificial intelligence tools." It's hard not to have mixed feelings about this in this specific case, through I wonder in general how much of the lower-paid knowledge work industry in Africa and Asia will be impacted by AI.
