Quotes Harold Jarche, who says "In a few months, maybe a year, the first wave of AI-driven layoffs slash firings are going to hit the economy. And then? They'll just keep going. Executives are going to figure out that a whole lot of work — clerical, administrative, accounting, legal, writing, marketing, customer relations, even decision-making and risk analysis and data analysis — can be automated." I think that's true. But as someone who provides the tech to people sometimes, my experience suggests that there will be a need for educators to help people learn how to use these new automated systems. There's going to be a lot of push-back, because it's a lot easier to work with the clerical, admin and other staff that used to manage these processes.
