🤖💼 Will AI Take our Jobs?
As AI and automation continue to advance, many jobs will become obsolete, leaving millions of people without work. However, this doesn't necessarily mean that people won't be able to make a living. Here are a few potential ways that people might make a living in a world where AI has taken over many jobs:
Creativity and innovation: Machines may be able to perform many routine tasks more efficiently than humans, but they still lack creativity and innovation. As a result, jobs that require creativity and problem-solving skills, such as artists, writers, designers, and entrepreneurs, are likely to be in high demand.
Caregiving and personal services: Many jobs that involve caring for people or providing personal services are difficult to automate. For example, nurses, caregivers, and therapists will still be needed to provide care for the sick and elder who currently are the majority of the world population. Similarly, services like hairdressing, personal shopping, and concierge services will still require human interaction and personal touch.
Education and training: As technology continues to advance, there will be a growing need for people who can teach others how to use new tools and technologies. This includes trainers, coaches, and instructors who can help people learn new skills and adapt to new technologies. A great example of this is Prompt Engineering.
Green jobs: As concerns about climate change continue to grow, there will be a growing need for jobs that help protect the environment. This includes jobs in renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, and conservation.
Social and community services: Jobs that involve working with people and communities are unlikely to be automated anytime soon. This includes jobs in social work, community development, and public service.
Of course, these are just a few potential ways that people might make a living in a world where AI has taken over many jobs. As AI and automation continue to evolve, new jobs and industries will emerge, and people will need to continue adapting and evolving their skills to stay relevant in the workforce
🔢 Enter, “The 4 C's of 21st Century Skills.”
These skills cannot be easily automated or replaced by artificial intelligence. As machines become more intelligent and capable of performing routine tasks, the ability to think critically, generate new ideas, work well with others, and communicate effectively become increasingly valuable.
These skills are also important for success in a rapidly changing and complex world. The ability to analyze information, think critically, and solve problems creatively can help individuals adapt to new situations and solve problems that are too complex for machines to solve on their own. Collaboration and communication skills are essential for working effectively in teams and building relationships with others in a globalized and interconnected world.
In short, while technology and automation are changing the nature of work, the 4 C's of 21st Century Skills remain essential for success in the workplace and in life. Also learning how to use the latest technology trends effectively and being able to train others how to use them and understand them will be a superpower.
💰😰 The Collapse of SVB - Silicon Valley Bank
The collapse of the 16th largest bank in the US has rocked the startup world — draining billions from companies, leaving workers without paychecks, and running a chill down the spine of the financial industry in a way they haven’t felt since 2008.
Silvergate and Signature banks also failed to keep solvency. Signature was forced to wind down operations and liquidate while Silvergate Capital, was seized on Sunday evening by banking regulators.
Silvergate and Signature were the two other main banks for crypto companies, while Silicon Valley Bank had a lot of crypto startups and VCs as customers.
The failure of the crypto banking trifecta rippled into the stablecoin market over the weekend. This may cause a ripple effect with the potential to affect all of us. Coinbase Says It Holds $240 Million in Cash at Signature Bank as well as many other large web3 corporations and AI startups who have been raising money to the tune of billions.
By Sunday night, when the feds stepped in to backstop deposits at Signature and SVB, cryptocurrencies were rallying and the stablecoins had regained their pegs.
Analysts said the US Federal Reserve would probably leave interest rates on hold at its decision next week, as the meltdown at the California-based technology lender rippled through global financial markets.

🤑 Is Tech making you tip more?
The spread of automated payment and tipping culture to every corner of the food-service business has helped workers weather the pandemic, but some consumers feel overwhelmed by the number of requests to tip.
While customers felt the need to dig deeper into their pockets to recognize the hard work and health risks taken by workers in the pandemic, higher menu prices due to inflation have raised the amount of a traditional 15 or 20 percent tip. Moreover, requests for tips at all types of food businesses from bakeries and yogurt shops to food trucks and juice bars have complicated the tipping process. Customers are complaining that “tipping culture has gotten out of control,” with some feeling uncomfortable and pressured into giving more.
Meanwhile, the mechanics of tipping have changed with touch screens replacing the tip jar on the counter, and customers feel like they have to tip when standing in front of someone. Anxiety and social pressure also play into the tipping decision, while some diners believe that tips allow business owners to deflect the responsibility for paying a living wage. Nonetheless, many workers, particularly those in places where businesses are permitted to pay a lower wage to employees eligible for tips, rely on the extra money.
What is your experience with tipping when it comes to using the touch screens and preset tip percentages? Do you feel pressure to tip more, do you think is totally ok, do you think about it at all?
Thank you for all your excellent posts on Ai. You got me started on Chatgpt etc as a new author and of late I’ve been using Sudowrite albeit that’s bit of a harder challenge to use to one’s benefit without spending a fortune on wasted words when your learning to use it! As for tipping - I live in Spain now since 2015, having lived in the uk for 58 years and no one tips here, or at least outside the 3 main cities. The Spanish don’t do it nor expect it and find it really weird when we Brits give them extra money with the bill! Most other expats here don’t tip either. Especially the Dutch!!! I’ve never liked ‘the expected’ or an extra included % on the bill as a gratuity. I think that’s very presumptuous. If a waiter etc has given me excellent service I want to reward them personally for that extra mile, not the cafe or restaurant for simply selling me something as their business, unless it’s above and beyond what I expected. However I went back to the uk last year for the first time in 6 years and was shocked how at the pay points you had to press NO to refuse to tip a given amount shown regardless of the amount of purchase before being able to show your card on your mobile to make the actual payment, all the time being watched in anticipation by the teller!!! I delighted in ticking NO and again went to the particular person and gave them the tip I wanted to. Even at the airport shop coming back home it was applied for me to buy an already overpriced magazine!!! Spain may still be behind the rest of the world sometimes but I think we’ve got so much right here and the ‘modern’ western world has gotten too greedy. Just my opinion and thank you for asking.
