Welcome to the future!
Where everything is different, but nothing is new. Even in the future we'll need ditch diggers. It stands to reason; there will always be people who are for progress and technology and all the good, and sometimes bad, things they bring, and the people who are against anything new and all the bad, and sometimes good, that it brings. I have this funny history of computers series from about 1992, and in it there were people from circa 1950 concerned about computers "takin' our jobs!" and you know what, that never happened, and none of the tube-driven computers ran any of those old idiots out of their crap construction or farm jobs. Even today robots are very expensive, take an IT department to manage, and only replace people for highly precise, and or dangerous, work. I'm "counting the days" until I can get a robot to do my job, and I'll die before one is available that can. The real truth about that old interview about the scary new computers is that it was all hype by the makers of the TV show it was aired on to; 1) get people excited about anything, so 2) they can sell advert time to it, even though it was complete garbage. Same thing with AI. It's barely able to play an Atari 2600 game. And it's not going to replace anyone doing anything remotely intelligent. Can it process tons of data in new weird ways? Yes! Is it going to replace me as a Linux Admin? Maybe, if it's highly tailored to do some specific tasks I do, but most likely it won't be able to because if it could it would be way more expensive than me, and it would take expert levels of knowledge being poured into it to remain up to date. I don't see it happening to anything other than simple tasks with dangerous edges, like driving, or welding, or other stuff robots already do now, or where a robot would be a welcome change to some person expecting a cash tip. So, hurry up AI! I would like to just sit back and let you do your thing, when you can actually do something. Anything.
