Smith, Serena. “Would it really be so bad if AI took our jobs?.” Dazed, 16 Jan 2023, www.dazeddigital.com/life-culture/article/57944/1/would-it-be-so-bad-if-ai-took-our-jobs-chat-gpt-automation.

The rise of the ChatGPT chatbot has sparked pressing questions about automation and the future of work. In a world where artificial intelligence (AI) is advancing rapidly, the question of whether it would be a good or bad thing for machines to take our jobs is becoming increasingly relevant. On the one hand, some argue that the rise of automation could lead to a fully automated utopia, where machines do all the work and humans are free to pursue leisure and creativity. On the other hand, others argue that the widespread loss of jobs linked to automation could have disastrous consequences for society.
