Can you use tools for your work?
Can you use computers for your work?
I see no difference between the two era’s, and neither with next era created by AI.
As in every technological advancement, your individual capacity increases if you have access to the tools.
As in every technological advancement, there is a delay where you can be an early adopter vs when everyone expects you to use X given the expected outcome or even job.
And just as with the mass adoption of computers, the works that are around in mass will change.
And just as with the mass adoption of computers, there will be a mass adoption of AI for work that will cause earlier work to become less rare and easier to create.
If outcome is your priority, there will be more outcome.
If outcome is your priority, prepare for any means used to achieve it.
A tool is just a tool, don’t expect to learn the skill if the tool does all the effort, you then only learn to operate the tool.
You will only fool yourself. And if everyone fools themselves with it, the labor itself is lost.
