    I think the Jupiter mission ship in 2001 was called the Discovery.

    So AI will do *everything?*


    Farm the food?


    Deliver the food to my door?


    Make my house?


    And undercut human workers because it doesn’t ask for compensation?


    Great then why do I need a job?

    Bob, have you seen this interview between Glenn Greenwald and Darren Beattie about Lex Fridman? Why do the already existing AI super minds (the youtube algorithm) want us to listen to lex fridman so bad?
