[A.I. & Hollywood Part 2] In the last episode, Nick and Rob talked about the SAG Hollywood strike. But in this episode, they discuss how it’s not only the entertainment industry that’s threatened by an A.I. takeover of people’s jobs. Did you know that automation and technology are getting so advanced, there are now entirely humanless businesses? Do you know what kinds of shady labor costs are REALLY involved in sustaining this huge tech industry (and that’s not actually talking about money costs here, but slave labor). If you thought an automated cheeseburger machine was the only thing you have to worry about today, there’s much more to discuss, so join the HypXR podcast that’ll help you navigate the multiverse.
In this episode: McDonald’s gets automated, like other fast food joints testing out a humanless, contactless experience. What does the future of work look like in the age of technology? While some jobs get eliminated, will others be created? On a tangential side note, are mustaches back in style or should they remain a thing of the past? Elon Musk’s X.AI, or “Grok,” is an AI chatbot “intended to answer almost anything.” What else can chatbots do? The creation of technology needs to be ethical; just look at the state of cobalt mines in the Congo being worked by children or the Chinese Communist Party’s use of slave labor in manufacturing. From fast food and grocery store robots to the materials needed for technological advancements around the world, there’s a lot to cover.
