AI should not be weaponized against human workers
Why is it that the prevailing mindset when it comes to generative AI is that it should replace the jobs of humans?
Instead of replacing jobs, shouldn’t generative AI be used to augment the productivity and effectiveness of the existing workforce? Imagine how much value the existing workforcr of a company can unlock if they are upskilled to use AI tools rather than be replaced by AI.
Imagine if AI tools are used for the portions of tasks that humans do not find meaningful. It can free up so much time so that humans can focus on higher value work and rest. At the very least, the time AI tools can free up could lead to more slack; this can provide flexibility and openness to creative ideas and insight.
Our role is not to weaponize AI as a means to replace human workers or even as a means to cheat assessments. We should humanize AI, such that it enables the person to do less of the soulless task and more of the soulful ones.
John 3:16-21. But he that does truth, comes to the light, that his works may be made manifest, because they are done in God.
