In the age of AI, who will be replaced, and who shall remain?

Jokes aside, the deteriorating economic environment has already caused many people to lose their jobs, and the advent of intelligent commerce will lead to even more people being replaced by AI. Who will be replaced by the new commercial revolution brought by AI? And who will stay to continue working?

May be replaced: Methodology believers, executors.
Irreplaceable: Methodology creators and inductors.

In the era relying on human labor, methodology can standardize the execution of various industries. However, in the AI business era, all predictable patterns can be induced by mathematics and executed by programs.

May be replaced: People who rely on low-level information difference to make a living.
Irreplaceable: Experts who master deep professional information.

Many businesses and positions are built on a low-level information difference, and they will gradually disappear. However, people who have in-depth mastery of professional information in certain high-demand fields will not be replaced in the short term.

May be replaced: People with poor work initiative.
Irreplaceable: People with strong work initiative.

When you cannot actively discover and complete work, it means that most of your work can be replaced by machines. Not to mention common professional habits such as poor communication, inability to perceive motivation, and using explanations to shift responsibility when problems arise. Business society is very realistic. In the past, when you were a big trouble, your pros and cons were considered whether to replace you, but today and in the future, as long as you make people annoyed in your work, you will be replaced.

May be replaced: People who cannot objectively view AI business.
Irreplaceable: People who can objectively view AI business.

People who cannot objectively view AI business are digging their own graves. Either they underestimate the trend and are eliminated, or they overestimate and blindly invest. Only by understanding and experiencing it, and then adapting it appropriately, can it be used positively.

May be replaced: People with weak cultural perception and application ability.
Irreplaceable: People with cultural perception and practical ability.

Culture is not just understood as academic qualifications and cultural employment. There are many discussions on the definition of culture in the East and the West. To summarize, the basic first-level overview is “wide-ranging knowledge and the ability to use it practically.” This is what AI can do, and it can do it better than humans as long as it does it more often, but it requires human input and supervision. Another meaning is “the inner spirit and accomplishment,” which is an ability that AI cannot possess.

As the AI business era continues to unfold, it is clear that some jobs will be lost, while new opportunities will arise. While it can be unsettling to see traditional roles disappear, it is important to focus on the opportunities that arise from the changing landscape. Those who adapt and embrace change will be the ones who thrive in this new ecosystem. As we continue on this journey, let us strive to develop the skills and abilities that will help us succeed in the AI-powered future. By doing so, we can continue making important contributions to society, and help shape a better future for all.

The Power of Cultural Works: Impact on Web3

In recent times, we have witnessed several instances where cultural works and their creators have had a significant impact on industries.

This reminds me of of the most notable cases is Dave Carroll’s protest song “United Breaks Guitars,” which caused United Airlines’ market value to drop by $180 million in 2008.

Similarly, in 2022, TikTok influencer Salem Ilese’s song “Crypto Boy” caused a widespread crash in the cryptocurrency market. More recently, at ETH Denver 2023, performers used music and satire to criticize certain phenomena in the cryptocurrency market, which once again led to a crash.

These events demonstrate the power that cultural works and their creators can have on industries. Carroll’s song, Ilese’s song, and the performances at ETH Denver all reached a massive audience through various means of cultural dissemination, such as social media and live events.

It is important to acknowledge that cultural works have far-reaching effects on industries, both positive and negative. While some may argue that they only bring about negative consequences, we cannot overlook the significant progress and advancements that have been made in fields such as literature, art, and technology thanks to cultural works.

In fact, visionary authors like Jules Verne and H.G. Wells have inspired countless scientific breakthroughs that have shaped our world today. So let us not discount the immense power of cultural works to bring about positive change and progress in various industries.

Join us in taking action against fraudulent activities in industries such as cryptocurrency. These unscrupulous acts can cause harm to innocent investors and negatively impact the entire industry. Let us harness the power of artists to hold those involved in fraud accountable and drive positive change. Together, we can recognize the immense influence of cultural creators and use it to propel progress forward.

How to Deal with the Dark Side of the Information Age

With the convenience of information production and dissemination, we have witnessed an explosive growth of information that has led to the development and globalization of the information economy, as well as accelerated the progress of human society. However, this convenience has also caused a surge of low-quality and redundant information, posing a serious challenge to individuals’ ability to process and utilize information effectively.

The prevalence of mobile internet and the development of smartphones have enabled individuals to access information anytime and anywhere, resulting in an overwhelming amount of information and a trend towards information fragmentation. The issue of information overload has become a significant problem that individuals are facing today. The excessive cognitive load caused by information overload not only affects our productivity but also leads to negative impacts on our health.

Network technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence are continuously innovating to explore new ways of information production and dissemination. This advancement brings both opportunities and challenges while also raising new ethical and legal issues that need to be addressed.

Although the Web has revolutionized the way we produce and disseminate information, it has not changed the nature of information itself. Simply being on the Web does not automatically make information effective or of higher quality. Unfortunately, the world today is dominated by a dire situation that is shaped by low-quality information and its impact on our lives.

To cope with the challenge of information overload, we need to develop practical strategies to manage and utilize information effectively. Here are some suggestions:

  • We need to cultivate critical thinking skills to help us evaluate the quality and reliability of the information we encounter.
  • We should establish a clear goal and purpose for our information search, which can help us to narrow down the scope of information and reduce the possibility of being overwhelmed.
  • We should prioritize and select the information that is most relevant to our goals and objectives.
  • We can leverage technology tools, such as filters and algorithms, to help us screen out irrelevant information.
  • We should take breaks from information consumption, giving ourselves the space and time to recharge and refresh our cognitive abilities.

In conclusion, while information technology brings many benefits to our lives, we must be aware of the negative impacts it can have on our health and productivity. By adopting practical strategies to manage and utilize information effectively, we can mitigate the challenges of information overload and shape a world where high-quality information is valued and accessible to all.

Do We Need KOLs in the Web3 Era?

In the consumer goods market, user evaluations are always popular, and many evaluators have become KOLs due to their personal charm and unique expression style. The marketing model composed of brands, products, KOLs, and consumers is indeed a consumer trend.

As for me personally, apart from innovators having certain breakthroughs and new ideas in their methods and approaches, which would attract me to watch and browse, I wouldn’t continuously follow these evaluations and wouldn’t make my consumption decisions based on these information. I always believe that consuming is a personal matter, and I need to research and think about why I’m paying money.

Therefore, I think that enough consumer product evaluations are boring and meaningless, and they are far from professional. They are just a personal experience show, and are entertainment. Sorry, I shouldn’t use “just” because entertainment also has value and can pass time and bring pleasure.

In the Web3 field, although the overall audience is still in its initial stage, this market is very similar to the consumer goods market, and many users spend a lot of time writing reports, who are called Crypto KOLs. Based on my personal nature, I’m obviously not likely to read this kind of content. To be frank, research is nonsense, and reporting is nonsense. If there’s nothing to say, then keep quiet, there’s no need to look for topics to talk about. Of course, this attitude also applies to ordinary consumer product evaluations, to all.

My friend Acan has been aiming to be a Web3 opinion leader, and judging from his social media following, he has achieved it. He always talks about his “fans” as if he had no idea what the term “followers” means. During a Twitter space discussion about DigiDaigaku, everyone asked him for his opinion on the project, and he responded, “It’s great, I’ve been keeping an eye on it. It’s interesting how users can fish in the game…” We were amazed, he confused DigiDaigaku with Castaways (a blockchain game where players build islands and fish). How can he speak his mind without any shame?

This kind of embarrassing situation can happen to anyone. When a person loses himself, he can become extremely absurd and become someone else’s joke. This primitive individual cognition is difficult to improve and cannot evolve with the times. They are too indulged in the vanity brought by the digital age.

The Web3 concept we see seems to be based on the blockchain and cryptocurrency market, which is only a necessary technical development of the appearance, while the core driving force is the awakeness of personal consciousness. Following or being part of the crowd are both unqualified behaviors, and you don’t necessarily need to pretend to be unique, but you do need to establish yourself to truly enter Web3.

So, does this era need KOLs? To solve boredom? To create entertainment? Of course they can exist, but I don’t need them.
