“Workplace AI feels like the purest distillation of a corrosive ideology that demands frictionless productivity from workers: The easier our labor becomes, the more of it we can do, and the more of it we’ll be expected to do. … We’ve seen this one before. Time and again, a piece of technology promises to increase productivity by chipping away at the inefficiencies in our lives. We’re told that it will liberate us — from the tyranny of our inboxes or from toiling on factory floors — and we will recoup our time, the most precious commodity of all. But that time is usually reinvested into more labor. … Why should we expect generative AI to free us from this familiar cycle?” (05/17/23)
