Imagine you’re a blacksmith in 1880. No one has ever managed to forge a wheel before. What we replaced was manual labor, yes, but it was still creative work. Now we’ll just replace creative knowledge-work, and we’ll figure out something new. Can AI vlog? No. Because it has no body. And so on. Also, there’s a good chance AI actually developing creativity at our level will take a long, long time still. But yeah, I do think we’ll go towards more entertainment and less menial work!
