The rise of generative AI in automating mundane tasks, traditionally assigned to entry-level workers, is causing concern among young workers. This technology is seen as a threat to their career development, especially as companies have increasingly neglected training and mentorship programs. Automating these tasks eliminates the last vestiges of on-the-job learning for young employees. Furthermore, the burden of student debt and the increasing requirement of a college degree for jobs add to the challenges faced by Gen Z. The lack of training and professional development leaves young workers with limited opportunities to learn and grow in their roles. This situation creates a career crisis for young people, potentially weakening the economy in the long run. Based on my experience alone, I can see it transforming the workplace over the next five years.
I also cover a recent discovery of a hotspot on the moon’s far side, which scientists believe could help us understand more about the moon’s past. I talk about the decline in user engagement on Meta’s new app, Threads, and Elon Musk’s new AI startup, X AI. Additionally, I share some tech tips and reviews, including ways to protect your computer from humidity, reasons to buy still a hard drive over an SSD, and a new tool that can turn scribbles into real art.
