AI cannot do the drudge work
It may command us to drudge one day though...
There is a lot of panic about AI currently and some of it may be valid. Like so much else though it is likely that the concerns far outweigh the benefits that will come forth.
When I think about how we live today, however, there is a lot of human work that will still be needed to get anything done.
I work in telecoms and understand what is needed to provide high speed circuits, but this also applies to your humble broadband line at home. Your modern high-tech experience relies on traffic management (temporary traffic lights, road closures etc), the digging up of roads and footpaths, and wayleaves (permissions to attach kit to walls in a house or even to run a cable over a farmer's field). The amount of physical work is immense and ultimately consists of a cable running from one place to another, potentially over many miles and through multiple exchanges, just to let you browse the internet.
All of the above applies to your mobile connection as well so a LOT of human drudge work is required.
My son worked in a local store while at University to make extra money and I was surprised when he explained how stock replenishment happens. On a single day in a small store the stock has to be manually checked for expiry dates, price changes and item levels over and over again. The stock then has to be replenished multiple times a day after it has been delivered from a warehouse in a huge lorry. It, again, is all manual work and shows just how much work is needed to give us what often appears to be a seamless experience.
So many aspects of our lives are simple on the surface, but behind them is a huge amount of physical effort than, at this time, only humans can do.
Maybe AI will become the overlord with a few robots to keep us in line, but more likely we will continue to need to do the physical stuff. The cleverest trick of technology is to make you believe that it magically just happens. It doesn't.
