My threat models are clearly different to other folks’. All the other guests are resting on sun lounges under these heavily laden coconut palm trees. I’m resting on the veranda under the shade of the roof.

Editorial: Twenty-two years ago, Janet Albrechtsen was especially concerned about the survivors of rape. This should be unremarkable, except for the writing that followed. At the time, she saw rape as a religious issue. She blamed it on “Islamic values”.

I'm not going to speak specifically about my employer for obvious reasons, but I will say what I'm telling all of my mentees in tech right now.

Losing your job to AI in 2024 doesn't look like what people think it looks like. AI will not replace your job function 100%. AI also will not make us all 20% more productive, allowing 20% of staff to be laid off.

Your employer wants to control costs, but has a big AI bill. They choose between you vs more GPUs+ML folk+infra.

@mekkaokereke the best time to be learning AI skills was last year (like I told my team). The second best time is now.

kcarruthers,
@kcarruthers@mastodon.social avatar

@mekkaokereke that’s why I told my team to use their two hours of innovation time each sprint last year to study AI and do their certs. It is good to be looking ahead. I do pity those other folks who did not look ahead or have managers who looked ahead. You’re right it’s not nice to be scrabbling to learn under stress.
