Many believe that AGI will have a much greater impact than the impact of the form of narrow AI we have today. If AGI truly does render human labor obsolete the impact would be profound—with vast societal ramifications. Rising fears of massive unemployment have led to the discussion of Universal Basic Income (UBI) which would provide regular payments to everyone in society. It is important to note that there are many positive potential outcomes and that these types of fears are often misplaced. Several predictions of the impact of automation and AI that exist today have been proven false (eg the legal discovery example above). Societal shifts at this scale are endlessly complex, often counter-intuitive, and generally difficult to theorize.
