Vcera sme pozerali super reportaz o modernom "dobrovolnom" otroctve. Pracovne podmienky rozvadzacov jedla a neviditelna praca statisicov ludi ktori feeduju IA za 30 centov na hodinu, ci content reviewers ktori koncia s PTSD za par supov.
Robili aj rozhovory s manazerskymi hyenami figure eight (AI feeding), googlu, uber eats, deliveroo a dalsich. Bolo nadherne sledovat ich ksichty ked z otazok o krasach AI nonsalantne presli k otazkam exploitovania zamestnancov ci freelancerov.
Celkom mi doslo zle.
Ak viete po FR urcite odporucam checknut.
Au secours, mon patron est un algorithme
Dobry clanok na thenation:
But if you happen to be a low-end worker doing the Internet’s grunt work, a different vision arises. According to critics, Amazon’s Mechanical Turk may have created the most unregulated labor marketplace that has ever existed. Inside the machine, there is an overabundance of labor, extreme competition among workers, monotonous and repetitive work, exceedingly low pay and a great deal of scamming. In this virtual world, the disparities of power in employment relationships are magnified many times over, and the New Deal may as well have never happened.
As Miriam Cherry, one of the few legal scholars focusing on labor and employment law in the virtual world, has explained: “These technologies are not enabling people to meet their potential; they’re instead exploiting people.” Or, as CrowdFlower’s Biewald told an audience of young tech types in 2010, in a moment of unchecked bluntness: “Before the Internet, it would be really difficult to find someone, sit them down for ten minutes and get them to work for you, and then fire them after those ten minutes. But with technology, you can actually find them, pay them the tiny amount of money, and then get rid of them when you don’t need them anymore.”
