AI's potential to replace human work

This paper explores the possibility that AI systems could outperform and replace humans in economically valuable work. It models the conflict between a pro-human movement seeking to restrict AI, and an AI replacement movement aiming for unchecked AI deployment. The paper finds that against a sufficiently large AI automation threat, the pro-human movement would benefit from complete unity and early action, rather than waiting to see clear signs of the threat.
