AI Paradox

Is AI a tool for the lazy, or is it making us lazy, all in the name of boosting performance and efficiency? If we consider the Productivity Paradox, Aristocratic Fog, and Social Loafing, it seems we’re facing symptoms – and yes, they probably are. But they pinpoint a creeping sensation one feels when observing our behavior in the age of automation.
