I fear for the professions.
Those which have enjoyed a monopoly for so long due to their protection by Royal Societies and Official registries. Those which require accreditation and continued professional development.
I’m not saying they never provided a quality professional service, I’m saying they had Carte Blanche to charge extortionate prices in a protected market.
When your moat is a 6-year degree and a 2-year traineeship it’s incredibly difficult to disrupt.
The problem is, with people living longer and more and more people jockeying to enter service based professions, there are too many people entering almost every one.
But here come the machines and they can read everything you have instantaneously, as well as every other law book every written. They have total recall of any precedent ever set and an insurmountable amount of information at the end of their electrodes, ready to be utilised in response to any query or requirement.
