Specializing vs. Diversifying
Life choices are often comprised of a tradeoff between specializing and diversifying, and I think I found the right heuristic: for earning money — specialize, so you can get better, no one is getting paid much for something that anyone can do; for staying strong/healthy/mindful and everything else — diversify, as it will minimize the chance of harm from going into extremes, there is a diminishing return to everything, so it makes sense to grab the 80% of benefits with 20% of effort.
However, that’s to a stark contrast of what Harari’s thesis is on which jobs ML will replace first: in Homo Deus he argues that the most specialized professions are first to go because it’s easier to program a machine to do something very particular, which though requires a lot of experience. Case in point — MRI scan analysts. So maybe specialize but make sure it’s not very easy for ML to do in a near future :)
Any other cases when this is applicable?
