Depends on what you do. First-gen AGI is still going to be a magical thing, but it won't send out an ever-expanding geodesic dome of nanites to kickstart the Singularity. It's going to be Siri, GPT-3, Wolfram Alpha, and more all in one.
If you're a construction worker, service worker, or in some other physical field, this decade is probably not going to worry you too much. Maybe by 2025-2028, some construction workers will really feel the pinch and big-box stores will cut down on some staff (but certainly not all). I laugh at the idea that McDonalds will be human-free even by 2030 (because they're often running on such tight margins; some McDonalds in my area still don't even have those kiosks), but just half a decade after that, I can see it.
If you're more of an office monkey who mainly does spreadsheets or graphic design, you're fucked. I don't know how else to put it. I can't sugarcoat it either.
If you're like me and more of an artsy malchick, you might write for money.
I've completely given up on the idea of writing smut on Amazon, even though it'd be so easy to make a good deal of money, only because I figured there's more long-term benefit in working on my own passion projects to have them far more fleshed out once I have advanced synthetic media to bring them even further to life and expand on what I'll likely have written by that point. Compared to, say, a timeline where I focus more on erotic smut on Amazon and make a decent amount of money (maybe $30,000 by this point next year), but the stories I actually want to write are undercooked and suddenly GPT-X is out and now any horny housewife can generate all the novel-length fantasies of being "claimed" by an outlaw biker Bigfoot she wants (I'm not even making that one up). There goes that profit model. But hey, at least I have some followers who like the passion projects I'm working on, right? Yeah, instead of maybe a few thousand followers for Strongest Under Heaven and Little Miss Savage complete with some who are dedicated enough to make fanart (perhaps even using GANs and transformers), it's the same few followers of Mother Meki. 's concept, from the middle of last decade. A story I may eventually bring back, but certainly not anytime soon. Oh shit, I have to scramble to get those other stories ready! But now it's too late; they're just drowned out by the massive cacophony of AI-generated stories.
Maybe not next year, mind you: I doubt we'd see such a radical surge until at least 2023 (and indeed, I plan on exploiting that early period of wider ignorance to AI-generated literature to my advantage anyway), but that's how I'm thinking about the near future.
"How does general-purpose AI affect my near future plans? Do I focus on this project? Or that one?" I think about commissioning artwork for stories; in three to five years, I could easily use a vastly advanced version of Artbreeder to create whatever sort of image or scene I want. So do I make something today or just wait? Normally, I figure that I might as well act today on some things and wait for others.
In the long long run, it really doesn't matter; circa 2040 or so, I could just synthesize a reality where I'm successful no matter what, complete with an entire edited internet and media landscape. But that's deep in the future.
I think quite a bit about what sort of day job I might get. The current one I have could only be replaced by a robot, not just an AI. It's basically safe until the latter half of the decade, and perhaps even further than that considering this place probably isn't going to shell out the money for a robot until it costs something like $5,000. As I have a very low-energy and low-consumption lifestyle, I'm not seeking much more than this. Even if my net worth was 10,000x greater, I'd probably be living in a place not unlike where I am now, doing the exact same things. This, too, is something I've started wondering about in relation to first-gen AGI, but to a vastly lesser extent and dealing more with the things that we've talked about here before (if I have an advanced cognitive agent for an assistant, I'll probably use it primarily as a surrogate digital parent reminding me to clean my room or monitoring my blood pressure).
