Trainers. — Ethan Marcotte

Brenda commutes two hours by bus to her job, where she and her fellow employees produce training data. During her eight-hour shift, she and her fellow “trainers” will view many, many images on their computer screens. Each of them will highlight areas of the image with their mouse, and then label each region.

This is disgusting. It is the transcription of human skill into code for the benefit of a capital-hoarding minority. Fuck AI.
