No Surprise: Some Analytic Jobs are Still Done By Humans

September 8, 2018

Once in a while we stumble across something that truly surprises us. Like how some jobs you thought could be erased by artificial intelligence or machine learning in about five seconds, still exist. Take, for example, this handy list of airport WiFi passwords from around the globe that we discovered at FoxNoMad, entitled (yep, you guessed it) “A Map of Wireless Passwords From Airports and Lounges Around the World.”

According to the page:

“Finding an open wireless connection in many airports is not always easy, or possible, without a password (or local phone number which is stupid). The difficulty of getting online is why I asked you for and created an always-up-to-date list of airport wireless passwords around the world. You’ve been sending me your tips regularly and I post on the foXnoMad Facebook page when there’s a new password or airport added.”

One look is like stepping into a digital time machine. There’s something quaint about this simple map updated by individuals on their own after they use an airports Internet. It’s shocking that an algorithm has not done this all by now. Much like the job of quality assurance tester mentioned here there is still a shocking amount of work out there that AI has not done. Soak up the good news while you can, we say.
