I'm a 25 year old eternal student. I never want to stop learning. I'm interested in physics, math, philosophy, psychology, education, and literature. I'm optimistic about the world and the future.

This article reads like it was really trying to be controversial, but didn't end up saying anything. It seems to waffle back and forth about whether the government should or shouldn't be regulating AI but mostly wanted to whine about how "Artificial Intelligence" doesn't have a widely agreed upon meaning while remaining politically relevant.
I mean, if the GOP hadn't been rotted already, they never would have let it get half this bad. Saying that the GOP is rotting now is just a confusion of cause and effect. Cads like Brooks were just too stupid to notice that the party was rotten until the stench was undeniable.
That's what I don't trust, though. I know enough about Trump, Flynn and the FBI to smell bullshit when I read it. All I know about Yemen is that the Ottomans invaded them for coffee and that the desert people from Dune are based on the Houthis.
Considering I personally know at least one person who did exactly what you're describing (big salary still pending), I'd say yes, that's very possible. ;) I think am_Unition is defending the people who stay in physics, not the ones who jump ship.
Also there's this thing, which ought to prove that physicists have definitely already left their mark on quantitative finance.
