Artificial intelligence or (AI) is beginning to have a significant impact on today’s job market.
While AI has the potential to create new jobs and improve productivity, it also has the power to automate many roles that are currently performed by human workers.
It is important to note that AI is not a full replacement for us humans, but rather a tool that can be used to enhance our capabilities. This means that AI will not necessarily replace all human workers, but rather it will perform certain tasks and make them more efficient. For example, AI can be used to automate repetitive and mundane tasks such as data entry, which will free up human workers to focus on more creative and complex tasks.
Did you know that a 2013 study by Oxford researchers predicted that 47% of positions in today’s market will eventually be done by robots?
So, what positions are at risk of being taken over by AI?
Self-driving vehicles such as Tesla’s have been on the rise in the coming years and are starting to impact the job market for drivers. While some experts predict that there will still be a need for human drivers in certain industries, such as long-haul trucking, many other driving roles such as taxi services, Uber, and food delivery are at risk of being replaced by AI.
Have you ever walked into a fast food restaurant and ordered your food at a kiosk? That’s because the purchase of that kiosk is far cheaper than the labor the company would pay for a worker to do the same job over the next 10-15 years. AI-powered chatbots and virtual assistants are already being used in customer service positions and this trend is likely to continue in the next few years. While human customer service representatives will still be needed in some cases, many routine tasks can be done by AI.
Sales and Marketing
AI can be used to analyze data and identify patterns that can be used to improve sales and marketing efforts. While human workers will still be needed to develop marketing strategies and build relationships with customers, many routine sales and marketing tasks can be taken on by AI.
AI is likely to take away jobs from people in many industries, but it is important to remember that it is not a replacement for humans. Think of AI as a tool that can be used to enhance our human capabilities and improve our productivity. It is important for workers to develop skills that are complementary to AI, such as creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving, in order to remain competitive in the future of the job market.
