Artificial intelligence systems vs labor market.
Thanks to the development of artificial intelligence systems computers are perfectly capable of performing tasks that just a few years ago were only handled by humans. Many industries are replacing employees with robots, and the increasing pace of automation and robotization is changing the labor market.
McKinsey Global Institute predicts that up to 800 million workers around the world may lose their jobs by 2030. At the same time, artificial intelligence also needs people to create and maintain software and equipment. The use of robots threatens some professions with extinction or reduction in employment, while others offer prospects for growth and development.
Which professions are at risk? Primarily those involving repetitive activities:
- news reporter;
- warehouse worker;
- machine and equipment operator;
- financial analyst;
- credit specialist.
Which professions are on the rise? The development of artificial intelligence systems requires employees to create and support solutions:
- machine learning and artificial intelligence specialists;
- automation architects;
- copywriters to create dialog interfaces and tests for bots;
- system operators.
Developing artificial intelligence systems and automating tasks with them is inevitable, so it’s worth thinking about what you’ll be doing in 5, 10, 15 years…
