There are many people worldwide that are actively frightened about the role that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will play in the future of their career path. While machine learning can be a powerful tool that is eliminating a number of simple tasks within the workplace, many people that feel threatened in their job may actually see signs of encouragement when it comes to the use of AI systems. In this article we will explore some of the top ways that AI can actually create millions of more jobs rather than destroying long-standing positions:
We have survived new technology before: The invention of the computer was thought to eliminate countless positions worldwide, but as humans, we continued to adapt. Imagine the number of jobs today that employ people for their computer skills or their skills in using the Internet. Rather than facing a massive job loss, businesses have continued to adapt using the tools of technology that are granted to them. Radical technology advances such as the computer often lead to a short-term job loss but an overall growth in career opportunities.
The maintenance of artificial intelligence: artificial intelligence systems are growing with demand, and this means that there is going to be nothing but ongoing demand for people getting into this field. AI is growing adept at language translation, customer service and more. It’s allowing businesses to operate much more effectively and there are many businesses that are even trusting AI with some of its most crucial systems. In order to maintain these systems, there’s going to need to be a large number of engineers and developers at the helm of future AI tasks.
The probability of automation: it’s going to take time for full automation to take over in a number of different positions. The functions of 47% of jobs could be automated using AI systems, but we still continue to operate using older technology. Part of the reason why AI isn’t quickly taking over is because it requires training. Having experts on hand that can actively train AI systems and help developers handle functions from a professional side remain important.
Creating worldwide employment: the introduction of AI systems can actually work to make a company much more international. AI systems can often make businesses more money, and this leads to higher wages, greater efficiency in any position and better technology tools. As AI systems continue to get introduced worldwide, it’s possible that the system overall could actually generate more employment opportunities, higher wages, and better tools for the future of any company.
These are just a few of the top areas that AI is actually stepping in and creating more jobs than it’s taking away. Current AI needs to come a long way before it could officially replace many skilled career professionals. The good news is that AI systems are actually working to eliminate some of the remedial functions in many positions. Embracing technology and AI as a whole could be a great way that you can step into the future with open arms.
