Artificial Intelligence Will Create More Jobs


Why Artificial Intelligence Will Create More Jobs

The future of the workforce is changing, and companies are not sure what to do about it. Will humans be replaced by machines? Or can Artificial Intelligence (AI) help us work more quickly while being less costly than relying on people?

Here are some examples of the impact of AI on the workforce:

Automation Demands Creating New Skillsets

Currently, there are many jobs that rely heavily on automation, and these could potentially be replaced by AI-made machines. However, AI will create the development of new skillsets, which require human training to function properly. We can expect this trend to not only threaten unskilled laborers but also create different kinds of work for skilled professionals like engineers or doctors.

Chatbots are a great way to increase your customer service without cutting jobs. A good example is the chatbot on Facebook Messenger, which has been able to answer thousands of questions about restaurants and what they offer from people all over.

This will free people up to do more of the high value, relationship building services while deploying AI/chatbots in areas where they excel.

AI: Equally Disrupting And Enabling

The person whose role no longer includes a certain repetitive task now automated by AI may not necessarily lose their job. Rather, they’ll have new responsibilities that more broadly focus on human capabilities, cannot be delivered by robots.

Every worker who wishes to maintain his job will likely have to have continuous learning and learn new skills. Especially when AI takes on more of the work humans do.

Changing Scope Of Jobs

Experts believe the biggest challenge related to AI is the changing scope of human jobs, considering AI’s automation and autonomy. The potential effect of AI on jobs includes job losses, but also the development of new jobs requiring new AI-related skills.

Systems that learn in a supervised, top-down fashion based on training data cannot grow beyond the contents of their learning. They are limited to only being able to perform tasks given by what’s been previously programmed into them.

Not An All Or Nothing Scenario

The process of workplace evolution has always involved a transition period. AI is just another step in that history, and it will likely follow suit with other transitions such as the industrial revolution or IT automation. It has been suggested that instead of viewing AI as a threat to human jobs, it should be seen as “intelligence augmentation.”

An AI Skills Shortage

Technology is always changing, and recent development in AI could have major impacts on the way we work. Automation may result in certain jobs being lost, but it will create other posts that need filling too. This can cause a shortage in skilled labor in relation to AI technology.

AI Cannot Set Objectives

As good as AI systems are, they’re not going to set objectives. AI may cut the mundane out of many jobs, but for it to work effectively AI will need more people in new roles. Training, it seems, is the way to avoid AI-induced unemployment.
