09 Jun Artificial Intelligence: Changing The Future of Jobs
Mastering machine learning and technology will be transformational, organizations success depends on leadership and humans not just on AI
Digital Inventions are always life-transforming as we have seen so far. But these transformations also come with the cost of impacting humans in one or more ways. As we speak about the new inventions that ease human life by simplifying the work, there are many impacts that these new technologies give us. One major change we can see is the replacement of human jobs by machine intelligence. While in many ways this can be seen as a boon to the human community, we may also need to pay some price to achieve this stage.
Future of Artificial Intelligence and its impact on human jobs
There are many analytics and predictions that say artificial Intelligence will replace humans in the upcoming era. According to a survey, 65% of Americans believe that machines will replace humans in the next 45-50 years completely. While the possibility of completely replacing humans in the job sector is not possible, a threat can be seen for people who are involved in doing monotonous and tedious jobs.
Machine intelligence is not only progressing in one sector but rapidly advancing and making a mark in many sectors. Even though this progress comes with the cost of depleting some human jobs, it is also to be noted that this expansion will create opportunities for humans in turn. Any progress in technology will be preceded by more expansive opportunities and services in that particular field.
AI used for smart career options – a classic example
There are many organizations that now rely on AI to do most of the work for them. As a classic example, many companies engage artificial intelligence to have them select candidates in the recruitment process. The selection process that is followed by humans is now fed as an algorithm to the machine which in turn filters the candidate’s profile based on experience, skillset, and various other categories. It presents the results to the recruiters in minutes, which otherwise would take hours and days to complete by humans. This technology is mainly used by many IT Staffing Services companies that use advanced AI for candidate selection.
Is this AI development a boon or a curse?
Usage of AI is completely transformed in this decade, especially in the field of IT and demand growth in other fields. It is imperative that AI cannot replace humans in jobs completely, but still can have a notable impact on the regular jobs that are performed by humans now.
For instance, we see smart usage of artificial intelligence in many retail platforms, one such example is Amazon.com. The smart algorithm suggests what users, could be looking to purchase next based on many criteria such as their search history, recently viewed items, etc. while to a greater extent the human manipulation and tracking is replaced by AI here, it also has expanded the possibility of developing these types of features to offer better service to the customers. Scope of jobs for these types of innovation is continuously in demand and this is where we reason why human-based jobs in AI would have good growth.
According to the statistics conducted by business today titled “The growth of AI and its impact”, 54% of humans will have many jobs connected to AI that are unexplored and unidentified now. So while many speak about the negative impact of technological growth, this survey sheds some light on how human force is a drive that is required to emerging and growing technology.
While growing technology can be a threat to human jobs, it can also be seen that no technological advance can progress or grow without a human support system. So, we may see the shedding of jobs in some sectors, but it is a promising factor that as technology grows, it also expands the job opportunities for us. It is imperative that continuous learning in the AI field will help us evolve better along with technological advancements. So let’s hope that the next growing decade will pave the way for a work culture where machines and humans can interact and advance together.
