Artificial Intelligence, Automation, Training & Jobs

Technological development has major implications for labour markets. Assessing its impact will be crucial for your development and work going forward. It has become more obvious that rapid technological progress and innovation can threaten employment in all types of work.

Although Artificial Intelligence (AI) dramatically improves our world in many ways, there are notable concerns regarding the forthcoming impact of AI on employment and the workforceThere are predictions of millions of unemployed people in the next decades, primarily due to the impact of Automation and AI systems.

This is not new concept and has been considered relevant for most of the last century.John Maynard Keynes in 1930 predicted that the changes in technology will disrupt and change working life in the next 90 years. He said, “We are being afflicted with a new disease of which some readers may not have heard the name, but of which they will hear a great deal in the years to come, namely, technological unemployment”.

The emergence of ArtificiaI  Intelligence poses a new set of opportunities and challenges for the nature of work and for workers themselves.

Now robotics and computer assisted technologies have already taken over many jobs previously done by humans and AI in particular will not only displace some current jobs, but also change what humans do in work, socially and personally.

Changing even IT Jobs and Others

Cloud computing was one of the first major revolutions to IT teams. The Cloud has changed and often obliterated their jobs as IT gatekeepers focusing them to finding new and different ways to add value to their organisation.

Technology has long brought change to the nature of work, and to the skills required for the most desirable, best-paying jobs.
But until recently, new technology, even robotics, has tended to mean automating repetitive or arduous tasks, while often leading to new types of tasks for workers.

The tasks that can be done by machine learning are much broader in scope than previous generations of technology have made possible. The expanded scope will change the value employers place on tasks, and the types of skills most in demand.

As AI begins to transform businesses and reshape industries, the innovators of these technologies must consider not only the business implications, but also the societal impact. Further, the emergence of robotics and automationiss already disrupting many jobs.

Jobs will shift and evolve, not disappear. AI will augment how people complete their work by doing things like pulling and analysing data to aid in real-time decision making. An example of this might be how AI could empower a customer service agent with information from a CRM platform to help the agent decide whether or not to issue a refund.
 
Our experts believe that training, IT education and training are needed to get and keep your future jobs and work.  

The IT and AI invasion will continue and will replace repetitive tasks and work but it will also seriously effect jobs such as lawyers, accountants, insurance analysist, pilots, train drivers, doctors, journalists, taxi drivers and military personnel as well as many others.

With AI automating repeatable and mundane tasks, from accounting to the assembly line, the skill set of the human workforce needs to evolve. The focus and responsibilities of the average employee will widen and deepen. People will need to have a wealth of knowledge and more skills.

Most amounts of relevant work data is too large for humans to analyse. And so to help doctors make diagnoses to help the police prevent accidents, the potential for artificial intelligence to benefit humans appears limitless. There is valid concern that even as AI saves lives and helps businesses thrive, it will destroy livelihoods. Without a doubt, AI is taking over jobs once done by humans.

However, AI also creates jobs and  needs people to train it and watch over it. At its best, AI works with people instead of in place of them, removing the tedious parts of jobs so employees can focus on better things, doing tasks that humans were unable to, and helping employees better do their jobs.

We need a way to help people adjust from the jobs they used to have to the jobs that are now available as even the jobs that remain changes will gradually come.

AI is not the same as factory automation or robots, so AI is not taking away many jobs. Like the Internet, AI is an enabling technology, which is creating whole new industries. The first jobs created are for computer developers, AI experts and researchers, along with sales and marketing people in new AI companies.
 
Other new jobs include educators, lawyers and regulators to help society adjust to the changing technologies.

For technologies enabled by AI such as self-driving vehicles or smart buildings, we will need construction workers, engineers, and architects to build new infrastructure. That’s a lot of new jobs however the changes on existing jobs will be dramatic over the next decade. 

During the next ten years, predictions suggest a relatively low displacement of existing jobs, perhaps only around 4/5%. But job displacement could increase considerably before 2040 as these technologies mature and are rolled out across the economy in increasingly autonomous form.
