We can not deny that Automation has become a considerable part of our daily lives and has been one of the in-demand advancements that we all look up to. Still, it does consist of specific severe warnings about the future of jobs that humans have currently done. The one good news is that it would replace not all jobs. However, occupations that need repetitive and predictable tasks such as logistics, administration, and transportation may get endangered because of Automation/AI.
About ten years back, Robots and their indulgence in the market were negligible, and they never imagined their control over jobs. Now, the tables have turned, thanks to deep learning, machine learning, research on neural networks, etc. AI has come a long way from self-driving cars to delivering packages through drones. While looking at these jobs being quickly replaced by machines, it’s much harder to visualize the future of employment. New technology brings new jobs. Maintaining and designing devices are becoming a direct job and is supporting an entire Industry. The industry that is not technologically sound is directly or indirectly associated with the ‘direct industries’ in some way, shape, or form and paves the way for more jobs to be created.
This is because machines are 100x more efficient than humans in laborious work. For example, It requires days for a school Teacher to teach 100 essays, but for a machine, it is just minutes of work. Coming to other jobs AI creates could increase the demand for trainers. Those who can train you to make a model and teach you how it works. Also, vice-versa, they must prepare the AI system for how they should behave when taking human instructions. LinkedIn said that AI skill demand increased to 190 % between 2015 and 2017. The underlying automation trend continues to provide ever more powerful, ever cheaper technology, creating even more opportunities for entrepreneurs and workers in rural and urban India.
Nowadays, the new jobs are first class and the first world and require skilled jobs in education, healthcare, and an expanding range of professional disciplines. Automation is not only limited to Developed countries, but developing Nations are experiencing it too. Of course, we still have massive poverty and a skills acquisition challenge to tackle, but Automation’s net effect is positive.
So we are trying to say that AI is taking away jobs. But, it is ruining it away jobs that were difficult or strenuous to do in the first place. AI comes with a massive army of programming, maintenance, and training that can help companies to hire professionals with relevant skills.
