It is useless to deny the general attention towards artificial intelligence, which becomes more and more the protagonist of our lives. Scientists are attracted by the potential of AI and by new technological machines, more and more advanced and powerful. For this reason, it is legitimate to ask what the future of these tools is, if they will really be able to take possession of our daily life and replace human works.
We've seen more than a few "anti" AI movies, which showed the downside of technology that try to imitate the man. Still, reality can't really be that terrible. And there are many experts pointing out the dangers to “delegate” the next steps on our technological evolution to artificial intelligence.
If we think about all the benefits that technology brings to our life, we should be happy with the arrival of new tools based on artificial intelligence. The problem is us, rather: we need to organize our life in such a way detach the concept of work from that of income.
The 5 human jobs replaced by artificial intelligence
In this article we will take a closer look at what are the five human jobs that could easily be replaced by AI.
Rather than speaking of replacement, perhaps it would be more correct to speak of "change". With the advent of artificial intelligence, these areas will certainly undergo changes, as will people who have been in the same profession for years. Anyway, here they are:
The first job, the first profession to change due to AI, is that of the receptionist. Men and women who work in this environment already know the power of automation. In fact, for some years now, the receptionist's work has been partially replaced by automatic machines.
This is the case of promotional phone calls, increasingly handled by computers and not by real people.
In the future, the receptionist figure may slowly disappear, completely replaced by artificial intelligence.
In the world of printing, as well as in the publishing world, proofreaders are very important figures.
To them we owe the final correction of the texts, the modification consistent with the grammatical and linguistic rules. Still, several agencies have begun to leverage automated proofreading software rather than human proofreaders.
As software improves and becomes faster and more functional, there is the possibility that proofreaders will be replaced by artificial intelligence.
Market research analysts
Analysts, those involved in the interpretation of market research, are still in high demand. They help manage marketing and financial strategies, creating a plan that is reliable and consistent with the brand message.
Lately, however, we have seen the birth of several automatic tools, dedicated to market analysis. Each of these tools aims to facilitate and speed up the analysis process, but could result in the partial replacement of analysts with tools based on artificial intelligence.
Taxis and bus drivers
Such jobs are at risk in both the short and medium term.
We talk more and more about vehicles autonomous driving, able to transport passengers to their destination smoothly. We have already seen the first automatic trains and automatic subways; it's only a matter of time before the first taxis appear.
The odds of full automotive automation are currently 98%: practically a certainty.
The fifth profession, the one that is most unlikely to be replaced soon, is that of the doctor.
It is clear that we cannot speak of a complete replacement, but the potential for change in human jobs related to the medical field is very high.
Robots built for operating theaters are increasing more and more, improving their performance every year. The healthcare sector was one of the first to approach the benefits of artificial intelligence, and it will be disrupted.
