There is no point denying the general attention towards artificial intelligence, which is becoming an increasingly protagonist in our lives. Scientists are attracted by the potential of AI and new technological machines, which are increasingly advanced and powerful. For this reason, it is legitimate to ask what the future of these tools is, whether they will really be able to take possession of our daily lives and replace human jobs.
We have seen more than a few films "against" AI, which showed the negative side of the technology 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 in our technological evolution to artificial intelligence.
If we think about all the benefits that technology brings to our lives, we should be happy about the arrival of new tools based on artificial intelligence. Rather, the problem is us: we need to organize our lives 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 the five human jobs that could easily be replaced by AI.
Rather than talking about replacement, perhaps it would be more correct to talk about "change". With the advent of artificial intelligence, these areas will certainly undergo changes, as will people who have been working 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 a few years now, the receptionist's job has been partially replaced by automatic machinery.
This is the case of promotional calls, which are increasingly managed by computers and not by real people.
In the future, the role of the receptionist could slowly disappear, completely replaced by artificial intelligence.
In the world of printing, as well as in that of publishing, 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 a possibility that proofreaders will be replaced by artificial intelligence.
Market research analysts
Analysts, those who interpret market research, are still in high demand. They help manage marketing and financial strategies, creating a reliable plan that is consistent with the brand message.
Lately, however, we have seen the birth of several automatic tools, dedicated precisely 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 AI-based tools.
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 chances of full automation of the automotive industry 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 talk about a complete replacement, but the potential for change in human jobs related to the medical field is very high.
The number of robots built for operating rooms is 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.
