An article that I read that was interesting was from Forbes which talked about how the workplace is about to change forever. Here are two ways that AI will change careers for young professionals;
- Optimists say AI will create more jobs
- A study of 1,000 companies revealed that AI systems created new jobs in 80% of the organizations they were implemented in. In fact, a 2017 Gartner report predicts that AI will create 500,000 more jobs than it will displace over the next three years
- Pessimists say AI will replace workers completely
- In contrast to this optimistic view, Gallup suggests that Millennials are the most vulnerable generation to the threats AI poses, with 37% of Millennials being at risk of redundancy. But redundancy isn’t just a short-term problem for young professionals. A McKinsey report states that half of today’s work activities could be automated by 2055, or in more extreme scenarios, up to 20 years earlier.
