Jobs AI Might Soon Replace
In the era of rapid technological advancements, artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as a powerful force that is capable of automating tasks and transforming various industries.
SInce the release of powerful AI tools such as ChatGPT and Google’s Bard, there have been numerous discussions and theories have been laid out on whether or not AI will replace humans and these discussions have only grown to a point that there is a sense of excitement and fear in the general public.
While AI has undeniably brought about the numerous benefits and efficiencies, it has also raised concerns about the potential impact on the job market. Research conducted shows that few of the white collar jobs that most of the working employees are in for ages will be heavily impacted by the automation done by AI.
In this article by Europe Entrepreneur we are going to discuss the jobs that AI might soon replace. We will shed light on the change that is happening in the work world in the age of automation.
What Jobs will AI replace?
In a recent report from Goldman Sachs, it is estimated that around 300 million jobs could be heavily affected by generative AI, which means 18% of the work globally could be automated. The report also predicts that two thirds of the jobs in Europe and the United States of America will be exposed to some degree of AI automation and around a quarter of all jobs could be performed by AI entirely.
Since ChatGPT was released in November 2022, there has been an exponential rise of its users as many people are using it to write articles and get the required information they need.
ChatGPT is just the tip of the iceberg, what would happen if you had an AI that could easily automate the tasks you do daily ? What would happen if an AI could respond to the requests of the users and give the appropriate answers? Businesses can save millions of dollars by just having an AI that can do the work of hundreds of employees, but that also means that many of us will be unemployed. Here is a list of jobs that AI will replace in the future. If you are in any of these fields or are planning to get into them, think twice before making hasty decisions.
Customer service representatives
Most of the time, the queries and the problems of the customers that the customer care representative gets are repetitive in nature. Answering these questions does not require high emotional or social intelligence and therefore AI can be used to provide automated responses to frequently asked questions.
The questions asked are mostly around the subject of delivery status, payment confirmation, order cancellation, or the refund status of the order. Such questions can be easily answered by bots that will be more equipped with artificial intelligence.
Data Entry Operators
AI algorithms have the massive potential to replace manual data entry operators as it has the ability to process vast amounts of data quickly and accurately without any human error. Automated data extraction and machine learning techniques can now easily handle routine data entry tasks more efficiently, reducing the need for human intervention.
Assembly Line Workers
AI powered robots and machines have shown a great potential in performing repetitive and physically demanding tasks on the assembly lines and with the advancements in robotics and computer vision, AI can handle complex manufacturing processes, leading to increased precision and productivity while minimizing errors.
AI powered chatbots and virtual assistants have made significant strides in natural language processing and conversational capabilities, and as a result, they are increasingly being used to handle customer queries and provide support, potentially replacing the need for telemarketers in certain industries.
Truck and taxi Drivers
Ride hailing services such as Uber, Ola, and Lyft have revolutionized the taxi business. These companies are now focusing more on autonomous driving, where robots drive the cars. It might sound impossible, but it is not, as it is clearly becoming inevitable that taxis and buses will soon be driven by robots and fully autonomous in the coming years. Tesla cars are already automated, and seeing the response it is getting from the users, new AI features are added to new models of the cars by Tesla and other companies.
The AI powers self driving cars and drones can easily navigate routes, make deliveries, and transport goods with minimal human intervention. This raises concerns about the future of drivers and delivery personnel in general.
Stock traders and financial analysts
AI systems that are equipped with machine learning algorithms can analyze vast amounts of financial data, identify common patterns and make data driven investment decisions. Such capabilities of AI challenges the traditional role of the stock traders and financial analysts, as AI can execute trades more swiftly and accurately.
Proofreaders and Translators
There are many AI powered tools such as Grammarly, Quillbolt and Zapier for writers that can be used to self check their own writing. The natural language processing capabilities of such AI tools allows writers to check their writing for readability issues, grammatical errors and spelling errors.
I am a writer, use grammarly frequently to check the minor errors in grammar and sentence formation.
With the advent of AI powered travel platforms and virtual assistants, individuals can now plan and book their trips online with ease. AI can provide personalized recommendations, suggest itineraries, and handle booking processes, potentially diminishing the demand for human travel agents.
In conclusion, As AI continues and evolves , there are certain jobs that may be at risk of being replaced or transformed. These are the jobs that you need to stay away from now on and start preparing for the jobs that AI won’t replace.
However, it is important to note that AI also creates new opportunities and generates a demand for emerging roles that leverages human creativity, problem solving and emotional intelligence. Humans can survive the AI dominance on work when they learn how to use AI and implement it in their respective fields.
When you know how to use AI, you are one step ahead of everyone else who are still ignorant about the fact that AI is here and it is here to stay.
