How Much Will AI Affect Jobs in the U.S?

Automation is creating a real buzz in multiple arenas. From robotics to warehousing, automation is the order of the day. Many people believe it will also real issues by dramatically impacting our ability to make a living. With robots replacing laborers in manufacturing vehicles and artificial intelligence (AI) many people believe that the AI and IoT will begin  simply killing the job sectors.

Which Industries are Affected the most by Automation?

There isn’t a single industry that isn’t going to be affected in some way by automation in the coming months and years. In fact,  automation has the potential to replace factory workers, miners, travel agents and bank tellers. It can not only do the job but it can do it more safely in a way that will preserve the lives of humans.

Automated technology threatens 2.2 to 3.1 million people around the globe, who are involved in the transportation sector. In addition,  software today has the capability of assessing substantial volumes of documents, thus, eliminating most of the professionals in IT. With the advances in these software programs it doesn’t really matter what kind of occupation you have, you can be replaced.

While we do understand that automation is depriving people of their jobs, there is a brighter side to the story. People with tech skills are greatly in demand because without them an automation system cannot be installed or operated.

Is the World Going to Suffer from Mass Unemployment?

Well, studies did show  that  artificial intelligence jobs and automation would adversely impact the various working sectors the chances of mass unemployment are quite unlikely. In order to reverse the detrimental effects of automation, it is necessary for the people to have at least some sort of knowledge in the tech field. Even medical personnel and lawyers need to learn the usage of contemporary tools so that they can stay abreast of ongoing changes.

Now that we know which sectors are going to be affected  which  professions have no reason to worry?

Which Industries are not to be Affected by Automation?

Automation would not be able to kill the jobs that require interpersonal skills and empathy. Can you imagine programmed robots as psychiatrists helping you to deal with life’s complex issues? Consultants communicate and extend affection for treating and curing people. Same goes for teachers imparting knowledge. Nurses, personal trainers, makeup artists, hairdressers, are also going to be very difficult to replace using technology. These are a few places where technology will assist, but cannot replace those –in the field. If you’re looking for a career change that is future proof, there are a few to choose from.

Deep Learning Vs Machine Learning And Its Affect On Jobs

Machine learning and Deep learning. Two analytic and data building concepts that have changed the game in many ways when it comes to jobs and how they are received, achieved, and handled. First, we need to cover our basis here and explain to those that don’t know the difference between the two, exactly what those differences are.

What is Machine Learning (ML)?

Before AI came machine learning. The basis for machine learning is that a collection of data is put into a specific system(this system doesn’t even have to be great) and once that data is placed, the machine will use what data it has to form an outcome. To break it down, consider the concept of storm prediction. Much data is placed within the system and from there it’s possible predict an upcoming storm.

What is Deep Learning?

Deep learning is the feeding of data into a computer system. One this is done, the computer then begins making decisions in regards to other data. These data decisions are then fed through the neural networks just like with machine leaning. However, unlike machine learning, it’s quite a bit more complex in it’s binary true and false questions due to its logical constructions.

How Machine Learning And Deep Learning Affects Jobs

We’ve been developing AI for quite some time. Machine learning and deep learning and its affect on the job industry really depends on the industry, what these AI’s will be doing, and countless other concepts. For the moment, while AI has been put into place in various areas, those jobs that AI has “taken over” has opened up avenues for different jobs and has forced millions to simply add another area of expertise to the table of skills.

Some believe in the theory that AI will simply take over and leave thousands, if not millions, of people out of work. It’s possible that there will be a mild level of displacement for certain areas, but again, this theory isn’t sound enough to merit the “horror” that some have of AI. The entire concept of AI is to aid in the process of advancement and not to simply bring forth an army of robots to “do it all”.

Consider the duel partnership of surgeons and AI systems that save lives on a daily basis. It’s highly doubtful that doctors will become extinct from Machine or Deep Learning. This concept, alone, labels certain areas of success with the incorporation of AI. Without a doubt, the thought of too much artificial intelligence within the job industry is a fear for many people of varying industries. Some experts are concerned that AI and all that goes with it, will have a negative impact on the work force.

While it is true that AI has replaced specific roles in the job industry, the pros and cons can be measured in equal balance. There are areas that will see a decrease in the need of workers, yet there are also greater advances and areas of expertise to fill in the process of keeping up with the future of AI, Deep Learning, and Machine Learning. Thus far, the idea of AI is still looked upon in a positive light.
