T.The AI revolution is underway, and this futuristic wave of change is changing the way we live, work, and play.
Naturally, many of us are concerned about its potential impact on the job market.
Will AI take our jobs?
The answer is yes…unless you learn to surf.
and ZipRecruiter Survey A survey conducted in early 2023 found that 62% of people were concerned that ChatGPT and other AI tools could replace their jobs, with Gen Z (76 %) and those without a high school diploma (72%).
And frankly, who can blame them?
according to March 2023 report According to Goldman Sachs, approximately 66% of current jobs in the US and Europe are “somewhat exposed to AI automation,” while about 25% of all jobs could be performed by AI.
and elsewhere study, OpenAI (creator of ChatGPT), in collaboration with non-profit research institute OpenResearch and the University of Pennsylvania, found that 80% of U.S. employees believe that at least 10% of their tasks can be influenced by AI. I discovered something. On the other hand, about 19% of staff believe that at least 50% of their work is impacted.
Is it dark enough for you?
Well, I have good news for you. But before we get into that, let’s talk about what types of jobs will be affected, including potential new job opportunities.
So which jobs are likely to be replaced by AI?
A job that has one or more of the characteristics outlined below. The more that applies to your work, the more likely your work will be affected.
- It involves performing routine and repetitive tasks.
- Contain a standardized set of rules or procedures
- Includes physical tasks that follow a fixed, predictable pattern
- Includes data processing and analysis
- Includes basic decision-making based on data and common patterns
- No creativity or human judgment involved
- No need to understand human emotions
To further illustrate, here are some examples of occupations that may be at risk:
Technical jobs (e.g. software development, data analysis, etc.)
Although demand for computer programming is high, ChatGPT and similar AI tools may replace programmers.
Because AI is good at processing numbers quickly and accurately.
For example, ChatGPT can already write code much faster than humans.
OpenAI is already thinking of Replace software engineers with AI.
Media-related jobs (advertising, content production, technical writing, etc.)
ChatGPT and other AI tools are also having a huge impact on the media industry.
That’s because AI is now at a stage where it can read, write, and understand language-based data very well. And it will get even better over time.
For this reason, media companies are starting to use AI tools to create content instead of relying solely on human writers.
customer service job
Customer service chatbots are getting smarter. It won’t be long before AI-powered chatbots that can understand the nuances of customer requests become the norm.
There are still limits to what AI can do. Therefore, there will be some jobs that only humans can do.
So what kind of jobs will stand the test of time?
Basically, jobs that require one or more of the following “human” qualities that AI can’t replicate are:
- human creativity is involved
- Includes human empathy, emotional intelligence, and understanding of human emotions and behavior
- It includes the ability to engage and connect with others on an emotional level to build deep relationships and trust.
- Effective communication and/or negotiation skills required
- Includes critical thinking, strategic planning and decision making
- It includes the ability to adapt to new situations, solve complex problems, and handle unpredictable situations.
- Human judgment and intuition are involved
- with leadership
Examples of jobs with these qualities include CEOs, teachers, counselors, surgeons, human resources managers, marketing professionals, and copywriters.
As @Navy It says:
“Automation means that nothing has to be done twice. All that is left is creativity and judgment.”
While AI will inevitably automate and replace some jobs, the flip side is that this AI revolution will also result in new job opportunities.
So not everything is hopeless and bleak.
These jobs include existing AI-related jobs that will grow in demand over time, as well as new jobs created as a result of AI.
Below are just a few examples of new job opportunities that have already been found.
- Prompt Writers: As AI language models like ChatGPT proliferate across industries, there is a new demand for professionals called “prompt writers”. These experts specialize in crafting effective prompts that direct AI models to produce accurate, relevant, and valuable output based on a user’s specific requirements.
- AI Developers: As AI systems become more sophisticated, the demand for this group of experts to design such systems will continue to grow. AI developers and engineers are responsible for writing specific algorithms, building neural networks, and developing natural language processing capabilities.
- AI Consultants and Strategists: As companies around the world adopt AI, AI consultants and strategists help companies develop strategies to leverage AI technology and implement AI-based solutions that improve their current operations. will increase the need for
- AI-assisted medical professionals: This is a great example of new roles in non-tech industries. A person who specializes in the operation and maintenance of AI-assisted medical systems. As the use of AI in healthcare increases, including the use of AI algorithms in disease diagnosis and treatment planning, the need for professionals who can manage and maintain these systems will grow.
The good news I mentioned above. As the AI revolution continues, you can “AI prove” your work and prepare for this new world. More importantly, you can leverage AI to make your position irreplaceable. Here’s how:
1. Work with AI, not against it
As AI becomes more prevalent in the workplace, we must learn how to work with it, not against it.
By taking advantage of strengths to compensate for weaknesses (or vice versa).
This is what is commonly called collaborative intelligence, and it can combine the speed, accuracy, and efficiency of AI with human qualities such as creativity, emotional intelligence, and social skills.
result? You will make yourself irreplaceable.
In practice, this means using AI at work to automate routine tasks, optimize some of your current work processes, and allow you to focus on other, more important aspects like planning and creative thinking. it may appear to do. Doing so will make your work more efficient and productive.
A good example is content creation. Sadly, many writers will be replaced by AI. But for some, he will learn to research and draft with AI, and then learn to use his own creativity, empathy, and human experience to improve. These writers will write better content than his AI and will write faster than most humans.
As a machine language engineer, @svpinosays:
“AI will not replace you. People who use AI will.”
2. Learn and develop new skills
Another way to prepare is to learn and develop new skills and knowledge.
Start learning about AI prompts and algorithms that help you get the most out of powerful tools like ChatGPT. Also, if you work in a technical field such as software development, take the time to learn popular AI programming languages such as Java, Python, and R.
At the same time, don’t just focus on your difficult skills at work. Instead, it develops soft “human” skills that cannot be replaced by AI. Skills like these will become increasingly important in this new world of AI and can set you apart.
3. Get the latest in AI development
Read industry publications and authoritative websites and blogs, follow thought leaders and influencers, attend conferences and workshops, and interact with other experts in your field Stay up to date on the latest trends, developments and tools in AI by
By doing so, you can better understand how such developments will affect your industry and your work, prepare for what lies ahead, and learn how to leverage AI as part of your work. increase. This is especially important if you work in an industry where disruption is likely.
Here are some great AI resources you can refer to:
4. Be open to new opportunities
AI will take over some jobs. Others may be created or merged. If you want to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to AI, you need to step out of your comfort zone and be open to new opportunities.
Whether you’re learning a new programming language (like prompt engineering) or working in an entirely new industry (like self-driving cars), don’t be afraid to try something new.
5. Explore jobs that require creativity, empathy, and relationships
And when you face difficulties and lose your job, try to replace it with a real human job. This goes back to the soft skills mentioned above.
The tsunami is gaining speed. don’t ignore it. do not be afraid. Grab your surfboard and start paddling. You may find yourself doing better than ever and enjoying the ride.
