AI will take some jobs, but mass unemployment isn’t inevitable 💡
🤖 Recent advancements in AI have left many fearing for their jobs but the impact of the technology on employment should not be so cynical as history tells us.
🧐 Although AI can automate some tasks, that puts jobs that involve repetitive data input and basic decision-making at risk.
🤝 The most beneficial scenario is the amalgamation of AI with human roles, where people are still required to offer the complex decision-making skills or that human touch technology currently lacks.
💪 Governments should promote AI literacy, critical thinking, and lifelong learning programs that provide citizens with the skills that are required to prosper in an AI-driven economy.
🧐 While policy-makers should facilitate job placement support and retraining programs, it’s also up to individuals to educate themselves and stay up-to-date with changes in different industries.
🤖 We can balance the potential benefits of the tech with the immediate human cost, and aid workers to transition to new, future-proof roles and industries in which they can thrive.
