A long time ago, when machines first came into our lives during the Industrial Revolution, many were worried that these inventions would take away people’s jobs. Surprisingly, that didn’t happen. People still had jobs, and they were the ones in charge of running the machines in factories. But now, with the amazing invention of artificial intelligence (AI), the worry about job loss has returned.
Experts think that AI might take over a lot of jobs, more than 300 million of them, because of automation in the United States and Europe. This means that instead of people doing certain jobs, computers and machines might do them. And this wouldn’t just affect individual jobs; it could change the whole economic system.
But don’t worry too much! There are some jobs where people will still be better than AI. Let’s talk about three kinds of jobs where humans will be the winners. First, there are jobs that need real creativity. This means making new things not just by following a rule but by coming up with your own ideas. Jobs like graphic design involve creativity, but even those might be taken over by AI.
Second, there are jobs where having a good relationship with other people is really important. Think about nursing, business consulting, or investigative journalism. These jobs need humans to understand others very well, and that’s something AI can’t do as good as people.
Third, there are jobs that need solving really hard problems in tricky situations. Jobs related to electricity, gas, and energy fall into this category. Making these jobs automatic with machines is not easy. And the most important job that AI can’t replace is being a doctor. So, for now, people don’t have to worry about losing these kinds of jobs because of AI.
