Artificial Intelligence (AI) poses a threat to eliminate a variety of jobs today through automation. To define, AI makes it possible for machines to learn human-like tasks through experience. Computers can now handle many tasks and process large amounts of information and patterns in data. This is a serious threat to society and how we run business and livelihoods.
The Threat of Mass Unemployment
If computers replace employees, what would that look like? Research shows that we could have a mass unemployment on our hands. The top positions that would disappear are real estate brokers, sports referees, and insurance claims adjusters because AI would be able to handle these roles well and it would be cheaper.
People would act out in fear if this happened. Lawyers, managers, writers, and other white-collar workers would perhaps be in rebellion in society out of frustration and lack of work. They could be replaced by AI.
People have thought for years that computers would never be able to replace people for different reasons. A few of them include the ability to:
• Show empathy
• Be emotional
However, as time passes, these are becoming more and more part of the AI capabilities. Two decades ago, this was unfathomable but it’s possible today. Those that work on the continued development of AI have even begun to show signs of concern for the future and what the capabilities look like.
A revolution of white-collar workers could be a potential result to AI taking their jobs in the future. Their skillsets would enable them to be organized. They would gain sympathy from those around them and would show them they could potentially lose their jobs too.
The underlying problem of a potential revolt would be a politico-economic system that does not separate wealth and state and focuses on wealth above all else. The AI takeover would hurt us all because the problem is a political one rather than a technological one.
AI will displace a working society and have people aimlessly trying to walk through life which is not productive for these people or society as a whole.
AI is something to pay attention to since it is a threat and one that only continues to grow. The job market as we know it today is changing and will look quite different as the years go by. What should we do as a society to improve this situation? AI appears to be here to stay and we need to think through what that looks like and how to handle it for the future.
