Learn how to leverage the benefits of modern technology in the workplace
In just the United States, AI automation could kill 73 million jobs by the year 2030.
The number of jobs being killed on a global level is just as dire. Over 800 million workers could find themselves displaced because of AI automation.
That number is staggering. It should be worrisome. Maintaining full employment on the individual level will require many changes in the coming years. Many societies are based on manufacturing and agriculture.
How are we going to make sure that people who want a job in an automated future are going to have one?
Automation Creates Jobs Through Technology
Although up to 1 in 2 jobs in agricultural and manufacturing sectors could eventually be replaced through AI automation, new jobs will be created. Workers will be required to service equipment and software.
There will be a need to design and manufacture new equipment.
Automation will also create higher levels of productivity that corporations will need to manage with administrative expertise.
There will also be added jobs in infrastructure, renewable energy, and new technology categories we may have not yet dreamed up.
If you’re working in a physical job right now, automation is a clear threat to your employment. That is why the time is now to explore how technology could save your future paychecks.
How to Find New Jobs for People Who Need Them
Switching to a new career is a very real possibility for millions of workers in the near future.
There are three risks that must be managed in this transition.
#1. Ensure that high-skill workers are not forced into low-paying, low-skill jobs.
#2. Education to provide meaningful skill development so those who are in a mid-career position can continue moving upward.
#3. Income supports for those who struggle to find opportunities in an automated economy.
We have already seen big failures occur in this area during the global recession in 2007. Governments failed repetitively to retrain workers who lost their jobs or had their careers eliminated.
That means it is up to us to provide the resources that will be needed in the coming days. We’ll be able to help one another through technology.
It could take up to 12 weeks to get the basics of coding down that would make an individual employable at an entry-level position. Imagine what could happen if the same results could be produced without the need to learn how to code to get started?
That is our future. Automation is going to happen one day. It may happen slowly, or it may happen quickly. If we create and use tools that help to level the playing field in this new economy right now, then we can save the jobs that will be killed through AI automation.
