The Rise of AI: Will Robots Take Your Business or Job Next?

The Rise of AI

Do you think the rise of AI will erase your job? If you visit the website Will Robots Take My Job?  You can enter your profession. Then you will be told how likely it is your role will be replaced by artificial intelligence.

It’s a worrying glimpse into the future. This website shows how much technology is taking over the modern world.

And we are seeing signs of this happening already. Intelligent robots can already do most manual, unskilled work, and websites nowadays have AI chatbots where there were once real-life, flesh-and-blood customer service representatives.

The rise of AI

Although this rise of the machines might seem like something out of a science fiction movie, the changes will be gradual. Thus in general, AI will be designed to benefit as many people as possible.

Artificial intelligence is undoubtedly set to reshape the landscape of business and society, but there will always be a need for human input.

AI Will Replace Some Jobs

There’s no getting around the fact that some jobs can be done much more cheaply and effectively by computers. Computers don’t need benefits or vacations.

This will include jobs in manufacturing, customer service, insurance underwriting, and data entry. Although this may seem disastrous for many hard-working people, it is hardly different from any other paradigm shift in history.

The Industrial Revolution disrupted the farming industry, Uber disrupted taxis, and streaming services disrupted the media industry. So many farmers, taxi drivers, and record shop owners have been put out of business by advances in technology. Hence, the rise of artificial intelligence is simply the next in a long line of historical disruptions.

Humans Still Needed in the Rise of AI

Even though many jobs may be replaced, this doesn’t mean humans will become defunct. Firstly, there are several professions it seems unlikely could ever be replaced by technology—the arts and creative industries for one.

Computers are a long way off being able to comprehend the emotions and personal experiences. Emotional input is required to create a classic work of literature, an Oscar-winning film, a beautiful painting, or a romantic love song.

Although there have been examples of AI programs analyzing thousands of pieces of art and creating their own dubious masterpieces. This technology is far from being anywhere near an adequate replacement for a human mind.

The technology that is being used for artificial intelligence is constantly growing and becoming more complex. And the number of people that are necessary to grow this technology is getting bigger and bigger with the rise of AI.

AI needs to be created, monitored, trained, maintained, and adapted to different industries and ways of working. However, these type of jobs can’t be done without the input people.

  • Hi Lisa, there’s no stopping progress and AI is definitely the wave of the future. While it does offer many conveniences and shortcuts, it is troubling that so many people will lose their jobs. I’m doing my part by refusing to use automated check-out machines in stores, but it likely won’t help much in the long run. Hopefully, there are enough retraining courses available. Glad you mentioned creative arts! As you said, there is no substitute for human emotion and talent. I also don’t think AI will ever take over caregiving jobs. 🙂 Excellent article; thank you!

    • Hi Deb, glad you were able to comment on this one. I agree with those automated check-outs. Not my favorite thing and oftentimes I still need a person to come fix them 🙂 Yes, they cannot replace human emotion, ever. I can’t imagaine a robotic nurse but I guess it could happen. Thanks Deb and enjoy the rest of your week. Take care!

  • We just added an AI chatbot to our website. I don’t know if it technically AI since I programmed all of the questions and all of the answers, but either way its pretty cool for a furniture manufacturer to have a chatbot considering we still make furniture like we did 45 years ago. I think AI will change everything and I am excited to watch.

    • Hi Ira, yes, that is considered AI, as you won’t have to answer those questions one by one now 🙂 Welcome to Inspire To Thrive. Now, will the furniture making become automated too with robots? You got my curiousity on that one. Thanks for coming by Ira!

  • Hi Lisa, i think we’re safe in our time.

    People who’ll be living hundred years from now, they have plenty of worrying material.
    In other words- no matter how smart A.I. gets, it’ll never be able to replace most human work.

    • Hi Nikoka, I hope you are right. I think you are though, I remember being told that we would have no paperwork today and yet, we still have LOTS of it! And going to the store- cashing out takes longer with the computerized systems. Funny how that all happened. Thanks for coming by Nikola and have a great day!

  • Hi Lisa,

    You’ve explained the thing really well. And I think you’ve said almost everything about the AI matter as a summary .
    As you said, there is always a need for human. The form of job will be changed and human will reform themselves for that.
    Thanks for sharing this nice thought. It made me thinking for some time.

    Liton

    • Hi Liton, yes, humans will be needed still. It will be for different types of jobs though. Just like years ago we thought they would be no “paper” work but guess what? There is still a lot of “paperwork” that needs to be done. Thanks for your input and have a great day!

  • Hi Lisa,

    I think rise of artificial intelligence will surely affect jobs in long run. But still humans are needed to make, run and manage machines. AI can be a substitute of manpower but it can never be a substitute of human efficiency. Nice article, love to read?
