Will AI Take My Job?

As AI technology has rapidly evolved and becomes a topic of conversation as it slowly gets integrated into our day-to-day lives, there have been a lot of growing concerns among the general population about job security. AI has the ability to streamline multiple processes that would often take real people hours to accomplish on their own. AI automation is currently used with human workers, but as it evolves, many ask, "Will AI take my job?"

There's no hard and fast answer to that question, unfortunately. As AI and its influence become a crucial part of our lives that we can't live without, it may likely replace certain jobs, especially if it means companies can reduce the amount of money they spend on hiring and paying employees. However, the fear-mongering point stirred by media coverage is inaccurate because there will always be specific jobs that only humans can do. 

As helpful as AI technology can be for things like customer service, some jobs like teaching and psychology require a human touch because, at the core, humans crave human interaction, and a machine wouldn't be able to provide the same level of care and attention. It's also important to remember that every new form of technology on the market has changed the job landscape. At one point, operators helped people using their phones connect with somebody else, but you'd be hard-pressed to find somebody doing that job now because it's no longer necessary. However, companies have also added many jobs specific to the new technology on the market now. For example, 20 years ago, being a professional digital media strategist was a career nobody would have predicted because the technology didn't exist. The same is true with AI. AI is poised to create millions of jobs in new technological sectors as it becomes a more significant part of our personal and professional lives.

AI is changing different job sectors at the moment, but it's happening on a much slower scale than people seem to think will happen. Right now, it's being used to make employees' lives easier by helping them plan out and automate specific tasks that they often didn't enjoy doing anyway. AI may automate certain jobs down the line making some of them obsolete, but it is poised to create a variety of new jobs and help people in some sectors streamline their tasks so they can work smarter, not harder.
