AI News, Will robots take your job? Quarter of US workers at risk artificial intelligence

The Rise of the Robot Reporter

In addition to leaning on the software to generate minor league and college game stories, The A.P., like Bloomberg, has used it to beef up its coverage of company earnings reports.

“When you start to talk about mass media, with national or international reach, you run the risk of losing the interest of readers who are interested in stories on their smaller communities,” Mr. Gilbert said.

During the Olympics, for instance, The Post set up alerts on Slack, the workplace messaging system, to inform editors if a result was 10 percent above or below an Olympic world record.

For an earnings report article, for instance, software systems may meet their match in companies that cleverly choose figures in an effort to garner a more favorable portrayal than the numbers warrant.

Will a robot take your job? It's more likely than you think

Robots aren’t replacing everyone, but a quarter of U.S. jobs will be severely disrupted as artificial intelligence accelerates the automation of existing work, according to a new Brookings Institution report.

Though the United States is in the middle of its second longest expansion in history, and jobs data suggest that the economy remains healthy, many business leaders and economists have suggested in surveys that the United States could slip into a recession in 2020.  Some economic studies have found that similar shifts toward automating production happened in the early part of previous recessions — and may have contributed to the “jobless recovery” that followed the 2008 financial crisis.

“In the hotel industry, instead of five people manning a desk to greet people, there’s one and people basically serve themselves.” Many economists find that automation has an overall positive effect on the labor market, said Matias Cortes, an assistant professor at York University in Toronto who was not involved with the Brookings report.

But Cortes said there’s no doubt there are “clear winners and losers.” In the recent past, those hardest hit were men with low levels of education who dominated manufacturing and other blue-collar jobs, and women with intermediate levels of education who dominated clerical and administrative positions.

This is the future of work

Well if you work or have roles in the following fields you might want to pay attention: Those are the major industries supposedly most under threat with among those at highest risk, with robotics and artificial intelligence threatening to automate in the neighborhood of 70 percent of tasks, according to the study.

The usual finding here occur where they see activities involving processing, data collection and physical labor are quite unsurprisingly the most at risk here.

I’m not so sure, since this disruption will be occurring in many fields at the same time where skill-shortages in new emerging fields are highly likely, think of cybersecurity for example where the shortage will be chronic.

For instance, “Youth, and less educated workers, along with underrepresented groups all appear likely to face significantly more acute challenges from automation in the coming years,” according to the study.

As a futurist I keep my eye on this and the narratives we tell ourselves, countless studies point to the real impact of automation and the breaking point of its entry into the mainstream appears to be around 2025, that’s when automation starts to get more serious in how it scales.

In an AIoT (artificially intelligent internet of things) more organizations will combine artificial intelligence and robotic process automation to create digital workers.

Now algorithms scan resumes for desired keywords, and chat bots arrange interviews with candidates even with early stage screening done now totally with AI.

As 4IR countries emerge such as Japan, South Korea and China, how we think of tasks and working with AI is significantly different, and automation is accelerated by widespread change not just impacting manufacturing or isolated jobs, but entire industries being transformed in a single generation.
