The Impacts of Artificial Intelligence: Employments and Labour

in hive-175254 •  5 months ago 

It is no more news that we are in the era of rapid developments and advancements in technology or simply put - the AI era. Artificial intelligence however showcases numerous benefits and advantages over human labour but at the same time, this advancement in technology is grossly affecting humans in terms of employment.

The invention of robots and the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is posing some threats to man power as robots are gradually reducing the labour force. Hence, there is a great need to consciously set up economic policies to save humans from this impending and existing challenge.

Almost every sector in the world has bought the idea of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning. Meaning that, few workers only will be needed in industries if these robots seem to deliver more than human in the near future. It is incumbent on us to critically examine the future of humans with regards to employment and then position ourselves well intellectually and skillfully.

Recently, we have heard of industries and firms downsizing its workers and this could be attributed to the adoption of artificial intelligence. Truth be told, the benefits of artificial intelligence are very clear such as less time to deliver a job, increased accuracy, less supervision etc.

So, the big question?

Will Artificial Intelligence take the place of humans?

Will technology become a problem to man?

These are questions that require answers because the future is quite uncertain at the moment. Though some experts say AI will only take a narrow range in the world, some see their jobs being at risk. Technology will never cease or degrade rather it can only increase. Meaning more robots and softwares would be built and developed.

Hence, to be on the safe side, it is of high necessity that humans develop themselves technologically and acquire relevant skills like in areas of crytography, cyber security and the likes.. However, let's not conclude that artificial intelligence will be a problem to humans rather focus on the advantages and benefits it brings to the economy.

Dear @tomlee

Thank you for choosing to post within project.hope HIVE/community. Solid read.

Resteemed and upvoted already

It is a pleasure Sir

As smart and as effective as the use of AI is, I don't think humans can ever be replaced in this space.

...to some extent though. Cause there is a tangible replacement already.

So many questions, so few answers

There is always a technological advance that destroys jobs and creates others, it is something of the development of civilizations, I think that coal miners, candle wax producers and whale hunters (who sold their oil as fuel) do not They liked the development of the oil industry and its derivatives, it was something that destroyed many jobs, but I also created other job opportunities.

For now, we are in a time of uncertainty, we are not clear about the future that the massive use of AI will bring us, but I am sure that not everyone will gain what we want, but neither will we all lose everything we have today.

In fact, humans will always be needed to feed data to machines and maintain them. Remember that for now they are programmable and they will always need a human to program them.
Perhaps in the near future it may not be so, because of the great advances; but I don't think they turn against us either, but rather they will help us evolve, be more perfect organisms and develop new, more powerful generations.

I hope it doesn't take too long for human beings to realize that artificial intelligence is limited in how it can impact human factors. The development of new technologies will need to focus on how every human being can contribute and not on the trivial pursuits of overly stimulated lifestyles that lead to global colonization.
