As Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are making their ways in the market there will be a time surely when there will not arise any requirement of developers and IT professionals. The technical bugs will get fixed by the machines themselves. Lot of manual work will be automated.
The labor market of the United States has been changing rapidly than it looked earlier before two decades. Events that occurred over these decades changed the whole perspective of the working-class. Great Recession also plays an important role in the evolution of jobs along with their locations. In the upcoming years, the cinematic movement of automation technologies will escalate the speed of modifications.
Automation won’t be evenly spread across the places
According to a recent study, less than 5% will get automated in their overall work profile of the job. While 60% of the jobs have their 50% chances in the assigned work where automation can wave off the employee’s job with the implementation of the technology.
All of a sudden, the robots won’t take up the jobs. It can be observed as a steady process where men get replaced by a machine gradually. All the employees will have to adjust as machines will take the routine work as well as some physical tasks as demand for work is rapidly increasing which involves creative, socio-emotional, creative as well as a high level of cognitive skills.
There are several structures in the organization with various timelines for the global adaptation of automation technologies in the overall work of the States.
The local markets and economies are the hardest hit by the automation technology.
Automation affecting the largest occupational categories in the States
The large tide of automation will drastically influence the largest employment sector in the country’s economy.The major occupations are as follows: office support, Food-service, production work, service sectors along with retail sales. As automation has already developed its roots in the economy. Nearly 40% of the jobs in the United States are for the time being in the vocational sector which is likely to get reduced from this year to the next decade.
The common aspects which play an important role in reducing unemployment are because it includes routine as well as physical tasks. The diversified roles are destructing all the sectors of the economy irrespective of their immunity from this huge wave of automation and its destruction.
The changes will not be seen as sudden massive unemployment though there are many organizations that will hire fewer staff and workers. Administrative assistants, payrolls, and other clerical work are getting replaced by automation. As you must have observed the trend of using help desk automation and chat bots to solves the issues instantly which an individual encounters. Loss of jobs amounted to lakhs from this year 2012 until now. Even though the reduction in the jobless class has nothing to hamper the US economy and it was growing at a rapid rate as the economy created more jobs.
The USA economy is expected more occupational jobs until the next decade looking at the rise in population along with the skilled workforce. Though jobs in certain sectors such as rental clerks and counter attendants may decline still the govt invites applicants in healthcare, creative art fields, and among all the business services.
Impact of AI on the overall job market
Around one-fourth of jobs in the United States is likely to get affected by Automation and AI.
As the sudden boost and features of AI include almost everything which can get automated, the overall job industry would be devastated.
The manufacturing industry, agricultural industry, retail industry, transportation industry along with the hospitality industry are more likely to get overblown when compared to other industries.
If the economy is going to face a recession then it might escalate the shift in the vicinity of automation as many businesses run out of funds and often search for the alternative for reducing the expenses which get incurred by the company.
When the overall conversation of AI and the job market lay down more emphasis on the capabilities of automation and how it is rapidly decreasing the number of workers.
The experts and professionals are even finding ways to look and develop job opportunities which may provide certain benefits to the unemployed class of people and guide them with the ways to keep themselves away from unemployment.
In 2018, a report developed by the World Economic Forum revealed that AI would further aid in creating new and fresh jobs for around 58 million by the year 2022.
The same report also postulated that the AI will discard 75 million jobs by the year 2022 and the disposable extension will enclose brand new job profiles of around 133 million.
More employers are looking forward to the methods to stretch their distant employees and depend on various contractors for their professional needs and deeds.
The Future of the Work Will be Different
The future can be predicted as per the ongoing demand and popularity of AI among individuals.
It can be certainly said that in the upcoming years the work performance will be more efficient, productivity will increase along with an increase in the workforce.
As per the current scenario of companies, the workforce is over-occupied with the bureaucratic process and administrative work. Moreover in the next few years, such administrative and bureaucratic tasks will get processed by Artificial Intelligence.
Along with the time, AI and humans are going to work together and where AI will function as an assistant to humans. The tasks where AI comes into the picture will be performing by mechanizing more number of tasks.
AI will cause turmoil, expansion, and improvisation across various work processes.
This will further facilitate a more customized approach among the employees in the organization and where colleagues interact with each other in a more sympathetic manner.
The companies that work along with implementing AI along with employees will enhance more productivity, systematic, and more civilized.
However, it can be made clear from the article that the companies which work in their traditional ways without integrating AI will face more challenges and obstructions in the near future.
The technology and implementation of AI in the correct method will eradicate all the complications that the company might face in the subsequent years.
