Over the past few years, there’s been quite a bit of chatter over the jobs that artificial intelligence (A.I.) will destroy. However, it’s also worth examining the human jobs that A.I. will help grow—many of them in tech.
The World Economic Forum, which regularly analyzes the potential impact of A.I. on the economy and unemployment, has a new report that examines how the COVID-19 pandemic could accelerate the automation of many jobs and tasks. As part of that analysis, it also looks at the longer-term impact of A.I. on the international job market.
“Just a few decades ago, the internet created similar concerns as it grew. Despite skepticism, the technology created millions of jobs and now comprises 10% of US GDP,” read the report. “Today, A.I. is poised to create even greater growth in the US and global economies. Sixty-three percent of CEOs believe A.I. will have a larger impact than the internet, according to PwC’s Annual Global CEO Survey.”
