Career Development

  • Encourage more creative and artistic jobs. How many times have you heard people complain that their job doesn't allow them to be creative? Being creative is one of the things AI is worst at. If it takes over the mundane portions and frees up resources for creativity, that may mean a new job for you.

  • New customers means more job openings. If AI improves retention and grows customers, they will still need humans to handle the new clients.

  •  

  • More data analysis. We forget that the kind of data analysis AI can do is not really the top level kind managers and executives want. AI can increase the amount of insights gleaned from data, opening up new positions for people to organize and present it in a useful way for other humans.

  • Independent Contractor Pool. The Internet has already made it much easier to start the kinds of businesses that used to require a lot of equipment and personnel. As AI accelerates that trend more people can start a business they previously only dreamed of.

  • MEPD systems integration. The most obvious one to my mind. AI requires human developers to optimize it, develop it, and keep it running. The more AI we use, the more human programmers we'll need.

Brynjolfsson is an economist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and co-author of The Second Machine Age, a book that asks what jobs will be left once software has perfected the art of driving cars, translating speech and other tasks once considered the domain of humans.

"The computer processor doubles in power every 18 months, 10 times greater every five years, it's a very different scale of advancement and it's affecting a broader set of the economy than the steam engine did, in terms of all the cognitive tasks. It's happening a lot faster and more pervasively than before."

 

 

 Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, who spotted that the number of transistors packed into a chip doubles about every 18 months. In the 40-plus years since he made that observation the transistor count of computer processors has climbed from 2,300 to more than four billion, and with each doubling comes a leap in the sophistication of the logic the chip can handle.

"The accumulated doubling of Moore's Law, and the ample doubling still to come, gives us a world where supercomputer power becomes available to toys in just a few years, where ever-cheaper sensors enable inexpensive solutions to previously intractable problems, and where science fiction keeps becoming reality," Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee, associate director of the Center for Digital Business at MIT, write in the book.
