Artificial Intelligence is here to transform everything from our daily business lives. It is impacting both positive and negative manners. The widespread use of AI machines and software also infuses some great fears in the minds of humans. The experts, the tech-savvy, and even the common people are aware by now how technology replacing human jobs. The questions and concerns have shifted to when and how, and which jobs will vanish first.

If we look at the current situation, we are in the middle of the AI development phase. It has not grown to its full extent. Moreover, it is in the initial stages as it was a few years ago. These days AI is intelligent enough to do a single job that Is there and trained to do. This makes it perfect to take over low-skilled tasks and manual functions. Center for Business and Economic Research, Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana recently released a report claiming that AI technology replacing human jobs in the US whether low-skilled or manual.

AI Replacing Jobs

To answers that most common question: what jobs will AI replace? Let’s have a look at a few low-skilled and manual tasks to give us surety about technology replacing human jobs.

Data Entry Clerks

Whenever you think about the low-skilled and manual jobs. Data entry pops somewhere in my mind. The job of a data entry clerk is boring and requires sitting in one place and typing. No one would want to do that in an advanced world and that’s why this one is the first to be part of AI
 
Replacing conventional data entry approaches with new and automated systems reduces the risk of error. It also allows faster, safer, and more responsive data entry processes. Automated data entry will maintain a high level of reliability while doing the work in a much shorter time. And unlike us, it’s not going to get burnt at all. 

Drivers 

The concept of self-driving cars and the pace at which they’re base is enough to cover this one. Tesla is the most popular one but other companies like Uber, despite the problems, are making success in this niche. As a result of their innovation, semi-automated cars are already here and it won’t take long for fully autonomous vehicles to take over transportation and taxis.

Although the government bans self-driving cars for safety issues and to protect jobs in some countries, these issues will not be there soon. Nonetheless, pilots need not be cautious for now–while there do exist self-flying software, travelers will need time to fly by a machine.

Receptionists

Hotels, universities, and companies that can afford the technology are already in the way of replacing receptionists with bots. Much of the traditional receptionist functions will be to move with automated telephone, touch screens, and scheduling systems. Especially in modern technology companies that do not have office-wide telephone systems or multinationals. The power of AI to perform regular tasks is at the base of these systems. The extra ability to recognize voices, people, and take instructions is further making it possible.

Accountants

Finance jobs can soon take AIs capable of measuring and analyzing data faManyrous research has also shown that when it comes to accounting tasks, robots are better than humans. As robot accountants do not carry that big risk, unlike automated cars. They are there and used by confidence nowadays. As already said, tasks that include calculation and data-keeping stand nowhere in the developed world.

Security guards

When it comes to protecting and securing business sites. Robo-guards are already replacing people. For example, Yelp’s security robot, which with its high-definition camera can inspect the entire building. Sophia Robot is creating another revolution. The robot also has a micro and infrared directional detector that can detect any unusual noise or movement. The awesome features that are being added to the digital personal assistants also make them capable of protecting your home.

Proofreaders

A simple search can bring out a lot of online proofreading applications. Although editing is a more complex task tone, interpretation, and others, the essence of proofreading is much simpler. It’s like you are learning to write English with good grammar in your childhood. An AI can do the same by learning the rules and practicing them. This means we can automate the identification of grammatical errors, sentence construction, and other errors via different apps.

Farmers

Although this profession can’t replace only using AI software systems, a little bit of help from hardware systems can do wonders in this field; and they are already doing. Robots are sturdier than humans. They are the best at replacing them at places like farms where one has to face tough conditions. And when that is in combination with AI systems that can detect objects and analyze which farm needs how much water using analytics. We find the best Robo-farmers ever. The first robot lettuce farm in the world was recently opened in Kyoto, Japan, and includes an all-robot farming team.

Compensation And Benefits Manager

With an impressive probability of replacement of more than 96 percent and a remarkable growth ratio of 7 percent. This does not mean that this job is safe from technology. The integrated profit and compensation management systems will save a lot of time and effort as business organizations grow their markets and prospects. Such automated systems are growing in popularity at the moment, and are being embraced by some huge business organizations to provide promised benefits and compensation to their workers.

Customer Service Representatives

Long gone are the days when humans would answer calls from disgruntled customers and unsatisfied service users and attempt to solve their rather menial problems.
 
Now, AI has taken over with its own little customized approach with relies heavily on preset answers/methodologies but offers responses to customers that they are somewhat satisfied with (or not).
 
With the inculcation of chatbots across a wide variety of websites and the usage of automated replies, businesses have reduced the need to hire customer representatives for consumer interaction and can now simply have AI take care of that.
 
While this may have been an approach at first due to the lack of human interaction. With time AI has restructured itself and learned from responses to curate a better interactive environment whereby humans are in fact left satisfied with the responses.

AI As Job Creator: A New Approach

In the words of Byron Reese, the CEO of tech company Gigaom, AI could be “the greatest job engine the world has ever seen”.
 
He believes that with the involvement of AI in the arena of technicians, developers, representatives, etc. there will actually be job growth rather than a complete takeover as some might expect.
 
Once AI is available in the market. There is no doubt that the market will now begin to diversify its needs and will therefore give rise to a different kind of job market; one that will not be fulfilled by just the presence of the AI and will therefore have to rely heavily on human input.
 
Moreover, as times have moved on and human behavior/circumstances changed. There are now even more job opportunities that require a certain “human element” it. Jobs that require creation, conceptualization, complex strategic planning, or just merely hand-eye coordination are roles that can not be fulfilled by computer-simulated objects.
 
Instead, the reliance will now in fact increase on human involvement in these particular jobs leading to a higher demand for their services.

Preparation Is key

Sure, there is no doing away with the fact that the AI influx was a long-time coming and that now it has indeed set a firm foot in the market but this doesn’t have to mean the end for human development and involvement.
 
If anything, this could potentially be the start of a new era where both AI and humans can work together to achieve goals/targets that might otherwise be not possible.
The best-case scenario moving forward is that humans begin to utilize their time and efforts and invest in skill development that could help them potentially compete with AI.
 
Whether it’s by investing in skills such as communication or maybe even mathematical skills or by inculcating a sense of critical thinking into their lives. Workers can prepare themselves for the upcoming future.
 
The introduction of any technological advancement almost always takes its time before reaching its full potential but with the current speed at which AI is advancing, there is no saying when they might reach that very potential.

Conclusion

Although AI can take on easier and more time-consuming tasks. It can not replace human emotions and behaviors that interact with consumers and audiences. Also, human intellect and creativity remain unmatched and are not likely to replicate soon. Besides, a company may always need a chief executive or managers with strong emotional intelligence or other skills that are towards teamwork. Seeing these facts, it seems right to say that humans will there for supervision only, in the future and it is best if we prepare ourselves and the coming generations for that.
