What can I do if my jobs will be taken over by robots?

Robots are not the end of human existence. In fact, there are millions of robots in operation today that perform the most repetitive and precise tasks previously performed by humans.

Artificial intelligence has certainly given robots the power of deductive reasoning (for some painstaking tasks like object detection), but like any other technology, much of that learning happens through humans through training. .

So if we make the analogy to the human hierarchy we have today, where humans move up the work chain and eventually end up as managers training the next generation of the workforce,

Robots are not the end of human existence. In fact, there are millions of robots in operation today that perform the most repetitive and precise tasks previously performed by humans.

Artificial intelligence has certainly given robots the power of deductive reasoning (for some painstaking tasks like object detection), but like any other technology, much of that learning happens through humans through training. .

So if we make the analogy to the human hierarchy that we have today, where humans move up the work chain and eventually end up as managers training the next generation of the workforce, we can imagine that as robots are capable of Taking over more mundane tasks, humans will be able to move up the chain and just be there to train the robots.

Until we reach singularity (where robots can perform better than humans), at which point they can perform on all levels better than humans and at that point human innovation has not been able to keep up with the abilities of robots. , humans will still have something new to learn.

So what should you learn? Focus on tasks that are inductive in nature and require great creativity and knowledge of various fields. While robots may have better memory, so far it has not been shown that robots (or AI) can synthesize information as fast as humans, they cannot even emulate many of the inductive reasoning skills we possess.

Hope this helps!

All the jobs that robots can do will be done by robots.

When robots take on most jobs, governments can provide basic income to humans just for their existence. Beyond that, you have to win by other means.

You can start creating a new variety of robots or work for a company that creates them or train robots (deep learning).

You can switch to other jobs (arts, jobs with more creativity, jobs that require multi-domain integrations) that have not yet been taken by robots and are continuing in them.

Give the robot a plastic human face and artificial intelligence speech, then use politics, social media, good marketing to give the robot human rights and privileges. Marry the robot and get money from that robot

  • looking for a new job?
  • Wait, in about 10 years there will come a new kind of economy, an "unlimited economy" that will replace capitalism, allow people to have a decent wage without inflation.

If you really believe that robots will take over your job, I would recommend that you start training in a new skill set.

May I suggest a career in robot maintenance and repair?

Everybody? Not in the short term ... probably not in my life or my granddaughter's ...

But eventually maybe like this ...

Automation is freeing us from more and more tasks. Boring and repetitive physical tasks at first, and as they get smarter, more and more mental tasks.

This means that fewer and fewer people will have to work like slaves in a job they hate just to earn enough money to house, clothe and feed themselves and their families and perhaps have enough disposable income to do what they really enjoy doing on the weekends. of week. and vacations.

YOU ARE RELEASED! (This is a good thing!)

Q: What will we do for money? A: Universal basic income - Wikipedia

There is a common fallacy that one day your boss will walk into your office with a robot and a pink note. That is unlikely to happen.

Think of it this way: What if your boss provided you with an unskilled entry-level assistant that you could use however you see fit? What tasks would you delegate to them? Once those tasks were taken over, what would you do instead of those tasks? Do you work less? Less hours? Or would you find other more challenging tasks to fill your hours? Or could you expand your areas of responsibility?

Well, what if the assistant improves on the tasks you assigned him and asks for more work? What tasks would you download to them then? And what would you do differently then?

Think about how this could increase your productivity. (Although you would waste a bit of time training and then supervising your assistant (s), you would earn more if you didn't have to do your homework.)

That's what automation is all about ... and why we do it. It's not about cutting jobs or saving money… those are just secondary benefits of making people more productive. And it has been happening since the invention of the wheel.

Keep in mind that as you become more productive, the day may come when all you do is supervise your assistants ... They have displaced you (and perhaps some of your co-workers) from your original job ( assuming all his tasks).

And maybe one day you will find that they don't even need supervision. What will you do next? Retire? You could.

And then there is this: "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it." - Albert Einstein

I believe that once AI has surpassed us in intelligence, it will be able to solve problems beyond our ability with our intelligence.

It is very difficult to predict. This type of transition could have massive and unpredictable effects on every society in the world. It could also do very different things in different countries. I doubt that people will react to automation in Norway the same way they will in the United States. Here are some cases that I think are likely.

In the worst case: normal people will not be able to make money, but they will still need it. The wealthy few who invested in robots (or whose ancestors invested in them) will own about 100% of society's resources. The rest will die or live on handouts. The world will

It is very difficult to predict. This type of transition could have massive and unpredictable effects on every society in the world. It could also do very different things in different countries. I doubt that people will react to automation in Norway the same way they will in the United States. Here are some cases that I think are likely.

In the worst case: normal people will not be able to make money, but they will still need it. The wealthy few who invested in robots (or whose ancestors invested in them) will own about 100% of society's resources. The rest will die or live on handouts. The world will become aristocracy as the rich do not need the poor and they gain full control of the government. Rebellions can occur. If they happen late in the process, they will likely be crushed, easily crushed military robots, and advanced artificial intelligence.

Least bad case: once again, the rich will take control of most of society's resources. However, to promote stability, they will continue to hire people to do jobs that do not contribute anything to the economy. People will continue to work for no real reason to "justify" their existence. Most people will have a salary level similar to what they have today, with the rich getting richer.

Mid Case - Automation will be severely limited by regulation or it will just turn out to be much more difficult than we think. Limited automation will cause unemployment, but it will be manageable. This may be sustainable in the short term, but it is more likely to be a temporary state.

Good case: automation creates a lot of wealth, but it also creates unemployment. Governments notice. They raise taxes and use the increased revenue from automation to produce an increasingly robust safety net. At first, this involves helping the newly unemployed survive and trying to re-educate them for more advanced jobs. As advanced jobs start to disappear, this will eventually go down to just being paid for by the government enough to live on. In the end, robot owners will remain very wealthy. The masses will be able to live a pleasant life and will not have to work. It is unclear how well they will adjust to this massive amount of free time.

Wildcard case: AI gets very smart and is inherently uncontrollable. The AI ​​themselves end up controlling all the wealth in the world. They could be much more or less benevolent than any human, it is impossible to say. This could result in utopia or extinction.

Many people have considered which jobs would be least likely to be automated by robots.

Fortune (magazine) suggests that jobs for which there is abundant cheap labor will be safe from automation (these are the jobs least likely to go to robots). Line cooks, cleaners, farm workers, garment workers, and other workers with simple but not predictable jobs will be safe from automation for financial reasons. One of the possible consequences of raising the minimum wage would be the new economic viability of automating such jobs.

Many people have considered which jobs would be least likely to be automated by robots.

Fortune (magazine) suggests that jobs for which there is abundant cheap labor will be safe from automation (these are the jobs least likely to go to robots). Line cooks, cleaners, farm workers, garment workers, and other workers with simple but not predictable jobs will be safe from automation for financial reasons. One of the possible consequences of raising the minimum wage would be the new economic viability of automating such jobs.

Any task facing the Uncanny Valley will be difficult to replace. People looking to interact with a human will settle for nothing less. Coach, manager, psychologist, counselor, nurse, and other interactions with a certain level of intimacy will be difficult to replace. Overcoming this barrier has become a major focus for Japan, where the demographic reversal caused by low birth rates and an aversion to interacting with foreigners has led to a concerted effort to build empathetic robots for caring for people. greater. Japan is running out of people to care for the elderly, so it is making robots instead. I suspect that most societies will have a higher level of resistance to that.

Tasks that require personal contact will also be difficult to automate. A robot dental hygienist, cosmetologist or hairdresser will not be welcomed by many. The same for a surgeon, dentist, or physical therapist. I don't really like it when a post-Singularity bag of screws gets too close to me with a sharp object. I've seen that movie.

It will be difficult to replace artists of all kinds, be they artists, sculptors, painters, chefs, musicians or writers. Although some artificial intelligence robots have devoted themselves to the creation of technical articles and books, it is unclear how the distillation of human experience into encapsulated work will be easily replicated in the near future. Anyone who tells me, "But, Deep Sleep !!" I will refer to the nearest local art gallery for rehabilitation. Or force them to listen to only Compressorhead performances for the rest of their lives.

If all else fails, the last human job will be a Blade Runner, although some moviegoers suggest that it has already been automated.

We are beginning to see the great revolution in the robotics industry and the next decades we will see an increase in robotics applications that will enter our lives and will probably replace humans.

1. Driverless cars: replacing human drivers and taxis

With Google's self-driving cars already tested over a million miles in the US and many auto companies (Nissan, BMW, Audi, GM, Toyota) following the lead, we can look to the next 5 to 10 years taxis and autonomous cars on the streets. . Most taxis will be replaced by these autonomous vehicles.

2.) Surgical robots: help from the doctor

Surgical robots are something that will be common in the coming years and some world-class hospitals have already started using robotic arms for precision surgeries.

Johnson & Johnson's startup 'Verb Surgical' gears up to produce surgical robots

3.) Care robotics - Health care for the elderly

Many impressive robots are being built for the aging population in Japan and China and it is expected to be a 20 billion dollar industry. They will stand in for the nurses and medical care or help you in your grueling jobs.

4.) Entertainment Industry - The Robot Rockstar

We will see robots take over creative music and dance in the future and entertain us with a perfect symphony and fluid dance steps.


Example: The Wakamaru humanoid robots, produced by Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industry, named Momoko (R) and Takeo (L) in the performance, participate in a drama for the world's first experimental robot-human theater, written and directed by the Japanese playwright Oriza Hirata. , at the Osaka University of Japan in Osaka,

5.) Military - Killer Robots

Boston Dynamics, a Google-owned research company, is already building killer robots to aid soldiers in combat and capable of transporting hundreds of pounds of military equipment and weapons on the battlefield. Advanced aircraft are already a kind of robots to me, but then there are these amazing robots.

6.) Search and rescue: the great helpers

Robots are now being deployed on battlefields and are increasingly used by military personnel around the world to deal with dangerous explosives. These are going to save many lives in the future.

Other areas will be search and rescue in dangerous environments (such as the Fukushima nuclear plant) where robots can enter the facility and rescue humans. The following robot is being built by researchers in Japan to handle such situations.

7.) Exoskeletons: become a superman

Exoskeletons are special suits that facilitate and give extra strength to the user to lift heavy objects that are humanly impossible. These will be our future workers and soldiers who will do extraordinary jobs. Imagine humans wearing these suits lifting a whole log of wooden or steel poles.

8.) Space explorers

The Mars lander is already exploring the unknown terrains on the planet Mars and in the near future we hope to see more robots exploring the unknowns of our vast universe using robots.

9.) Security

Robots are being developed to recognize intruders and thieves and will help law enforcement agencies tackle crime in the future.

Bottom: A prototype "bino3" security robot during a demonstration at a security fair in Tokyo on March 3, 2009. The bino3 has four "eyes," which are two wide-angle stereo camera lenses and two wide angle lenses. stereo telephoto camera that can easily follow a subject or intruder

10.) Service robots: your job killer

Love it or hate it, robots will take over a lot of your jobs. Already the main suppliers and companies like Amazon are implementing robots to handle loads and they are more efficient than humans.

Robots working on building your next car.

11.) Robot novel writer.
Japanese AI writes a novel and almost wins a literary award

There are very few jobs that have been 100% removed, even with normal machines, because some people just never really adapt. The job of a file clerk, for example, no longer exists in the original definition of someone who organized and accessed reams of paper. This does not mean that those jobs do not exist. The banking industry's reliance on paper records is legendary.

Similarly, farm work has been 99% replaced by machines, but that's only in the US, where we can afford those machines. The United States has one farm worker for every 20 hectares of farmland, while places like Singapore have three

Similarly, farm work has been 99% replaced by machines, but that's only in the US, where we can afford those machines. The United States has one farm worker for every 20 hectares of farmland, while places like Singapore have three workers per hectare. The jobs are very different, but they are still called "farmers", and we still need migrant workers to gather our most delicate crops.

If you want jobs that have been completely replaced, you have to look back to the computer revolution in the 80's. There used to be a job description called a "calculator." He was a person who added numbers all day, usually for accounting purposes. We have also replaced most of the executive assistants. Most people don't even know what a "shorthand group" was, and the job of a "typographer" is nothing like what it was 20 years ago.

If you want to talk about standard robotics, then you want to look into the world of manufacturing.

Auto assembly workers still exist because unions have imposed an "all or nothing" policy on automakers. If they build automated factories, their current workers will go on strike. As far as I know, this is the current extreme for replacement by mechanical devices.

The truth is, there are no jobs that robots can't do if robots advanced to a point of no return.

One day people don't need to work. Just relax and have fun doing whatever they want. It will take time to realize this, because it will take another 100 to 200 years to perfect robots.

This means that there are current conflicts between humans and robots in job competition.

Currently, the risks of job loss are in loan officers, as the trend is AI in credit loans. The car salesman will be gone as online car sales are the trend. Auto insurance agents could also be affected as AI will replace many agents.

Currently, the risks of job loss are in loan officers, as the trend is AI in credit loans. The car salesman will be gone as online car sales are the trend. Auto insurance agents could also be affected as AI will replace many agents.

Fast food cooks can be replaced by robotic assembly setups. Even the fast food cashier could have disappeared except for the manager.

Amazon's shipping systems will likely be replaced more by robots to eliminate many jobs at online shipping companies. Car manufacturing will replace many well-paying jobs, but many still need to stay in operation, so there will still be many jobs for the auto industry.

The jobs that could have a chance of success are the field of medicine. Robots can help the healthcare sector, but they won't eliminate these jobs. People still need a nurse or doctor to talk to.

Teachers will survive as children still want real interaction with a human teacher. I am working on a learning system to help the teacher teach more easily with less stress and the students have less frustration in learning. Therefore, teachers will have happier days ahead when the Effortless Learning System is available worldwide for the next decade. We are still working on it. I like the feeling of teachers and students eager to get up early to get to school in the future. I hope no effort learning system does that trick. People wanted to go to school to learn. I want to facilitate learning, how to play. Teaching materials are the key, But it is not easy to create all these new teaching lessons, but one thing is clear: teaching materials can help reduce educational costs and do not require electronic devices or Internet services. This is really good for poor people everywhere to have an excellent education. To other jobs.

Chefs could be replaced by perfect kitchen robots in the next decade. But some chefs will survive. Many chefs will find new ways to make new muffins. Instead of cooking daily, they will be hired to come up with new ideas for cooking new dishes and meals.

Oil changers will disappear once electric vehicles are everywhere. Mechanics will still be needed to repair electric vehicles, but they may need to retrain in electronic technology at community colleges.

Police jobs will survive. Robots will not be able to replace the police, but only in movies can robots replace them. Farm jobs like pickers could be replaced by better robotic machines. Illegal immigrants will not have these jobs in the future.

The bottom line is that many jobs will disappear, but many new ones will be replaced.

Good luck thinking about your next career goals. Choose wisely because it could be stressful after losing your jobs in the future.
