We have already seen the drastic change in technology and robust ways of doing a task in the last 20 years. Every other Sci-fi movie frames the collapse of the human workforce, replaced by robotics and Artificial Intelligence.
From self-driving cars to the genesis of ‘much-efficient’ droids, we are already witnessing the dependency on the next-gen technology, trying to replace the human workforce so fast. But what if many jobs MAY DISAPPEAR in near future? Well, there’s a possibility and it has already begun happening!
We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten ~ Bill Gates
Will Jobs Disappear in Future Due to AI?
Let’s have a short fact-check to know the current scenario of advancements and achievements humans succeeded in so far. In 2017, a McKinsey report highlighted the following shocking statistics:
- Around 50% of the work activities are already technically automatable by adapting current advanced technologies.
- More than 30% of human activities are technically automatable in around 6 in 10 jobs. Astounding?
5 Jobs Which Will Disappear By 2030
Are you a job person and always the fear another human that may take your seat? Well, your enemy may be a bot, or an automation software and not a Homosapien. Here are those 6 jobs which may disappear by 2030. Just read below to mark yourself save, we mean may be-
1. The Truck Driver
Will be replaced by: Self Driving Trucks
Artificial Intelligence will soon be advanced enough to replace truck drivers. One of the main issues to solve are ethical problems like the trolley dilemma (would you kill 5 people to save one or save 5 to kill one in a situation that requires this decision).
Basically, most monotonous jobs will be gone within a couple of decades.
Disruption is natural and can’t be avoided.
- Warehouse workers
Will be replaced by: Automated Robots
There already are huge warehouses in China which don’t require average employees anymore. The robots transport the goods from A to B, drive to their charging station whenever they run out of battery and a replacement until jump in to fill the hole fully automated.
Human labor is Warehouse be gone very soon.
- Cab Drivers
Will be replaced by: Automated Cars
Cab drivers already have to fight with Uber and Taxify but long term they will be hit with the same problem as the truck drivers’ self-driving cars. Once this innovation is ready, millions of jobs will be affected.
Companies like TESLA and Hyundai are already in the race, soon Apple will be launching its first self Driving car in the market and then works will be changed forever.
Taxi drivers will have to find another profession
- Travel Agents
Will be replaced by: Website Bookings
Let’s be honest, when was the last time you visited a local travel agency to book your trip? This business is already DEAD! The only people who still book their vacation at a local travel agency are your grandparents. It’s the previous generation.
Travel agencies will be gone very soon.
Will be replaced by: Autopilot Technology
In early 2016, the New York Post had already been reporting that pilots got to find their jobs themselves on the chopping block, credit goes to competition from robots. Autopilot features have long supported pilots in the air—in fact, pilots generally assume control of their airplanes only during takeoff and landing. But who thought that would soon take over the whole task?
However, those two tasks are being taught to their mechanical competitors, and it’s quite possible that both humans and cargo will soon go pilotless!
Pilots will be steadily replaced by Autopilots
