Myths of artificial intelligence: the machines will rise and take our jobs.
Humanity is well aware that the future (as well as the present) lies in artificial intelligence. However, people continue to fear that robots will push them out of the labor market. And even make a revolution to rule the world.
AI is long among us: helps clean up the house, counts insurance, sells tickets, answers questions and tests medications. At the same time, its presence in such important sectors as retail, logistics and even the military-industrial complex is growing. As you can see, AI during this time did not even think to defeat us. Probably because it is taught something completely different.
Of course, most of the stereotypes about artificial intelligence came to us from fiction films. Reality is markedly different from fiction.
Will artificial intelligence take over the world?
There are no bad technologies. Each of them can be applied in a different direction, including harm. At one time, the popular cartoon was depicting the rebellious components of the Internet of things (IoT). The entrance lock, endowed with AI, threatened not to release the owner, and the refrigerator promised never to open, if it does not get a big sum of money. Of course, the smart machines were behind hackers: technology, unlike people, does not need dollars. In this joke there is some truth: the network can be hacked and the main task of a person is to ensure cybersecurity. It is not the rise of machines that should be feared, but the criminal actions of the people who hacked the network.
AI and the labour market
Another stereotype that machines will send people to the labour market is collapsing. Perhaps AI will take a job as a cleaner, logistics specialist and the operator of the contact center. But instead it will make necessary a number of vacancies, among which are masters of computer security. And, by the way, the blockchain specialists: it is expected that the data array will be in an environment that is practically not subject to hacking.
The media pump: automation of production in the UK will reduce 4 million jobs. In the US, 47% of specialties are already at risk. Journalists also have something to worry about, because AI knows how to write news. But there is no sense in dramatizing: artificial intelligence creates a lot of career opportunities. In addition to specialists in cybersecurity leading firms now need people involved in machine learning. Even a simple chat-bot will shut up, if it is not properly programmed.
The share of creative professions will grow: any creative is beyond the scope of machines. It was therefore necessary to dispel prejudice and to welcome new technologies that freed up routine and unleashed potential for development.
