Artificial Intelligence Effect : Fifteen Jobs that will Disappear in the next 20 years .


Artificial Intelligence Effect : Fifteen Jobs that will Disappear in the next 20 years .


Today I know that for some the future is incredibly exciting filled with new technologies and new opportunities,   but for some others the future doesn't look as bright and we want to Artificial Intelligence some concerns with you guys.



Effects of AI
Effects of AI

A study done at Oxford University found out that 45% of all current jobs will disappear in the next 10 years with some of them being completely automated or at least upgraded to a point where a fraction of the workforce is needed. So this will greatly impact the way you plan for your future as the environment is changing in this blog we'll go through just some of the jobs that will radically change in the upcoming decade and the years that follow if you're currently working in either of these industries it might be a smart call to look for alternatives, with that Effect of Artificial Intelligence here are 15 jobs that will probably disappear or be automated in the next 10 to 20 years.

Number One Drivers       

Driver Less Truck with AI
Driver Less Truck with AI

let me put it this way if your job consists of driving any type of machinery automobile or vehicle you're going to be out of a job soon. taxi drivers, bus drivers, truck drivers, uber drivers and delivery drivers are all on the verge of complete automation. In the US alone there are fifteen point five million trucks and two million tractor with Artificial Intelligence on the road. With the trucking industry employing 14 million people out of which 10 million are drivers. These are the people who are going to be pushed out first because a self-driving truck doesn't need to stop for rest is attentive to the road 24/7 and we already have the technology.

Believe it or not this is already backed by the government in Germany and they're betting hard on self-driving trucks. You know that the next generation of Tesla cars will be 100% autonomous.  Elon Musk himself agrees that it will take us one to two years to get the tech right and then three more to get the government to approve it all major car manufacturers are headed towards electric and self-driving cars and those who won't will be left behind in the near future riding in a car will be like getting in an elevator you just press a button and it takes you to wherever you want to go now what's going to happen to the estimated 20 million to have their livelihoods based on being active drivers these people will need to reinvent themselves multiple times in a row this might be easy.

if you're currently 20 to 30 years old but what will a 50 plus year old taxi driver be able to readapt - not sure what these people will be able to do to switch from taxi driving to 3d modeling for virtual worlds.

Number Two Farmers Farming

When it came to employment numbers back in the day this has changed dramatically though you might still see farming as human labor intensive in the  underdeveloped parts of the world but on a macro level this has already been automated with very few specially Artificial Intelligence trained individuals that operate heavy machinery from the comforts of the office via wireless connections back in the day you needed to physically measure your plot of land needed human labor to weed it out and another set of people to harvest and transport the end product to where it's needed now we measure things with drones or satellite imagery the soil is already treated against Artificial Intelligence weeds or the seeds are weed resistant to begin with harvesting and planting can be done.

In a small fraction of the time it used to thanks to specialized hardware and the trucks carrying out will be self-driving really soon bearing the title of farmer in the near future will be as highly ranked as banker or hedge fund manager since they'll only be a handful of people having the oligopoly when it comes to what you eat if this sounds ridiculous to you that only a few people will be in charge of our food you're already too late to the table.

Today only 10 companies control almost every large food and beverage brand in the world anything you eat probably comes from one of them these companies Nestle Pepsico coca-cola Unilever – none  General Mills Kellogg's Mars Associated British Foods and Mondelez welcome to the future.

Number Three Printers and Publishers

Printers and Publishers with AI

The newspaper is dead traditional media is suffering as the Internet is eating up everything you no longer need to get your news from the papers. You get them via Twitter or live streams as they are happening all traditional magazines are fighting for their lives not to survive one versus  the other but to survive as a whole if you've watched a video on Forbes magazine you know that despite having such a strong brand they're on the verge of collapse. Despite their massive push into digital media information is free and there are very few publishers where the trust in the brand is enough to keep the motors going. A great example is the New York Times one of the only publications who have successfully implemented a pay wall for readers to consume their written content. Can you imagine if we would implement a pay wall on ealuxe.com . Where you guys had to pay $1 to find out what the most expensive car in the world is. We'd be out of business quicker than you can say luxury with a democratization of new sources big brands are struggling to find their place in this online. First environment unless you're in your 50s or more you're unlikely to get your news from TV networks .

Number Four Cashier

Cashier Less Shop with AI

America alone has 8 million people working as cashiers and in-store sales . People are  going to be out of a job sooner than  they think I know you've seen the self checkout stations and they still have someone supervising them and they're bugging now. We're not far from a total takeover of the machines in this space if you've been following what the biggest commerce giants are doing it's easy to connect the dots. Amazon acquired Whole Foods for close to fourteen billion dollars.  Amazon is running pilot tests with what they call Amazon go a corner store with zero humans involved. Where you just walk in get what you need and walk out with everything you bought being  automatically deducted from your credit card. Sensors are on the rise and the tech needs to only be a little better than the human counterpart for the switch to be made. The  Artificial Intelligence cashiers can go 24/7 without bringing the drama of their personal lives into the workplace.


Number Five Travel Agents

when's the last time you went to a travel agency to book a flight the likes of Skyscanner took over the flight ticket industry booking.com . In the hotel booking industry, Artificial Intelligence  is  disrupting the hotel business as a whole there's no need for a third person to book the flight or hotel room for us.  We can do it ourselves who are better yet you can tell Siri to book it for you.

Number Six Manufacturing Workers

When the Industrial Revolution hit all the people working the fields moved to work in factories handcrafting the machines that would make our lives easier . In the process and with the advancement in technology.  People were put in charge of building machines that build other machines that would eliminate . The need for humans a fun thing to do is to compare the way cars were built less than a hundred years ago in the factories of looks wagon and how they're built today back then multiple humans were working in tandem to put together. The end product well today you're watching simple software at work . We heard this great quote awhile back that's stuck with us and it goes like this the factory of the future will only have one human and one dog.  The human will be there to feed the dog and the dog will be there to keep the human  from touching the machines.

Number Seven Dispatchers

I know you're probably thinking of the days when someone had to manually connect you to a different line in order to talk to someone but an astonishingly high number of people are still working as dispatchers. Today the role of the dispatcher is to coordinate the field operators so things run smoothly for everybody ,it doesn't matter if you're a firefighter dispatcher working with planes the police or ambulances . We already have technology that is massively outperforming you at your job and we're now figuring out just the final touches. On what is the best way to deploy that technology remember only five years ago when you had to call someone and ask for a cab. How do you ask for an Uber or a Ola today. One algorithm making their way into your particular niche of dispatching and your job is over.

Number Eight Writing Tables and Bartending

Not all of them will be gone but the bulk surely have one foot out the door already of course. There's a need for social interaction but that's not always the case sometimes you just want to sit down have the food arrive at your table as soon as possible. Enjoy a particular mix of alcoholic beverages and then leave all of which can be successfully replaced by a carefully documented algorithm and an iPad. More and more restaurants are jumping in on this trend all around the world we've even mentioned. Some of them about cool restaurants around the world that you should try out . A year ago since then the likes of itzá have taken over and they're here to stay.

Number Nine Bank Tellers

I'm sad to say this as the lady at our bank has always been so nice to me but we're not going to the bank for social interaction. To be honest we don't go to the bank anymore or very rarely when a visit is really needed. Otherwise we check out our balance on our Smartphone. Even the people on our payroll get their money delivered to their accounts automatically without the need for us to manually and physically fill in a form with their Artificial Intelligence.  If you want to grab cash you go to an ATM, you can open a bank account to most banks in the world online. If you're looking for specialized services you might need to meet in person and even then you might get the job done with a video call.

Number 10 Military Pilots and Soldiers

Military Pilots and Soldiers with AI

The military is the most sensible industry to innovation. It is the first one to embrace, it and deploy it if back in the day wars were decided based on who had the largest number of troops. Today it's a technology play, you no longer see people holding bayonets and riding horses into battle because  that would be inefficient drones can hit a target more accurately than any human could without endangering the life of the pilot . Who's sitting comfortably in a chair Artificial Intelligence on the other side of the world there is still a need for human soldiers but not as we know them these are the special ops.  The best of the best who are deployed only when there's no other technology at play.

Number 11 Fast Food Workers

Remember what people were asking for $15 an hour to work at McDonald's that's when automation kicks in all the people protesting the low wages for unskilled jobs will be the first ones to be hit such an increase in pay does happen. Fast food jobs are probably the easiest to automate out of the list and to be honest. It would have happened anyway but companies didn't do it right away because they didn't have any incentive to mess with something that's working right , but now with all the protests the government might actually give in and that's when the wave of automation takes over. What's going to happen with the rise in minimum wage which we strongly recommend you check out.

Number Twelve Telemarketer

Have you noticed that there are already fewer and fewer telemarketers their entire industry has been taken over by targeted ads. All around the internet and on all of your devices specially constructed based on the information.  The tech giant's have gathered from your use on their platforms Face book is not a charity. It uses all the data from the things you like click on share or engage with to create a custom profile for every single one of its users batch them and sell them to other companies. We ourselves use that type of data to get videos in front of people that we believe will find them valuable the irony is even.  Every video you're watching , there was probably an ad promoting.  Something you more or less are interested in ads are getting smarter as they learn more and more from you and that's why telemarketers are obsolete.

Number Thirteen Accountants and Tax

Prepares if it's one thing we've learned so far from this list, it's that boring and repetitive jobs will be taken over by algorithms.  What's the role of an accountant to go through your raw data and organize it that's like the favorite thing to do. For algorithms that's where they shine baby the average accountant in the U.S  earns around $60,000 per year and there are 1.3 million registered accountants and auditors. If it would cost fifteen billion dollars to create a highly sophisticated Artificial Intelligence that would get the job done perfectly. The piece of software would pay for itself in under two years that's why Artificial Intelligence, engineers are going after accountants lawyers and medical professionals.

 Number Fourteen Stock Traders

The days of Jordan Belfort and Gordon Gekko a study done by Bloomberg and in late 2015 discovered that only 10% of the stocks traded on a Artificial Intelligence daily basis worldwide are traded by actual humans and investors the rest are BOTS. Wherever there's money someone will try to automate it and get an edge Artificial Intelligence against their competitors.  The stock market is one of those places and the people behind the biggest funds in the world have deep enough pockets to capitalize on it want to be freaked out. If you want to buy a particular stock you go to your favorite trading platform or secured portfolio management dashboard ,you fill in the info with how much you  want to buy at Artificial Intelligence trading price and hit buy in the time it takes for the  signal to reach the servers and approve the order.  The bots have already realized you're going to purchase that stock they buy it for themselves, trade it between themselves and then sell it to you at a noticeably bigger price.  welcome to the world of micro trading, where bots always win you're not going to beat the market.

Number 15 Construction   

Construction with AI

Workers  back here on earth where people actually use their hands and backs to make things happen. The story looks a lot like what we've been saying.  Although the numbers are not clear there are at least 200 million people working in construction around the world and with developing countries wanting to expand. You'd expect a number to be on the rise, well it isn't and that's because technology is getting more and more efficient and affordable developers.  Need more machines and a slightly more specialized workforce to use set machines to build as technology progresses , we can see that construction workers will follow the same path, as those who used to work in the farming industry in the past unless you're the owner of the enterprise or one of those specialized employees who are further down the line of automation.  

Conclusion

The future doesn't seem like a welcoming place. We know most of you are young but making a bet on these industries in the traditional sense might not be the big payoff. You're expecting most of you have family that are likely to be impacted by these changes.  So make sure you bring up automation next time you're hanging out  with your loved ones. Since you're still here we want to reward you with an extra industry that is seeing massive disruption right now and not many people are talking about.  It number movie stars you'd expect people from the creative end of the spectrum to be safe from automation, but you'd be wrong human actors are really  expensive and as most humans their lives have ups and downs when you're investing a couple hundred million dollars in a productions or even more you wouldn't want that project to be influenced by a particular individual more and more blockbusters are animations because those characters do not age do not complain and can be easily monetized what about big movies let's take any Iron Man movie Robert Downey jr. is less on-screen than his CGI counterpart soon enough actors will sell a 3d rendering of their persona to big tech companies and there'll be no  need for them to show up on set they will just generate them in the scene mind-blowing right just to see how many of you stuck around.
