– The Mass Adoption Of AI Is Leading Us Straight Into Scenes From A Science Fiction Movie
According to a 2013 study by Oxford University, 47% or more jobs in America were at risk of being replaced by computers within the following 20 years, a time period of which we are now 1/4 of the way through and already witnessing AI putting people out of some jobs around the world.
While the Providence Journal predicts AI may consume 50% of all finance jobs in the US in the next decade, KTAR News in Phoenix, Arizona reports over 1/3 of all Phoenix-area jobs could be replaced by artificial intelligence in what they call something out of a science-fiction movie creeping closer to mass adoption than many people think.
Quoting a report written by a think tank called ‘New America’, they report that 650,000 people in that area are at risk of losing jobs in positions such as cashiers, retail sales people and food service workers as AI moves in and human beings move out. And while those numbers show predictions running between 1/3 and 1/2 of all US jobs will one day be replaced by AI, those stories don’t do justice to the havoc AI could unleash.
