A new World Economic Forum study has concluded that robots and artificial intelligence will handle about 52% of current work tasks by the year 2025. That’s almost twice as many as they already currently handle.
Although AI is expected to generate about 58 million jobs, it will also decimate the middle class, according to the Internet of Business. The WEF report, The Future of Jobs 2018, predicts that 75 million jobs will be displaced by AI, robotics, and automation, but suggests that 133 million new jobs may be created as organizations attempt to shift the balance between human workers and machines: a net gain of 58 million jobs. But they also predict that this shift will be a bloodbath for the already hard-hit middle class.
