Jeremy Auger, the chief strategy officer for Tweney Media client D2L, wrote a piece that appeared in Entrepreneur this week:
With the advancement of artificial intelligence technologies, automation is still replacing humans, only it’s now happening the cognitive space as well as the physical one.
…According to University of Oxford researchers, 47 percent of workers may be at risk of losing their jobs to automation, in particular those in mid-skilled retail jobs, and office workers like cashiers and telemarketers. A recent McKinsey report predicted that a smaller percentage of jobs would be at risk of being completely replaced by machines, but pointed out that the majority of jobs would see some of their tasks replaced by automation.
In other words, we’re all going to feel the impact of AI in some way. And our skills aren’t keeping pace.
