From a post by Alex Knapp at forbes.com:
There’s no shortage of discussion about how artificial intelligence and improved automation will disrupt the job market, with many concerned that it will mean that they’re out of a job. But how realistic are these concerns?
In the latest episode of The Premise, the Forbes tech podcast, we talk to Joe Lobo, the Botmaster at artificial intelligence firm Inbenta. Lobo notes that advancing technologies like artificial intelligence creates job opportunities that never existed before. He also notes that a lot of people will be able to bring their existing skillsets to bear on new opportunities. Teachers, for example, have been able to take their training and become computational linguists – people whose job it is to help AI understand language.
“What technology is doing is that it’s developing and slightly adjusting the jobs they are having to do while incorporating artificial intelligence with in it,” he says. “We are being able to evolve the types of jobs we can do and increasing the scope of what we’re able to offer thanks to increased productivity.”
What other job possibilities will exist as artificial intelligence gets better? Listen to the episode to find out more.
