Artificial Intelligence is changing everything. AI is going to replace our jobs. So what are the jobs that AI is going to create or replace?


A report from PwC states that - AI will displace around 7 million and will be creating around 7.2 million new jobs.

According to MIT researchers – AI will replace tasks, not jobs.

In my opinion AI revolution is mainly going to effect non-technological jobs. So, the next generation—of employees should focus on creating career in new roles like AI researchers, Data scientist, Robotic Engineer.

  • $\begingroup$ This is purely speculation because no formal model is available about the future. To get the detailed outlook, the precondition is a simulation which predicts the job market similar to a computer game. Instead of saying what will happen in 20 years from now, the better idea is think in different scenarios which can take place or not. This would allow the user to play with the model and enter different parameters. $\endgroup$ – Manuel Rodriguez Jun 10 '19 at 10:57

As rate of automation is increasing day by day and companies are keen about AI automation.Surely AI is going to affect job market.According to Granter, Artificial Intelligence will create more jobs than it eliminates by 2020

I agree with Manuel Rodriguez, it will be too early too define what kind of jobs are going to created by AI.

But its undeniable fact that AI is going to play a key role in companies. Obviously companies required AI Engineers, AI Researchers, AI Experts.

Apart from these jobs Robotic Engineer, IOT Engineer, Machine Learning Specialists are also be on demand.


Possible new jobs which have to do with Artificial Intelligence are robot maintenance and neural network engineering https://ai.stackexchange.com/a/6619/11571

According to https://ai.stackexchange.com/a/12485/11571 the AI landscape is a knowledge intensive area which has prerequisites in computer science and mathematics. The probability is high, that new jobs are created on these fields.

In 2013 there was a paper published from PWC how he different jobs are effected by automation. https://ai.stackexchange.com/a/7438/11571 Workers in logistics are at risk to be replaced by machines because the amount of repetitive work is high.
