Artificial Intelligence is always at the centre of the debates when it comes to the labour market. Some of them, like Martin Ford, author of Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future, predict a job destructive AI. Others, on the other hand, believe that Artificial Intelligence will facilitate the work, freeing oneself for example from certain repetitive tasks and focusing only on those that deserve the hardened eye of a human being. Finally, there are also scientists who believe in creating new jobs through Artificial Intelligence. Indeed, the truth is probably at the crossroads of these three perceptions. And for this reason, the has created a small program to find out what work will actually be affected by the AI in 2035 when Oxford University estimates that 47% of the human labour force will be replaced by then! All you have to do is enter your job title to find out its prospects. The project, called Rise of the Robots, predicts the likelihood that your position will be occupied by robots within 17 years. It can even estimate the number of robots that your employer will be able to buy for your annual salary, and the tasks of your work for which they will be mainly used (advice, handling, regulations...). For example, a cashier has a 97% chance of being replaced by an Artificial Intelligence in 2035 (compared to 9.8% for a police officer) and the employer will be able to buy 588 robots for the equivalent of one cashier's annual salary. By 2035, 1.148.125 cashiers are expected to lose their jobs. Now it's up to you to decide whether your job will still exist in 20 years or whether a robot and artificial intelligence will succeed you without you having your say!
