2.6 What Skills Will Machines Take over?
Another way to view the future of employment is not so much to look at whether jobs are created or disappear, but to consider what skills machines will take over and what skills humans have which are better than machines. This is the focus of this lesson, in which we look at the spread of machine learning and AI in people’s personal lives and in day-to-day work life. The video provides as an example the use of AI in Information Technology departments, which can now basically be run by machines. AI is better at some tasks, it is said, but people are central to creativity and innovation and at reasoning and framing questions. Retraining for new industries and skills is needed for those whose jobs are at risk.
