In addition, with AI replacing jobs, more jobs will be created. AI and robots need to be managed. Someone will have to fix them when they are broken and correct them when they make mistakes. Someone will also have to create new AI algorithms and robots to do new jobs. There are countless other needs that will prompt the creation of new jobs. Predictions range and industries vary, but all agree: AI will create more jobs than it replaces, sometimes even double than those replaced. Forbes estimates that by 2022, 75 million jobs will be taken, but 133 million will be produced. That’s 58 million new jobs. Many companies, like Amazon, plan to educate their displaced employees into higher positions, making the exhausting job search process unnecessary. Humans are also extremely adaptable. This isn’t the first big societal change we’ve encountered, and it most certainly won’t be the last. Despite that, we’ve persevered for thousands of years. There’s still plenty to be done that only we are equipped to do.
