The concept of artificial intelligence has been shouting for many years. Although the advanced robots in science fiction movies have not yet appeared, we have to admit: the surrounding equipment has become more and more intelligent. Machine learning, decision-making algorithms, big data analysis…These technologies are quietly affecting human daily life: after opening a shopping website, consumers will be very pleased to see what they want to buy; online car-hailing will automatically arrange the most.
The best route, at the same time, there is a 70% probability of knowing where the passengers are going; the English translation robot can already translate Biden’s speech into Chinese, Japanese, Arabic and Tohoku dialect, and the familiar Siri has been thoroughly understood.
For a long time, ordinary people think that artificial intelligence is just a gimmick, and no matter how advanced technology is, it cannot be comparable to the human brain. However, with the development of new technology and human exploration of the working principle of the brain, more and more people have already Began to recognize the great potential of artificial intelligence.
In fact, a human brain is a machine with “tens of billions of components.” As long as the amount of artificial intelligence data is large enough and the response is fast enough, there is a chance to simulate the human brain.
In addition, with the rapid development of 5G construction, sensors, big data and other fields, AI has already taken shape, and it is “eyes on” the jobs of migrant workers.
Artificial Intelligence is A Job Killer Or Job Creator
In recent years, there is a saying that is very popular: Kill you, it has nothing to do with you. Just like when the iPhone was invented, it wanted to compete with Nokia and Motorola, but it was unbelievable that the camera, MP3, and game console industries were also hit hard enough, and almost suffered a disaster.
Even Microsoft and the PC field were greatly affected. After the rise of the mobile Internet, food delivery, express delivery, and online car-hailing industries have risen rapidly, and the instant noodle industry has suffered heavy losses.
Scan code payment has brought China into the “quasi-cashless” era, directly dimming the prospects of the “thief industry”. Nowadays, artificial intelligence is in the ascendant, and the destructive power and professional subversive ability it brings is very obvious… We can now just scan with our eyes and find a lot of jobs that may disappear.
The first is the service staff in restaurants, supermarkets, convenience stores, and entertainment venues. These jobs really have no technical content at all, and they can be quickly replaced without too advanced artificial intelligence. Last year, Alibaba’s unmanned supermarkets in Hangzhou attracted a lot of attention, and there are also some unmanned supermarkets in Shanghai. Experts say that unmanned supermarkets will become the next outlet for capital pursuit.
In addition, we must be prepared for “long-term epidemic prevention”. In future regulations, strict requirements will be imposed on the density of people in public places. It can be said that the epidemic is very likely to accelerate the promotion of “AI service robots”.
In the foreseeable future, consumers will see more and more beautiful robots using Siri’s voice to greet customers, and at the same time, they will deliver a bowl of steaming “Lanzhou Ramen”; secondly, taxi drivers will gradually be lost. Replaced by people driving cars. If subdivided by work types, the author believes that bus drivers will lose their jobs due to “artificial intelligence” at the earliest.
After all, the route of the bus is relatively fixed, and the road conditions to be judged are relatively simple. Driving, there is still a long way to go. Compared with taxi drivers, the job that needs to be replaced by artificial intelligence more urgently should be the “driving school coach.” This mechanically monotonous and swearing job should have long since disappeared from the earth.
Finally, assembly line workers, reporters, editors, typists, data collectors, and even mature surgeons are likely to be replaced by artificial intelligence. All in all, some monotonous and repetitive tasks will not be spared. After all, in the single-dimensional thinking space, human beings are far behind machines and artificial intelligence. Moreover, AI will not get sick, let alone discuss whether to reply to work information after work. As for complaints, selfishness, greed, and social security will not appear in artificial intelligence.
The society is people-oriented, and workers need not panic too much
In fact, every technological revolution will affect the actual job structure. The original intention of artificial intelligence is to improve production efficiency, quality of life, save costs for enterprises, and at the same time free natural humans from heavy labour.
But the problem is that human beings need to work, and the “necessity” is sometimes better than paying money directly, especially the current workers, including waiters, assembly line workers, drivers, etc., whose employment is very narrow. As a result, more and more experts began to worry: where are these practitioners going?
The embarrassing thing is that experts will not lose their jobs, they are just panic for the workers; while workers may lose their existing jobs, but they are not panicked. After all, the scope of thinking of the workers is only the present and there is no future.
The absence of panic for the migrant workers is also a blessing. In fact, their survivability and resilience are much stronger than we thought. When survival is threatened, workers will become very smart fighters and join their new positions.
For example, drivers are too lazy to fiddle with their mobile phones on weekdays, but the Didi subsidy war allows them to quickly learn to pay and grab orders. After the supermarket salesperson knows that there is a live broadcast to bring the goods, the full set of operating instructions is immediately familiar…the people of the earth know, even artificial intelligence Some jobs will really be eliminated, and more jobs will be created.
In fact, when cars were about to replace horse-drawn carriages, everyone experienced the same worry: business on the racecourse would drop sharply, the grooms would no longer have to run around with their whips, and the trainers would no longer be able to feel the mystery of the “humanity of horses”.
Even the jobs of picking horse dung on the road have disappeared, but the end result is that the automobile industry has created a large number of unprecedented jobs, dozens of times more than the carriage industry, including automobile designers, assemblers, quality inspectors, drivers, Traffic police, driving school instructors, car mechanics…the list goes on!
There is no doubt that technological progress will always make future life better, not worse, and those jobs that have disappeared due to artificial intelligence are bound to return in another form. First of all, artificial intelligence requires a lot of technology.
These are all jobs that workers can take, including code editing, system maintenance, label production, troubleshooting, etc., if you don’t need to be an artificial intelligence machine assembler; second, manual Intelligence still needs a new legal system and code of conduct. How to define these rules clearly and clearly requires a lot of data collection.
This is the job of grassroots personnel; finally, when artificial intelligence releases a large amount of labour, people The yearning for music, the pursuit of aesthetics, and the love of sports will be more enthusiastic. When people entertain their lives, they must be served by natural humans, not cold robots. Moreover, society has always been “people-oriented”, and managers will use administrative power to balance technological development and social stability.
Just as automated machines cannot be introduced into manufacturing plants all at once, it is to consider the job requirements of assembly line female workers. Experts worry that it is purely redundant.
