Artificial Intelligence And Automation Are Taking Jobs From People

Change isn’t just coming, it’s here. Already numerous large scale corporations and businesses have embraced Artificial Intelligence (AI). Domino’s and Nuro is starting a robot pizza delivery, Netflix has launched a sophisticated AI to get you the content you want and Uber has already beta tested and delivered self driving cars. AI promises to deliver some of the most important and disruptive innovations of this century. And while that may be scary for some who think robots are coming for their jobs, they’re missing one of the key points. AI isn’t created out of the thin air, it’s carefully constructed and built by computer programmers. 

Demand for talented software engineers has more than doubled in the past few years, including during the pandemic. There are literally limitless opportunities for professionals who want to work on the cutting edge of AI research and development. No matter what the emerging AI economy means for the future workforce, college students and young professionals stand to greatly benefit from entering this expanding field. 

By learning programming concepts and skills, you’re not just gaining new skills but also future-proofing your entire career. When it comes to the best jobs for the future, few industries stand out as much as tech and artificial intelligence. A 2019 report from Gartner illustrates how job postings for AI have grown 270% in the past four years. While so many industries have met an untimely death as our society advances, this one has not just grown but surged.

If you’re looking for work and coming up short, a transition to tech seems like a no-brainer. Next time you see a drone fly by or use a self-checkout take a moment to appreciate that someone got paid a nice chunk of change to build the code inside the machine and with the right training, that someone could be you.
