Will the AI revolution create or destroy jobs?
The answer is yes. It will create and destroy jobs. Which will be more? Historically looking at technology revolutions - technology revolutions generally create more jobs than they destroy. So, it's likely AI will be the same way. The challenge, though, is that AI, when it destroys jobs, will do so completely. So routine jobs such as back office jobs and assembly line jobs and in the future, jobs like drivers and many office workers that do routine jobs, will be outright replaced by AI. So that's a significant issue.
AI will also create jobs, but we don't yet know what those are, when they will be. One thing that is known is that the jobs created by AI will be non-routine jobs. So, there is a big issue about routine job workers who lose their jobs and now have to be retrained for the non-routine jobs.
