We are on the eve of a technological revolution. One we haven’t seen since the birth of the internet. A world with exponential development and human prosperity.
This is the world that A.I will create. But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Unfortunately, with this rapid change, some people will be left behind.
Millions of jobs will be replaced as the world becomes more automated. Ultimately, people will be forced to adapt or they will suffer the consequences. In this video, I will be going over 3 jobs that A.I will replace in the near future. So without further ado, let’s jump right in.
1. Freelance writing
With the advent of advanced chatbots such as ChatGPT and Jasper, the threat to freelance writing is frightening. In an industry dominated by a constant churn of low-quality and cheap outsourcing, this job does not have a bright future, to say the least.
Not to mention, how can content publishers guarantee that freelancers won’t just use A.I themselves and pass it as their own? Ultimately, there will be a shift from hiring a random person with broken English from fiver to rapidly producing articles using A.I.
This is a no-brainer for businesses when they can cut costs by 90%.
This isn’t even taking into account the implications A.I will have on search engines. I imagine that google and other search engines will integrate A.I directly, therefore, redirect people away from user-generated websites to their own content.
In turn, this may completely destroy the blogging business and reduce traffic to most other sites.
2. Manufacturing jobs
Next, we have manufacturing jobs. Currently, this is not a farfetched reality. More and more manufacturing jobs are being replaced by A.I everyday by increasing speed, precision, and overall efficiency.
From Amazon implementing package processing robots that can sort items at a rate that is 3 times that of humans to BMW using A.I image processing to identify defects in product quality there are several examples.
In the future, A.I will be leveraged for even more tasks. For instance, it will be used for system maintenance. Sensors and machine data will be combined with A.I to identify the condition of equipment rendering maintenance workers redundant.
I could go on and on, but let’s move on to the next sector.
Now this one you have probably guessed, but any job that involves drivers will be replaced by self-driving cars powered by A.I. With the recent rise of Tesla this reality is coming increasingly closer to fruition.
Hell, we are already seeing the early stages of it with the food delivery robots. Albeit they are not nearly as efficient as their human counterparts. But they are improving day to day.
At the end of the day, automated driving has unmatched benefits for businesses. For one, their efficiency is second to none as they allow continuous driving without needing breaks or time off.
Not to mention, they can also be programmed to follow precise routes and optimize their speed and fuel usage. Then when it comes to safety they will get to a stage shortly where they surpass humans.
Having split-second reaction times while not being affected by a lack of sleep or stress. As you may agree, this sector is an obvious choice for A.I to replace.

As you can see, as AI and automation technologies continue to advance, they are poised to revolutionize many industries and there will be widespread job displacement.
However, humanity will inevitably adapt and new jobs will emerge. I hope you found this article useful and thanks for reading it.
