Why AI  won’t take
our jobs away?… Not yet…


Uğur Köseoğlu

It is obvious that artificial intelligence excites us all. It would not be wrong to say that it worries some of us more than it excites us. This technology is advancing every day and the uncertainty about its potential impact on the labor market is increasing.
Will AI replace humans? Will millions of workers and unemployed people? Or will new job opportunities arise and increase the skills of us humans?

Let’s examine a little The Uneven Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Jobs It is widely accepted that artificial intelligence will have a significant impact on the labor market. However, the scope of this impact will vary across different industries and occupations. According to senior technology executives from Forbes Technology Council, it is very likely that certain jobs and industries will become fully automated in the next decade. For example; manufacturing and warehouse positions, long-haul transportation, research and data entry, customer service and insurance jobs. However, as businesses carefully weigh the risks and benefits of implementing artificial intelligence technology, the transition to automation is likely to be gradual.

While some jobs can be done entirely by artificial intelligence, there will still be a need for workers in many positions that can only be partially done by artificial intelligence. For example, security guards, receptionists, pilots, bus drivers, such as short-term situation-appropriate decision-making, ie initiative requiring, repetitive and learnable over time tasks involving jobs Strategic, emotional reasoning requiring jobs and certain military positions fall into this category.

It is worth noting that AI systems are already skilled at producing music and visual art, increasing the likelihood of eliminating the need for producers, composers, songwriters and other artists.

The Impact on Language and Art-Based Studies For many people, the potential of artificial intelligence to replace jobs that require writing and creativity is an area of concern. The number of advanced chatbots like ChatGPT has led to speculation about the future of jobs involving writing and seems to lead to more. AI already performs tasks such as creating social media posts, meeting customer service needs and writing certain emails, but jobs that require higher levels of creative and analytical writing will likely remain in the field of human studies. AI can help in generating the first drafts of ideas or content, but the ability to instill emotion and originality into written work is still primarily a human skill.

Similarly, AI systems have made progress in creating music and visual art, but have not yet been able to produce works that can compete and even if they do produce them, they will decide whether they are good with human emotions and present them to the market. because even if it is produced by AI, it will be produced through its own intermediary with art produced with name and creation idea bond. Just because of this emotional bond between the publisher and the producer, even if there are incentives for artificial intelligence technology companies to develop computer programs that produce works that leave deep emotional and intellectual impact on humans while creating art, it seems unlikely that they will completely replace human artists. However, it would be naive to think that the art market will not be affected by AI developments at all. The existence of art produced by AI can reduce costs and potentially disrupt the traditional model of paying artists for their work.

“What Positions Can Be Resistant to AI Pressure?

Experts generally agree that the likelihood of jobs that require a high level of emotional or social intelligence being replaced by other professions is low. These positions rely on qualitative, complex skill sets that are difficult to learn and repeat by AI. Managers, teachers, lawyers, graphic designers, computer scientists, psychiatrists and many artists have better job security because of the natural human qualities required in their jobs. In addition, it is not expected that AI will completely eliminate all job categories. Instead, it is likely to play an increasingly prominent role in various jobs and gradually replace some workers. Those workers who can effectively use AI systems to increase their human skills, contributions and performance will likely continue to find their place in the changing work environment.

New Job Potential

Although there are concerns about layoffs, it must be acknowledged that AI also has the potential to create new jobs and industries that we have not yet thought of. As AI technology continues to evolve, a revolution in the data field is inevitable, as AI systems need and rely on very large amounts of data to learn and improve. Therefore, we can say that the importance of people who have expertise in creating, finding, adding annotations, engineering and labeling data sources will increase. In addition, workers in sectors heavily affected by AI may not necessarily face job loss.

On the contrary, experts agree that those who have a deep understanding of how to leverage artificial intelligence systems to improve their performance will achieve great success. It is useful to remember that predictions about the impact of artificial intelligence on jobs are not certain. The failure of automation predictions to materialize as expected within a specific time frame, which would eliminate a significant portion of jobs, highlights the complexity and unpredictability of the relationship between artificial intelligence and employment.

In Summary To summarize the key points discussed in this analysis: AI is expected to have a significant impact on the labor market, but the scope of this impact will vary from country to country, across industries and occupations. Certain jobs such as manufacturing and warehouse positions, long-haul transportation, research and data entry, customer service and some insurance positions are more likely to disappear completely or become almost fully automated. Jobs based on physical skills as well as language and art can be partially replaced or affected by AI systems but will not disappear completely.

Jobs that require creativity as well as a high level of emotional or social intelligence can be said to be safe for now. The ability to adapt and effectively use artificial intelligence systems will be very important for individuals and businesses seeking job security and success in an AI-focused world.

We need to approach the issue of artificial intelligence and unemployment with caution. Although AI undoubtedly has the potential to transform the workforce, it is still too early to speak definitively. Those who will emerge unscathed from this process will be individuals and businesses who embrace the potential benefits of AI and proactively adapt to the changing landscape.”
