Couch Lessons: AI + The Future of Work
Artificial intelligence will turn the world of work upside down. It will lay the groundwork for a new form of automation. More and more job profiles and work processes will first be supplemented by artificial intelligence, and later perhaps entirely replaced by it. If the projections are correct, forty percent of all current jobs will be eliminated within the next fifteen years. Why hire a human being when a computer can do the same job more efficiently and at a lower cost? On the other hand, digitization will create completely new jobs and it offers the possibility that humanity can devote itself to other activities rather than just working to earn a living. So what will the work of tomorrow look like?
