Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a popular and exciting topic within the world of technology these days. This can cause misunderstandings to turn into wild rumors. Here are five AI myths that you must stop believing.
1. AI Will Replace Your Job
Viewing AI as a direct transfer of human labor to machine labor is large over-simplification. Industrial revolutions in the past, such as the shift from agricultural work to factory work in the nineteenth century, have feared the same thing. However, the number of jobs has stayed consistent throughout. There is very little evidence to suggest a mass unemployment is likely to happen. Instead, AI technology will enable human workers to work in a more efficient and clever manner.
2. Low-Skilled & Manual Workers Are Most Likely To Be Replaced
Most of the focus for AI is reducing the laborious aspects of day-to-day work, often for the highly trained professions such as doctors and lawyers. In the medical field, AI is used to scan images, such as x-rays and MRIs, to detect early warning signs of different diseases. In the case of a lawyer, AI can be used to scan large documents at warp speed to find the most relevant information for an ongoing case. AI isn’t taking over these jobs but instead helping professionals use their time for more high-level work.
