According to Elon Musk, artificial intelligence will overtake humans by 2030

Technology is changing and reshaping our world in many different ways: flying cars, drones delivering your food, smart homes… will quickly become a reality…

The world of artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the way you interact with the world, as these technologies increase productivity and make life easier. They will replace some work activities that humans currently perform. Economists who have analyzed the trend towards automation in the workplace have noted that the use of robots worldwide has tripled over the past two decades. The latter will become cheaper than human workers, while working easily in a diverse environment. The economic effect of a 30% increase in the current rate of robot installation, in France and elsewhere, would contribute to a 5.3% increase in global GDP. With robots faster and more efficient than humans, this equates to adding $4.9 trillion per year to the global economy by 2030.

As robots replace humans, tens of millions of jobs will be lost. Especially in sectors that depend on low-skilled workers. This will automatically result in income inequality. For China, the world’s second largest economy, this represents about 20% of the world’s robot stocks, or about 11 million jobs lost, in the United States the number is expected to be 1.2 million according to international reports.

Robots, Artificial Intelligence…

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation trare shaping the way companies communicate with their customers and run their operations. Industry transformation has led to changing skill requirements. According to specialists, 34% of HR managers will invest in learning and retraining workforce as part of their strategy to prepare for the future of work.

These technologies are bringing many benefits such as higher productivity, GDP growth, improved performance and faster communication across the world… but also changing the way we view human workers today.

In an interview with the New York Times, the technological avant-garde Elon Musk said artificial intelligence will take over humans by 2030… AI beat international chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov in 1997… Limited memory can store existing data and create better output using the data. For example, Tesla’s self-driving cars observe the speed and direction of vehicles and act accordingly.

The behavior resulting from Artificial Intelligence (AI) comparable to that of a human being through a machine or a system is the result of programming carried out by man. The machine performs programmed tasks within the framework of binary thought (black or white). But man is multi-tasking and enjoys the ability to learn within the framework of more complex thought.
Computers and software have improved the qualities of problem solving, reasoning, knowledge, learning and of planning.

Many companies, large, medium or small, are now relying on Artificial Intelligence (AI) to answer customer FAQs and support questions. Examples: chatbots, conversational robots that communicate in writing and in natural language with users, do not tolerate spelling mistakes and adapt to SMS language. They understand the questions asked by customers and provide personalized answers based on their profile. They take care of many internal requests: accounting and data entry, receptionist, proofreading, pharmaceutical manufacturing and work, retail services, robot-surgeon doctors…

What about job sustainability?

Experts such as those at Fortune state that “Robots will replace 40% of jobs in the next 15 years”. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cutting-edge technology expect processes to become smarter and machines to be more humanized in the long run. According to the World Intelligence Congress, Artificial Intelligence (AI), virtual personal assistants and chatbots will replace nearly 69% of the human workload by 2030. Over time, the market will adapt to technological disruption.

The future looks bright with advances in artificial intelligence and robots in the workplace. At the same time, it portends a bleak future for humans if robots take over the majority of jobs. New jobs and types of jobs will be created quickly. The biggest challenge will be to have the necessary skills to ensure the transition to the new jobs. With enough investment and innovation, it must create jobs to offset the impact of automation.

But human creativity knows no bounds. strategic thinking, the leadership enlightened, conflict resolution and negotiation, emotional intelligence and empathy are professional qualities that AI can never replace. Professions will stand the test of time, with near-zero likelihood of robots taking over: HR managers, writers, lawyers, psychiatrists, graphic designers, software developers…
While Artificial Intelligence (AI) has a bright future and will be one of the essential tools for organizations of the future, the best of them are unlikely to replicate the warmth and understanding of a human being.
