Artificial intelligence (AI) is advancing by leaps and bounds, and with it, the automation of tasks that were previously performed by humans. This raises a crucial question: what is the impact of AI on the job market? Does it really pose a threat to our jobs?


Automation and the Risk of Unemployment

It is undeniable that AI will automate many functions, especially repetitive and manual tasks. This automation could lead to the disappearance of some roles, particularly in areas such as manufacturing, transportation and administrative services.

A McKinsey Global Institute study estimates that up to 800 million jobs could be lost to automation by 2030. However, the study also finds that AI could create 950 million new jobs over the same period.


The Changing Nature of Work

Rather than eliminating human labor completely, AI is likely to transform the nature of work. Repetitive tasks will be automated, while activities that require creativity, empathy and social intelligence will gain even more importance.

In the future, workers will need to develop skills complementary to AI, such as:


  • Critical thinking and problem solving

  • Criativity and innovation

  • Communication and teamwork

  • Social intelligence and empathy

  • Adaptability and continuous learning



Preparing for the Future of Work


To thrive in a world dominated by AI, it’s critical to prepare for the changes that lie ahead. Some important tips:


  • Invest in education and skills development: Enhance your current skills and develop new skills complementary to AI.

  • Be adaptable and flexible: Be ready to change careers or adapt to new roles within your field.

  • Learn to work with AI: Use AI as a tool to increase your productivity and improve your work.

  • Networking and collaboration: Create a network of professional contacts and be open to collaborating with other professionals.



AI is not a threat to human work, but rather a force that will transform the nature of work. The key to success in the future of work is preparing for these changes and developing the skills needed to thrive in an increasingly automated world.
