A new report by Intel and the JFF organization (Jobs for the Future) highlights the impact that artificial intelligence (AI) will have on employment. The report shows that up to 80% of the workforce will experience a change in at least 10% of their work tasks due to the integration of artificial intelligence, while 19% may experience a change in about half of their current tasks.
Studies indicate that artificial intelligence will turn 30% of working hours into automation, i.e. a monumental change in the employment landscape. By 2030, it is estimated that 12 million workers in the US will have to move to new roles or fields, which emphasizes the need to prepare the market for significant change on a large scale. The report also shows that women are more exposed to the influence of artificial intelligence on their role, 5.8 million women and 3.6 million men are currently in positions that are very sensitive to the influence of artificial intelligence.
In order to benefit from the contribution of AI capabilities in the labor market without harming employment, Intel and JFF provide a clear road map for how it is necessary to equip the workforce with artificial intelligence skills that will ensure a future of equal, competitive and satisfying work. With one emphasis on not procrastinating, the time to act in favor of effective AI integration is now.
Investments and strategies for workforce development are also recommended: urgent investment in artificial intelligence training and education is needed, with a clear role for policy makers to support and fund artificial intelligence curricula. Employers are being urged to ensure AI literacy across their workforce.
According to Intel's vision, it predicts that artificial intelligence will not only change technical tasks but also raise the importance of interpersonal skills, especially in customer engagement and leadership positions.
"The rapid progress of artificial intelligence presents us with a unique opportunity to modernize and strengthen the US workforce. At Intel, we understand that alongside the enormous potential of AI to upgrade industry and the quality of life, there is the responsibility to ensure that every employee is ready for this new era. Through collaborations with legislators and academic institutions, we are leading the way in creating a learning and training infrastructure that will enable everyone to face the challenges and opportunities of the future," said Brian Gonzalez, director of the government partnerships and initiatives department at Intel.
