Preparing Kids for Artificial Intelligence Takeover
Publisher: IFIOKOBONG ENE
Do you want your kids to have a bright future?
Then teach them about Artificial Intelligence, and guide them through the process of choosing the right careers- careers that will still be relevant when robots and automated machines take over.
Artificial intelligence is going to take over the world in the next few years.
Artificial intelligence and robotic technologies are revolutionizing the personal and professional lives of people all over the world.
Robots are coming for our jobs and we can't run away from that.
Price Waterhouse Coops, a leading Professional Services Network has predicted that Artificial Intelligence technology will replace at least 38% of all jobs in the USA.
Some other experts have predicted that up to 45% of existing jobs will be lost to robots and automated machines.
Many AI developers have already built machines that can replace humans in the healthcare industry.
One startup, Sense.ly, developed a digital nurse called Molly. Molly can independently take care of a patient by using machine-learning technology to understand a patient's medical history, diagnose and monitor the patient's conditions, remind them of time to take their prescriptions, remind them of doctor's appointments, and provide general support to the patient.
This robot can perform many of the job tasks of a human nurse.
Another artificial intelligence-powered health app AiCure, can assist in monitoring the use of medication by a patient through a smartphone webcam, and tell on a patient when they are not taking their prescriptions.
Now with all of these innovations in the healthcare industry, imagine that you have a child whose ambition is to be a doctor, a nurse or a laboratory assistant.
It's obvious that much of the medical profession would have been taken over by automation by the time that they are done with medical school and they'll end up with educational qualifications and a certificate that no one needs.
However, not all professions in the medical field or in other industries can be taken over by AI technology- there are jobs and skills that are farfetched even for the most sophisticated robots and on the bright side, the rise of Artificial Intelligence and robotic technology is expected to lead to 1400% increment in startups which means; more jobs are coming but only for people who have the right skills and qualifications.
But which jobs, which skills and what qualifications?
Your job as a parent is to guide your child, show them which career paths and get them interested in the careers that will still exist and remain relevant by the time they are ready to join the labor market.
It is your duty as a parent, to prepare your kids for this coming revolution.
