Re: AI: Seizing the Prize
@Ariella I agree. Not only would repairs have to be done by a skilled worker, but the machines (robots or unmoving boxes, mostly robots) themselves would have to be configured to work in a particular enviornment as well as be installed for use in that enviornment.

The biggest concern of AI, I think, would be whether or not businesses can find skilled workers with the needed qualifications to use AI well, just as employers are having trouble finding properly qualified IoT proffessionals and problems with IoT security.

Re: AI: Seizing the Prize
@afwriter I consider repair and maintenance to be skilled work. Obviously, yes, even if IoT signals let people know which machines need that, someone will have to tend to it. The jobs more likley to be lost are those involving the simpler labor of moving things around a warehouse or assembling parts in a factory.

Re: AI: Seizing the Prize
@afwriter True. And those scanning guns go "wonky" a lot. They have technical problems just as you're finishing your entire order, forcing you to scan everything at the counter anyway. Also, I always get behind a 100-year-old when I'm in a hurry who thought they knew how to work the gun, but did not.

"well maybe self-scanning guns in supermarkets"

and they still have a human there to help when the gun goes wonky.

Re: AI: Seizing the Prize
There will probably be a few unskilled repair and maintenance jobs but for the most part, it will probably be writing software, debugging, etc. There is also the initial manufacturing of parts that could be considered unskilled labor.

Re: always 30 years in the future.. until now?
@mhhf1ve what do you mean by "take over the world"? Haha. Seriously though, I agree that this is a fascinating time and I like the analogy that it has always been 30 years into the future until now.

@mhhf1ve that depends on whether your views are more in sync with Elon Musk or with Mark Zuckerberg.

Re: AI: Seizing the Prize
My thoughts exactly @srulofo. The new jobs created will require advanced technical skills and so will not be open to many of the people displaced by automation.

AI: Seizing the Prize
New jobs created by AI would probably be jobs that have to do with AI, which would be mostly technology jobs. Other service jobs would fall by the wayside. Over the years, I've seen retail clerks in supermarkets, etc ... diminish, and even fewer bank tellers. I don't know what they've been replaced with (well maybe self-scanning guns in supermarkets), but it doesn't improve things when there are long lines.
