Scientists: 120 million people need retraining, otherwise they will be replaced by robots
According to scientists, about 120 million workers in the world can be left without their jobs, because they can easily be replaced by artificial intelligence.
The only thing that can help to keep a job is retraining and continuing education courses.
Many tasks can be solved with the help of robots, because the algorithms are becoming more advanced. Already, they are performing a number of simple tasks, replacing employees.
However, artificial intelligence cannot be taught to think creatively and to “be human,” that is, to demonstrate diplomacy skills, negotiate, and make unusual decisions. In addition, robots do not have empathy, which is quite an important quality in many business sectors.
Analysts believe that retraining courses should be taken by everyone, since communicative skills and the basics of psychology will help preserve the workplace.
