Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer an artifact of science fiction; It exists all around us in the world. AI is the handyman that can automate simple tasks and drastically improve all our lives.
The recently launched Artificial Intelligence tool GPT-3 has been causing a stir online. Because of its impressive ability to design websites, prescribing medication, and answering questions.
GTP is short for Generative Pre-training Transformer, and the recent launch version is the third generation of this machine learning model when Computers can automatically learn from their experiences without any external programming that is called as Machine Learning.
Artificial Intelligence can also be used to complete an incomplete image automatically using its tools to suggest what pixels should be in the image based on its database.
Being called it as hype, OpenAI’s CEO Sam Altman says it is “way too much.” As it still has severe weaknesses and sometimes makes ridiculous mistakes.
While artificial intelligence can respond to various ‘common-sense’ questions to which the answers would be apparent to a human are available with the machine. Again the issues which make no sense get responded to as if they are not. Questions relating to how many eyes does a foot have? Or that how many rainbows will it take to travel from Hawaii to seventeen?, says Kevin Lacker, a computer scientist who formerly worked at Facebook and Google.
While GPT-2, the previous version, had about 1.5 billion parameters that could be incorporated. While the new version, GTP-3, has 175 billion settings. Parameters are those variables which affect the data’s prominence in the machine learning tool. It helps to change the effects of the output of the device.
How will Artificial Intelligence and automation affect the future workforce as it becomes increasingly capable?
It is evident that jobs right now could very well replace human workers by machines and algorithms in many industries.
Efficiency, in the long run, matters profoundly as it is the matter of the race to provide quality aspects to the world. It is easier to invest in Robots who make minimal mistakes than humans who account for various human errors due to sickness or general laziness or any miscalculations.
Which sections of jobs might be at risk:
Why: Unlike other sales roles, telemarketers don’t require a high level of social or any emotional aspects, Intelligence to be successful. It is 2020, and many people don’t even purchase anything from telemarketers anymore. You probably are receiving robocalls on behalf of various products and services even now.
Why: You can bet that an industry that is solely powered by quantities and numbers can work on Artificial Intelligence. You must have witnessed that chatbots have replaced customer services in various major banks, relieving them of the minor queries.
Computers can help monitor current trends and can be entirely focused at the same time and, more importantly, can be quick in forecasting. While the customers won’t feel a significant impact, the finance sector is sure to be struck by AI.
Why: For a long time, it was known that the lawyers believed the industry would not get affected by AI. Perhaps not the judges and lawyers for now, but most paralegal and legal research roles by the next decade may see changes.
Today’s time requires hard research that can be expensive and tedious for human beings—getting a machine that works under the legal firm to collect content quickly by following all the logical and legal steps. Probably future lawyers can win cases with high automation and AI techniques using less money and even lesser time.
Why: There is no secret, but healthcare pays quite well, and being a doctor, or a pharmacist is tough. The job requires tremendous trust. It is witnessed that digital consultants are growing technology in the healthcare sector already.
Artificial Intelligence that is backed up with in-depth learning data which can produce informed decisions and diagnoses for clinics.
Receptionists, Couriers, Proofreaders, Computer Support Specialists, Market Research Analysts, Advertising Salespeople, Retail Salespeople, Travel sector (Railways, Airways, etc.) and various other job sectors can get affected with the growth of AI and automation with technology increasing its branches.
Is this Good for us?
It is evident that be it technology or not; everything has its pros and cons. Many argue behind automation isn’t all that bad for human employees. Machines doing hard work can mean that humans get more time to invest in some other activities.
But, many economists fear that inequality may widen due to industries’ obsession with AI and the booming technological aspects. Resulting in many employees, this part of technology can extend the disparity. AI is only suitable for those higher up sectors in the curve.
Many sectors related to sales managers, marketing managers, Public relations managers, Human Resource Managers, Writers, Chief Executives, Event Planners, Software developers, Graphic designers, Editors, and various others might not get affected. But, you never know you might just read a fantasy based novel which technology builds with the help of someone’s imagination!
Change is definitely about to come, but it’s not here just yet. But, the time requires employees to know what kind of jobs in their industry are at risk and should gradually build skills and relations to make themselves indispensable.
