Study Shows that AI Won’t Impact Jobs by 2026, Here’s Why

One of the biggest questions surrounding AI is the manner in which it would impact jobs. Many are concerned that AI would make jobs obsolete due to how it would be able to perform various tasks more efficiently as well as effectively than might have been the case otherwise. In spite of the fact that this is the case, a study by Gartner has revealed that AI will actually have a minimal impact on the availability of jobs by 2026.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that AI is not currently capable of outperforming humans when it comes to the vast majority of tasks. Three skills in particular are going to be secure through 2033, namely personal care and therapy, building new scientific theories as well as moral and ethical reasoning. Humans will be better at these skills than AI at least until 2033 according to the findings presented within this study.

Three other skills are also in the clear, with AI not being able to come close to humans in the present year and it will end up being on part with humans at some point or another in the upcoming decade. These three skills are writing bestselling books, creating music as well as conducting financial analyses. Whenever AI catches up with humans, it will likely complement people that are performing these jobs rather than replacing them entirely.

Of course, there are some jobs that AI will get better at than humans even if it’s not currently on par. Software programming is a skill that AI is already equal to humans at, although it is still a useful tool and it won’t be replacing humans anytime soon. Apart from that, medical scan diagnosis, driving, facial recognition, translation and playing video games are all skills that AI has equalled humans in, and by the late 20s it will have replaced humans.

It bears mentioning that most of these skills are not extremely valuable jobs save for medical scan diagnosis, which essentially indicates that not that many job are going to be eliminated at least in the near future. The only skill that has already become obsolete in the face of AI is weather prediction, with most others holding their own for the time being.
