5 Jobs Artificial Intelligence Can’t Take Away From Humans

 


Pretty soon, robots will take over the world, and humanity will become a distant memory.

Artificial Intelligence is invading human territory to take our jobs away, but these robots are going to have a hard time getting everything right.



Here are 5 jobs that A.I. can’t take away from humans… at least, not yet.

1. AUTHORS

When you think about it, writing is just rearranging words that already exist.

So, A.I. should be able to figure out patterns in language to make their own stories. And, they have!

Well, sort of.

One game of Thrones fan and professional programmer named Zack Thought was sick and tired of waiting for George R.R. Martin to write his next book, The Winds of Winter.

So he decided to create artificial intelligence software to write it for him.

Just to give you a taste of the results, here is a quote:

“This dragon does not say we had four of a band, or no men or rats and two singers, the great pack of men and the winged trees.“

Maybe that story would make sense after a few glasses of wine, but it’s not likely that a robot will publish a New York Times bestseller any time soon.

2. Fashion Designers and Tailors

Unless you’re a fashion designer, most people in the western world don’t bother learning how to sew clothes anymore.

The majority of the clothing in the world is made by people living in Third World countries like Bangladesh, India, Pakistan where their working conditions are appalling.

3. Psychologist

One thing that artificial intelligence is truly terrible at is showing empathy.

Since it has never been a human, how can it understand our emotions?

Chatbots can’t pass the Turing Test, which means they can’t communicate on the same level as a human conversation.

Alexa and Siri can’t even understand our search requests half the time. Do we really want them to give us advice about our traumatic childhood memories from the third grade?

We certainly don’t think so. Besides, therapists need to pay off their crippling student loan debt somehow, and not everyone can be a weirdly successful radiotherapist.

4. Doctors

Artificial Intelligence is beginning to break into the medical field.

In the future, we’ll be able to get a simple diagnosis by taking a photo on your smartphone. A.I. will run through a database of photographs and compare them with yours to see if there’s a match.

There are already programs that exist that can check for skin cancer on that mole you’ve been meaning to get checked out, and another that will look for diabetic eye disease.

Heart monitoring watches already have the ability to check for an irregular heartbeat, as well.

As time goes on, more and more medical issues can be diagnosed at home.

However, that doesn’t mean A.I. will be taking the place of real doctors.

People will always need a human to communicate with about their body, and there needs to be a sense of accountability, in case something goes wrong.

5. Musicians

Artificial Intelligence has been able to create its own music, from Irish folk songs to marimba, and it’s actually quite good.

In Japan, a fictional video game android called Hatsune Miku is so popular that she already sells out her own concerts.

But don’t worry.

There’s no way A.I. can kill “Lisztomania,” which is the phenomenon fans feel towards their favorite musicians.

Robots will probably never replace dreamy photos tacked on bedroom walls of little girls everywhere, which means that pop stars are safe, at least for now.
