I’ve been putting off saying this for long. But now I think is the right time to say this. AI is now threatening many jobs. This is the time that everyone needs to “AI proof” themselves.
This is not going to be easy. Almost all knowledge work can be replaced by AI. You need something more than just information or creativity to stay relevant.
What are those things that “AI proof” you?
There are a few things like decision making, a unique blend of variety of skills, good taste, presentation skills, selling, pitching, deal making, negotiation, singing, dancing, helping people, managing people & resources. And there can be some more.
But a lot of jobs are seriously threatened. To give a few examples, copywriters, script writers, designers, social media managers, architechts. And more.
AI is a threat not just to jobs but entire businesses. Google is one big example. Who would have thought a company as big and monopolistic can be threatened by AI. But it is. Google search is at the brink of disruption. It’s more likely to happen than ever before.
We’re at an important junction in the entire spectrum of human life. Just like computers changed everything for everyone, so did mobile phones, and so did the internet. AI is now knocking at the doors. Fortunes are going to be made and some big castles will go down to dust. Brace for AI(mpact)!
