There is an increasing worry that with the current rise of invisible machines, robots may end up outsmarting people. There is a possibility that robots will doom many professions 20 years from now. Artificial intelligence is quickly threatening the medical field. A startup known as Arterys has, for instance, come up with a program that has the capacity of performing an analysis of the blood known as magnetic-resonance within 15 seconds. When human conduct the same analysis, they are likely to take at least 45 minutes. The careers of surgeons are not safe either. According to Scientific America, a robot surgeon known as Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot (STAR) outdid the human surgeons in repairing some intestines of a live pig.
Law is a career that requires lawyers to conduct a lot of document review. Those who do the reviews are most likely to be robbed off their livelihood. There are software programs already being used by companies to scan papers and reveal the critical documents. JPMorgan Chase $ Company is one of the firms that are using this software to save time by between 20 and 60 percent. Just recently, the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency also known as Darpa developed a robotic co-pilot that flew and landed a simulation of 737. According to a survey conducted in the year 2015, pilots spend seven seconds only flying the airplane. It is time we usher in the era of driverless vehicles and acknowledge that pilotless planes are not far from becoming a reality.
When it comes to the banks, well, the robots are already beginning to take charge. According to Bloomberg, a software program with the capacity to suggest bets and predict monetary policy is already being used by big banks. BlackRock for instance laid off some of the most paid human stock keepers and replaced them with algorithms. According to a research that was conducted by the University of Oxford Department of Engineering Science in the year 2013, over 47 percent of the current jobs risk automation within the next decade or two. They include insurance underwriters, loan officers, as well are sports referees. The McKinsey Global Institute recently released a report stating that in the next 10 years or so, over a third of the American populace might be required to switch their jobs as artificial intelligence will replace them. All said, the roles of health coaches will remain evergreen.
