Millennials aren’t just the largest consumer group. They are now the primary workforce. This means that just like their parents and grandparents worried about how machines and computers could take their jobs, millennials have the same concerns about Artificial Intelligence. In fact, nearly 81% worry about their work duties being fully or partially taken over by AI technology according to Forbes.

You’ve seen the sci-fi movies where the humans create the robots to help them out and then the robots become too intelligent, rebel against their creators, and then someone like Arnold has to save the day. The creation of artificial intelligence and its prevalence today has got many workers worried that they’ll be replaced. But we always need to remember that automation has been happening for decades, even centuries. People are always trying to find ways to make work more efficient. And sometimes that means automating or using artificial intelligence to take tasks and make them happen more quickly.
Some researchers predict that AI might lead to the creation of new job opportunities. However, this effect will vary from sector to sector. For the millennial generation, this would require a strategic career choice and continuous efforts to keep up with workplace changes. The best part about machine learning and AI as a whole is that it requires implementation, management, and oversight and this still requires a human hand. But the number of employees with the required set of skills to handle such jobs is still lower than the demand. A young professional who therefore embarks on developing such skills has a likelihood of remaining relevant.

Remember the last time you had to “talk” to an automated answering machine? It was frustrating, right? It did not understand you or the little nuances of your conversation. In a similar way, the development and implementation of AI may actually highlight our need for human experiences. As much as we love efficiency, we crave humanity and warmth. We frame our experiences through an emotional lens. This is why AI will never replace creativity or personal service. There will always be a need for leaders and entrepreneurs who can empathize, create and dream up new ideas, products, and services.
Artificial Intelligence is still in its infancy and is yet to reach the point of mass adoption. As such it’s difficult to predict the extent to which it will redefine the workplace or the jobs of the young professionals within it. There is an ever-growing need for highly-skilled, well-trained, and adaptable employees who can work alongside very smart machines. For many, this will mean focusing on technical training, like STEM (Science.Technology.Engineering.Math) programs. For others, working alongside AI may look a lot more human, as they figure out how AI can best integrate into life, work, and leisure.
