Jobs scenario will be soon revolutionized with the rapid integration of Artificial Intelligence. It is predicted that more than half of the jobs will be replaced by the next decade. A study conducted by PwC says that in the U.S.A, more than 38% of jobs would get replaced by AI over the next 15 years and are at higher risks.
Artificial Intelligence has paved its way through numerous fields& industries including advertising, health, finance, education, and inside some of the workplaces too! The most common interaction of ours with an AI-powered tool would be Chatbots, be it when asking for aninsurance-related query or somewhere else. They have eased our communicational services with the company but surely have removed some of the customer executives sitting there in the office.

But something is needed to be done your behalf and that would be, evolve!
Workers in different workplaces have to evolve their role and create a better position for themselves. And for this, you have to put up keen observation of the technology taking over your workplace, its trends, the inevitable changes, and the technologies being experimented. And then, sit tight and ponder hard in which slot human element is still required.
There surely would be no long-term impact if you have found the human element and have put up yourself for it.
