According to a new report by Reform, almost 250,000 public sector workers could lose their jobs to robots over the next 15 years.

Husain Kassai is a co-founder of the Onfido, company which uses artificial technologies to deliver background checks.

He believes that the artificial intelligence revolution will take away intellectually repetitive work.

“You don’t need to do this kind of job anymore. Today, machines can learn the tasks and do them perfectly,” he says.

Actually, AI and robots don’t always replace people. In Status Today artificial intelligence is used to analyse human behaviour, but employees are still needed to work with the results.

Founder of the company, Ankur Modi, explains which jobs AI can help to create.

“It will only tell you what he has found. There will always be a person to analyse it, to understand what makes sense and what doesn’t, and implement it.

“There will be more project management on the top of AI. Also, there will be more need for data experts, who can understand the results.”

AI and robots were created to help people, not to take their jobs. So, be prepared but do not be frightened of it.
