You know, there are a lot of conversations about how AI will replace jobs. Particular industries like manufactoring, marketing, customer service, and IT be disrupted more than others. But I see this as an opportunity to realign our workforce into areas that could use more human attention.
For example, maybe the manufacturing of solar panels will become totally automated - but whos is going to install all these mass produced (government subsidized) panels? As for customer service and manual farm labor, it seems like the next generation of human recruits are not signing up, but we still need more daycare workers and teachers.
Also, if your current IT job can be automated, then chances are you're spending most of your time daydreaming about being some place else. Wouldn't you rather level up to a software or database engineer?
