AI Won't Steal Your Job, People Using it Will.
Last Update: May 29, 2023
Today it is time for a reality check! There's a rumor making rounds that machines are going to steal our jobs. Does it sound like a sci-fi movie to you too?
Here's the thing though...it's not the AI that's eyeing your job, it's the people making use of AI.
Unmasking the True Face of AI: A Tool, Not a Threat
Now, before we get all tangled in the intricacies, let's lay the groundwork and demystify what AI is.
No, it's not a superhuman entity from the future.
It's an intelligent tool, an algorithm whisperer that makes sense out of data. Lots of data. And makes sense of that data incredibly fast.
Think of it as an efficient sidekick that helps you become faster, more efficient, and innovative. Picture self-driving cars - they're not replacing drivers, rather giving people a chance to sit back, relax or work on something else during the journey.
That is what I believe AI will do to all aspects of life. It will lead to newfound efficiency in our mundane and our more arduous tasks, freeing up more time for CREATIVITY.
The Real Game Changers: People Proficient in AI
Ready for a little bit of a twist here?
AI is transforming the job market. But the real risks to the "conventional" jobs is not AI itself, it is the the smart people harnessing the power of AI, creating new paths and opportunities.
Businesses are embracing AI to streamline their operations. Who do you think helps them with that? It's people with AI expertise. It's the new gold rush and those who know their way around AI are the prospectors.
And the great thing is that we are going to keep you "on top of the AI game" here at WA, as we continue to advance our AI-side services, our education, and our mentorship.
The Survival Mantra in the AI Era: Adapt and Overcome
So, how do you make sure you aren't left behind? Simple: Adapt. Learn. Evolve. AI is an epoch-making tool, but you're the one in control.
Learn the ropes of AI, understand its role in your field. Update your skills. Try your hand at machine learning, or data analysis. You don’t have to be the next Turing or Von Neumann...but a basic understanding of AI can give you a significant advantage.
We are the most active community on the planet for internet entrepreneurs...taking on the challenges and newfound opportunities that AI represents is going to be one of the core focuses as we move forward.
So we have you covered.
Putting Things in Perspective: People vs. AI
When it comes to AI and jobs, it's not the machines that call the shots. It's the people leveraging the power of those machines you might want to keep an eye on. It is the creativity of these people (like yourself) that are going to discover new and more efficient ways to do things, and to harness the power of AI.
But don't fret. You are the one in the POWER position.
In the grand scheme of things, AI is merely a tool. And you the creative director. Equip yourself with the knowledge and skills you need to stay relevant. You're resilient. You're competent. You're ready for whatever comes next.
Now it's your turn to jump in on this discussion..
