Innovations in technology - especially AI - are headed towards an unprecedented rise in the last few years, making our life comfortable in multiple ways. However, scholars and experts dread these developments. Experts from China has warned that with the rise in AI over time, at least half of the current jobs will be taken over by AI within 15 years. Kai-Fu Lee, the author of bestselling book AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order told the world of employment was facing a crisis; the one like the farmers faced during the industrial revolution.'

'People aren't really fully aware of the effect AI will have on their jobs,' he said.
Lee, who is a VC in China and once headed up Google in the region, has over 30 years of experience in AI.

He believes it is imperative to 'warn people there is displacement coming and to tell them how they can start retraining.'

Luckily, he said all is not lost for humanity.
'AI is powerful and adaptable, but it can't do everything that humans are capable of doing.'
Lee believes AI cannot create, conceptualize, or do complex strategic planning, or undertake complex work that requires precise hand-eye coordination.
He also says it is poor at dealing with unknown and unstructured spaces. Sounds true.


Crucially, he says AI cannot interact with humans 'exactly like humans', with empathy, human-human connection, and compassion.

Psychiatrists, social workers, and marriage counselors are unlikely to lose their jobs, along with nurses, AI researchers and scientists, he believes.
However, some jobs will disappear- and quickly. Below are the job lists he reveals.
