New report predicts AI technology will establish more than 2 million jobs two years from now
Although job creation and elimination will vary by industry leading up to that point, research and advisory company Gartner is speculating artificial intelligence will create more jobs than it replaces by 2020 — eliminating 1.8 million and generating 2.3 million positions that year.
The company’s recent AI report suggests healthcare, the public sector and education will see consistently increasing job demand through 2019, and in 2021, AI technology is expected to generate $2.9 trillion in business value and recover 6.2 billion hours of worker productivity.
By 2022, Gartner says one in five workers engaged in mostly non-routine tasks will rely on artificial intelligence to do a job.
