BigDataFr recommends: A Robot Took My Job – Was It a Robot or AI?
[…] There’s been a lot of contradictory opinion in the press recently about future job loss from robotics and AI. They range from Bill Gates’ hand wringing assertion that we should slow this down by taxing robots to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s seemingly luddite observation “In terms of artificial intelligence taking over the jobs, I think we’re so far away from that that it’s not even on my radar screen. I think it’s 50 or 100 more years.”
But these extreme end points of the conversation aren’t the worst of it. There is essentially no effort in the popular press to differentiate ‘robot’ from ‘AI’.
AI enhanced robots are much in the press and much on the mind of data scientists. So is it principally advances in deep learning (AI) that are the main cause of future job loss or robots as they currently exist?
