On Monday, October 2, Peter Sondergaard at Gartner Symposium said that "AI will be a net job creator starting in 2020". How robots and AI will change the future of jobs is the big question now in everyone’s mind. According to Gartner, 8 million candidates are working in the IT field but, out of them only 1,250 to 1500 candidates are familiar with artificial intelligence. Simultaneously, 10% of companies are looking to hire candidates who are expert in machine learning and AI, to yield better results.
Sondergaard said that by the year 2020, AI will destroy nearly 1.8 million jobs, but at the same time, it will create 2.3 million jobs. This means that AI will bring about 5,00,000 job openings globally. He also stated that "One year later, AI augmentation of the workforce will create about $3 trillion in business value, while saving billions of hours of work … so AI will help find, develop and augment your people. AI will be a net job creator starting in 2020."
Gartner analyst stated that organizations should be more innovative towards bringing the hidden skills and power of existing employees to light. “Gartner predicts one in three jobs will be converted to software, robots and smart machines by 2025,” said Gartner research director Peter Sondergaard. “New digital businesses require less labor; machines will make sense of data faster than humans can.”
