Is The Job Market As Good As It Was At The End Of The Clinton Administration?

Is The Job Market As Good As It Was At The End Of The Clinton Administration?

The U.S. economy is going strong nearly a decade after the Great Recession. The unemployment rate was 4.0 percent in June 2018, and fell even lower earlier in the year (3.8 percent in May 2018) before ticking up as new job seekers entered the labor force.

In fact, the job market is now better by numerous measures than it was before the Great Recession. Unemployment has only been at or below 4.0 percent twice since 1960: from 1966 to 1969, and during the economic boom at the end of the Clinton administration in 1999-2000.

Back then, on Jan. 7, 2000, Marketplace […]

Building an AI safety net

Artificial intelligence and related technologies will create as many jobs as they destroy in the UK over the next 20 years, according to PwC. The consultancy says its current forecasts suggest that the overall net effect of AI on UK jobs may be broadly neutral.

The economic sectors set to see the largest net increase in jobs due to AI over the coming two decades include health (+22%), professional, scientific and technical services (+16%) and education (+6%), according to PwC forecasts .

However, there’s bad employment news for others. The largest net long-term decreases in jobs will be in manufacturing (-25%), […]

An AI may kill your job, but it’ll also create millions more

An AI may kill your job, but it'll also create millions more

Artificial intelligence will create as many jobs as it displaces in the UK, but its impact will be felt disproportionately across different sectors, according to PwC research. According to the firm, AI is set to create 7.2 million jobs over the next 20 years, slightly more than the seven million predicted to be lost to automation.

However, the impact of new technologies won’t be felt evenly across all industries. Sectors like healthcare and education are set to benefit , whereas manufacturing and transport are estimated to see the largest decreases in jobs due to AI.

"People are understandably worried about the […]

AI and robotics forecast to generate 7.2 million jobs

AI and robotics forecast to generate 7.2 million jobs

A new report by PwC found that employees fear robots will replace them and artificial intelligence (AI) could, in fact, create as many jobs as it displaces.

According to the report, 7.2 million jobs could be created over the next 20 years, a slight edge on the 7 million job losses also predicted in the report.

“Artificial intelligence is a relatively new technology, and this unfamiliarity can cause people to feel uncertain about it. There is a massive wealth of opportunity with the implementation of Artificial Intelligence in terms of the jobs it will create, but there is also the need […]

AI will force millions to switch careers over the next two decades: PwC

AI will force millions to switch careers over the next two decades: PwC

AI will not result in large-scale unemployment, but it will force millions to retrain and switch careers over the next 20 years, according to a report by PwC.

The report found that AI will create around the same number of jobs as it destroys, dismissing previous fears that it would lead to rampant unemployment. However, it also found that there will be “winners” and “losers”, with some industries seeing significant decline in jobs while others will see a rise.

“Major new technologies, from steam engines to computers, displace some existing jobs but also generate large productivity gains,” […]

AI To Create Jobs, Claims PwC Report

Artificial intelligence will create as many jobs as it displaces by boosting economic growth, says analyst

The arrival of artificial intelligence (AI) will be a win for the UK jobs market as it will create as many jobs as it displaces by boosting economic growth over the next 20 years.

This is the claim in a new report from PwC , which found that although the overall effect on UK jobs is estimated to be broadly neutral, there will be “winners” and “losers” by industry sector.It comes after Oxford University researchers last Autumn warned that 80 percent of jobs in transportation, […]

Artificial intelligence will be net UK jobs creator, finds report

Artificial intelligence will be net UK jobs creator, finds report

Artificial intelligence is set to create more than 7m new UK jobs in healthcare, science and education by 2037, more than making up for the jobs lost in manufacturing and other sectors through automation, according to a report.

A report from PricewaterhouseCoopers argued that AI would create slightly more jobs (7.2m) than it displaced (7m) by boosting economic growth. The firm estimated about 20% of jobs would be automated over the next 20 years and no sector would be unaffected.

AI and related technologies such as robotics, drones and driverless vehicles would replace human workers in some areas, but also create […]

There’s No Such Thing as a Stable Career

The rapid development of automation and artificial intelligence is dramatically changing industries — and jobs — around the world.

But look back at the last century-plus of economic history, and it quickly becomes clear that such rapid technological change and disruption has long been the rule, not the exception. Categories of jobs once viewed as integral to Western economies have shrunk or essentially disappeared, only to be replaced by new ones.

Though these changes often take place on an international scale, the United States — as the world’s largest economy — has frequently been at the forefront of transformations in the […]

“Realm of Robotics” and “Human Employment”

“Realm of Robotics” and “Human Employment”

As we all know “What is robotics?”, “How are robots useful in human life?”. Robotics is the combination of mechanical, electronics & computer science engineering. In the initial days for many people, the robot is a playing thing that useful for kids to play. After that people thought it is one machine which imitates human and useful for small tasks which human can do repeatedly. Nowadays, people believing robotics may decrease the jobs but, it is wrong. A robot is just a machine under the control of the human. The robots should satisfy the human needs. Without the human […]
