Will AI Replace Your Jobs?

 |  Tech

As more advances in technology are made, the need for human labor diminishes. One automated machine can perform the work of ten men; it’s fairly obvious then that employers would find machines more cost effective and efficient than human labor. Added to this AI promises a lower margin for error and thus lower losses.

AI for automationThe field of AI is ever growing from new updates to Siri on your iPhone 7 to robots that can act as store clerks. Even jobs like those of travel agents can be taken over with AI. The potential that AI has is staggering, and there is a high probability that AI will replace some jobs.

However not all jobs can be done by a machine, and most of the time humans are required to operate/tune/fix the machines.

But, just in case you are scared your field of work might replace you for AI, Here is a list of 5 jobs that will be affected by AI:

5 Jobs That Will Go Out in the Next 10 Years

1. Accounting

AI for AccountingThis field will see a definite decline in human employment with the growth of AI. Less and fewer people are likely to be employed in this sector since AI can perform all the functions of an accountant more efficiently and cheaply. Added to this, it’s obvious that AI, e.g., a computer is likely to make fewer mistakes while computing costs, etc. than a human being.

2. Banking

ATMs already reduced the need for human labor, but AI again poses a threat to jobs in the banking sector. Online money transfers, online account sign ups, etc. all negate the need for human labor and thus reduce employment in the banking industry.

3. Financial Analysts

The development of AI here is fantastic. AI can analyze historical and current data, predict trends and allow organizations and governments to make relevant changes in their policies and portfolios. While FA could also do this, there was less accuracy in their analysis, and it took longer for them to analyze data. So AI poses a significant threat to the jobs of financial analysts.

4. Manual Labor

AI for LaborMachines pose a threat even to jobs in the manual labor sector. Companies have developed robotic bricklayers that once added to construction sites can replace 2-3 workers at a time. Even machine drivers like crane and bulldozer operators pose a threat to their jobs due to AI.

5. Acting

CGI is at once a blessing and curse. Personally, few things gave me greater pleasure than seeing a 21-year-old Princess Leia in Rogue One thanks to CGI. However, the problem remains that as this technology develops more, there will be fewer openings for new actors since the old loved ones could just reappear younger looking in new films.

This much is evident – AI has a significant chance of taking over these jobs in the next ten years or so. It might be a better idea to look for careers in other fields like medicine, or engineering.

Why people think iPhones are a must have gadget

 |  Tech, Tips

Smart-phonesThe most common tech gadget that we use in our daily life is surely a smartphone. I have been using smartphones ever since they came into existence. I am a tech savvy guy and for me there is no compromise in choosing the best and latest techs in the market.

Every year there is a brand new model of different flagship mobile companies in the market. Smartphones now serve the purpose of a personal computer in our hands. Each year there are quite a lot of hardware and software improvements, and I delightfully delve into the offerings.

I have used smartphones from brands such as Compaq, Blackberry, Sony, HTC, and Samsung, and of course Apple. From a general perspective all phones serve similar purposes, but these vary significantly in terms of usability, convenience and features.

Samsung Galaxy and Apple iPhone series are the two most popular smartphone brands in the market today. The competition is intense amongst these two brands, and each year the rivalry gets even tougher with technological advancement.

Girl using iPhoneI personally have been a fan of Apple iPhones for a few years. This brand has been delivering flagship devices in the smartphone market. To me iPhones are a notch ahead of every other company. The ios operating system that iPhones use is much enriched and user-friendly. The operating system is updated in a span of a year and adds many useful utilities to the phone.

The best thing about iPhones is that the ios is Apple’s own. Therefore, the phones are capable of running all the features the ios comes with. Android phones on the other hand vary a lot in terms of functionality. I used to use Samsung Galaxy before I shifted to Apple iPhone.

There were a lot of things I liked in Samsung Galaxy, but there were a lot of things which I did not like. The disliked features were pretty annoying and disrupted user experience. I was on the look for a better phone. I tried my luck with Sony Xperia. It was rich with features, but was heavy and consumed a lot of battery. I was tired of charging the phone twice daily. Furthermore, I experienced the performance degradation.

Now I’m comfortably using the iPhone. I like everything about the phone and cannot find a major flaw. The design of the phone is smart and classy. It is not too big, neither is it too small. It is easy to hold and fits into the pocket comfortably. The layout of the home screen is meaningful and easy to use. The Apple store is an excellent place to find the desired apps.

It has one significant advantage over the Google store, as the apps found in the store are built specifically for iPhones. This is not the case with the Google play store. Due to this, the security of iPhones are much tighter than android phones. There is also a huge library of music owned by Apple. Once you subscribe to the music service, then you really do not need to look anywhere else for your favorite genre of music.

Apple is well known for producing the high-quality music player, the iPod, for years. All the functionalities of iPods are available in iPhones and there is more to it. Samsung Galaxy or any other phones never had this feature. Another important aspect of iPhone is its battery backup. Although the first generations of iPhone were not renowned for battery backup, recent phones are an alternate to that. Now you can go easy with charging.

On a consumer sense, the iPhone is like a must have for most people. It is an indispensable part of my life. I absolutely love my phone and a ‘big up’ to Apple for making iPhones.
