Many workers are at risk of being replaced by artificial intelligence. The Brookings Institution recently conducted an analysis across all economic sectors to determine which occupations are the most, and least, likely to be affected by artificial intelligence (AI).
Specialists compiled scores that show how exposed a job is to AI applications in the near future, when compared to the average job. So, the jobs with negative AI exposure scores are less threatened by the rise of robots than the average job, and jobs with positive scores — like the jobs found in this article — are more threatened on average.
Take a look at the jobs that are most likely to be affected by artificial intelligence!
1. Market research analysts and marketing specialists
- Artificial intelligence exposure score: 3.03
Even if these jobs are being threatened by artificial intelligence, the Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts a 20% growth in employment from 2018 to 2028. Market research analysts and marketing specialists analyze market conditions for the potential sales of new products and services and they are paid a median of $63,120 per year or $30.35 per hour, according to the BLS.
- Artificial intelligence exposure score: 3.14
This job involves studying how matter and energy interact. You can make huge changes in areas like scientific research, electronics, communications and medical technology. However, the years spent earning a doctorate could be worth it, because physicists make a median yearly salary of nearly $120,000.
