As computers get smarter, positions have completely disappeared from the job market. There are no longer switchboard operators, for example, even though this used to be a common job when telephones first became widespread.
Not all jobs are equally threatened by artificial intelligence (AI). A recent analysis from the Brookings Institution found that AI may have a much lesser impact on lower-paid service jobs.
In fact, workers with bachelor’s degrees are more than five times more likely to be threatened by AI than workers with just a high school diploma.
For its analysis, the Brookings Institution looked at scores that indicate how exposed a job is to artificial intelligence applications in the near future, compared to the average job.
So, jobs with AI exposure scores of less than zero are less threatened by AI than the average job, while jobs with scores of more than zero are more threatened than average.
Following is a look at the positions that the institution found have the lowest artificial intelligence exposure scores, making them least vulnerable to AI. Some of these jobs may not surprise you, while others may be a shock.
