How AI Can Create Jobs

5,354 views

Published on

We forget that when technology destroy, it helps us to create new ones, as long as we remember that the point isn't just cost-reduction, but doing things that were previously impossible! That means both solving hard problems, and pairing technology with people in ways that play to the strengths of each. My keynote at Strata+Hadoop World London, May 2017.

How AI Can Create Jobs

  1. How AI Can Create Jobs Tim O’Reilly O’Reilly Media @timoreilly
  2. “…47 percent of jobs are “at risk” of being automated in the next 20 years.” Carl Frey and Michael Osborne, Oxford University “The Future of Employment: How Susceptible Are Jobs to Computerisation?”
  3. Is there really nothing left for humans to do?
  4. Our global economy has the mistaken idea that the goal of technology is to maximize efficiency and profits, even if that means treating people as a cost to be eliminated.
  5. Increased productivity is the true source of wealth, but when it is used only to drive “shareholder value,” the rest of society suffers.
  6. That’s a problem “The people will rise up before the robots do.” Andy Macafee Co-author, The Second Machine Age Erik Brynjolfsson and Andy Macafee
  7. We’ve seen this happen before

  9. They couldn’t imagine…
  10. And those in power couldn’t imagine The laws of welfare economics assert that when some people are made better off as the result of an economic policy change, the winners must compensate the losers. But as Bill Janeway put it to me in a pungent email, “Unfortunately, the winners rarely do so except as the result of political coercion.”
  11. What is our failure of imagination?
  12. It isn’t technology that wants to eliminate jobs “Technology is the solution to human problems. We won’t run out of work till we run out of problems.” “Technology is the solution to human problems. We won’t run out of work till we run out of problems.” Nick Hanauer

  21. Work on stuff that matters!

  24. AI in healthcare
  25. At the Royal Free Hospital “Within a few weeks of being introduced, nurses who have been using [Deepmind] Streams report that it has been saving them up to two hours every day, which means they can spend more time face-to-face with patients.”
  26. The Law of Conservation of Attractive Profits “When attractive profits disappear at one stage in the value chain because a product becomes modular and commoditized, the opportunity to earn attractive profits with proprietary products will usually emerge at an adjacent stage.” Clayton Christensen
  27. What Becomes Valuable in a Future of AI? “People in the technology community frequently ask me 'how long will it take to replace the Fin operations team with pure AI?’… At Fin, however, our mission is not automation for its own sake. Our guiding principle is providing the best experience for users of Fin…. Technology is clearly part of the equation. But people are also a critical part of the system that results in the best possible customer experience. And the role of technology at Fin is largely to empower our operations team to focus their time and effort on the work that requires decidedly human intelligence, creativity, and empathy.”Sam Lessin, fin.com
