——Today, artificial intelligence is not as good as you hope and not as bad as you fear, but humanity is accelerating into a future that few can predict.
That’s why so many people are desperate to meet Kai-Fu Lee, the oracle of AI.
——AI will increasingly replace repetitive jobs. Not just for blue-collar work but a lot of white-collar work.
——What sort of jobs would be lost to AI?
——Basically, chauffeurs, truck drivers, anyone who does driving for a living, their jobs will be disrupted more in the 15 to 20-year time frame and many jobs that seem a little bit complex, chef, waiter, a lot of things will become automated.
We’ll have automated stores, automated restaurants, and altogether in 15 years, that’s going to displace about 40 percent of the jobs in the world.
——Forty percent of the jobs in the world will be displaced by technology?
——I would say displaceable.
——What does that do to the fabric of society?
——Well,in some sense,there is the human wisdom that always overcomes these technology revolutions.
The invention of the steam engine,the sewing machine,the electricity,have all displaced jobs.
And we’ve gotten over it.
The challenge of AI is this 40 percent,Whether it is 15 or 25 years, is coming faster than the previous revolutions.
——Do you think people around the world have any idea (of) what’s coming in artificial intelligence?
——I think most people have no idea. And many people have wrong idea.
——But you do believe it’s going to change the world.
——-I believe it’s going to change the world more than anything in the history of mankind,more than electricity.
