AI Creates New Job Opportunities – Pickl

Artificial Intelligence Creates New Job Opportunities: AI will swallow most of the existing jobs but will create many new types of jobs, although of a different kind. You will dismiss it as something cliched only if you refuse to understand the ramifications of this on the ways in which it is going to affect you. Most impacted by this will be the teenagers who are at the cusp of making a professional career choice for themselves.

This happened before. See how web development has evolved over the last two decades. Web development got trivialized and hence democratized, AI is going to go down the same path in the coming decade.

Web development, which is now mocked as ‘not real programming’ has been made so by the likes of Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce, etc. What used to be a programmer’s hard work can now be accomplished by a lay businessperson in a few days.

Similarly, programming languages have evolved a lot. While you would still have a section of professionals that would take pride in saving every bit of memory that a program uses and a number of CPU cycles during execution, languages like Python are deceptively simple and have survived all the programmers’ elitism. As I write this, the TIOBE Index, for May 2021 tells us that Python is staring in the eye of C. This lowers the barriers to learning a programming language. The simplicity of Python has encouraged middle-aged parents and teenage kids to self-learn the language and admire the power of programming.

Likewise, the world of databases has become insanely simple too. A decade ago, one of the ‘tricky’ questions in college campus interviews used to be “How will you explain database to a fifth grader?”. Well, if you asked a kid the same question today, chances are that you would not need to explain.
There is a proliferation of database tools. You are no longer constrained by bare SQL syntax to access relational databases that were hitherto the delight of the ‘professional coders’. The likes of Coda, Airtable, and many other tools have made sure that school kids can comfortably manage and manipulate tabular data.

The world of machine learning too, over the last few years, has witnessed overcrowding of products that are extremely easy to use by non-programmers.
With so much data being generated, there is a need of organizing it. So, there is an army of data visualization products such as Tableau, Power BI, TIBCO Spotfire, Rapidminer, and so on. If you can manage a Cloud provider’s interface, you can perform a great deal of data transformation (an important step for machine learning) within a few clicks. Then, there are automated Machine Learning (AutoML) products, some of them even open-source (e.g. KNIME, that give you a powerful predictive model if you know how to frame a problem technically.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, there is much more that is about to hit the market in the coming years. That is what precisely will make the adoption of ML widespread by the companies. That is what will open newer avenues for your professional choices.

While the computer scientists fraternity will continue to invent and improve programming (newer programming languages) and new paradigms of computing (such as quantum computing), the ‘tech jobs of today’ will see the increasing participation of professionals that work on this no-code or low-code layer to accelerate the application of modern tech into areas such as elementary and higher education, economics, and financial analyses, clinical trials, drug delivery, and pharmaceutical applications, a range of non-profits, politics, environment, sustainable development, and other fields not so well known for tech adoption so far.

So, roll up your sleeves, don’t be paranoid about ML, don’t ignore it as something beyond your capabilities, and embrace as much of it as you can. That will make your choices easier later in your career.

What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as a groundbreaking technology that is shaping the world around us. With its ability to mimic human intelligence and perform complex tasks, AI has become an integral part of various industries, including healthcare, finance, and transportation. In this article, we will explore the concept of Artificial Intelligence, its applications, and its impact on society.
