Jobs Safe From Automation - Deepstash

Jobs Safe From Automation

There are 3 categories of work that are unlikely to be automated- 

  1. Surprising work- It involves complex rules, changing environments, unexpected variables. AI and automation really like regularity but not an irregular environment. Example- teaching. 
  2. Social jobs- They involve making people feel things rather than making things. Example- flight attendants, therapists, ministers. 
  3. Scare work- This involves sort of high-stakes situations, rare combinations of skills, or just people who are experts in their fields. Example- 911 operators. 

We should teach people to be more like humans instead of teaching them to be more productive or efficient.
