Artificial Intelligence Jobs: 2.3 Million New Jobs By 2020

Research firm Gartner said 2.3 million new jobs will be created by 2020 by AI. By 2022, 1 in 5 workers will rely on AI to do their job. Instead of replacing these professionals, AI will assist them. AI will increase productivity. AI augmentation will generate $2.9 trillion in business value in 2021.

Research firm Gartner said more jobs will be created than lost. The firm says 1.8 million jobs will be eliminated by 2020, but 2.3 million new jobs will be created by then.  AI will become a positive job motivator. The number of jobs affected by AI will vary by industry; through 2019, healthcare, the public sector and education will see continuously growing job demand while manufacturing will be hit the hardest. Starting in 2020, AI-related job creation will cross into positive territory, reaching two million net-new jobs in 2025, Gartner said in a release.

AI is expected to replace low-level, routine work, but it will also play a role in higher-level jobs.
