I'm an AI expert – mark my words, robots are coming for your jobs RIGHT NOW & it's already too late | The Sun

ARTIFICIAL intelligence is already smart enough to take over people's job – and many people will find themselves unemployed as their jobs are eliminated, a top AI expert has warned.

Developments in artificial intelligence are rapidly advancing – with fears growing for the future of the world's workforce as many roles may be replaced with robots or AI programmes.

With the chatbot ChatGPT being able to write like a human, experts have warned white-collar jobs will be the first to face the axe.

The mind-blowing app can write, read and solve complex puzzles – while other similar AI programmes create incredibly realistic images, videos and even voices.

So is there anything we can do to stop the AI from replacing you at your work?

AI expert Lisa Palmer foresees jobs are already facing the axe – with many roles simply ceasing to exist in the future.

She warned it's already too late for some jobs – and people should quickly consider reskilling to find new roles in a world pos-AI.

She told The Sun Online: "Is it possible for roles to be replaced? Absolutely is possible.

"What we’re seeing happen right now is a replacement of tasks inside of existing positions versus a complete- 'let’s replace an entire copywriter,' for example.

"What I envision happening is that roles, as they exist today, will no longer exist.

"However, a new version of these roles that demonstrates a partnership between AI and humans is going to create an entirely new hub of positions.

"We're going to see some roles that will no longer exist in the way they exist today but we're going to see the creation of combined roles between AI and humanity and completely new roles that we hadn’t previously anticipated like prompt engineers that didn't exist before generative AI becoming widespread.

"If you're someone who wants to stay in the exact role you are today with no alterations to what you do that is going to be a very difficult reality for people moving forward."

The AI analyst argues that the wide use of the internet had also sparked concerns about people's jobs at the time but the result was actually the creation of more positions.

And while the public was worried about blue-collared jobs it was proven that it is incredibly difficult to replace manual labour-indicating that desk-based jobs are more at risk.

Palmer explains that future roles will see AI and humans working together in a "powerful" combination of technology and the "creativity and collaborative spirit of humans."

She added: "I do think some roles will become obsolete. If you think about telephone operators who manually cross-connected the numbers- those roles no longer exist, they have been replaced by technology.

"I have no doubt we're going to have some positions to be eliminated.

"I think it will take longer for some roles while others will go away quicker."

As to what types of professions are at risk of being eliminated, Palmer advises workers to keep an open mind to new variations of your role.

She said: "If you break down your tasks of the day and ask yourself how many of them could be arguably heavily augmented or replaced by AI. 

"If you think about the job you have and how much it can be replaced that will give you a fast determination of whether your job will be replaced sooner or later.

"Really getting truthful with ourselves and how much can be heavily altered or replaced, that will tell you 'Do I need to focus really quickly on reskilling myself?'

"I think everybody needs to have a serious conversation about what they do and how much of it can be replaced by AI.

"It's important to prepare our workforce to move into the new phase in the most graceful way."

Lisa predicts that AI is set to become a big part of our everyday lives especially since regulations and legal aspects are coming into place.

As an example, she notes that Google might have been the primary search engine for users till now but she foresees "smaller players shifting the landscape" in the near future bringing "more niche applications and more exciting opportunities to the table."

She explained how most people use AI on a daily basis and don't even realise as AI technology is used when shopping online on Amazon, using Siri and even in the automated braking system in our cars.

She said: "Everywhere we go most people are interacting with AI in a myriad of ways- in some locations there is a widespread use of video and AI is being used to look for worrisome behaviours in people and body language so we may not even know the AI we are being exposed to so it is embedded in our lives already."

While Lisa says she is fascinated by the developments in AI technology she raises concerns AI can be used in a negative way- especially when it comes to AI-generated photos and videos.

She said: "The ability to clone an individual person's voice is so impressive today through AI which is quite literally getting better and better every day that there are already deep fakes that are so good that it takes a computer to be able to tell that another computer has created a fake.

"There's no way for a human to tell the difference.

"The quality of the level of these deep fakes makes them quite dangerous for the average public.

"Imagine you answer a phone call and you believe you speak to a family member- you would be very open to giving them access to whatever information they're asking because you genuinely believe you're talking to a family member.

"This capability has a danger and a downside to it so we need to make sure the public is aware this technology exists and that they need to really be careful in their communications."
