Young Zhao: "AI will remove many jobs"
The Opus.Pro founder and CEO says that artificial general intelligence will produce a generational economic shift.
The rise of artificial general intelligence holds an immense potential to disrupt the existing workforce while simultaneously creating new employment opportunities, said Opus.Pro founder and CEO Young Zhao. "AGI will definitely remove many jobs... but there will be a lot more new jobs created after each round of industrial revolutions."
AGI will primarily impact white-collar jobs in the short term, transforming the administrative and analytical economic landscape. As multi-modal AGI intertwines with robotics, its impact on blue-collar jobs will inevitably follow. Zhao believes this will happen over the next decade.
Rather than viewing AGI as a threat, he says, we should see AI as a catalyst for societal progress, bringing along new jobs that we're only beginning to envision.
“There will be a lot more new jobs created after each round of [economic] revolution,” he said. “So I think it's still great for the progress of society, for the improvement of society. We are still figuring out what kind of new jobs are being created.”
