While it seems scary, the replacement of human workers with AI is nothing to be scared of. BT will replace some humans with computers, but BT says it will use AI for mundane jobs such as detecting software bugs and fixing them. Just as machines replaced people in plowing farms and assembling widgets in factories, this, too, will lead to the emergence of new advanced jobs for people to take up while computers are in charge of the grunt work.
The AI revolution is not like the industrial or tech revolutions of the past, and governments should be prepared to deal with that reality. If 300M jobs are replaced in the coming decade — as Goldman Sachs predicts —and there's no way to stop it, then our leaders should work to ensure those at the bottom get a piece of the financial boom. AI may very well take away employment, but it shouldn't take away livelihoods and the human experience we all deserve.
