In the past few years, there’s been a lot of talk about how artificial intelligence (AI) is going to change the workplace. With all the advances in AI technology, it’s only natural to wonder which jobs will be replaced by robots and which jobs will be safe from automation.
However, there are some limitations to what AI can do. Here are five jobs that AI will never be able to replace:
1. Jobs that require human interaction
There are some jobs that just can’t be done without human interaction. For example, jobs like teaching, nursing and therapy all require a human touch. And while there have been some attempts to create robots that can interact with humans, they’re just not as good as the real thing.
2. Jobs that require creativity
Jobs that require creativity and imagination are also safe from AI. So far, robots have not been able to replicate the human capacity for creativity. This means jobs like marketing, advertising, and design are all safe from automation.
3. Jobs that require emotional intelligence
Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage emotions. It’s an important quality for jobs like social work, human resources, and customer service. And while AI is getting better at understanding and responding to human emotions, it’s not quite there yet.
4. Jobs that require physical labor
There are some jobs that just can’t be done by robots because they require physical labor. For example, jobs like construction, farming, and plumbing all require humans to do the work. And while there have been some attempts to create robots that can do physical labor, they’re not as strong or as dexterous as humans.
5. Jobs that require common sense
Common sense is the ability to understand and apply knowledge in a way that’s appropriate for the situation. It’s an important quality for jobs like medicine, law, and politics. And while AI is getting better at understanding and applying knowledge, it’s not quite there yet when it comes to common sense.
