Machines Could Replace 800 Million Human Jobs By 2030

By Carlos Onyango / November 7, 2019 | 12:50 am




Humans should brace themselves adequately when it comes to employment or else machines would take over 800 million jobs by the year 2030.

Machines were made and are still being made by humans, who have no idea that they are becoming useless with time as the machines are replacing them in the job markets.

Robots are taking over human jobs at a very fast rate and its high time humans change their education(teaching) styles as Alibaba Founder, Jack Ma suggests.

“Education is a big challenge now. If we do not change the way we teach,30 years later we will be in trouble,” Jack Ma opines.

Well, as the common mantra goes, “if you do not, the change will change you”, then we have no choice but change to become better than robots and machines.

It is quite obvious that most employers prefer using or hiring machines to humans.

Machines can be programmed to embrace change, they are getting smarter with time and they are the reason why some employees are laid off day in day out.

Machines can do things faster, produce high yields within short periods and produce quality goods and services as opposed to humans.

Humans can be very irritating, demanding and annoying at the same time; they can demand for high wages even after doing unreasonable tasks; they are emotional and get pissed by even the slightest thing; they are judgmental; they get exhausted fast; they go on holidays; they want promotions; they can go on strike at any time. But we are humans, we can’t change that.

With all the qualities we have as humans, we should not allow these machines to take over our jobs while we sit back comfortably and watch.

Jack Ma suggests that we should look at our education system and change the modes of teaching. We should dump our ordinary teaching styles and adopt new and advanced styles.

“The way we teach; the things we teach are things that were taught for the past 200 years. We cannot teach our kids to compete with these machines as they are smarter.”

Jack Ma says that we have to teach unique things so that machines can never catch up with us.

“Values, believing, independent thinking, teamwork, care for others…everything we teach our kids should be different from what the machines are doing. If the machines can do better, then we have to think again about our teaching.”

Jack Ma suggests that activities like sports, music and unique skills should be supported instead of teaching kids the basic knowledge that even machines have.

Let us use machines but do whatever we can to retain our jobs.
