For the latter, we have already seen major changes, and many think there may be an increased risk of fewer jobs in certain industries in the future, making automation seem threatening.
This must not necessarily be true. We need someone to develop, install, instruct and build these robots. This is where engineers come in, as well as workers being replaced with robots.
What is artificial intelligence?
In short, artificial intelligence is "intelligent" computer systems capable of solving problems, as well as learning from their own mistakes and experiences. Such computer systems are developed using theoretical and experimental data tools to study intelligent behaviour. Based on the results, we develop intelligent computer systems.
Another aspect of artificial intelligence is that we create algorithms to sort large amounts of data. Examples may be the algorithms of search engines like those used by Google. Search engines sort a wealth of information, to give the user a match for the keyword he or she has entered.
Today, there is great emphasis on computer systems and artificial intelligence, as we believe artificial intelligence is a major part of our future. So, doubtless there will be an increasing need for engineers in this field.
Combining artificial and human intelligence
Even though the surgeon's hands can be replaced with a machine, we still need someone with the knowledge of a surgeon to instruct a robot to perform the right job. We have already seen examples where the surgeon himself controls the robot from a computer. Just watch this video...
Engineers in the field of artificial intelligence
In other words, we need to combine artificial intelligence with human intelligence for the job to be performed properly. This means that in the future, there will be an increasing need for engineers educated in artificial intelligence. As an engineer in this field, you will be one of those who can help create our future. If you wish to learn more about this subject, you should study computer technology, robotics and cybernetics, computer science, or other areas related to data and information technology.
