Thank you!

Thank you for using the AI Job Risk calculator! If you would like to share a feedback, please use the Contact Form at the bottom of this page.

To better understand your score, please refer to the FAQ section below. You can always come back to the AI Job Risk Calculator since your score will change over time as AI gets better at performing tasks with each day, and our jobs will evolve to require new skills, mostly related to AI. This is why in 2020, 94% of business leaders reported they expected employees to pick up new skills on the job.

Invest in yourself! If you would like to quickly upskill in AI to differentiate yourself and futureproof your career, visit www.ClassesAI.com

This certificate course has everything you need to quickly catch up on AI, learn unique frameworks to use and manage it in your organization, gain lifetime access to its latest advances, and start having insightful conversations on the subject.

FAQ

Why does the calculator focus on individual tasks and not the overall job?


An AI model is created to perform specific tasks as per its intended use case. For instance, we don't create AI to "do Marketing" but to "profile different types of customers" or "send emails and follow-up". So it is each task that AI replaces. The overall threat to your job, therefore, depends on the share of tasks within that job that AI can reliably replace you with.




Okay, but why those specific six questions in the calculator?


AI can perform tasks better than we can because it is adept at assessing more information quicker and at a lower cost than we can. However, it is more advanced in certain functions than it is in others, and its actual threat to our jobs depends on who has the power to make strategic investment decisions in a company. What limits AI's ability to do our tasks are the human elements of our work: to deal with uncertainty and improvise, to assess subjective information from even unspecified sources, to use emotion or a "gut" feeling, and to prefer having control over important things. However, as AI gets better each day en route to "Singularity", it is a matter of time before it can do the above "human" tasks well enough.




Will the risk score be similar for similar job titles?


Likely not. A common mistake is to assume that a job title has the same role and tasks in all companies. In reality, a "Director of IT" is likely to have very different responsibilities in a start-up or a large corporation, or even among different industries. That is why this risk score relies on your accurate and honest depiction of your job profile, i.e. to what extent are the tasks rule-based, predictable, requiring emotion and critical to the business. Moreover, these opinions can vary in two other ways: First, they can be different for you and your colleagues or employers. Second, our awareness of AI's abilities today may also be different from reality. For example, robot nurses have been deployed in senior care homes in some countries to offer companionship to lonely elders, thereby executing what would normally be perceived as role high in emotion and low in predictable processes. More importantly, AI is advancing in these abilities continuously. So, the risk to a job profile is likely to increase with time.




If that is the case, does that mean all jobs will be eventually replaced by AI?


Jobs evolve with every technological insurgence. For example, we do not have the role of "typists/typewriters" anymore, while the role of marketers has thrived but is very differentiated from what it used to be. AI's impact is likely to evolve today's jobs into one where we move from managing tasks to managing AI solutions doing those tasks.




How can I reduce my risk score and/or keep it low?


AI is advancing in its skills each year, increasing its risk to any job. There are plenty of courses to learn AI. However, if you are not interested in coding or building AI models, and would instead like to learn about AI from a management perspective, you can always check out the certificate course mentioned above at www.ClassesAI.com If your risk score is >40%: This course will help you upskill in AI to quickly adapt to new AI-enabled jobs, or manage AI tools in your current job, once they start managing your current tasks. If your risk score is <40%: This course will train you on how to use and deploy AI in your team effectively, quickly update yourself on everything AI, and stay ahead of AI's advances in your job. We advise you to read the course details first, as it will also help you better understand the key topics to know in AI in order to understand, use and manage it successfully and responsibly.




Does this mean I'll have to learn to code?


Absolutely not. Take the example of Microsoft Office, a technology that was once new but everyone today is expected to know and use at a basic level. That does not mean we have to learn its backend code to use it well! The bulk of AI investments in organizations fail today not because of a lack of people developing good AI solutions, but because others using it (the end users, decision makers and investors of AI) generally do not understand how/when to use it well. Most of us do not need to learn to code but need to learn about AI well enough to understand:
- how different AI techniques do what they do
- when to use AI at work
- qualify which AI solution is more suited to our needs, and what it will need
- how to get the team, data and process ready to use AI, and how to manage them
- how to use AI successfully and responsibly
- move from being replaceable by AI to managing it when it is ready to take over our tasks You can learn these skills on managing AI at www.ClassesAI.com
