SYDNEY, Nov. 2, 2018 /CNW/ -- The increasing adoption of AI technology among Australian businesses is expected to disrupt the country's labor market across industries such as agriculture, automotive, banking/finance, education, healthcare, ICT, and legal services.
"AI technology is disrupting and shifting the global labor ecosystem in terms of job shift, skills shift and work engagement trends. We predict more than 40% high-routine and low-skilled tasks to be automated by 2025-2030," said Mr. Vijay R Rao, Research Director Mobility, Asia-Pacific, Frost & Sullivan.
Rising implementation of chatbots and AI results in increase in demand for jobs involving creativity and of artisanal value. Furthermore, it is likely for hybrid work environment to emerge, where machines handle tedious tasks and leave high-skill functions for humans.
"Ultimately, AI implementation is set to complement human jobs, not eliminate them. By 2036, it is likely that physical jobs and routine jobs will only comprise 22% and 17% respectively, whereas a majority at 61% will be knowledge-based jobs," added Rao.
