Over the next three years, as many as 120 million workers from the world's 12 largest economies may need to be retrained because of advances in artificial intelligence and intelligent automation, according to a study released Friday by IBM's Institute for Business Value.

  1. Lucky for me I'm looking to change careers anyways and looking to study to stay ontop of it the best i can. Only 29 but everything's changed so much.

  2. This is a PR article for IBM. They presented the problem, and are now selling the solution. I don't know how much of it is true, but IBM is the one presenting all the info here. Reddit is so susceptible to these kinds of articles it's insane, but they read like an equation, it's not hard to identify. They start by stating a problem claimed by the company: "IBM says 120 million workers will need to be retrained soon." Then they include taking points from other "authority" figures, like a random quote taken out of context from a professor somewhere or Elon Musk: "Many jobs will be pointless, Elon said." Then they go back to the client. What do you know, IBM already has a solution to this problem they just told us about: "One way companies can keep up, according to IBM: Use AI to discover what skills are already available throughout their organization and share that info with employees to drive a culture of 'continuous learning.'” IBM is currently struggling to monetize their AI projects and are obviously pushing to create more demand.
