AI has made the whole world in a dilemma whether it will kill or create jobs. Well, some of the low-skilled jobs are considered to be eliminated whereas some jobs cannot be replaced by AI. Here are some of the jobs that AI is likely to be replacing:
Computer Support Specialists: The companies will replace support specialists with bots and automated machines to have an accurate and quick response to the support of their customers.
Couriers: The courier companies have also started replacing courier people and delivery people with the robots and drones.
Receptionists: Automated phone calls and scheduled systems are going to replace the receptionists soon. The advanced companies have already started the installation of automation and AI within their offices.
