Google's Former Exec Says 40 Percent Of Human Will Be Replace With AI In 15 Years

AI is predicted to replace 40% of jobs in the next 15 years, says former Google executive Kai-Fu Lee.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has grown leaps and bounds over the past few decades, and the risk of AI replacing humans in the labor force has also rapidly increased. Undoubtedly, humanity is now accelerating into a future in which AI will take jobs from human workers.

Recently, a Chinese venture capitalist and artificial intelligence expert Kai-Fu Lee told CBS's 60 Minutes he believed that 40% of the world's jobs will be replaced by the artificial intelligence.


Answered Lee when asked about his thoughts on the future of artificial intelligence:


While the development of new technology always affects the interests of the labor force in some sectors, it doesn't mean that this period would be the end to the need for these labor, especially for physical labor. Additionally, the fact that some forms of labor become obsolete or inadequate will also open people to the new opportunities which were created by the new industries technology.

The author of  "AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order," the best-selling book, also mentioned in his writings that the AI shift is in fact radically different in many ways.

As we go into this artificial intelligence revolution, the automation is going to take over the future of industries. More concretely, AI will transform the role of the human being and create new industries, an industry with high or even fully automation, explained Lee in an interview with Furutism.

Look ahead to the future, the AI expert predicted that 40% of the jobs in the world will be rapidly displaced by artificial intelligence, especially the industry of steam engine. Lee said in CBS 60 minutes:
