Half of the current jobs will be taken over by AI within 15 years, one of China's leading AI experts has warned.
Kai-fu Lee, the author of the best-selling book AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley and the New World Order, told Dailymail.com that the world of employment was facing a crisis – related to that of farmers during the industrial revolution. & # 39;
& # 39; People are not really aware of the effect that AI will have on their work & he said.
Lee, who is a VC in China and once led Google in the region, has more than 30 years of experience in AI.
He is ready to repeat his opinion on a Scott Pelley report on AI in the next 60-minute edition, Sunday, January 13 at 7:00 PM, ET / PT on CBS.
He believes it is imperative to warn & # 39; people that displacement is coming and to tell them how to start retraining & # 39 ;.
Fortunately, he said that everything is not lost for humanity.
& # 39; AI is powerful and customizable, but it cannot do everything that people do. & # 39;
Lee believes that AI cannot make, conceptualize or execute complex strategic planning, or perform complex work that requires accurate hand-eye coordination.
He also says that it is bad to deal with unknown and unstructured spaces.
Crucially, he says that AI cannot communicate with people & # 39; exactly like people & # 39 ;, with empathy, human-human connection and compassion.
