Tech Futurist Says AI Will Change How We Work

However, he doesn't believe there will be significant job losses

Long a futuristic aspiration, artificial intelligence (AI) has swept into human life and work at breakneck speed, making rapid gains in accuracy and efficacy, generating excitement and redefining what's possible while producing significant anxiety about job security and the future of work.

Zach Kass, a tech futurist who has advised major companies and governments and served as head of go-to-market at ChatGPT parent OpenAI, says we're just scratching the surface of AI's capabilities, and the rapid advances we've seen will likely continue. Still, we shouldn't be afraid of a future in which AI is ubiquitous. Jobs will change significantly, Kass said, conceding that will be difficult for many people, but work will be improved in the long run.

"The nature of work and the definition of work is going to change, and my advice to most people is to not anchor their identities to their jobs," Kass said. "I don't think that we're going to see net job reduction. More likely, what we're going to see is a new type of job emerge, and I don't know what exactly it will be like, but I think it will be far more human in many respects and far less computational."
