Artificial intelligence will be used to take over our jobs if our jobs involve rules, pattern recognition, non-cognitive interpretation, and repeatable tasks. While machine learning is still in its infancy, it will not be long before artificial intelligence will become the mainstream. It will only be a matter of time for this to occur.
Let me illustrate with two examples:
Researchers have unsuccessfully tried to use artificial intelligence to help us pick fruit. There are so many variables for machine coding and learning to take place that most attempts to automate fruit-picking using artificial intelligence have been failures. Yet time will tell whether they will ultimately be successful in programming machines to recognize ripe fruits and the position of these ripe fruits on the branches.
