Among the non-ending topics nowadays is the fear of Artificial Intelligence replacing human beings at some specific work.
This thread is not about to continue the debate, but to give those afraid among us some relief.
I saw a FB post where someone is discussing the consistency of Amazon Inc due to their increase in their employees every year!
The part that got my attention is the number of employees from 2002 to 2018
Number of Amazon employees:
Though there are little differences to the stats available on Google, the above details is still reliable!
With how technology is evolving, one would have expect their employees to start reducing while they use automation and AI to replace a lot of humans. But it seems this is not happening soon, maybe when they release number of employees in 2019 we can then conclude on this.
This shows that as much as AI will replace some humans, many humans will forever be irreplaceable, even if this humans don't evolve in their skills as technology evolve.
I will research on number of employees in Elon Musk companies to put a full stop on this fear of AI!
What's your view about the AI vs Human trend?
