How AI will upset tech and job markets

Ed Burns Ed Burns Profile: Ed Burns


We’ve all heard the scare stories about AI eliminating jobs, but we’ve also heard the Pollyanna voices saying everything will be fine on the jobs front.

The reality may be somewhere in the middle, according to Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry. In a presentation at the AI World Conference & Expo in Boston, held in December, Terry talked about how the risk of people losing their jobs to AI in the short term is very real. Jobs may recover long-term, but people should expect some disruption soon, he said.

He also talked about the likelihood that established tech players like Amazon and Google are not likely be the dominant vendors when it comes to AI. Instead, he said, he expects some new, unknown vendor is likely to innovate.

Listen to this podcast to hear more about Terry’s predictions and how they may play out in the jobs and tech markets.
