Are we at risk of losing our jobs to artificial intelligence? This burning question is on everyone’s mind

As artificial intelligence rapidly develops, it raises questions about the future of work, processes, and ethics. We see AI in movies and literature, but its presence in our daily lives is becoming increasingly palpable. What impact will it have, and what will it replace or change?

At the Adria Summit, renowned experts in the field tackled these questions head-on during eight panel discussions. From the influence of AI on our lives to the future of cryptocurrencies, fintech, and Web 3.0, the summit explored all the crucial topics within the digital ecosystem. The discussions shed light on the power of AI and how it can help us streamline tasks and increase efficiency. But the most crucial takeaway was that we must embrace AI and its potential and be prepared to learn and adapt. The question that comes to mind for all of us when artificial intelligence is mentioned is: Will I lose my job?

“You won’t lose your job because of AI unless you’re not willing to learn. Artificial intelligence can help you shorten the time for tasks that currently take up a lot of your time, but only if you’re willing to develop,” says Ivanka Novakovic, Chief HR Officer at Delta Holding.

“Just search on the internet how many people lost their jobs at the moment when horses were replaced by cars, how many thousands of jobs disappeared, and how many millions of jobs emerged. So, yes, people will lose their jobs because of artificial intelligence, but 30 times more jobs will emerge precisely because of artificial intelligence,” concluded Dejan Cvetković, CTO of Microsoft Development Center in Serbia. “I don’t want you to be relaxed. I want you to understand the power of artificial intelligence and embrace it, because we all see its results, especially in the last few months,” he added.

“Now we’re at a stage where we’re learning to communicate with machines, and they’re communicating with us. Until yesterday, if you wanted a machine to do something for you, you had to type code in a programming language, while today anyone can have interaction with a machine…” emphasizes Milan Gospic, Director of Microsoft in Serbia.

“Be prepared to learn and get as much relevant data about artificial intelligence as possible, because it really is the topic of the future,” concludes Gospic at the end.
