Is Your Job Still Safe?

It was recently suggested that artificial intelligence (AI) could replace community engagement people, like AI is predicted to replace 375 million jobs globally by 2050. It won’t. AI will have, and is having, a major effect on data driven and technical fields, but when it comes to context, nuance, emotion and ethical judgement – not so much. As much of a sea change as AI is destined to be, your job’s probably safe.
