Everyone is worried about losing their job to machines. You may have heard of the robots that replaced burger flippers in California. But are all of our jobs really at risk?
While some jobs will be lost to Artificial Intelligence (AI), others will be created by it. A statistics evaluation published last month from the United States Department of Labor ranked software developers on the projected “Occupations with the most job growth” for 2024. The employment count of software developers in the US is predicted to increase by 18.8%. The median annual wage in 2016 for this occupation was $100,080.
But you don’t need to join a coding agency to be a coder. Odds are, as technology progresses, you’ll have to incorporate coding as part of your job.
Luckily, learning to code doesn’t mean you have to go back to university for 4 years. Online learning makes programming easy to learn from home. As we embrace that we’ll have to learn new skills to keep up with technology, we’ll be able to work with innovation rather than against it to make life more stable and efficient. 👍
