7 Jobs that will disappear in the next 15 years due to AI

Are your job at risk? Do you think your current job will be taken away by Robot? Let’s find out which all jobs will disappear in the next 12 to 15 years due to technological advancement and Artificial intelligence. 

According to a professor at Oxford University, 47% of total U.S employment is in the high-risk category.

Meaning that associate occupations are potentially automatable.

Occupation Risk Computerization

This means a lot of those jobs will be replaced. And according to McKinsey Global Institute, between 400 and 800 million people will have to find new jobs by 2030.

That is a staggering number. So are your jobs at risk? Or maybe the jobs that are you studying for if you’re going to college.

Are those jobs still gonna be around by the time you graduate?

What are some of the jobs that will disappear? Today we are going to talk about it.

7 Jobs that will disappear in the next 15 years due to AI

#1 Construction workers

Have you seen those robotic bricklayers right? They’re researching and developing those new robots.

Crane operators, bulldozer drivers, you see construction has always been

a very dangerous industry where people get hurt.

A lot of times construction workers, are putting their lives at stake

constructing a building, constructing a new home.

It’s always a very high-risk category. And now with technologies and with AI, a lot of those jobs will be replaced by robots because it’s a very repetitive task.

Not only robots are more precise, but at the same time you would also speed up a lot of construction projects.

Before we required a lot of people to construct a project and you see today it required fewer people, because of AI to do the same project at a faster pace.

#2 Drivers

Now self-driving cars are already the way of the future and of course, Elon Musk is leading the pack.

Now self-driving features are already available on certain cars but they’ll also be commercialized very very soon.

So what am I talking about? What are some of the jobs that are at risk?

Taxi drivers, truck drivers, Uber drivers, lift drivers, very soon all those jobs and all those positions will be replaced by AI.

#3 Fast food workers

Now in the fast food industry, it’s always about lowering expenses and cutting costs. 

Now with AI and robots, you already see in some of these fast food restaurants, comment below if you’ve seen those, they are now installing the kiosk where you, it’s a self-check-out.

You go in and you order the food, and then you just pick it up.

So before, a fast food, a franchise, a restaurant would have this many stations, say 10 stations, now they’re cutting it back.

They require fewer cashiers and you are ordering on your own.

What it means is, the fast food industry is training the consumers, you and I, how to order on our own or very quickly, very soon from our app directly.

We do not have to wait in line. Even at Starbucks you can order and just go pick it up. 

And from then on, that’s the first phase.

The second phase is gonna be the drive-through right? Then you can order and just pick it up directly.

And third, it’s gonna be a kitchen. A lot of chefs, a lot of workers working within the kitchen, those jobs are going to be replaced.

Not only robots are more precise when it comes to cooking, but ’cause consistency is also very very important to the fast food industry.

#4 Farmers

Farmers are being replaced by artificially intelligent robots.

I’m talking about from milking cows to pulling out lettuce.

A family-owned dairy farm in Germany is one of the very first field farms that actually installed a voluntary milking system that allows the cows 

to walk into the machines and the machines will milk the cow at the cow’s leisure.

It is incredible. And according to Morton Farmer, more than one million US farm hands (mumbles) jobs will be replaced by intelligent machines that do everything from weed cabbage patches to picking apples.

#5 Accounting and bookkeeping

Now, this has been around a long time. Companies and entrepreneurs that we use, certain accounting software to run their business, to do our numbers, create financial statements, and all of that, but now we’re talking about a different level of automation.

Even in Japan a lot of the high-level workers are being replaced by computers right?

Because it’s less human error and you can be able to do your financials so much faster.

So bookkeepers, accountants, a lot of that will be replaced by AI.

#6 Waiters and waitress

If you have been to Japan, this is actually quite common in Japan, that they have these self-serving sushi bars.

With only a handful of people running a pretty massive restaurant.

People working in the kitchen, and what happens is you will sit down and you will order from your iPad directly right?

You don’t call a waiter or waitress to order food.

You order directly, The order goes directly to the kitchen, and they have this conveyor belt, right?

Just sends directly the food plate to you, and you take out the plate and it goes, back to the kitchen and they wash the dishes.

And at the end what happens is, when you finish and say hey can I have the check, a waiter or waitress comes in and they’re holding a little machine and they will scan how many plates you have eaten at what price points, and then you pay and that is it.

It is that automated.

#7 Delivery

Now you know that Amazon has invested a huge amount of money in developing drones to deliver packages.

So if you are a prime member that you know, people now we are conditioned.

We want fast delivery. Before, the expectation remember back in the old days?


Two weeks to get here, a week and a half to get here, no.

We want now to get the package get here in two days! Tomorrow right?


And we have these expectations and now consumers are more demanding than ever.

They want it and they want it now. That we don’t wanna wait, that you don’t want to wait.

So a lot of the delivery jobs will be replaced. We’re talking about pizza delivery, and package delivery, because there’s a lot of inefficiency within those industries and being able to deliver packages, deliver food, deliver different items faster and actually cost less money with fewer errors, a lot of those jobs will be replaced because of workers issue, because again union issues, unfortunately.

You can check job at risk by looking at following image.

Over to You

So you see a lot of these jobs, are going to be replaced by AI.

They are what I refer to as low-income jobs right? Commodities, meaning that it’s very easy to find someone to do that job.

There are so many people out there that could do these types of jobs.

That you could get someone, train them up flipping burgers in a very very short period of time.

So when all you know are the skillsets that you have that you bring to the marketplace, they are lower value or it’s a commodity, then it’s very easy to be replaced by AI.

On the other hand, if you have what I call a high-income skill, meaning a skill that you’re delivering a lot of value to a company, you see a company,

a corporation, they are always willing to pay someone to generate more revenue and bring in more customers for them.

That is a very valuable skill and that is a skill that you can make a lot of money with and also that will not be replaced by AI.
