Oh no, those jobs have disappeared…

After reading another of those articles about jobs that will disappear because of AI (be scared!). I decided to list 5 examples of jobs that have disappeared in the past due to technological revolutions; and 5 antical jobs that still remain…

My message here is:

1/ Yes, technology takes away jobs. Those jobs were usually extremely labour intensive and physically painful. I let you decide if you want to call it progression or regression…

2/ Some jobs still remain, you don’t know why… Actually just because we don’t want to let go of them. And we use our dollars to perpetuate those traditions.

So will your job disappear? If people want to maintain it, it won’t. Plus, AI is seriousely not ready to steal the job of a Journalist as I have read latelyon one of those articles.

Disappeared (as far as I know in France)

The 6 rule of AI as per Nadella


# AI shall be designed to assist humanity

# AI shall do dangerous work like mining

# AI shall respect human autonomy

# AI shall be transparent

# AI shall be intelligible 

>”We want not just intelligent machines but intelligible machines,” says Nadella. “People should have an understanding of how the technology sees and analyses the world”.

# AI shall maximize efficiencies without destroying the dignity of people.

> “We need broader, deeper, and more diverse engagement of population .


25 lessons from Jack Welch

A heavy reporting system can suffocate any company by propaging the feeling that the teams are not trusted and the senior management is trying to fingerpoint.

How to avoid that: empowering, being reactive and solution driven! Teams are just the most important element of any companies.
