as evidenced by drastic developments in ai...change is underway. "a perfect storm of business model changein all industries, resulting in major disruptions to labor markets." that is what's expectedin the near future... according to the world economic forum's report on the future of jobs.how so and what needs to be done to better prepare ourselves for this rapid change?our news feature tonight... with kwon jang-ho. "siri, remind me to pick up my dry cleaningafter work today. siri can be a useful tool, though it's notreally ready to replace the role of a human personal assistant yet. but that's where thetechnology is heading." at the world economic forum in davos lastweek, stuart russell, a leading expert in

computer science, suggested that in the future,artificial intelligence would become the ideal personal assistant, perform better than humans,and be available to all. "we're talking about a system which is thereon your shoulder and can provide advice, and can help you navigate the complicated world." but perhaps that future is already here.a study last year found that between 2001 and 2013, personal assistant jobs in the u.k.had fallen by 45-percent. other occupations such as library assistantsand travel agents also saw huge declines. the report concluded that the losses weremainly among jobs where productivity had been greatly improved by technology.

"jobs which are standardized, repetitive,and involve patterns, are jobs that will be taken over by artificial intelligence androbots. for instance, in the u.s., 75-percent of wall street trading is being made by computers.even in journalism, sports and finance news reports can be produced by ai autonomously." researchers at the university of oxford in2013 said that 47-percent of jobs in the u.s. could potentially be done solely by machineswithin 10-20 years. the study also said that any job that involveslittle social intelligence, creativity, and perception is at risk.further studies showed that korea is at a higher risk of losing jobs, as it has beenestimated that 63-percent of the country's

workforce could be computerized. "our research found that it is a very riskysituation, far more so than that in the u.s. and other developed countries. the reasonis because the ratio of korean jobs that involve simple manual skills or office administrationwork is higher than other places." but the research paper offers hope in thatnew fields will open up, especially in it and software development.the social business networking site linkedin put together a list of the top 10 job-titlesthat barely existed before 2008. 8 out of 10 were from digital industries,with ios and android software developers coming out on top.

academics and business leaders agree thatthe changing nature of the job market in general cannot be stopped and that the next task inhand is for society to adapt to such changes. [14:50]"those already working will need to go through a re-education. moreover, they need to studynew fields in order to survive, and for that, universities and the government need to providerelated courses or financial support." "i think re-training is the responsibilityfor the corporation. if we know the future, and i think we are almost crystal clear thatwe know the future, that's what we're talking about, then we have to start retraining thepeople. and also we have to work with the government to really create the future talentto be more adaptive to the future trend."

"the fourth industrial revolution is coming.it should make life a little easier, better, more productive. but for some of us, thatmight not happen if jobs and our livelihoods become collateral damage. to prepare for it,more steps need to be taken by governments, businesses and, of course, ourselves.kwon jang-ho, arirang news."
