The world’s most famous expert on artificial intelligence says that 40 percent of the world’s jobs could be done by machines in as soon as 15 years.
Kai-Fu Lee of China says artificial intelligence will increasingly replace repetitive jobs -- not just blue-collar jobs, but white-collar jobs as well. For example, pretty much anyone who drives for a living will probably be out of a job.
Lee went so far as to say artificial intelligence is going to change the world more than anything in the history of mankind -- even more than electricity. (Entrepreneur)
