Is software not eating the world, but its programmers?

The revolution eats its own children. This saying, based on a passage in Georg Büchner's drama "Danton's Death", currently seems to apply to the world of technology. Since the emergence of ChatGPT, there has been a lot of discussion about whether, and if so, which professional groups might have to retrain. Even programmers, the spiritual fathers of generative AI, do not seem to be spared. But is this really true? Here we analyze what speaks for and against it.


These new professions are created by Artificial Intelligence

Where there is shadow, there must also be light. Just as you can turn this well-known adage around, you should also look at the discussion surrounding the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the job market. Following the current discussion, we recently just looked at which professions are potentially at risk from the AI revolution. However, it is often forgotten that such fundamental innovations also create new jobs. After all, who would have thought, for example, that the invention of the car would eventually make the job of professional driver possible? Many former coachmen certainly did not expect to find a new job here at the time. So let's take a look at what options are opening up from today's perspective.


Artificial Intelligence will fundamentally change these occupational fields

In recent months, we have heard a lot about what generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) can currently do and to what extent it will influence our lives. As always since the invention of the steam engine, such revolutionary technological innovations raise the question of which occupations it may replace in the future. It is reasonably certain that activities that involve a high degree of repetitive processes can be automated and thus rationalized more easily than those that have a focus on cognitive and interactive actions. So we too are looking at which occupations fall into this category and will at least change significantly. In a second article, however, we will also take a look at professions that are newly emerging as a result of AI. For both perspectives, we want to be optimistic that AI will create more benefits than harm.
