A.I will take certain jobs – Software Developer cautions

Software Developer Francis Aweenagua has warned that the exponential growth and complexity of Artificial Intelligence (AI) mean that certain jobs will be lost. Mr. Aweenagua made these comments when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Tuesday, December 26, 2023.

He was speaking about the growth of technology and its impact on work and productivity with the CEO of Norgence Academy, Albert Naa.

“I believe AI would take certain jobs. There are some jobs that would certainly be lost to AI. For instance, if your work is to do a lot of secretarial stuff, I mean, writing minutes at meetings and stuff like that, AI has already started doing that work. If your work is to summarize documents, if your work is to balance books and all that, AI is now doing that,” he argued.

To avoid becoming redundant, Mr. Aweenagua urged people whose tasks could be easily taken over by AI to train themselves to become conversant with the way the technology works so that they do not lose their jobs.

“As someone whose job is to do such things, you should learn to use AI for such work. I mean, AI is not perfect, and as we said, context is important, and AI is mostly trained on data from outside Africa. While there is local data being used, it is small, and as we said, AI requires a lot of data to improve it. If you use AI, for example, to transcribe, it can make mistakes because there are certain things that you would mention that the AI would not be able to pick up, so you should be able to fill those gaps,” he said.

The CEO of Norgence Academy, guest host of the Day Break Upper East Show, agreed with the sentiments of Mr. Aweenagua and explained that for secretarial jobs, software applications like the latest version of Microsoft Teams have taken up secretarial tasks, while internet browsers like Microsoft Edge “are crunching and analyzing PDFs.”
