Job Roles That Will Thrive In The Age Of AI

Job roles for the Age of AI

Artificial Intelligence is no longer the stuff of fantasy and Hollywood movies. Advances in technology have been made at break-neck speed and AI-powered devices are now common in both business and society. In this new, age of AI, the roles performed by humans will adapt accordingly, with some jobs rising to the fore more than others.

However, it is much more likely that the intervention of humans will simply adapt to work in tandem with these advancements in technology. Below mentioned are the job roles that will thrive in the age of AI:

1) STEM Educators

What is the origin of these incredible advancements in technology, including AI and machine learning? Human curiosity and ingenuity. And it manifests in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

This increasingly vital branch of human learning will continue to gather momentum and will require educators, research assistants, developers, and any other number of roles to facilitate its growth.

2) IT Analysts

A simple question: as all of these technologies continue to grow in modern life, who will be responsible for overseeing its implementation, integration, automation, maintenance, development, and suitability for the role at hand? The answer is simple.

4) Machine Learning Engineer

This type of job involves designing and developing learning systems, running tests and experiments, and implementing various algorithms. It’s a job that will offer many opportunities in the future and it will allow people to work on and develop amazing new ways to use AI and machine learning.

5) Analytics Job Roles

These jobs will be super useful in the future, maybe even more so than they are now. The AI will gather huge amounts of data and there will be a need for expert analysts to manage and analyze that data.

6) Managers

8) Medical Professionals

Technology is already assisting us in incredible ways, and AI is taking us to greater heights in areas such as operational procedures and prosthetics.

However, the requirement for medical professionals will continue to grow in the age of AI. And the care of humans cannot solely be left to robots either, for again the emotional intelligence will be missing to truly assess what our needs are.

9) Teachers

Many assume that teacher will be one of the first roles to disappear with the advancement of AI technology, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. After all, how do advancements in technology actually happen without continued learning, and therefore teaching?

Teachers are the only ones capable of combining knowledge and human intelligence in order to deliver learning outcomes which truly inspire students. Humans cannot be replaced, at least for the foreseeable future.

10) Environmental Workers

Technology should and will greatly assist us in our fight to curb the destruction of our own planet, and indeed as many jobs do become replaced by technology, that will leave more of us free to pursue roles that focus solely on the protection of our planet.

It is undoubtedly true that many of the next generations will seek roles which contribute to environmental protection and the fight against unhealthy practises.

11) Psychiatrists

Psychiatry is one of the fastest growing branch of healthcare in early twenty-first century. The struggle to adapt and cope with the evolving pressures of modern life is increasing the need for human interaction and human understanding will likely grow.

12) Social Service Positions

As long as there are people there will be social problems. Although robots and AI will assist in the carrying out of social service tasks, the human interventional aspect of proceedings can never be replaced.


AI is not a threat to humans, but will simply facilitate the ability to do more, understand more, and potentially work less. In the future, there will be jobs that are not yet been known, but the above-listed job roles will be crucial.
