These jobs are safe from the AI revolution — for now Jobs involving manual or outdoor labor or specialized knowledge are less likely to be replaced by AI-informed automation

According to a recent report by Goldman Sachs, the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies on the job market varies across professions. While AI has the potential to automate certain tasks, it is more likely to complement human workers in most industries. The report found that on average, a quarter to one-half of daily tasks in a given job was suitable for automation, leaving a significant amount of work for humans. 

Industries with less exposure to AI-driven automation tend to involve manual or outdoor work, or specialized knowledge, such as cleaning, installation, maintenance, repair, construction and extraction, production, and transportation moving. Health care practitioners and support staff, farming, forestry, personal care, and protective services were found to have less than one-quarter of their tasks suitable for automation. 

On the other hand, the legal field and office and administrative support have about one-third of their tasks replaceable by AI but still have more than half of their tasks as complemental. While some jobs may be replaced by AI tools, the increased productivity could create new types of jobs. AI can also increase the productivity of workers in creative fields, such as product marketing, by providing intelligent automation tools for writing, summarization, research, education, and learning.
