For the most part, artificial intelligence can replace those professions that employ predominantly female employees. This is stated in a study published by Revelio Labs, a labor market research company.
It notes that in human society there are prejudices regarding what gender a person must be in order to hold a particular position. For example, the duties of a secretary, administrator or cashier are traditionally performed by women. Accordingly, since AI threatens to replace people in these professions, it will also be predominantly women who will lose their jobs.
The study highlights the need for training programs for women in new professions to help them stay in the labor market. One of its authors, economist Hakki Ozdenoren, emphasizes that such a move will allow both to take advantage of advances in the field of artificial intelligence, and not refuse to hire people with certain experience and expertise.
IBM recently reduced the number of administrative jobs (such as HR) that could easily be replaced by AI. It is assumed that in five years up to 30% of the jobs of this kind in this firm will cease to exist.
