Forty percent of the world’s jobs could be done by machines as soon as 15 years from now, one of the world’s foremost experts on artificial intelligence, venture capitalist Kai-Fu Lee, tells Scott Pelley on the coming edition of "60 Minutes."
What he's saying: "AI will increasingly replace repetitive jobs, not just for blue collar work, but a lot of white collar work. ... Chauffeurs, truck drivers — anyone who does driving for a living — their jobs will be disrupted ... in the 15- to 25-year time frame."
"Many jobs that seem a little bit complex — chef, waiter, a lot of things — will [also] become automated," Lee continues.
I asked Axios future editor Steve LeVine how we should think about this.
