Artificial intelligence creates as many job opportunities as it disrupts.
The industries that benefit the most from artificial intelligence are those complex and creative industries, including education, science, IT, design, etc. Industries that will be negatively influenced by AI are finance, insurance, retail, construction, public administration, transportation, and manufacturing.
On the one hand, technological advancement creates new employment opportunities by increasing labor productivity, promoting economic growth, and creating new products and markets; on the other hand, artificial intelligence can achieve greater automation and replace some of the human work.

As is vividly portrayed in the cartoon, a yellow robot is grabbing a rice bowl from a worker which writes "jobs" on it, while the worker is panicked and helpless. Under the picture there are some eye-catching words reading that "assistant or opponent", leaving an indelible impression on many people.
Hundreds of years ago, people worried that the industrial revolution would make a large number of unemployment. But history has proved that the new technological upheaval has not led to massive joblessness; rather it has renovated the social division of labor and made the industry more efficient. Therefore, commanding robots to do low-efficiency and low-value-added work, such as dirty, dangerous, and labor-intensive work, is a very practical requirement. On the other hand, as the productivity promotes, many new jobs will be created and people will have more time to do creative work, such as education, culture and art.
Obviously, artificial intelligence and automation are an irresistible trend in social development. As a college student, first of all, being an intellectual, we have an advantage in this new technological upgrading. Secondly, we should always pay attention to the development of AI, learn to utilize frontier technology to enhance our major, and get used to working with artificial intelligence or robots in our future career. Finally, diligence and craftsmanship are not outdated at all times, and only hard work can be invincible.
