The future of work is female
AI is increasingly taking over jobs requiring physical strength and analytical skills - stereotypically attributed to men. But the way to automate social skills like empathy and caregiving – stereotypically attributed to women - is still quite long. Example: 3 million truck drivers in the US (95% male) have a risk of obsolescence of 80-100%; 3 million secretaries (95% female) have a risk of obsolescence of about 10%. What does this development mean for our future social structure? What actions are needed to prevent negative consequences of such transition? Will the future of work be female?
