As time goes on and technology continues to advance, new career fields will arise and industries that currently exist will expand a need for new roles.

Unfortunately, there are casualties during this time of rapid change, and not all industries will survive the advancement of technology.

The rise of artificial intelligence

It's no secret that artificial intelligence is being incorporated more and more into our everyday lives. While this is great at making mundane tasks easier and can even assist in staying organized, it also presents a glaring problem for us humans.

According to Goldman Sachs, AI could "expose the equivalent of 300 million full-time jobs to automation." Even scarier, they say that automation could rob workers who earn up to $80,000 a year according to Nexford.

When is AI expected to take over?

According to a report from Forbes, we could see "as many as two million manufacturing workers" replaced by AI by next year.

If you're wondering how this affects Idaho, we found data that shows which career fields will be completely wiped out by the year 2030. While artificial intelligence could be a result of some of these industries, there are other factors involved including newer (and more efficient) equipment, lack of demand, etc.
