Is era of AI+ coming?
Yes, we're coming!
But are you really ready?
"In next 10 years, 50% of people will be out of work." The widespread use of artificial intelligence in workplace was once a concern for people in workplace. There are many articles on topic "Will AI make people lose their jobs?" vacancies” on main information platforms. endlessly.With advent of AI+ security era, a large number of security personnel will lose their jobs.
The era of AI + security has arrived, and creation and development of an intelligent security system has given a new impetus to traditional security industry. Technological tools such as smart surveillance cameras and built-in smart facial recognition chips have greatly reduced role of labor force and greatly improved work efficiency. Intelligent security is a general trend. Machines are replacing labor. With lower labor costs, a group of low-level personnel at grassroots level will inevitably be eliminated. The industry's thirst for high-end talent will become higher and higher.
McKinsey Global Institute (McKinsey Global Institute) published report "The Future of Work: Automation, Employment and Productivity", which analyzes impact of automation (automation) trends on various industries. The report notes that while no more than 5% of jobs can be completely replaced by technology, in nearly 60% of jobs, at least 30% of job content will be automated.
The fact is that there is no panic that grassroots positions in security industry will be replaced by artificial intelligence.Where will 1.66 million security personnel go in age of artificial intelligence and security?
In past ten years, security industry has been very labor intensive. In era of artificial intelligence, importance of talent is obvious.
For entire industry, a breakthrough in quantity and quality of talent can help industry grow; after all, for businesses, competition is still talent competition; robots will not replace it.
So, security has entered era of artificial intelligence, what kind of people will not be replaced by artificial intelligence?
Competition in field of intellectual security at first glance is a competition of algorithms, services and technologies, but in fact it is a competition of AI talents. Developing AI talent is a key vehicle for security companies to realize "a century-old enterprise with a market value of 100 billion yuan." In order to prepare and educate AI talents in advance, many security companies have started to implement “school-to-enterprise collaborations” with colleges and universities.
Security and maintenance staff
In era of AI+ robots, security companies' primary requirements for front-line employees are changing from working in workshop to maintaining and repairing security equipment. The explosive growth in construction of smart cities has led to widespread flourishing of city monitoring systems. The demand for maintenance and repair of equipment of tens of thousands of observation points entails an expansion of market for operation and maintenance of security systems.
Those who can provide professional and market-oriented O&M services are sure to become "favorites". With expansion of applications of smart security, security and maintenance personnel should be able to provide more market-oriented and efficient security operation and maintenance services in line with characteristics of subdivided industries such as smart transportation, smart home, and safe city.
AI robots have IQ but not EQ, so robots cannot replace out-of-the-box thinking of security system developers. For safety purposes, good design can make product softer and friendlier, and make product more practical and functional.
Composite Security Talents
The security industry itself is an application industry with fuzzy boundaries. The technologies used in field of security are very extensive, especially now, in era of transition from analog monitoring to IP. The security industry is developing in direction of integration, and talents and technologies required are widely involved, such as IP networking, computer operating system, optics, automation, electronic information engineering, etc.
In terms of development needs of security industry, at present, industry has most demand for comprehensive complex talents. Practitioners must not only be proficient in multidisciplinary and complex technologies, but must also be able to quickly understand security business needs of customers.
The era of artificial intelligence is worst and best era for security professionals. The technological revolution will make some people unemployed, but it will also create new jobs.
Yi An Fang believes that: natural selection, survival of fittest. At this point, security personnel may want to plan ahead and take action. Only by constantly updating your knowledge and moving from a simple post to a technical one, you can not be forced to go offline in flow of history.
Do you think security personnel will lose their jobs in age of artificial intelligence?
