Speech Title: Artificial Intelligence: Its Potential Risks upon Jobs From a Knowledge Based Perspective

Abstract: Although Artificial Intelligence (AI) has significantly reshaped the present and the future of our lives in many ways. There are worthwhile risks regarding the potential impact of AI on different aspects. This study focused on the risks facing current jobs in different sectors. The analysis of potential risks relied on the nature of job activities in terms of repetition, routine, non-routine, complexity and creativity, in light of the dimensions of tacit knowledge, according to the tripartite model of tacit knowledge notion: intellectual abilities, physical skills, and the emotional aspect of attitudes and morals. Structured interviews were the main method for gathering primary data. Data on 20 selected jobs were reviewed and summarized and presented to a group of academic experts and practitioners in multiple disciplines (Delphi method) to figure out the magnitude of the impact of potential risks from the inclusion of artificial intelligence upon jobs.The study resulted in four types of effected jobs, ranging from jobs with a complete displacement of workforces to save jobs in the near and long term.
