It’s going to take a century for artifical intelligence to be able to perform most human jobs. But there are going to be some key developments during the next decade.

According to a survey of leading AI researchers, all human tasks may become highly automatable by 2116. While this prediction seems far off, it is worth noting that it has been moved up by 50 years from the original estimate of 2164. Short-term developments are also expected to reshape IT and business professionals’ jobs within the next five to 10 years. The survey highlights several capabilities that AI will achieve in the near future, including finding and patching security flaws, building websites, offering phone banking services, writing Python code, finetuning large language models, and conducting machine-learning studies and writing papers. The researchers attribute the development of AI to the drop in computing costs.
