Artificial intelligence is slated to disrupt 4.5 million jobs for African Americans, who have a 10% greater likelihood of automation-based job loss than other workers
Oct 7, 2019
By 2030, artificial intelligence and AI-related technology will have replaced or eliminated 4.5 million jobs held by African Americans. By that time, 22% of all jobs will be replaced or eliminated. However, the Black community in particular is at a 10% higher risk of losing jobs from automation than the general public. In fact, Black men who lack a college degree are particularly vulnerable, while Black women fare a bit better.
