AI To Replace Jobs: Are Our Black Mirror Days Finally Here?

We can't seem to escape the rise of AI and the fact that it's seemingly out to replace us. Recently, Human Resources Minister V Sivakumar said that as many as 4.5 million Malaysians are likely to lose their jobs by 2030 if they do not improve their skills. So, we spoke to the CEO of the Malaysian HR Forum about his observations and how AI is impacting the local job market. Then, we heard from listeners on whether they're worried about losing their jobs to AI and how they are preparing for it.
