Although a common fear is that AI will eventually take jobs and leave people unemployed, the reality could be very different. AI will take over the routine, tedious jobs leaving people free to be more flexible and productive. Independent contractors and the gig economy are thriving and growing as a result of technology such as video chats, instant messengers, and networking software that enables online collaboration. Workers with remote or virtual job positions choose when and where they work instead of being locked down in an office or single location.
- AI will not take away people’s jobs but rather it will usher in a new way of working and increase work flexibility.
- When technology is being used in daily lives to make work scalable in better ways, we know that it has been done before.
- The data insight that are gotten from AI at work are invaluable because it helps to solve more problems at work than it creates.
“It’s less fearmongering but it’s a line of thinking that organisations must adopt to prepare for the workplace of tomorrow, today.”
