How machines will change our lives in India

The world is not moving towards a dystopian future just as yet, but one can't deny the effect innovations in the robotics field will have on human life, especially when it comes to a waning workforce as a result of increased use of automation technologies. Experts have already started sounding the warning bells. As per a report published by advisory analyst firm HfS Research in July, the true impact of the emergence of intelligent automation will be felt on the global industry of 15 million IT services and BPO workers, which will see about 1.4 million job losses--a net decrease of 9%--by 2021. In India, the services industry workforce is expected to shrink by 4.8 lakh by 2021, a decline of 14%--HfS Research estimates that the IT services and BPO industry employs about 3.5 million people in the country. Last year, technology research firm Gartner predicted that one in three jobs will be converted to software, robots and smart machines by 2025.


The powerful promise of AI

How far will AI take us in areas such as healthcare? Will we see medical pods like this one featured in science fiction film Prometheus to treat future patients? CIO veteran and industry consultant, Geoff Wenborn, sees enormous opportunity for artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare - identifying 35 use cases alone for robotics and AI at places like UnitingCare Queensland. Wenborn, who provides IT transformation consulting to several organisations including UnitingCare Queensland and Starlight Children's Foundation Australia (and built some proof of concepts), said the sky's the limit in terms of use case possibilities. At UnitingCare, he was the interim CIO charged with doing transformation, and is currently the chair of the Starlight IT Advisory Board.

Gartner survey of CIOs highlights investments in AI, cloud and cybersecurity

A new survey from Gartner found that a majority of CIOs are focusing their investments this year and next year on AI and distributed cloud technology. The 2022 CIO and Technology Executive Survey features data gleaned from 2,387 CIO and technology executive respondents in 85 countries, representing about $9 trillion in revenue/public-sector budgets and $198 billion in IT spending. The survey focused on on "business composability" -- which involves the mindset, technologies and set of operating capabilities that enable organizations to innovate and adapt quickly to changing business needs. Monika Sinha, research vice president at Gartner, said business composability is an "antidote to volatility." "Sixty-three percent of CIOs at organizations with high composability* reported superior business performance compared with peers or competitors in the past year. They are better able to pursue new value streams through technology, too," Sinha said, adding that the findings from the survey were presented during the Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo Americas.
