Global Big Data Conference

#artificialintelligence

Since the dawn of the computer age, humans have viewed the approach of artificial intelligence (AI) with some degree of apprehension. Popular AI depictions often involve killer robots or all-knowing, all-seeing systems bent on destroying the human race. These sentiments have similarly pervaded the news media, which tends to greet breakthroughs in AI with more alarm or hype than measured analysis. In reality, the true concern should be whether these overly-dramatized, dystopian visions pull our attention away from the more nuanced -- yet equally dangerous -- risks posed by the misuse of AI applications that are already available or being developed today. AI permeates our everyday lives, influencing which media we consume, what we buy, where and how we work, and more.


Global Big Data Conference

#artificialintelligence

Each industrial revolution has brought with it new ways of working โ€“ think of the impact computers and digital technology (the third industrial revolution) have had on how we work. But this fourth industrial revolution โ€“ what I call the "intelligence revolution," because it is being driven by AI and data โ€“ feels unprecedented in terms of the sheer pace of change. The crucial difference between this and the previous industrial revolutions is we're no longer talking about generational change; we're talking about enormous transformations that are going to take place within the next five, 10 or 20 years. Here are the three biggest ways I see AI fundamentally changing the work that humans do, within a very short space of time. Increasing automation is an obvious place to start since a common narrative surrounding AI is "robots are going to take all our jobs."

The Future of Artificial Intelligence is Here

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is rapidly changing the business and consumer landscape, but has it reached its full potential? And in 2016, we will continue this momentum and see artificial intelligence redefine the future of work, deliver on the promise of big data, and even transform consumers' lives. The pace at which large-scale organizations more widely adopt artificial intelligence to replace manual, repetitive tasks will rapidly increase. We're already seeing enormous investments from companies like Toyota to use artificial intelligence for more precise decision making. This is just one example of the many companies taking this approach to foster higher productivity and business profits, and also streamline responsibilities for high-skill jobs.

7 ways AI will shape the future of work & higher ed - eCampus News

#artificialintelligence

With so many industries seeing the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) applications come to fruition, we will need highly trained workers to fill what is likely to be a rising demand for such skills. In fact, the number of LinkedIn members adding these skills to their profiles saw a 190 percent increase between 2015 and 2017. Software and IT services saw incredible growth in the past two years, but education, hardware and networking, finance, and manufacturing saw increases as well. In fact, AI is one of the top four specific technological advances (along with ubiquitous high-speed mobile internet, widespread adoption of big data analytics, and cloud technology) set to positively affect business in the 2018-2022 period. Machine learning and augmented and virtual reality are poised to likewise receive considerable business investment.

Business Process Management and Improvement although fighting the good fight, remain as niche as true Organizational Design and that's an indictment.


AI and the Next Recession - InformationWeek

#artificialintelligence

Recent reports of strong job growth in the US suggest the economy may currently be at "peak employment." That fact has made the widely-publicized concerns over the impact of automation and artificial intelligence on jobs seem overblown and out of step with the times. Yet, the clouds of the next economic contraction are gathering. Some economists and executives believe a recession could come as early as this year while others expect it's another year or two out. Rana Foroohar, a global business columnist and an associate editor at the Financial Times, recently stated on CNN that more than half of CFOs at large U.S. companies expect a recession in the next year.


Embrace big data and robots -- they're the future of work

#artificialintelligence

President Donald Trump's July 19 executive order establishing the President's National Council for the American Worker is directed at preparing Americans for the workplace of the future. Although short on specifics, the order sends a powerful message about the need for revitalizing educational opportunities if Americans are to thrive in the era of big data, robots and artificial intelligence. The president's intent is to lay the groundwork for tackling a national "skills crisis." His order accepts that Americans need additional skills to fill the current 6.7 million job vacancies. In fact, the executive order gives official imprimatur to what many in industry and academia have feared for some time: "The economy is changing at a rapid pace because of the technology, automation, and artificial intelligence," and existing programs have "prepared Americans for the economy of the past."
