The Impact of AI on the Jobs
Tech world’s current blue-eyed boy, Artificial intelligence (AI) is enabling people to rethink how we integrate information, analyze data, and use the resulting insights to improve decision making—and already it is transforming every walk of life. But there has also been a lot of debate on how AI will impact the jobs in the future. While the world stands divided on the issue, business leaders from around the world have a positive outlook on the matter.
Kris Gopalakrishnan, former CEO of IT giant Infosys has an interesting take on the emergence of AI. Kris was present at the India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2018, where he expressed his views on AI’s impact businesses and talked about how it can transform things and how we humans have to live with machines and become as smart as them.
Speaking about the widespread fear of AI taking away the jobs, Kris believed every new technology can potentially replace people. And hence we need to figure out what are the jobs in the future, what are the skills that are required in the future and make sure that we acquire those skills.
To summarize, the world is on the cusp of revolutionizing many sectors through artificial intelligence. AI may well be a revolution in human affairs and become the single most influential human innovation in history.
