AI and the future of the workplace
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WFXG) - Artificial Intelligence could become common in the workplace. In this week's Cyber News Now, Fox54 spoke with IntelliSystems CEO Kevin Wade about how it could transform it in the near future.
Goldman Sachs estimates AI could replace around 300 million full-time jobs. But, Wade says it's not all bad news.
Take high-demand jobs like software coding or legal assistant that always need filling. But, what if they didn't have to constantly search because machines could bridge the gap?
We've seen it already in fast-food restaurants with kiosks that take orders. How about a machine that could fill the roles of five humans; taking orders and even cooking food? If you take away the human, expenses also go down.
Wade says there's a potential to streamline the business process and increase efficiency. "It becomes less labor intensive and maybe more person-to-person and experience intensive for the human in our future workforce."
It could even create better jobs for people. "There's humans that manage the machines and those may be much better jobs than the mundane difficult work that has to be done today by hand," Wade says.
If you believe the movies then we've already seen fictional accounts of machines filling human jobs. But, experts say that the science of AI may just create new jobs for people that previously didn't exist.
