Workforce Displacement

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are quietly reshaping the global business landscape and redefining our workforce. Many fear the drawbacks of AI, which include workforce displacement from the automation and growing privacy concerns. Organizations are tasked with determining their priorities and creating an Artificial Intelligence strategy.

The Human Element

Together, we will solve today’s the greatest challenges, including hunger, illness and environmental sustainability. Will work with machines to elevate our understanding of the world and explore new worlds. While doing so, we will find greater levels of compassion for each other. Our evolution was tied to human information sharing and learning. In a search for knowledge over time, society developed increased level of sophistication in language. In creating computers, we encoded a human element in machines, but now also listen to learn the language of machines. We work to create machines that think and move like humans. The human element is forever present in artificial minds.

Internet of Things

Smart cities, wearables, connected cars and homes, provide immense amounts of data on our daily behaviors. Computer recognition of patterns in our habits lead us towards a deeper understanding on how to reduce energy consumption, increase population health, and influence more informed lifestyle decisions. Wireless sensor networks monitor the conditions around us and automatically respond to ensure greater levels of safety, comfort, efficiency, lower traffic, decrease crime, and identify security breaches.

Rapid Change

The pace at which new jobs are created and then displaced will increase (i.e. Uber’s need for drivers and parallel need for programmers to develop their driverless platform). These changes will force us to create a new relationship with machines and each other.

Machine Learning

Build, consult a specialized vendor, or partner with large technology companies leading in AI development (including Google, Apple, and Amazon) to further determine consumer insights and evolve services. Natural language processing, voice recognition and computer vision technologies now allow machines to recognize consumer mood and sentiment. Each day, machines learn and have greater levels of capability in seeing the indications of how we feel.

Compassion

With the rise of media, in particular social media, people are increasingly more connected to the general state of societal affairs. However, many feel more disconnected from each others individual emotional needs. Machines have the ability to more accurately guess the individual needs of every person, imitate human cognitive functions and remind us of what makes us human, our compassion for others in need.
