Artificial Intelligence (AI) is disrupting all kinds of industries and changing them for the better. While most discussions around AI are positive, there are still fears around AI’s impact on the job market.
In many cases, AI won’t replace workers but it will make them better at their jobs. It will enable workers to refocus their jobs around areas where a human touch can add value. The impact of AI is already being felt and we see it as not about phasing people out but finding smarter ways to work.
AI is enabling many types of jobs to become easier and more efficient. It permits extremely large quantities of data to be made accessible and useful for people to make faster and more precise decisions. While this can be seen as outsmarting human beings, it is actually enabling workers to manage and use more data with better results.
This means workers will be able to proactively manage situations based on extremely complex data patterns while businesses will be able to make larger and more targeted investments. It creates a new business environment that is different but isn’t simply about removing people from the workforce.
At the same time, AI is driving demand for new skills. We must be prepared to “up-skill and re-skill” according to the UK parliament.
At Stage Intelligence, we agree that education and training systems across the world should be developed and made more flexible. They should teach students about AI and the skills they need to accommodate to a life working with it. AI is not going away and as it becomes ever present within day-to-day life, specifically within the jobs market, it is important that we can all find a way to maximise the potential of AI in our businesses.
We believe that AI should be embraced as a technology that helps facilitate jobs and enhances our lives. At Stage Intelligence we use AI to create intelligent solutions to solve complex problems within logistics in Bike Share Schemes. Our AI is helping Bike Share Scheme operators to increase usability and ridership allowing its staff to focus on other core areas of the business. By embracing AI both individuals and technology can work together to make a better Bike Share Scheme.
It is important that we all find a way to embrace and work with AI. It should not be seen as a threat but rather as an opportunity. AI can improve the jobs market and evolve the ways of working to create greater efficiency, enhancing the lives of everyone.
