A global research body, Gartner has revealed that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be a net job creator while at the same time eliminate some in global technology ecosystem by 2020.
In a latest study, it stated that AI will introduce new opportunities and challenges in the workplace, it will improve productivity as well as revolutionise industries.
“AI will create 2.3 Million jobs in 2020, while eliminating 1.8 Million. The company says AI will become a positive job motivator,” the report said.
AI can be used by organisations that use heavy machinery to detect immediate faults and make real-time decisions and in the banking sector to streamline the process of applying for loans. This technology is coming to the workplace at a rapid pace. AI will undoubtedly impact the workplace and become the biggest disruptor the business world has seen in over two centuries.
furthermore, according to Rob Jardine, Head of Research and Solutions at the NeuroLeadership Institute South Africa, AI is set to change the workforce in the next few decades, but not all these changes will be threatening. He says employers need to ensure that their employees realise this by playing to the social domains that trigger the brain so that every individual can continue to perform optimally, learn new skills, and work towards their future roles in stimulating our economy.
Study conducted by Gartner shows that four percent of CIOs have implemented AI, while a further 46 percent have developed plans to do so.
