From driverless cars, trucks, and delivery drones, from kiosks to chatbots, the number of jobs being displaced by AI, machine learning, and automation continues to grow. Even industries such as banking and finance, law, medicine, training and education, staffed by highly skilled professionals whose jobs had been considered immune from automation, are being disrupted.
The harsh reality is: no industry is safe, including yours.
The good news is that you can have the best of both worlds, in which people and computers play to their strengths, and offset each other’s weaknesses. In this webinar, you’ll take your first steps in identifying these strengths and weaknesses, and formulate an initial strategy for implementing the workforce of the future in your organization today.
This strategy will also include how to make AI work for your business, setting up plans for workforce training, along with a system of governance that will reduce risks associated with increasing levels of automated knowledge work, especially decision-making.
Leaders know they need to get on board, but the speed and complexity of the technology and its implications can be overwhelming. This includes fear of not knowing what’s really going on “under the hood” of their AI systems, which seem to be taking over increasing numbers of functions in their organizations.
As AI and machine learning become more pervasive, so do the risks. Managers and execs alike know they need the increased efficiency that automation brings, or else they find themselves becoming increasingly less cost competitive. But there are also serious concerns about risks.
Rather than viewing AI as a threat, form strategies for getting your people and AI working together in ways that take your organization far beyond what would have been possible using either AI or human capital alone.
It doesn’t have to be a “humans vs. machines” proposition. Overcome the fear of ever-increasing “machine intelligence” and discover how forward-looking companies are finding ways to harmoniously merge these two seemingly opposing forces, and use those insights to craft your own unique strategy. You’ll be amazed at the results.
