#AI@Work: What is So Disturbing About AI?

What is so disturbing is that AI has been coming for so long and suddenly it’s everywhere. AI has become an everyday technology. It is the start of a new chapter in human history. A chapter that can and will have a greater impact than almost anyone can imagine. A wide range of services, products and sources have contributed to the emergence of AI. It is time for our focus to shift from the technical aspects of AI to the impact it will have on human lives. It is no longer about when AI will it happen or how the technology can work. Rather it is about what AI can do for us. How will AI impact us, both positively and negatively? We have entered the world of everyday AI.


With every technology comes displacement and upheaval. The workforce is transformed and rearranged. AI is certainly no exception. It has the potential to be the most disruptive yet. Business will drive the deployment of AI. Humans in every aspect of society need to be involved in the voice that contributes to how AI is used.


AI is both accessible and powerful. It has the potential to do a tremendous amount of good. It also has the potential to turn our world upside down, displacing millions in the workplace, eliminating jobs and creating voids as well as opportunities. AI is ready to solve problems and take over redundant and menial tasks. Are humans ready to adapt and relearn? To create a new kind of workplace? One that is not based on the old vision of transactions, widgets and repetition. One that works towards fulfilling the needs of the people, not just business. AI meets people where they are. Whether it is a chatbot on a website or an app, or a robot on the assembly line, AI goes to the need.
