Artificial Intelligence

The workforce must prepare for AI colleagues

Artificial intelligence is one of the technologies that’ll define the world over the next few years. While this innovation is still in the early stages, it’s already demonstrating that it can compete with human intelligence. From writing computer code to beating professional poker players, AI is constantly advancing.

In the business world, artificial intelligence can speed up complex, timely processes and improve efficiencies overall. When it comes to using AI systems in the workplace, opinion seems to be varied. Although many people see the benefits of this technology, others are worried that machines could eventually replace humans.

According to a recent report from software firm Pegasystems, 86 per cent of firms said they’re happy with the prospect of bringing AI workers to office. Meanwhile, 67 per cent believe that the workplace of the future will consist of both machines and human workers.
