On the first day of the Digital Innovators Summit (DIS) in Berlin this week Linda Ligios, managing editor of the Springwise innovation intelligence company, revealed the findings of a new innovation report into AI and the future of work.
A recent McKinsey report found that globally around half of the work people are paid to do could theoretically be automated using technology that already exists. Yet, as overall spending on technology grows, this will also create millions of new jobs in new areas of work such as climate adaptation. In a World Economic Forum survey of global Human Resource Departments, 44 per cent said that the principal driver of change in the workplace is new technologies which enable remote working, co-working space and teleconferencing.
One of the key focusses of artificial intelligence in business centres around a branch of AI known as Deep Learning. It is deep learning algorithms for example that allow some types of chatbots to ask and answer customers’ questions, cars to learn how to drive themselves, and companies like Facebook to develop sophisticated photo recognition software.
Focussing on 10 key AI deep learning areas, the specialised report will introduce readers to case studies from the following sectors:
The information has been compiled by the Springwise Editorial team, supported by a network of over 20,000 ‘Springspotters’ in 190+ countries. One of the big fears that people have when discussing deep learning is that computers will take over decision-making functions, making humans obsolete in even highly-skilled areas of work. However, a better model for using AI may be that of a partnership, in which AI performs the rote and repetitive aspects of data analysis, while humans decide how the data is used. The Springwise AI innovation report provides tangible examples on how such partnerships are already being implemented in the marketplace today.
