A.I. Has Taken Your Next Job with Neil Sahota

In the past, there’s been a lot of resistance to the idea of artificial intelligence in business. As Neil Sahota and I talk about in today's episode, many people fear that automating jobs will lead to unemployment, or that the technology isn’t safe.
But then the pandemic came, and the great resignation along with it. Now, both in the UK and the US, there are a lot of job vacancies. This people shortage has been a great accelerator for AI. With less people working, artificial intelligence in business has become more useful than ever. In fact, this technology is developing rapidly. Already, there are programs capable of doing creative and problem-solving tasks.
And yet, with all of the possibilities associated with the incorporation of artificial intelligence in business, many small and medium-sized companies have been reluctant to embrace this technology. Not just in terms of automating jobs, but across the board.
Why? Well, this partly has to do with the perceived expense of artificial technology. But it also has to do with mindset, and the need to feel that machines can’t possibly do what we, humans, can do. But as Neil Sahota puts it, if it's AI taking your job that you're afraid of, it probably already has. Which only means one thing for us. The nature of our jobs will have to evolve with the times.
The truth is, machines can do a lot of the things that we used to do AND cheaper, faster, and with less errors. Already with self-driving cars, artificial technology removes human error from the equation, thereby making the roads safer.
Considering how rapidly technology is progressing, our mindsets will have to shift. In order to thrive, we need to understand the changes going on, be willing to adapt, and learn to take full advantage of using artificial intelligence in business. Most importantly, jobs will have to evolve, and, as Neil Sahota says, value will have to be created elsewhere down the chain.
Artificial intelligence is here. We’re already automating jobs and relying on machines for critical tasks. The only question is… how will you use it?
