Impact of Artificial Intelligence in the Workplace

It was not long ago that Artificial Intelligence (AI) was the stuff of science fiction where computer-based intelligence threatened the existence of mankind. Today, AI has proven to be a far more benign presence whose applications are used in businesses both small and large around the world. The future of AI in workplace is now and the impact which was once thought to be well into the future has already arrived. How can AI technology help companies to achieve their potential? The truth is that technology should automate the work processes and help employees to solve complex problems in various companies. By implementing AI and machine learning on digital processes, we will get the best results.

How AI Works

Artificial intelligence combined with deep learning helps employees organize their work processes. The goal is to make a faster and more efficient productivity combined with easier data analysis so that flaws can be spotted. This will improve company’s bottom line.

Right now, most companies have data analytic tools which are not user-friendly and often filled with glitches that can alter the perception of the information. Even more disturbing is that many larger companies are still using old and outdated tools in their intranet systems that makes them out-of-touch with today’s world.

Unfortunately, these companies use outdated tools and unreliable methods because of the false belief that they are saving money. However, the result is a loss in productivity as they spend more time on work processes that have system and server errors which increase down time. Even many workplaces’ internal phone systems often do not function properly which makes things worse. In their goal of saving a few bucks, many companies forgo the modern tools that would help their businesses become more productive.

Fear of Artificial Intelligence 

Elon Musk installed fear of A.I, gamed tech world and they bought it. He gets A.I there is no doubt about it, but there is an agenda behind all these fear of AI mumbo jumbos. Musk is a businessman just like Donald Trump. These guys came to power for a reason and they all are opportunistic.Musk has watched too much Hollywood Anti-robots sci-fi movies which blurred his view on AI and robotics.

Take Google as an example. The company has hired almost every interesting AI and machine-learning company over the last few years. It bought DeepMind for $650 million. They built the Google Brain team to work on A.I. Google hired Geoffrey Hinton, a British pioneer in artificial neural networks; and Ray Kurzweil, who has predicted that we are only 28 years away from the Rapture-like “Singularity”. It’s in Larry Page’s blood and Google’s DNA to believe that A.I. is their destiny.

In my opinion there is an agenda (which generates profit for these rich people) behind fear of AI which these guys are spreading on the Internet. Every time this subject is discussed a product has been promoted.

There is no reason to worry, because we build robots that will work with us. We program robots and give input data to machine learning in order to do what we want it to do for us. It all starts with us how to train a robot to work for us. Then the machine will learn over time to perform a task in workplace.

AI is misunderstood and fearing of AI is against technological advancement.

We can create ethics and industry standards or testing when it comes to programming AI robotics. I read an Anti-AI article that “genetic diversity will be wiped out“. I have been wondering if these people were on drugs or drunk when they wrote these articles? We program AI in healthcare and how it develops genetic diversity. Gene-tweaking doesn’t have anything to do with AI fails healthcare. It is a revolution in genetics. What’s wrong with that? We program AI to reduce the risks of diseases. Misusing gene therapy when it goes wrong is human’s fault and not machine. We program the machine, remember? When it comes to AI is stealing our jobs, I disagree. AI automates processes and heavy work which hurts human workers.

Why the Future of AI in Workplace is Today?

Many companies do not have the right tables and chairs of proper ergonomic design which cause back pains and health problems in such nature.This is why many employees after working a few years get health problems.This has a negative impact on productivity at work place. Simple things like that hurt the bottom line. Lack of A.I and modern tools at organizations cause bankruptcy.

AI ensures data accuracy and improves a company’s financial standing, budget, and decision making processes. Consider the impact of AI on recruiting processes. When the right data is given into the system, the result will be that the right candidate gets the right job. It makes the job easier for HR people. Do you know how much this will save money for companies? Right now, 99% of recruiting application systems are outdated that often provide the wrong result. It’s little wonder that you see the same job application all over again.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning make life easier for companies and organizations. It saves money, improves employees health situation, lower stress at work and increases productivity.

    We have a lot of problems at work, our chairs and tables are not ergonomic. I got back pain because of it, so I asked my boss to do something about it. Thanks for spreading the word Maria. I hope our managers listen to your advice. I have already spread your article at work and many of my colleagues loved it.

    Congratulations for another great content. I bought your book.

    I agree we should embrace Ai in tech instead of being afraid.

  • Jason Stines

    I know you are fan of ELon Musk Maria, I have been following your twitter account for a long time and I remember when you applauded Elon Musk and supported his solar panels. You even wrote If you have a billion dollar you would have donated to support his SpaceX project. So I know your intention is good. I also think Musk’s fear of A.I is unnecessary. Thanks Maria.

    You are so right, Maria. I bought your book and am on page 60 now. Your knowledge of AI and machine learning is impressive. The reason I bought your book was to read about your thoughts and insights on future of search engines. It is really exciting to know and I can’t wait to get to the search engine part in your book. You’re genius, Maria. Hats off to you!
