So, we’ve all heard the catchphrase before of “not if, but when…”.
I believe this is one of those moments in history that we all need to pay very close attention to, and ultimately get on board with.
No matter what your personal feelings about emerging A.I. technologies are, we must all admit that it has the potential to disrupt the marketplace and our world in ways we’ve never experienced in our lifetime. Many see it as negative, and certainly, some see the advancements as positive. I fall into the latter group and feel that just like the industrial age, the era of mass production, and the internet, change is coming.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the business landscape. In the next two years, we can expect to see AI have a significant impact on a wide range of industries, including healthcare, retail, manufacturing, and finance.
Here are some of the ways that AI is likely to disrupt the business marketplace:
- AI-powered automation: AI is already being used to automate a wide range of tasks, from customer service to data entry. In the next two years, we can expect to see even more tasks being automated by AI. This will lead to significant job losses in some industries, but it will also create new jobs in the development and maintenance of AI-powered systems.
- Personalized customer experiences: AI can be used to collect and analyze vast amounts of data about customers, which can then be used to personalize their experiences. This could lead to increased sales and customer satisfaction.
- New product development: AI can be used to develop new products and services by identifying customer needs and trends. This could lead to increased innovation and competition in the marketplace.
- Improved decision-making: AI can be used to analyze data and make predictions, which can then be used to make better decisions. This could lead to improved efficiency and profitability for businesses.
Which businesses will be most affected by AI?
The businesses that will be most affected by AI are those that are heavily reliant on manual labor or data entry. This includes businesses in the healthcare, retail, manufacturing, and finance industries.
Which job areas may benefit from AI?
The job areas that may benefit from AI are those that are involved in the development, maintenance, and use of AI-powered systems. This includes jobs in software engineering, data science, and machine learning.
