As the gig economy increases its influence, offices become more decentralized. Sometimes, whether to save money or finesse consistency, companies turn to artificial intelligence, or AI, for assistance. While robots have been employed to operate machinery or sort objects for years now, they are increasingly working white-collar jobs too.
Experts doubt that the workforce will ever become fully automated, however they are confident that many positions will become at least partially automated soon. For example, a robot might be able to discern increasingly popular t-shirt styles, but only a human can judge the feeling of the fabric between fingers, and the way the drape and color will fit a specific body.
Paradoxically to some, many companies find hope in this trend. They see artificial technologies not as job replacements but as job enhancers, as they often give employees more time to strengthen intuitive instinct and relationship-building techniques.
Plus, through their sophisticated search capabilities, AI can often save HR Departments hours on job fulfillment.What this means precisely is still unfolding, however many are excited about the possibility of reinventing fields, increasing project-based work, and perhaps even redefining the idea of “work” itself.
