Will AI machines replace humans through automation?
Everywhere you turn these days, there’s talk about new technologies automation is replacing people .Will AI really replace human ?
As automation new technologies such as machine learning and robotics play an increasingly great role in everyday life, their potential effect on the workplace has, unsurprisingly, become a major focus of research and public concern. The discussion tends toward a Manichean guessing game: which
jobs will or won’t be replaced by machine .
Artificial Intelligence can only process data that has been coded into its system but on the other hand organizations and their teams constantly interact with the outside environment. Unlike human beings, AI can’t take into consideration the impact of the outside world. Different work settings demand different abilities to work under sudden changes.
Artificial intelligence or AI simulates human intellect to machines. AI-enabled machines are capable of performing specific tasks better than humans and mimic human actions.
◾️Whenever a new technology is invented and adopted, several job roles become redundant and jobs are lost.
◾️New technologies increase productivity and reduce human efforts. Moreover, to have a competitive edge in the market, companies keep implementing upgrades. It not only helps in increasing the speed of work but also helps in cost cutting.
However, the question still remains. Can technology replace humans?
The answer is NO.
If on one hand, job are lost through automation, on the other hand several new job roles are created. Humans are needed to implement, maintain and deploy the new technologies.
◾️If humans work synergistically with technology, productivity can be increased multi fold.
◾️We should not take new technologies as threat to jobs. We should rather learn skills around the new developments and stay relevant in the job market.
