AI & The Future Workforce — What Will the Future Enterprise Demand for Their Workforce?
Presented by: Andy Chen
The introduction of systems with unprecedented abilities in autonomous thought and action will force our future workforce to evolve our management practices. To optimize the output of systems that are more powerful and intelligent than us, we will need to develop ways of managing the new dynamics.
A new set of ‘firm’ management skills will emerge; skills that will combine the ability to use soft skills, such as leadership and negotiation, with hard technical abilities. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning systems industries will need to begin segmenting into specializations for personal and professional needs. Professional AI systems will be owned and maintained by organizations, requiring higher levels of privacy and specialization than Personal AI’s. This implies the need to examine our current practices for ensuring loyalty and productivity in our companies. Business Analysts can play an important role supporting this new dynamic. We will need to establish management accountabilities in this new environment. This poses an important question: As human kind and machines integrate further through the development of AI and automatic machine learning systems; how do we maintain the upper hand?
