Artificial intelligence and all the advanced analytics technologies that go with it are driving a new wave of innovation when it comes to analytics. The possibilities, opportunities, and use cases that surround machine learning and natural language processing and capturing the imagination of organizations and even the public.
Self-driving cars and chatbots that mimic real customer service representatives may be some of the more well-known use cases today. But other technologies are out there that can diagnose health conditions, advance treatment for cancer, and improve the outcomes for cardiac patients.
By applying thes technologies, organizations can realize better efficiency and lower costs. They can also eliminate human error and bias. Plus, they can automate many of the more repetitive and mundane tasks that are currently performed by humans. AI doesn't get bored. AI is more quickly scalable.
Yet some of those benefits are also cause for concern. Will the rise of these technologies eliminate jobs? After all, AI is being used to perform tasks from customer service to medical diagnostics -- from the lowest paid jobs to the highest paid. And if jobs are eliminated, how should we modify our career strategies to ensure that we are prepared to be in a good position for the workplace of the future?
There are still so many questions than answers for how AI and machine learning will ultimately affect society as a whole.
