IBM chairman and CEO Ginni Rometty believes 100% of jobs will be changed by artificial intelligence.

“Technology is going to move faster than the skills will catch up,” she said during an exclusive interview with Quartz ahead of taking the stage at the company’s Think event in San Francisco earlier this month.

AI infuses many aspects of IBM human-resources processes. Job candidates interact with its Watson AI technology, for example, and IBM also uses it to evaluate pay fairness and analyze career pathing.

Watch the video above to learn how the pace of technological change has altered the traits Rometty looks for in hiring, and to hear her discuss what she views as “undoubtedly the most sophisticated AI-driven HR in the world.” Rometty also talks about promising new models of education, and looking beyond US universities to prepare the workforce for jobs of the future.
