  • All great points about the increased operational efficiencies ML brings to the table and the relationship between humans and machines in an intelligent future, although I would argue that most of this is already in place today. Particularly in the enterprise, embracing the value of AI and data is an absolutely necessity to stay competitive. Those not implementing some flavor of AI, whether company-wide intelligence systems or simple process automation, are already behind the curve.

  • AI in business is inevitable and will focus on many things - but specifically things that are detrimental (boring/repetitive) for humans, or things that move us beyond human abilities. The ethics of both are interesting.

    The former is proving controversial in its effect on jobs, but ultimately AI/automation is what can drive workers to a world beyond the unskilled drudgery (still to be defined).

    AI in business is inevitable and will focus on many things - but specifically things that are detrimental (boring/repetitive) for humans, or things that move us beyond human abilities. The ethics of both are interesting.

    The former is proving controversial in its effect on jobs, but ultimately AI/automation is what can drive workers to a world beyond the unskilled drudgery (still to be defined).

    The latter has the ability to drive new levels of understanding for decision-making and transforming competitive ability. But the potential for unforeseen bias in black-box AI services to have down the road effects that cannot be undone should be much more worrisome. If it all comes crashing down, at least the common man can go back to doing what they did before AI took their jobs.

  • There are many benefits for AI from a business perspective. It simplifies and organizes several job functions. It creates a downstream impact of preventing humanity in our workplace. I noticed they indicated those who have high EQ ability will be needed (social, emotional and literary).

    I contend this will work for large companies as they can reduce their payroll and benefits costs. The rest can reach out in our local communities to help our neighbors and communities for everything that does not fit the algorithm.
