Artificial Intelligence (AI) will introduce new opportunities and challenges in the workplace, it will improve productivity as well as revolutionise industries.

AI can be used by organisations that use heavy machinery to detect immediate faults and make real-time decisions and in the banking sector to streamline the process of applying for loans.

This technology is coming to the workplace at a rapid pace. AI will undoubtedly impact the workplace and become the biggest disruptor the business world has seen in over two centuries.

According to Rob Jardine, Head of Research and Solutions at the NeuroLeadership Institute South Africa, AI is set to change the workforce in the next few decades, but not all these changes will be threatening. He says employers need to ensure that their employees realise this by playing to the social domains that trigger the brain so that every individual can continue to perform optimally, learn new skills, and work towards their future roles in stimulating our economy.

A study conducted by Gartner shows that four percent of CIOs have implemented AI, while a further 46 percent have developed plans to do so.

In another study by Gartner, AI will create 2.3 Million jobs in 2020, while eliminating 1.8 Million. The company says AI will become a positive job motivator.

IT News Africa will host the Digital Transformation Congress on 26 July 2018 at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa where leaders will discuss weaving Artificial Intelligence into the modern organisation amongst other topics.
