Artificial Intelligence has become an important part of the businesses to go forward. AI is something like computer program or software which have a mechanism to learn. These programs use this learned knowledge to make decisions in new situations just like human beings. Creating machine intelligence is much easier. In a recent poll, machine intelligence experts predicted that computers will gain the human level ability by 2050 and superhuman ability by 2080.
According to a recent survey conducted by EY, one in three organizations already have fully implemented Artificial Intelligence. It means 33% of the organizations are fully AI enabled and another 20% have implemented Artificial Intelligence at parts in their organizations. AI professionals also feel that AI technology is not yet reached to maturity, so it becomes important to take a wait and watch approach.
From the centuries it is said that technological development causes unemployment or loss of jobs. Artificial intelligence has increased the fear among the humans to replacing the human beings with the robots. With the development AI technology is continuing to master in increasing numbers of tasks. But the demand for skilled and tech talent is growing with AI development in more and more domains.
Artificial Intelligence requires skilled people to get the work done or to perform some tasks. In the EY survey, most of the AI professionals accepted that it is tough to get the skilled people to implement and perform the artificial intelligence in their organizations. 56% of AI professional say that lack of skills is the greatest barrier to the implementation of AI technology. There is a huge gap between data scientists, programmers, cybersecurity experts and IT experts. This gap can be filled by providing proper training to the workforce.
Below are some more ways to bridge this widening gap,
- Education: We have to put more focus on computer science in schools and other educational institutions. It will help to prepare the future generation to fill this widening technological gap.
- Training and development: Technological jobs need a sophisticated level of skills. Training and development play an important role in the development of skills which are needed for the artificial intelligence. Business organizations can also provide the job training to their employees so that they can perform better in this digital era. Finding the right candidate for the AI jobs is another challenge. Many posts remain vacant because organizations are not able to find the right candidate for the job. Some of AI companies such as FirstJob and Ibenta are using AI-powered recruitment assistant Mya which intelligently engages with applicants during the hiring process. Recruiters just have to intervene when the AI recruitment assistant is not able to handle a specific input. This tool helps the organizations to process more applications in a shorter time.
Because of artificial intelligence, many new types of job opportunities are arising. Organizations are identifying the skills which can make the difference and provide training to their employees so that they can perform better.
