Mr. Paul Petrone explains the idea behind AI in today’s industry
“You are probably reading this and thinking – okay, what do I do? Will a computer steal my job? How do I stay relevant? The good news is that AI won’t mean the removal of massive jobs. But it will mean the transformation of millions of jobs, requiring workers to learn new skills to thrive in them. We are already seeing that happen in the software and finance industries, where AI is ubiquitous. Other fields will soon experience a similar transformation as well,” wrote Paul Petrone, editor at LinkedIn Learning.
The LinkedIn study results are in line with the academic study titled The Augmented Human Enterprise by Goldsmiths, the University of London, and Automation Anywhere.
This study revealed that 71% of Indian respondents said that their employees used RPA and AI-based augmentation to its full potential, it is the highest proportion for any of the four markets surveyed.
