Artificial Intelligence To Streamline Commercial Business

Posted in Software on 27th Feb, 2017 02:13 AM by Alex Muller

Billions of workers around the world are paid to perform easy-to-automate or repetitive tasks. Whether it’s administrative work, scheduling, decision making, inventory or most, a robot could usually do it better… and faster. Artificial intelligence develops more and more each given year, promising to redefine the way we live, move and work.

The AI analytics research industry funding has rising from an $8.2 billion investment in 2013 to a predicted $70 billion by 2020, according to a Bank of America report citing IDC research.
A recent Harvard Business Review study found that managers currently spend about 54% of their time handling administrative coordination and control when they could be making higher judgement calls.
From healthcare and education to finance, cognitive AI machines will impact decisions made by providing faster and more accurate data.
Change is coming. We must first learn to understand its nature and prepare for the best case scenario: a world where humans can utilize their highest intelligence in harmony with AI.
Efficiency is for robots. While they work at an excelled capacity, they think much differently than we do. Instead of competing with them, we can learn from them.
“In the future, you’ll be paid for how well you work with these bots,” said tech visionary and Wired Magazine co-founder Kevin Kelly.
Many well-known tech moguls, including Tesla’s Elon Musk, envision the numerous AI possibilities.
They could restructure the workplace completely. There are billions of easy-to-automate jobs at all levels where AI cognitive bots could be utilized.
A Harvard Business Review research experiment was conducted for which 1,770 managers from 14 countries as well as 37 executives in charge of digital transformations were interviewed. They found that most managers are spending over half of their time on administrative tasks.
With smart machines, administrative tasks are only the beginning of eliminated time-consuming tasks. This would help make managers time more valuable.
Think about juggling schedules or evaluating staff performances. While some human judgement may be required, it’s not nearly as much as most people might think. With AI-powered software, the processes would be infinitely faster. 
AI technology is great at solving specific problems. Imagine an office full of AI-powered machines that are able to develop messages, track schedules and resources, and fully-automate administration.
Useful AI tasks already includes focused judgement work, designing solutions from others’ creativity, and now developing social skills and network building.
Human judgement will be needed but used differently than people might assume. We can learn to work with robots and to complement each other’s strengths, thus redefining multiple commercial industries.
Starting with the tech-savvy Japanese workplace, intelligent machines are entering the office.
