Posted by in category: employment

In the past three years, the workplace has changed dramatically.

According to a recent McKinsey survey, 98 million American workers now have the option to perform their jobs remotely. And 77 percent of respondents to a recent Deloitte survey cited greater workplace flexibility as a top reason to switch jobs.

Yet the exact same proportion, 77%, told Deloitte they have felt burnout at their current job. Another study found that about half of the fulltime employees surveyed feel disconnected from their coworkers.

A.I. is not all hype. It’s the ‘fourth industrial revolution playing out,’ says Wedbush’s Dan Ives

Posted by in categories: employment, internet, robotics/AI

And so it begins. I’ve seen one job already on glass door that requires knowledge of AI and I only barely started looking. I wasn’t even specifically looking for AI jobs. I’ve seen other articles where ChatGPT can be used to make thousands in side hustles. So far, so good. I’ll have to check out those job hustles and see if I can make use of those articles. Just one job is enough for me. One article claimed some jobs will pay you as much as 800k if you know AI.


Generative artificial intelligence is all the rage now but the AI boom is not just all hype, said Dan Ives from Wedbush Securities, who calls it the “fourth industrial revolution playing out.”

“This is something I call a 1995 moment, parallel with the internet. I do not believe that this is a hype cycle,” the managing director and senior equity research analyst told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Asia” on Wednesday.

This week, on the Lex Fridman Podcast, he offered advice to young people who want to stand out in what he describes in this “freeze-frame moment” with A.I.—where tools like ChatGPT and GPT-4 are suddenly available and “everybody is kind of staring at them wondering what to do.”

How AI is reshaping demand for IT skills and talent

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, employment, ethics, governance, robotics/AI

AI is quickly becoming an essential part of daily work. It’s already being used to help improve operational processes, strengthen customer service, measure employee experience, and bolster cybersecurity efforts, among other applications. And with AI deepening its presence in daily life, as more people turn to AI bot services, such as ChatGPT, to answer questions and get help with tasks, its presence in the workplace will only accelerate.

Much of the discussion around AI in the workplace has been about the jobs it could replace. It’s also sparked conversations around ethics, compliance, and governance issues, with many companies taking a cautious approach to adopting AI technologies and IT leaders debating the best path forward.

While the full promise of AI is still uncertain, it’s early impact on the workplace can’t be ignored. It’s clear that AI will make its mark on every industry in the coming years, and it’s already creating a shift in demand for skills employers are looking for. AI has also sparked renewed interest in long-held IT skills, while creating entirely new roles and skills companies will need to adopt to successfully embrace AI.

Companies That Replace People with AI Will Get Left Behind

Posted by in categories: business, employment, robotics/AI

Companies are integrating AI into their operations so quickly that job losses are likely to mount before the gains arrive. White-collar workers might be especially vulnerable in the short-term. The speed of this adoption presents an opportunity for companies to step up their pace of innovation, however — and if enough companies to go on offensive, then we won’t have to worry about AI unemployment. Adopting a bias for boldness and a startup mentality will help companies find the agility to make the most of this moment, and protect jobs as a result.

A.I. could ‘remove all human touchpoints’ in supply chains. Here’s what that means

Posted by in categories: employment, robotics/AI, transportation

Generative AI in supply chains will be able to forecast demand, predict when trucks need maintenance and work out optimal shipping routes, according to analysts.“AI may be able to totally (or nearly) remove all human touchpoints in the supply chain including ‘back office’ tasks,” said Morgan Stanley analysts.

But “Generative AI, in my mind is, once in a lifetime kind of disruption that’s going to happen … so there are going to be losses of jobs in the more traditional setting, but I also believe it’s going to create new jobs like every prior technology disruption has,” said Navneet Kapoor, chief technology and information officer at shipping giant Maersk.

Artificial intelligence is likely… More.
