Decisions require a deep dive into your organization’s core values.
Digital labor refers to an automated workforce with capabilities to complete work that largely mirror our own abilities. These new automated “workers” use digital technologies to automate tasks human labor completes today.
And therein lies the quandary.
Various levels of automation enable capabilities we never thought possible. These technologies allow physicians to make custom treatment recommendations from an almost unlimited base of knowledge. Auditors can improve analysis of companies’ books and lessen risks as the technology reviews all past records rather than just a sample.
The banking industry also stands to benefit from these innovations. For example, the same technologies can answer calls to customer service centers and either fulfill or route them. And they may also help simplify and speed up the mortgage, home equity, and car loan processes.
This article presents options to keep tough automation decisions in alignment as much as possible, with government regulations, social and cultural norms, and company core values.
