Read how KPMG’s foremost thinkers in HR see intelligent automation and artificial intelligence revolutionizing the workplace.
As intelligent automation and artificial intelligence continue to revolutionize the workplace, one question remains at the top of every leader’s list: what will happen to the jobs?
In this in-depth feature, some of KPMG’s foremost thinkers in Human Resources consider that question from every angle. From their perspective, the doom and gloom that dominate the digital labor debate are unfounded. Instead of massive unemployment from labor automation, there is the real potential for cognitive technologies to spur new jobs and make every employee an innovator.
The authors detail the ways in which jobs could be affected, from using artificial intelligence to enhance an employee’s abilities to using cognitive automation to replace jobs from the ground up. Then, they apply them to a hypothetical case study within Human Resources for a realistic example, coming to a tangible conclusion: the five key steps to help leaders integrate human and digital labor.
To conclude, the authors make it clear that through proper management and leadership, the KPMG point of view is that this Fourth Industrial Revolution will not be to the benefit of the robots, but to the humans.
