Today we have Kathleen Walch, Managing Partner and Principal Analyst, and Ron Schmelzer, Managing Partner and Principal Analyst at Cognilytica. Cognilytica is an Artificial intelligence-based company that offers a wide range of training for people considering a move to artificial intelligence or those that want to accelerate the way they are using the concept now.
In the interview, Ron Schmelzer addressed the pink elephant in the room – whether or not AI was going to take away jobs. Some have called it the IT job apocalypse.
Recently, Federal CIO Suzette Kent said, “AI is creating more jobs than it is taking away.” Ron commented that this statement is correct, but the type of job is changing drastically.
This is the right time to take a step back from artificial intelligence and try to see where it fits in your agency’s direction. We all know that the goals of AI include is to reduce repetitive tasks and improve accuracy for large scale projects.
