It seems that quite recently, a couple of decades ago, we just learned how to send each other esemeski, stopped arguing about computer newspeak, as we have already become bloggers and advanced users, posting entire series from our personal lives on the social network
Now we also easily order a taxi on Uber and are not even interested in how the car appears at the entrance in a matter of minutes. When we habitually read news feeds in the morning, we don’t think that they have been compiled individually for us by bots, who have quite successfully replaced some of the news reporters on the Web
The office unfolds its detective digital stories. In broad daylight, employees find out that the sword of Damocles of reduction is hanging over their favorite profession because of some robots. Two years ago, most of the lawyers in Sberbank were cut down and replaced with robots, who now regularly and without errors write statements of claim.
The most respected experts say that within 10–20 years, automation and digital services will cause the most mass professions to disappear, while others will change beyond recognition. Even if you reassure yourself that the most popular professions in Russia are a seller, a security guard and a driver, the anxiety still remains.
And unmanned vehicles, and the robot Fedor, which works not only on Earth, but also in space? According to a study conducted by the international consulting company BCG, a third of the Russian population sees great risks due to the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) and is afraid of losing their jobs.
These seemingly progressive transformations require a psychological restructuring of the personality. The encounter with the unknown never passes without a trace and causes fears both for one's own future and for the future of children
Research carried out in the context of developed countries shows that society has divided into those who are optimistic and ready to meet robots or are immersed in this work, and those who are skeptical about automation or, in extreme cases, are pragmatists, believing that the upcoming digital we must seriously prepare for the revolution and, first of all, change ourselves intellectually.
How robots and artificial intelligence will change the future
Now is the time to turn to the opinion of recognized experts in the field of human interaction with artificial intelligence. The leaders of the Center for Thinking the Future of Work Malcolm Frank, Paul Rochrig, Ben Pring consider it their duty to “thoroughly understand how the work will be carried out in the future, to understand how new technologies will shape our capabilities, what threats will have to be faced and how they will interact man and machine. " To this we must add the answer to the question that worries everyone - how will robots and artificial intelligence change our life and work?
In their new book, What To Do When Machines Start Doing Everything, authors Malcolm Frank, Paul Rochrig and Ben Pring keep readers optimistic from the opening pages, stating that everything will be fine.
Artificial intelligence is a kind of harbinger of a new industrial revolution, which, for those who manage it correctly, will be able to create significant economic growth
And robotic automation of processes will take away only those areas of work that a person considers difficult and monotonous.
Ask yourself a simple question: haven't our computers here and now made us more productive? Of course, yes, so you don't have to be afraid of reality, you have to do everything to become successful digital personalities. Experts, in turn, suggest not only how to dispose of their own future in the era of artificial intelligence, but also how to achieve universal prosperity in a world where everything will be made by machines.
Today, what is happening at the World Economic Forum (2016) called the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is happening on the basis of machines called "intelligent systems". These new machines are always on, always learning, always thinking, without any doubt they will soon become a direct challenge and opposition to the knowledge and experience of even the most advanced professionals in their field.
Calling for a faster realignment, researcher Karla Swischer recently said in a science forum: "Silicon Valley is full of big minds chasing small ideas." It remains to take this statement for granted and focus on big ideas, directing new digital technologies to the development of the social sphere, healthcare, education, management, insurance, tourism. Ultimately, money management. The inspiring example of John Stein, CEO and founder of Betterment, where robotic consultants now manage more than $ 50 billion and target $ 20 trillion worldwide, suggests that there are immeasurable levels of AI use. Most importantly, higher standards of quality of life will be created based on available goods and services.
Will the cars push you back?
Of course, we can endlessly talk about the global, but every person has the right to ask the question whether the machines will push him aside personally. And he will be right. The authors of the book, without denying that many types of employment will be "completely automated", assure that "the vast majority of professions, new machines will only complement and protect activities. It is unlikely that at least one teacher or nurse will lose his job due to the fault of artificial intelligence. On the contrary, these professions will become more productive, efficient and more enjoyable, without routine. People will come to see AI as a reliable colleague."
Calling us to work together with intelligent systems, professionals led by Francis Malcolm offer 5 technologies that will be effective in the future:
- Automation, information processing using AI.
- Equipping with meters of products and human actions.
- Look at the robot as a colleague.
- Opening up entirely new markets with machines.
- Application of AI to invent new products, services and industries.
Big data companies will be able to achieve success in many areas based on this model (efficiency plus invention). The breakthroughs will be those companies that are the best at making big data usable.
The developers are confident that on this basis, “banking will become more efficient and personalized, healthcare will become more transparent and efficient, with much better results. Manufactured goods will be more interactive, intuitive and reliable. The food industry will become less wasteful and of better quality. Education will be deeper, with an individual approach, and management services will be renewed and cost less."
On the territory of the digital economy, it will not be those who create new machines that will win, but those who figure out what to do with them
Against this positive background of moving forward in alliance with AI, it must be said that jobs associated with intellectual work will not only be freed up, but also replaced by millions of new jobs. By the way, even their approximate names won't tell you anything today.
Using new tools to expand, deepen your work will help you achieve the next level of performance. Get smarter, partner with new intelligent systems
Malcolm Frank and his co-authors presented a model of how to defeat a bot and become a "better man." In order not to lose in the future in the professional ring, it is necessary to improve the following skills: analytical thinking, social skills, production skills. Pay attention to learning, inclusiveness, written communication, interpersonal skills, language skills, ability to work around the world. Now it has become obvious that without special and deep training, people will not be able to compete with automated intelligent systems.
Senior Manager for Happiness and Other Future Professions
Authors of the book “What to do? When machines start to do everything,”write:“In alliance with AI, we will soon see a new wave of abundance in areas such as financial services, insurance, healthcare, entertainment and education. But for this it is necessary to prepare fairly, on the basis of AI it is necessary to build new industries and create new jobs.
Today, the new economy offers a host of majors that were previously hard to imagine, including Social Media Consultant, Search Engine Optimizer, Integrated Network Engineer, Digital Prophet Consultant, Visiting Hacker, Content Curator, Senior Fortunately Manager.
Everyone is familiar with striking examples when robots replace surgeons during high-tech operations or schoolchildren independently create unique products on 3D printers. In recent years, automation has literally conquered Sberbank, which has always been associated with queues of citizens performing routine deposit operations.
Now SBER (this is how the logo changes) is a modern company that has its own artificial intelligence laboratory Sberbank AL, where a model for recognizing customers' faces is being implemented, and a smart speaker with a voice assistant Varvara has been announced.
Perhaps, here you can put an end to and begin to prepare intensively for innovations in your workplace. One of the leading practitioners of AI, Hammond, considers its widespread adoption in the work environment inevitable: “I don't believe there is anything in the way of working with AI. All computing resources are already there. "
