Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to have a multi-pronged impact this year. First of all, AI will have a major impact at the workplace. This will in the long run affect employment, with retooling of job profiles and a reassessment of the desired skills. However, at present it will affect companies’ talent recruitment more as they will need to do a complete data backed analysis on what different functions to address this year. The interesting this is that this recruitment will not be driven by the technologists alone, but by specific domain experts. There has long been a debate on the return-on-investment (ROI) in the use of Big Data. This is set to be resolved with the use of AI. While cyberattacks have unfortunately already become more common, their severity is set to further rise, ringing in the alarm bells. AI will need to be transparent, provable and explainable for it to be relevant to all kinds of stakeholders. While USA remains the dominant power in such tech, China may soon take over. The likes of Canada, Japan, Germany, the UK and the UAE are also there in the pipeline. The onus on responsible use of AI won’t lie on the prerogative of tech companies singlehandedly, but will be a shared need.
