Artificial Intelligence to Intelligence Amplification
“Human intelligence will always be number one, but with machine learning and artificial intelligence you can amplify it.” Anil Kamath, Vice President at Adobe
The landscape of the employment market is experiencing a tidal wave of change. We are deep in the middle of the 4th Industrial Revolution, where Tech and Artificial Intelligence are transforming the workplace.
Today, new technology is heavily integrated within the modern working space. The development of this tech innovation has opened a mass-discussion on the future of the ‘Support’ role.
Here at Career Moves Support, we believe that this is the beginning of a harmonious relationship between professionals and technology, one that should truly be embraced.
The advances in technology shine a light on the value of humans in an ever increasingly automated world. If we consider that such developments will free up time and improve accuracy then actually the knock-on effect is a positive one, it means that we can focus on excelling in the attributes that robotics can never fully substitute, such as emotional intelligence, creativity and a natural curiosity, all of which constitute the hallmark of being human. What we can bring to the table is going to be more important than ever.
Whilst technology makes things convenient, and you can deploy cost-saving skills, anyone in a support role knows that sometimes, even the smallest of arrangements for your boss will not be solved with the click of a button – things change, at the 11th hour and you have to pull some strings and use your emotional intelligence to decipher how to make mission impossible happen at the speed of light, whilst also ensuring other factors, such as cost are not drastically impacted. The human attributes that we can bring to the table are going to be more important than ever.
Our jobs today will not be the same in 10 years’ time and the relinquished time that people will benefit from through the integration of technology into daily activities means that we will be able to better prepare ourselves and future-proof our careers, enabling us to remain relevant, explore different arenas and evade becoming extinct.
Yes, the workplace is indeed changing, and a desire to adapt and embrace the digital age is imperative to ensure you are indispensable in a consistently changing workplace.
