Companies That Replace People with AI Will Get Left Behind

Posted by in categories: business, employment, robotics/AI

Companies are integrating AI into their operations so quickly that job losses are likely to mount before the gains arrive. White-collar workers might be especially vulnerable in the short-term. The speed of this adoption presents an opportunity for companies to step up their pace of innovation, however — and if enough companies to go on offensive, then we won’t have to worry about AI unemployment. Adopting a bias for boldness and a startup mentality will help companies find the agility to make the most of this moment, and protect jobs as a result.

Cybersecurity in the Era of Generative AI

Posted by in categories: business, cybercrime/malcode, government, information science, robotics/AI

There’s no shortage of emerging applications and projects that promise increased productivity, new levels of automation, and cutting-edge innovation. But all too often, AI initiatives within the enterprise fail to get off the ground, and there can be vast and costly unintended consequences when this technology is applied to the wrong use cases or falls into the wrong hands.

In the case of cyber defense, widespread accessibility to generative AI tools, as well as the increasing sophistication of nation-state actors, means that threats are more personalized and convincing than ever. In an era of algorithms fighting algorithms, human defenders must effectively team up with AI to build cyber resiliency and prevent business disruption.

Presented by expert stakeholders from industry, academia, and government, this event is designed to offer practical guidance for security teams to cut through the noise and unleash the power of AI responsibly and effectively.

42 Percent of CEOs Think AI May Destroy Humanity This Decade

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

A large proportion of CEOs from a diverse cross-section of Fortune 500 companies believe artificial intelligence might destroy humanity — even as business leaders lean into the gold rush around the tech.

In survey results shared with CNN, 42 percent of CEOs from 119 companies surveyed by Yale University think that AI could, within the next five to ten years, quite literally destroy our species.

While the names of specific CEOs who share that belief were not made public, CNN notes that the consortium surveyed during Yale’s CEO Summit event this week contained a wide array of leaders from companies including Zoom, Coca-Cola and Walmart.

Proactive and predictive tools for transformation

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, business

Those well-established conventional IT systems, however, can no longer be taken for granted. Companies are accelerating their digital transformation efforts, automating, optimizing, and reinventing their business processes. The pace of change continues to accelerate: Deloitte reports, for example, that 58% of organizations have stepped up their modernization plans due to the covid-19 pandemic.

Many ERP apps are now being moved to public cloud services, such as AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud, while others are being replaced with SaaS-based alternatives, including Salesforce and Workday. The previously monolithic ERP platform is being deconstructed.

Enterprises now find themselves with a mixed-bag, hybrid cloud environment: some legacy core applications remain on premises, while new applications are cloud native and run in containers or as microservices.
