Artificial Intelligence: Paving The Way To The Future

Over the past few decades, a myriad of new and disruptive technologies have emerged into the workplace, but none quite as pivotal as the revolutionary technology of artificial intelligence (AI). Whilst there is no universally agreed upon definition of AI, it is generally understood as the development of autonomous computer systems which perform functions usually required by human intelligence, such as decision-making. When applied to the workplace, AI provides a wide array of potential, and yet, still harbours a negative perception from some as a threat to both the workforce and the job sector. Tim Johnson, CEO of Mondo, refutes this belief and instead redirects our focus to the ways in which AI ‘augments’ our capabilities, enabling us “to do our jobs more efficiently and effectively, without replacing the human component.”
