We are in the middle of a massive shift in our businesses and workplaces. Talking about the future of work and its relationship with your career, you cannot skip the topic of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

These days, the use of automating various processes and channels in some modern organisation is perceived as one of the major factors in shaping the future of the workplace. Artificial intelligence is sure to create and facilitate the change in human labor when it comes to everyday transactional tasks.

With this change, there are new opportunities for your career and better result at your workplace. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), companies will spend as much as $57.6 billion on artificial intelligence by 2021.

In this post, you will learn how the five(5) ways artificial intelligence will change your career.

#1 Higher Level of Productivity

An excellent algorithm can make decisions faster and provide important data to make timely decisions and give you faster results.

Artificial intelligence will help eliminate human errors, especially in critical and time-sensitive industries. This will significantly improve output quality and increase efficiency in productivity.

Even a better cybersecurity system will be necessary to protect primary and sensitive data in ensuring a stronger edge over competitors.

#2 More Innovation

With the introduction of more artificial intelligence into our workplace, humans will have to migrate to jobs that machines cannot do in other to balance the result in our workplace. This will undoubtedly push humans to be very creative about our jobs.

There will be rapid innovation, and high efficiency in humans as whatever we do will be fuelled by insights, thorough check, and by data provided by algorithms. Creativity will be highly required of any employee, and innovation will be pushing beyond human imagination.

#3 Decentralized Workforces

Artificial intelligence will help ease multitasking. You don’t need to be present at a particular place or busy with the task before you can get it done. This way, you can quickly move to other tasks you need to do, especially if you have a lot on your plate.

With AI, mobile technology, and readily available internet access, employees won’t need to be in the same location, and remote jobs for employers are typical these days.

For instance, an employee travels out to seal a business deal, and something comes up at the office. He only needs to get across to his directors through the Augmented Reality (AR) for a better meeting.

#4 More Collaborative Workforce

For those organizations that have workers across all parts of the world with different languages they understand, it can get very difficult passing a message across to the different staff in your organization as an employee and also difficult for the employees to work together efficiently.

With the use of AI, workers will easily understand each other in real-time conversations and communication will be made easy, for the “doubting Thomas” they can cross-check with localization services like The Word Point to ensure the right thing.

AI is meant to change the nature of work, the AI focuses on the task and work involved in every task which will make humans focus on the results and growth of the organization.

#5 Advanced Data Analytics

The dynamics of various jobs will change. AI serves both the business owners and those looking for jobs as both are searching for the perfect fit, as relevant analytics are leveraged, both can focus on what matters most and what works for them leaving the work to AI to pick the right candidate.

For example, we have a recruitment software provider called iCIMS partnering with Google in helping job seekers find jobs directly through the search engine. This is possible with the help of Google’s AI and machine learning attributes.


As we observe this rapid change in our workplace, people need to get ready for the massive changes ahead of us and get more innovative and creative, invest in technologies and skills that will rule the future.
