Artificial Intelligence – Are You Ready for a Braver New World?

Have you spent time thinking about or preparing for the rise of Artificial Intelligence in business? It may sound like the distant future, but the dawn of AI in business is just a few short years away. Change is inevitable. There are many kinds of changes that can transform your business environment – market, economic, political, workforce and ownership transition, just to name a few. The one kind of change that I find fascinating and perhaps a bit terrifying is the development of Artificial Intelligence or AI.
Within the near future, autonomous cars will fill the streets, manufacturing jobs will be taken over by AI powered robots, “virtual assistants” will work alongside humans in fields such as healthcare, customer service and education. Heck, I already see a robot named Stuart cleaning the floor at my local grocery store.
I consider myself old school and have been known to resist new technology. I’ve brushed off the thought that AI could directly affect my business. How could it? We offer consulting and advisory services that require real human interaction. Then I remind myself that in 1999, I did not text my clients.
It has been said that employees will have no choice but to further educate themselves so as not to become redundant. But what will businesses need to do?
To stay ahead of the change curve, business owners must face this evolution. The time is now to start contemplating and preparing for the rise of Artificial Intelligence in your business:
1. What changes and challenges from technology do you foresee that will directly affect your company?
2. Has your company begun to address the upcoming changing landscape?
3. How are you preparing for it? What ways will you re-tool your business & team?
None of us have a crystal ball, but what we can count on is that AI is not going away. Prepare for the future now.
