Artificial Intelligence and its Role in the Workplace (Episode 6) | Learning with Belvista Studios
The robots are coming... Well not quite but an intelligence is improving, which has the power to make our lives easier. In this podcast we chat about the friend and perceived foe that is artificial intelligence (AI), discussing (as per questions asked by our awesome community): 1. When designing AI, what strategies need to be implemented to ensure that machine learning learns the best, not the worst aspects of human behaviour? 2. As more tasks that were formally done by humans are done by machines, which quintessential human characteristics do you think will become more valued? And what will this look like in the modern workplace? 3. How do you see AI's effect on the "human" factor when delivering training? 4. How do you prevent AI from developing unfair bias/prejudice in its decision making? 5. How accessible will AI be for smaller/low income/not for profit businesses?
