- John Hawksworth, Chief Economist at PwC UK, talks about our recent research analysing the impact of automation on jobs in the UK and other OECD countries. We explore which industries and types of workers are likely to be most affected, but also consider the potential job and productivity gains from technological progress.
- How AI can enhance our memory, work and social lives– by Tom Gruber, the co-creator of Siri. He shares his vision of how AI can help us achieve super human performance in perception, creativity and cognitive function.
PwC briefings and articles
- Our Emerging Technologies Briefingsgives a high level overview of the emerging technologies, including Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Process Automation and Machine Learning
- AI, as a true change agent, is coming, and in many ways, its early rumblings are already being felt. This article herelooks at how some people are eagerly adopting AI and integrating it into new tools, whilst others will be more cautious or even oppose the changes it brings to their life or work.
An open mind will be the biggest asset in the near future, as the technology advances and we continue to experiment with how to use AI to solve problems—in our personal lives, professional lives, and society at large. Those who think practically and critically will ride the waves of these advancements instead of being left behind.
- We have also teamed up with Forbes and Fraunhofer (a global leader in emerging tech research) to publish some research and thought-leadership on the impact of AI.
This was referenced in our lunchtime briefing and can also be found on the interactive site on the AI Impact Index. We’ve been working with our partners Fraunhofer, a global leader in emerging technology research and development and Forbes, to identify the most compelling examples of potential AI applications across each sector’s value chain. We then designed a framework to assess the degree and pace of impact of each. In total, we identified and rated nearly 300 use cases, which are captured in our AI Impact Index.
- This is a great article from the Harvard Business Review on The Business of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning– a very comprehensive look at what AI and Machine Learning can do today and its potential
- How to stop a robot from turning evil –an original mini drama published by the Guardian, is obviously a work of fiction. But the fears behind it are very real, and have led some of the biggest brains in artificial intelligence (AI) to reconsider how they work.
