The news: A study from IBM reveals the urgent necessity for AI reskilling in the workforce.
Why this matters: The “Augmented work for an automated, AI-driven world” study reveals that AI won’t necessarily replace workers, but workers who use AI will likely replace those who don’t.
Perceptions of the AI-augmented workplace: There's a noted divergence between employers and employees in their view of AI’s work importance.
A global shift: The World Economic Forum (WEF) forecast that new technologies will disrupt 85 million jobs globally between 2020 and 2025—and create 97 million new job roles. IBM attributes this to a radical shift where human capital and AI technologies boost productivity to increase business value. We’re already seeing the transformation taking place.
Key takeaway: While investments in AI technologies soar, most businesses will need to come to terms with aligning their expectations on the changing roles of workers. Investments in employee upskilling will help businesses be more competitive as AI disrupts the workplace.
