A.I Will Replace Some Jobs, Employees Need Retraining

As innovations would replace some jobs and existing employees would need to be re-trained

As artificial intelligence gains currency, leaders at top technology companies including Microsoft and IBM today said there is a need to create "new collar jobs" as innovations would replace some jobs and existing employees would need to be re-trained. 

 

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said Artificial Intelligence (AI) is moving on the right ladder and highlighted its importance in reviving the sluggish global GDP growth. 

 

IBM CEO Ginni Rometty said AI will replace some jobs, but most of us will be working with these systems. She called for the need of creating "new collar jobs" by imparting new skills to the existing workforce and hoped countries like India would see many youngsters joining a new data economy. 

 

"We can choose whether AI replaces or augments humanity at work," Nadella said, adding that it is our responsibility to have AI augment human abilities.
