The implementation of AI in business exceeds even one’s expectation. While previously working consumed a longer time, it becomes shorter by now.
As any advancement of technology, however, AI’s development poses a series of debates and discourses all over the globe. Identical to when the Internet became accessible for everyone, it also sparked controversial discussions.
The automation of AI in business, furthermore, poses an uncertain outcome that is gravely influential in the future. Automation can be either highly beneficial for humans or devastatingly threatening.
Considering upon its robust influence, many parties agree that there should be ethics in developing AI. Among the reasons, it is to ensure that AI development facilitates human, not destroying them the Terminator way.
To illustrate the potentials of AI in jobs and business, Jack Ma and Elon Musk’s discussion pertinent to the topic depicted both perspectives in a comprehensible way.
Jack Ma and Elon Musk on AI vs Human in Future Business and Job Seeking
Both Jack Ma and Elon Musk are the pioneers and notable figures in Industry 4.0. In this year’s August, Elon went to Shanghai to meet Jack Ma and discussed the prospective outcomes of AI development to humans’ lives.
During the talks, they constantly appeared to display antithetical views on the topic. Optimistic and pessimistic views with sound bases on the potential outcomes clouded the conversation.
Jack Ma envisioned a more optimistic future where AI would totally accommodate humankind. Besides promising a more effortless and more efficient works, AI’s on-point integration in business may no longer require humans to even work five days in a week.
In addition, the founder of Alibaba strongly believed that humans will always find jobs because jobs would most likely be continually shifting. Myriad novel, previously unimaginable jobs would emerge and those who are creative would be successful.
Elon, on the other hand, was under the impression that AI might result in calamitous outcomes if not treated correctly and responsibly. A massive unemployment, accordingly, is one of the instances.
Despite his more negative approaches in viewing AI during the discussion, Elon did not invalidate the extensive possibility AI holds. The founder of SpaceX and Tesla warned that, to some extent, AI would surely be dangerous if not treated responsibly, hinting that people should not be naive in perceiving and analyzing the reality.
