Artificial intelligence is the future – everybody knows. But the way it is perceived makes the real difference in determining how far it is welcomed.

On one hand, artificial intelligence eases the jobs of human beings by automating processes, notifications, calculations and even conversations. But on the other hand, when people hear about its growing demand and development, they start fearing that it is going to take away their jobs. Is it true that robots will soon take away the jobs of human beings?

Organizations are looking forward to liberate their employees from the monotony of repetitive work by increasing the use of AI. At the same time, this is bringing about insecurity in the minds of many employees who fear that they will no longer be needed. What these employees need to realize is that they are human beings and their scope for development is in their own hands. If every person starts striving to increase his/her expertise areas and expanding his/her skills set, they will always have another opportunity awaiting them if their existing job becomes obsolete. For instance, if AI is used for fraud detection in online transactions, humans can use this facility to filter out fraudulent IP’s and block them right away before customer complaints take a hike, without having to check the data of each customer manually.

As technology takes care of routine tasks, people are required to take this as a positive change by adapting to it and up-skilling themselves. The AI technology has numerous other benefits. Melissa Crooks, a professional content writer for a US-based mobile app development company, writes about the 7 positive impacts of artificial intelligence in one of her articles.

We don’t need to fear AI. We need to be able to rule over the ‘robots’ and use them in ways that make our lives more convenient. After all, that’s the whole point of technological advancement, isn’t it?
