Artificial Intelligence Adaptivity During This COVID-19 Pandemic
Automation in business, a better understanding of customer behavior, and personal experiences are a few other benefits of the vast array of Artificial Intelligence. The rich field of technology has been disrupting in different industries and shaping other technologies.
In today’s world, AI technology is not just trendy but reduces human interaction in many industries.
In the healthcare sector, the work of consulting with patients, and diagnosing by seeing their symptoms is done by AI doctor applications.
In finance and banking, AI has brought financial cybersecurity and has also been taking it to the next level. The deep learning system now spots suspicious behavior and analyses patterns and the best example is passbook machines, Chatbox for virtual assistance. The JOB which humans should do.
Automated telepresence stages are furnishing understudies in Japan with a “face to face” school graduation experience. Robots are found in any event, filling in as loud fans in any case void arenas during ball games in Taiwan. As far as information, AI is now demonstrating potential in early endeavors to screen disease rates and contact the following.
The sudden outbreak of coronavirus is even worsening the situation not only our health but our JOBS too. AI technology will take over most of the working part of humans, and only a little human strength will be required.
Many jobs will be lost.
Will the jobs ever be recovered?
Yes, but slowly.
Right from its inception, every human being has become dependent on AI, like puppets now too lazy to do any work. AI has made life easy for humans in many ways; but in a country like India, which has more than 135 crore people, a lot of whom are already facing unemployment, AI is going to make things worse. However, this technology cannot completely take over as human skills can’t completely be erased and removed from the scenario. AI cannot penetrate into industries like a PR manager or HR manager of an organization. It hasn’t reached the milestone where it can accomplish all jobs. At the same time, if we do not adopt this technology, then we might lose out on quality and perfection, and as a result production rates might differ.
Coronavirus and Role of AI
AI has been effective against COVID-19 but can be and is becoming an advantageous asset. Its utilization is hampered by an absence of information, and by an excessive amount of information. It can do any work that humans cannot do in this situation. For example, in restaurants, robots might be seen sanitizing the spaces and serving customers the food. So, there is lesser contact between people and fewer chances of the spread of coronavirus.
AI Replacing Humans
Apps like “Coronavirus Positive cases near you” are decreasing human effort, hence leaving us jobless. Plus, some business analytical tools have been developed to help get out of this economic loss. Tools step in and the requirement of humans goes out.
Adoption of AI technology can come with many pros and cons during and after this COVID-19 Pandemic:
Why Should We Adopt AI?
After the adoption of AI technology, we can kickstart the product by clicking on the start button or loading some programs. This way, we can produce faster products without any human effort. Effortless functionality makes it more reasonable and plays an essential role in cost reduction.
This enhanced automated RPA saves time and reduces the cost in just a three-phase life cycle: data input, validation, and adjudication. Data Input and Validation claim entry that is automated from multiple sources and validates them accordingly. Finally, the adjudication determines whether to accept that information from the different sources or to deny them. That adjudication also helps in risk detection by checking some fraud detection algorithms. Because of this automated functionality, Automated RPA is sturdy and the main asset in the reduction of costs and risks.
Why Do We Hesitate?
- All AI technologies are costly: High installation, repair, and maintenance cost.
- It does not include the replication of human work: Machines can work well, but some finishing touches can never match that of humans; this can cause variations in quality.
- There cannot be improved with experience: If we want to change some designs, then we need to reprogram the machine.
- Unemployment: Because of their faster work and fewer human efforts, requirements cause unemployment.
Do We Have A Choice?
A big no!
Humans would ‘have to’ include AI in normal life no matter whether it’s wanted or unwanted. The biggest reason for this is security. In order to avoid future pandemics like coronavirus, it has become imperative to minimize human interactions. Yes, it will result in reduced employment for humans, but lives are more important than money. We need to curate other ways of employment and generate other sources of income.
At last, although AI’s utilization has so far been relatively constrained, the pandemic and the reactions to it might quicken the digitalization of the economy, along with the move to more prominent robotization of human work, the re-shoring of creation exercises, and developing business sector predominance by a couple of substantially advanced stage firms that are replacing humans. In that capacity, the developments in AI which are a result of current emergencies may expect society to gain quicker ground to set down suitable systems for the administration of AI. The day is not far where we would see robots doing all the work which humans used to do.
