Artificial Intelligence: It’s not stealing your jobs

In a world where artificial intelligence (AI) is being talked about at every turn, it’s little wonder people get nervous, envisioning a world run by robots and worrying that AI will take our jobs away.

  Reassurance will be gained both personally and in a business sense once businesses acknowledge and accept the prevalence of AI and the important role it plays within today’s society.

It’s critical for businesses to make a commitment which puts both their clients and customers in the driving seat, giving them control and quashing any false claims that AI will replace humans in a work environment.

With 1.6 million global subscribers under our belt, there’s a real opportunity for us to find a way, through AI, to connect these subscribers and empower and benefit each business with consistent improvements and advancements in technology.

The truth is, AI advancements aren’t going to slow down any time soon, so rather than sticking their heads in the sand, businesses need to learn to adapt to this growth, seize the opportunities and think of unique ways in which AI can benefit their customers and clients.

Artificial Intelligence for Insights into Regulations

Budget 2018 announced that the Government of Canada would be doing a review of its regulatory stock and this was the first time to our knowledge that we've ever done a review of our regulatory stock.

The opportunity for applying AI to regulation is broad, because at this state of where we are, AI is a very powerful tool for taking data complexity, large data, complex environments and providing insights.

So when they're doing their stock review of regulations, as the Cabinet directive asks them to do, these are about tools to help regulatory policy analysts do their jobs better.

We rapidly filter regulations by names, clusters, degree of, and trends in prescriptivity, and outdated technology, and even, we’ll try to interact with a chatbot.

So we decided let's give a tool, using artificial intelligence, that allows you to get information that you can after digest and use, in order to do things like modernizing of them, and automate the process of the update of the regulations.

So we've developed a supervised classifier, with thousands and thousands of training documents going into it, that let us assess a probability that a given regulation is targeting a given industry or sector of the economy.

We actually were able to correctly predict, just solely based on the text of the act, using a very simple procedure, 77% of challenged acts were correctly predicted.

The public sector wants to become a digital sector and I think that's really where we're starting to see a tremendous amount of leadership, and we're seeing a lot of excitement coming from the private sector to help us out.

And I think the technology leaders that are here today, and those that are trying to really get their great ideas and their technology to help us make a difference, we're now receiving that, and we're asking for that partnership.

We do need to start in small bite-size pieces, right, so pick a few data sets, let's create some automation around them, let's share them, let's access them, let's leverage the technology available to us, let's do some, you know, really good sort of algorithmic insights and see what happens.

Infographic: The Jobs Artificial Intelligence Will Take Over First

We’re poised for the biggest transformation in the world’s workforce since the industrial revolution, and it’s all thanks to AI.

Half of the jobs could be taken in some sectors, although this will probably make way for jobs that don’t yet exist, meaning employment opportunities will still be available.

Monotonous tasks prone to human error can be completed more quickly and accurately by automation, and in-depth research can be conducted quickly, giving humans more time to spend on the narrowed-down results.
