There is a growing body evidence that shows that the adoption of; cloud computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence is on pace to grow exponentially over the next 10 years and beyond. And, yet there still some resistance to embrace this type of technology. Many of today’s leaders understand the difference between staying put or adapting to achieve business success.

Automation’s Biggest Enemy: Cultural Resistance is the title of an article published by Industry Week that delves into the resistance, which in turn, prevents some companies from adopting artificial intelligence and reaping its benefits. It reads in part;

“While customers perceive that artificial intelligence (AI) will allow brands to deliver what they want when they want it, there remains a widespread lack of understanding among enterprises of the potential benefits for AI to solve real-world business problems. The biggest corporate challenge to implementing an intelligent business strategy is cultural resistance (49%), according to a new research report, “AI2020: The Global State of Intelligent Enterprise” by IQPC’s Intelligent Automation Network.

What’s Behind The Resistance To Artificial Intelligence?

Some of today’s forward-thinking companies understand the power of cloud computing and its impact on cost containment and have embraced business applications— like time and attendance, that has embedded artificial intelligence. For example, ATS TimeWork OnDemand was expressly designed with this mind— this robust application will propel your business operations and help your company keep pace with advance in technology.

The Industry Week article goes on to say; “AI will automate some jobs, particularly the dirty, dangerous, or dull work that people don’t want to do – everything from sewer reconnaissance to repetitive factory work. The skills needed for future employment include critical thinking and problem solving, good communication and teamwork, leadership, initiative, creativity and the willingness to leverage the current technology”.

In other words, artificial intelligence is not here to replace your job— it will help you do your job better.
