Over the last 12 months, I have spoken to a number of leaders from Deloitte about, digital transformation, the future of work, and explored the latest tech trends. As AI adoption grows, how are companies working to manage risk and stay ahead of the pack? Deloitte’s third annual survey suggests how leaders’ thinking is changing as applications become pervasive throughout the organization.
Beena Ammanath, executive director of the Deloitte AI Institute joins me on the Tech Talks Daily podcast to share insights in relation to Deloitte’s latest State of AI in the Enterprise survey.
We talk about the biggest skills gaps, the most in-demand technology skills, what companies are looking for, and how employees and leaders at all levels can best prepare themselves for the new normal by prioritizing disruptive technologies like AI.
In addition to the tech skills gap and training, Beena also talks about employee anxiety about being replaced by machines, and how leaders and employees can work collaboratively to downplay the fear. Ultimately, humans and robots can and should work together.
