New study asks, ‘Is your business AI-ready?’

123rf.com | Copyright: pixelbliss

Despite fears that robots will replace human labor, the majority of artificial intelligence (AI) leaders (79 percent) expect their employees will work comfortably with robots by 2020, according to a new Genpact survey of C-Suite and senior executives titled, “Is Your Business AI-Ready?”

Yet, additional findings from the survey show that inherent organizational challenges may impede this expectation:

  • Companies are not providing ample resources for re-skilling and retraining of employees to handle this technology disruption.
  • Senior management is most likely to resist AI – almost one-third of respondents indicate this group resists the most, compared to a mere 5 percent of entry-level workers.

According to Genpact Senior Vice President Gianni Giacomelli, the opportunity lies in creating an organization that encourages collaboration and sets up workers for success with re-skilling and training programs. Without the proper culture, enterprises’ investments and AI will go to waste and be rendered ineffective.
