What does the future of work look like? What kind of man-machine synergy will we witness in Industry 4.0? Dr CJ Meadows, Professor, Director, i2i – The Innovation & Insights Center and Head, Global MBA – Consulting Management, SP Jain School of Global Management shares her take in the APAC CIO Outlook magazine.
In the age of advanced technologies like artificial intelligence (Al), machine learning (ML), robotic process automation (RPA) and more, jobs will be redesigned for humans to take human tasks best done by us, and for cobots to do the tasks best carried out by bots and systems, writes Dr Meadows. Discussing the future of the workforce, she highlights how it will be cheaper and more effective to Diagnose the people companies already have, Develop them, and Deploy them into the new jobs — essentially 3D 'printing' a new workforce.
If you could 3D-print your workforce, whom would you print? Whomever you would print, you and they can create the future together, shares Dr Meadows.
