Majority of US and UK Workers Positive Over AI Benefits: According to new Report
The use of machines that are enabled by AI to handle tasks independently will enrich the workplace. That's according to a new report released during automatica 2018, the world's leading trade fair for robots and automation. However, many employees surveyed for the report consider the term “artificial intelligence” to be misleading because a machine cannot learn intelligently or act autonomously like a human being.
The automatica Trend Index 2018 also found that majority of US and UK workers believe AI innovations will make robots perform increasingly effectively as assistants to humans. 74% of US workers and 67% of UK workers surveyed says AI will make machines better assistants in the workplace.
70% of US employees are confident that AI will be controlled by the state. However, 74% of UK employees says it's important that AI will be strictly controlled by law.
On the question of how AI will affect the world of work, Dr. Wieland Holfelder from Google in the run-up to automatica 2018 in Munich said: “In principle, there is nothing artificial about artificial intelligence. It's made by humans for humans—so we need to maintain that spirit."
Automatica 2018 is taking place in Munich from 19 - 22 June.
