Artificial intelligence is poised to take over any number of tasks related to supply-chain management. But what will happen to the humans who were doing those jobs?
No link of the supply chain is untouched by the promise of AI. The technology can outperform humans in its ability to acquire, interpret and output the masses of data that are available to global supply chains today. But what exactly can AI do? And what kind of tasks are still best performed by human beings? On this episode, we seek clarity on the subject of AI with Frederic Laluyaux, president and chief executive officer of Aera Technology. We’ll learn about the prospects and the limitations of AI, try to understand what today’s automated systems are actually doing, and speculate on the kind of training and knowledge that the human worker of the future will need to possess, in order to exist alongside the machine. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
