"For some people AI brings with it a certain unease. They believe that it somehow devalues human worth and threatens jobs. In our experience this simply isn’t the case."
Senior Technology Delivery Lead, Advanced Technology, Accenture
"AI will give rise to new jobs for human employees, who will be employed to train AI systems to make sure they run optimally. The goal will be to drive more authentically ‘human’ and personalised interactions between man and machine."
Testing Services Lead, Accenture
"In the age of intelligent automation, success will come to businesses with the right skills, the right development culture and the right focus on testing and quality."
Talent and Organisation Lead, Accenture Strategy
"For me, the key to successfully integrating AI into the workforce is to think about people first. We should consider not only how we can use technology to innovate, but also how it can be used to create new roles that people will want to do and which will allow them to fulfil their potential."
