“100 percent of jobs, 100 percent of industries, and 100 percent of professions will be affected by Artificial Intelligence in the next five to ten years, By 2020, companies using AI will take 1.2 trillion from competitors who don’t. Every day, we see or hear another mind-boggling statement about the impact Artificial Intelligence will have on the future. As consequential as these statements are, the truth is that nobody can predict just how profound this emerging technology will be. For example, just look at Amazon. No one could have foreseen that what started out as an online store could have grown to be one of the world’s most powerful and valuable companies in the history of the earth, or more specifically, how the “Amazon Effect” would grow a supporting ecosystem comprised of manufactures, logics, and even suppliers like the cardboard box industry—all of which have greatly benefited from Amazon shipments.

What we can be certain of is because of new emerging technology like AI, the rate of change will only increase. And the need for human intelligence, creativity, and ingenuity will be even more valuable and in demand in the future. However, here in lies the paradox—that AI technology is not only fueling the pace of change but will also make us more intelligent.”
