Artificial intelligence (AI) is a bit of a buzzword these days. You don’t have to surf the internet, watch TV or skim your email inbox very long to see some technology company touting its AI capabilities. But what does that even mean? What is AI?
If you’re like most people, AI is a relatively mysterious and abstract concept to you. It may even frighten you, bringing to mind the evil robots depicted in many futuristic movies. So when you hear about AI-driven solutions for HR and benefits, it can be difficult to separate hype from reality.
Confusion around AI stems largely from the fact that AI is often loosely or poorly defined—if defined at all— leaving a lot of room for myths to persist. This e-book tackles five common AI myths to help you better understand this technology and its potential impacts in the workplace:
Myth 1: AI is a new concept
Myth 2: AI doesn’t really exist
Myth 3: AI is too complex to understand
Myth 4: AI is built to replace humans
Myth 5: AI has no place in HR and benefits
Yes, AI has become a big buzzword in the business landscape. But make no mistake, AI is very real, and we’ve only scratched the surface of its potential. As an HR professional, you have a tremendous opportunity in front of you. Fortunately, you don’t need to be an expert to harness the power of AI. But you do need to know enough to have a vision for how AI can affect positive change within your organization today, as well as in the future. Hopefully, this e-book serves as a good starting point for you.
