As a child, I identified the word “artificial” to playing surfaces in professional baseball and football stadiums. While growing up the word “artificial” expanded to items like sweeteners. Now as a professional the word “artificial” applies to work.
In regard to work, the word “artificial” applies to artificial intelligence. Simply written, artificial intelligence is machines thinking on their own. Machines thinking on their own present a number of anxieties in the workplace. Perhaps the most significant anxiety is the loss of work. Loss of work within factories is more than an anxiety, it is a reality. Loss of work within offices may become as prevalent as within factories. These statements apply to work within facilities but can be restated into more precise terms like functions such as FP&A.
