Intel India head Nivruti Rai on Tuesday said people should take the advent of artificial intelligence as an opportunity to reskill themselves and rejected the notion that automation would replace humans with bots.
Speaking at an event, jointly organised by FICCI and the Telangana government, the Intel India country head said, “Many people argue that with the advent of Artificial Intelligence, our people will lose jobs. No. I do not believe we will lose jobs, we will create different kind of jobs.”
She added “Who will identify where can AI be leveraged? It’s us. But, that technology is absolutely critical, because everything that we do, use, wear is going to become smarter tomorrow and impact the lives, including our health,” she said.
Ms Rai went on to emphasie on the importance of re-skilling oneself instead of fearing newer technologies such as Artificial Intelligence.
Ms Rai also predicted that the 5G network would be key for AI as 4G will fail to handle the amount of the data that will be transmitted after boom in smart devices.
