Artificial intelligence (AI) is an expanding feature of computer systems that simulate human intelligence to perform tasks. It has been constructed to help relieve people from the repetition and redundancy of many tasks. AI has become more recognized due to its advantages in time, expenses and precision. Everyday artificial intelligence includes Amazon’s home-helper Alexa, Siri and Microsoft Word’s spelling and grammar check. These save money and time by assisting with a variety of tasks from making phone calls, looking up recipes, playing music, and so much more. The potential results of this technological revolution excites employers and ultimately stews distress in their employees.
AI does not reduce the demand for jobs
Some perceive AI as a tool to replace existing jobs. The reality is, it only makes the jobs more interesting. And, it makes everyone more efficient. Even if the AI auto-completes a document, it must still be proof-read before being sent. Not to mention the next task in the workflow. But it does increase efficiency. As a result, at least in the legal world, makes the law more accessible to all. We can all agree that's a good thing.
AI is cost efficient
Sure, it can be an added cost. But, to get the most benefit, you should put it to work! So, review your practices. Look for ways to adapt to use that technology to make the most of the investment. And don't rely on it to do everything all the time. There is a balance between risk and reward. Be sure to build in a strong review process, too. As in all things, there is a balance.
AI is time efficient
The positives of AI include no time off, no sick days, etc. It's a reliable tool that is available 24/7. Just remember to build in that review process. Look at how you spend your time. Search out how AI can give you more time to practice law or engage with clients. Or maybe even have a bit more personal time. Because we know it can be hard to juggle it all.
