This is the second story in a three-part series taking an in-depth look at each topic. When we hear the term artificial intelligence, most of us associate it with a science fiction movie. But the latest advances in technology are coming closer to making it a reality. With programs that can run accurate calculations, analyze data faster and identify trends humans cannot, artificial intelligence technologies are providing major advantages in functions like finance and accounting. But while artificial intelligence technologies are promising, most leaders agreed that good people still provide the best competitive advantage.

This modern principle is pioneered by sharing economy companies such as AirBnB and Uber but it’s increasingly being picked up by incumbent industry. The Earnings on Demand Industry Talk benefits those who aim to effectively navigate and develop the growing “on demand” sector in general, but also the business models based on this principle in particular.

Based on these estimates, we examine expected impacts of future computerisation on US labour market outcomes, with the primary objective of analysing the number of jobs at risk and the relationship between an occupations probability of computerisation, wages and educational attainment.

A Michigan man is suing a set of robotics manufacturers, alleging negligence and design defects after a malfunctioning robot killed his wife while she was working as a maintenance technician. The victim, Wanda Holbrook, performed machine inspection and maintenance for Ventra Ionia, a stamping and molding company out of Ionia, Michigan. According to court documents filed in federal court, the incident occurred in 2015, after the robot first entered the section where Wanda was working, which it was not authorized to be in.
