Re: AI: Seizing the Prize
I think there's a tendency to conflate "AI" and automation.
Using artificial intelligence doesn't necessarily mean that jobs performed by humans will be done by machines instead - AI can be incorporated into the tools/machines/processes that humans are using.
For example, using AI to help determine inventory won't replace the people needed to approve the orders, make the payments, pack & transport the product, and stock it on the shelves - but it could be used to help predict market demand, cost of materials, more granular transportation costs (e.g., accounting for changing costs of fuel, seasonal impacts on transit time, etc.) and other variables that could impact the bottom line.
