Over the past century, nothing else was equally pursued and feared to the depths by mankind other than the domain of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The debate of whether or not machines are capable of replacing humans began the day mankind created intelligence. But it is almost an irrefutable fact that we have aligned the compass of technology and socio-economic development with the advancement in AI and it’s hard to imagine a world without the support of machines and its diverse applications.
Humans have carried a long tradition of distinguishing themselves from nature in the anthropocentric plane, and hence signs of great hostility towards acceptance of AI in societal and day to day applications is no surprise. While the potential of AI to replace the workforce is apparent and since its advent, various job positions have become obsolete it doesn’t imply that the employment rate took a nosedive.
But, is it also possible that AI integration has opened up more employment opportunities? Has it increased the efficiency of the labor market? If it has, are people aware of it? Can general public of less scientific temper understand the benefits of this? Can one condense the complex and advanced information about it and convey it in an engaging manner, especially via a book?
Intel India and Indian School of Business (ISB) launched a report titled, ‘The Impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the Indian Labor Market, commissioned by Intel India and conducted by the Srini Raju Centre for Information Technology and the Networked Economy (SRITNE) at ISB.
Using survey results, the study assesses the size and scope of the impact of AI on businesses, presenting various insights on the shifts in the quantum and nature of employment, economic activity, and the trends in the Covid-19 induced work scenario.
Frozen Iris got an opportunity to design this Impact report that was set to launch at the All.Ai 2020 Virtual Summit.
The traditionalist imagery attached with scientific documents, white papers, annual reports, and impact reports are bland, white, and text-heavy pages loaded with illegible texts, vague stats and lurid charts. Incoherent information presented without a set style/theme makes a reader’s enagement harder and fails in informing well. This project was an opportunity to redefine this notion.
