Jobs and Artificial Intelligence: New Opportunities in the AI Era

22 January 2024

Artificial intelligence is changing the business world, opening up new possibilities and offering unprecedented opportunities. The increasingly rapid development of AI technologies will bring enormous changes in the way we perform our most normal daily activities and in the kind of business we’re going to do.

These transformations could lead to a radical redefinition of the concept of work itself: artificial intelligence could mark the end of some professions hitherto considered pillars of the economy. Like the industrial revolution and the agrarian revolution before it, human work will change. We are at the dawn of an era that challenges us to reconsider the concept of traditional work and imagine new patterns of employment.

Bologna Business School, rooted in the University of Bologna, research excellence in robotics and new technologies, offers up-to-date study paths dedicated to AI applications. In an area of strong technological development, the BBS network allows its students to get in touch with leading companies, thanks to meetings with managers and company visits that run alongside all the School’s study paths.

It should be emphasized that artificial intelligence will not necessarily and immediately lead to a complete replacement of all human jobs. Rather, in many areas we will see already are seeing-a confluence of AI and human expertise, with AI supporting many operations. We are already seeing how AI can improve the efficiency of many processes, automating repetitive tasks and rapidly analyzing masses of data to provide faster and more accurate solutions than humans. By monitoring and preventing safety issues in the workplace, improving product quality, and optimizing resource management.

We must also consider the risks: artificial intelligence will make some profiles obsolete, leading to increased unemployment in some sectors: jobs that are physically demanding or involve repetitive tasks could be automated.

Sectors such as healthcare, transportation, and manufacturing, but also many others, will see a redefinition of roles and the need to retrain shortly.

At the same time, artificial intelligence will create new jobs: while some roles will be eliminated, others will require new specialized skills in the use and management of AI itself. New AI-related professions will emerge: developers, data analysts, and customer experience specialists with an AI focus.

BBS, always at the forefront in studying artificial intelligence, already offers Professional Master’s degrees in Artificial Intelligence and Innovation Management and in Data Science and Business Analytics and, for the executive area, Executive Master’s degrees in Artificial Intelligence for Business and Business Analytics and Data Science.

Those who choose to study a course focused on artificial intelligence applied to business will have vast job opportunities. The skills acquired will be able to be used in a variety of sectors: finance, healthcare, logistics, and manufacturing. Staying current by studying artificial intelligence and its practical translations means being able to break into new work fields as a leader, positively influencing the business world.

In conclusion, artificial intelligence is changing the business world. Beyond the risks to be considered, the opportunities this revolution offers are within reach: professionals who develop skills focused on AI-related innovations will have a competitive advantage in the business market and will be able to lead companies through this new, huge, and unstoppable transformation. Bologna Business School, with its top faculty and its network of world-leading AI companies, is the right place to develop new skills and knowledge.
