Digital disrupters using AI

Penny Brooks

4th January 2018

If you have access to FT for Schools, this collection of articles about the impact of Artificial Intelligence in real workplaces is worth a look.

From improving logistics in warehouses, to better recruitment, to apps reducing the need for medication in healthcare, to wifi-enabled tractor cabs making farmers able to predict yield from their fields and so sell at the best price, there is much here to disrupt the way in which businesses work. 

If nothing else, have a go at the interactive Can a robot do your job, and then get students to see how much of the job they aspire to could be automated. The result for teaching seems to be that some of the job could be done by a robot, but most of it couldn't - good news?
