The rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation is no longer seen as a threat to just menial, repetitive jobs. Already systems are being developed and deployed which have the potential to carry out work traditionally left to highly educated and skilled humans, such as doctors, lawyers and architects.
As computers become faster and analytics more sophisticated, due to advances such as machine learning and neural networks, they come closer and closer to emulating the processes of the human brain. This is by design – machine learning was conceived around the principle of teaching machines to ingest and classify data in the same way we do.
