Get ready for the rise of the humans

Hardly a day goes by, it seems, without apocalyptic warnings that robots in the workplace will create a dystopian destiny. The convergence of artificial intelligence, robotic process automation (RPA), machine learning, and cognitive platforms are at the forefront of the Fourth Industrial revolution. As organisations seek to streamline processes and reduce operating costs, cognitive technologies are rapidly creating a new class of digital labour.

Arguments range as to whether digital labour will remove or grow jobs but in the midst of this debate, KPMG professionals explore the ways that jobs will likely be transformed and its impact on organisations.
