MANILA – Firms embracing artificial intelligence should not lose sight of their responsibility to their workforce and the public while they benefit from new technology, an outsourcing company official said Tuesday. Companies should ensure truth and privacy in collected data and retool their workforce so that they can work with AI, said Accenture Philippines managing director Lito Tayag. “Businesses are looking to capitalize on AI potential but they must also acknowledge the increasing impact it has on human lives. There is a new obligation and new opportunity to engage people in a different way,” Tayag said. “We need to re-imagine work, we need to pivot the work force, we need to align the workforce according to this business model,” he said. 70,000 additional jobs seen this year as industry braces for AI BPOs must prepare for inevitable AI, says Pernia Artificial intelligence can create high value jobs, said SAP Philippines president Claus Andresen. “Jobs loss is not the case, it actually creates new opportunities, new value added tasks to enrich their lives and the companies they work for,” Andresen said.
