For more than 20 years, advances in artificial intelligence have been viewed through the lens of competition between humans and machines.Leaders, technologists, futurists and employees in every industry rightly wonder how AI will affect our workplaces, societies and lives. The scale of AI's impact is hotly debated, and often boils down to a single question: Could machines replace us?Others consider such fears overblown, and predict that intelligent automation will lead to a utopia populated by intuitive machines.Machines can't do everything, so the solution, according to researchers, is factories in which robots and humans work in tandem.Leaders in every sector – including government, industry and education – will need to plan thoughtfully to minimize the adverse effects of AI. Among the most important tasks is ensuring that young people have the skills to excel in an AI-dominated marketplace, and that those already in the workforce can adapt to new requirements.Robots will not become people's officemates overnight; only a small percentage of current jobs are susceptible to full automation.
