An interesting survey conducted by ISP Company Beaming in association with Opinium has revealed that the use of AI assistants has increased among all sizes of businesses in 2018 and will become threefold in the current year.
The study says that a large proportion of businesses in UK are showing a lot of interest in adopting voice assistants to help with tasks like dictation, calendar management, information gathering in coming months.
Thus, the trend is said to show a negative impact on the employment of human personal assistants and secretaries by August 2019, making companies with AI assistants more numerous than those with personal assistants.
Information on who participated in the survey, the composition of survey questions and how many respondents were interviewed is kept under wraps for reasons.
Sonia Blizzard, the Managing Director of Beaming said that companies are nowadays undergoing significant digital transformations as they are doing more with internet and using new technologies.
She added that the technology of Artificial Intelligence is becoming popular as it augments how people operate in the workplace, making them smarter and more efficient.
However, this more dependence on technology leads to a void where the basics such as connectivity and cybersecurity are often ignored which might show its impact on speed, capacity, and online resilience needed in future.
And this is where Beaming predicts that the employment of AI assistants will overtake human Personal assistants and secretaries in medium-sized companies by the end of 2020 and at small firms in 2021.
