Required competences to use AI in the workplace
Research literature identifies a range of implications of AI for skills needs (McKinsey, 2018):
– Demand for advanced technological skills such as programming will grow rapidly. There is also a lack of sufficient understanding of technologies to lead the organization through the adoption of automation and AI.
– Increasing demand for key skills and competencies: social, emotional, and higher cognitive skills, such as creativity, critical thinking, and complex information processing, basic digital skills.
– Demand for physical and manual skills will decline but it still will remain the single largest category of workforce skills in 2030 in many countries.
– There are expected declines in the need for basic cognitive skills, particularly the basic data input and processing skills used by data entry clerks and typists and in a range of back-office functions.
