Edgar Perez works with billion-dollar private equity and hedge funds with subject matter expertise in quantum computing, artificial intelligence and deep learning, cyber security and financial regulation.
It is appropriate to say that no organization embodies the “risks” and expectations around Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications better than Amazon.
A number of people blame the company for disappearing retail jobs; at the same time, the firm’s recruiting organization can’t find enough computer science graduates and entry-level warehouse workers. Furthermore, the company wants now a second home outside Seattle with up to 50,000 new jobs.
That is a clear example of how the advancement of artificial intelligence (which now involves Deep Learning) will increase productivity, create new demand from current and new customers and, ultimately, create completely new categories of jobs.
We don’t have to look that far back to see this pattern over and over throughout history, Perez concludes. The automotive industry destroyed the jobs of everyone who looked after horses, yet those people didn’t go unemployed for long. They took new jobs, making or selling something else, something better.
Perez has addressed thousands of top executives around the world with programs on artificial intelligence, deep learning, quantum computing, cyber security and financial trading.
