UiPath on the news a fifth of jobs could be wiped out by AI

14 June 2019

Bruno Ferreira, UKI Area Vice President at UiPath, said: “Far from destroying jobs, our latest research, conducted in the UK, has found that technologies like AI and robotic process automation (RPA) could actually help transform jobs and keep employees happy and engaged, by ensuring that mundane and admin-related tasks are carried out autonomously. For example, 61 per cent of UK public sector employees spend 30 per cent of their time every week on repetitive chores that can be automated, and three quarters of UK government employees who have say their experiences have been positive.

AI, RPA and other new technologies becoming widespread in our society is inevitable, and should be embraced positively – and implemented correctly. We believe that on one hand, business leaders must implement strategies to overcome the psychological impact of automation on their workforce, and on the other that employees need to increase their digital literacy in today’s technological age, and learn to work alongside automated systems. Because of our commitment to tackling these society changes in a responsible manner, UiPath has created UiPath Academy – an online platform providing free RPA training. Digital skills will be an enabler for career progression, paving the way for future job success.

“There were fears that computers, the internet and email would eradicate workforces, and yet it’s had the opposite effect. Nowadays, there is barely a company in the world that doesn’t rely on modern technology to some degree – and these innovations have even created jobs that didn’t exist 30 years ago.”
