Sorcero, an award-winning AI knowledge and learning platform company, has published a new white paper that examines the ways in which artificial intelligence (AI) can transform workforce training and prepare employees for the demands of a rapidly changing employment landscape. Specifically, the white paper highlights how AI personalizes on-the-job training with just-in-time learning journeys that significantly improve learning outcomes and boost productivity.
Interruptions are a constant part of the workday. Workers are constantly getting prodded by notifications from Slack, buzzes from texts, and the omnipresent, nagging knowledge that emails are piling up. These little distractions add up, and push employees further out of the flow of work than they may be aware.
How much time do we really spend looking for information at work and what is it costing?

These days, the pace of nearly everything is accelerating and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. This is certainly true when it comes to knowledge. Not only is the overall volume of knowledge doubling every two years, but it’s also constantly increasing in complexity, making it more and more difficult for people to keep up. Indeed, without computers, the Internet, smartphones, and other devices, most of us would be entirely lost.
A few weeks ago we were talking with a potential customer who seemed like a perfect fit. They oversaw a large healthcare provider, one of our first market verticals. The organization sounded like they had a great use case for Sorcero's product. Halfway through our conversation, they say, "How many people can I replace?"
Lately, there has been a lot of talk about artificial intelligence (AI), but I have a sneaking suspicion that when most people hear AI, all they really hear is, “AI--blah, blah, blah.” I get it.
That said, there’s no doubt that the AI revolution is on and that it’s widely predicted to change the landscape of work—forever. For instance, some predict that as many as 800 million jobs could be automated by 2030.
“That kind of speculation has overshadowed more nuanced conversations about how AI—more specifically cognitive computing—is being used to augment humans, not to replace them,” said Dipanwita Das, Founder, and CEO of Sorcero. “At Sorcero, we’re applying cognitive computing, to change the future of work for the better.”
