In our modern business world, enterprise should appreciate that they are living in a cognitive world.

The connected environment that businesses thrive in today requires us to think as internet as a utility and the only thing we really can be certain about is uncertainty of new technologies that enterprises should still be prepared about.

Syllabi in the universities should change stresses Martin Mirero, CIO, Huduma Kenya emphacizing the need to review the curriculum in the higher institutions of learning.

Every day, there seems to be a new piece of news, whether it is a governmental policy, technological advancement, or consumer insight, that impacts the way organizations do business. Changes move so quickly that companies are looking for new all-stars to help right the ship and steer the organization towards where it needs to go.

Although AI is already in use in thousands of companies around the world, most big opportunities have not yet been tapped.

Mirero, says the people should not freak the necessity on augmented business models. People have a unique intuition and they still need to develop new roles and continuously. “The current system of education need to be uprooted and fit it with prolonged internship that would add value to enterprises,” said Mirero.

He added that the biggest advances brought by AI have been in two broad areas of perception and cognition.

“Machine learning systems are now superior at many tasks that were once done best by humans. Reaching this threshold opens vast new possibilities for transforming the workplace and the economy,” added Mirero.

In his presentation, Mirero also stated that Machines will augment humans by performing the tasks that they are clearly better at.

To adapt this, he added that people will need to uproot the current model of tertiary education and let the primary learning environment be the workplace while still injecting the tertiary education into that.

In our modern business world, the only thing we really can be certain of is uncertainty. Every day, there seems to be a new piece of news, whether it is a governmental policy, technological advancement, or consumer insight, that impacts the way organizations do business.
