Is your job safe as automation advances?

HyperScience CEO Peter Brodsky shares his views on how machine learning and automation will affect data entry in the future. With software now able to eliminate the need for time-consuming, manual data entry, will these jobs become obsolete?

Brodsky also speaks on how AI will impact future software development, how jobs will be affected by automation, and entrepreneurial tips for anyone considering starting a startup.

HyperScience is eliminating manual data entry

HyperScience uses machine learning and automation to read and enter data, allowing for faster input and removing costly, manual processes. More insurance, major world governments, and Global 3000 companies have begun using this tool to eliminate the need for manual data entry.

The Future of software development

The way software is written will fundamentally be changed by artificial intelligence and machine learning. Within the next five years, there may be software that still doesn’t use AI, we ask how development will be affected.

Jobs an automation

There’s a belief that automation will destroy jobs, but Brodsky disagrees. He says the right to a job doesn’t supersede thousands of people’s rights to good service, but never in history have we been able to make jobs go away.

We discuss how automation will remove the need for manual data entry, but should not affect people’s ability to find jobs.

Listeners who are interested in HyperScience, a company that removes the need for manual data entry by automating handwritten data, can follow their blog for announcements and more information.

Key takeaways:

  • The way future software will be written will mostly be impacted by machine learning and AI.
  • You don’t need to understand the “how” in machine learning, just the result you want to achieve.
  • Although automation will remove the need for manual data entry, it doesn’t mean job demand will decrease.
