THE NEXT FRONTIER OF WORK

Updated: May 2




These are the insights on AI from the Microsoft 365 Community Conference in Orlando.


We are in the next technological revolution that's changing how we live, work, and connect with each other. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a key player in shaping our future. The younger generations, who have been immersed in technology since birth, are ready to embrace this new era. For them, AI in the workplace is not a question of if, but when. Those who reject this unavoidable change risk losing out, as AI will transform the essence of work itself.

A typical day can be broken down into three main categories: Technical (the action), Context (your knowledge and strategy), and Administration (the boring bit). The forecast is that AI will first cut down the time spent on administrative tasks, helping with things like taking notes, summarising and creating actions.

As time goes by, the technical tasks will also shrink with the introduction of things like Github CoPilot which can code for you, or M365 CoPilot creating a PowerPoint presentation.

The focus will shift to spending most of our days on the context, strategising on how, when and bring in any human, cultural reference. The know-how.

This shift poses both dangers and opportunities, especially for those at the start of their career, as this know-how is experience in work the job. While AI may not always be right, its ability to be ‘usefully wrong’ can open up new possibilities for innovation, problem-solving and creative thinking that should be used by everyone.

Is your job in danger? In general the answer is no, but there is a catch: you need to lean in and accept AI since job roles will augment to take advantage of AI. By doing so, you can unlock enjoyable and meaningful work that goes beyond the mundane. AI, especially tools like Microsoft 365 Copilot, enables you to become more creative, turning routine tasks into chances for innovation. A virtual partner to bounce ideas off. Accepting AI is a must where everyone needs to keep up or catch up if we’ve fallen behind

In conclusion, the future of work with AI is not a bleak scenario of job losses and cold automation. It’s a future where our work becomes not just more efficient, but also more creative and, ultimately, to focus more on the creativity, care, communication and imagination that is best done by humans.
