Artificial Intelligence - Taking or Creating Jobs?
The diffusion of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to significantly influence
human life over the next decade, but to what extent will it replace the humans
it seeks to help? Humans often look to the future in a linear fashion, perhaps
unaware of the exponential change that technology will bring. Here at GemPool,
we’ve seen the market edge closer and closer towards a more mature AI focused
industry in Ireland, with the potential for exponential growth. The question
has arisen as to whether humans and robots can co-exist in our current working
environment. Will AI make human labour redundant? If so, what jobs are at risk?

truly become a global tech hub and, with the industry thriving, 2018 is set to
be another exciting year within the ICT sector in Ireland. As a recruiter in
this industry, I just don’t understand why I spend most of my days speaking to
men. Each day I source for developers
and each day I ask myself the same question, where are all the women? At GemPool, we cover so many areas within the ICT sector and each area
