Inna Kuznetsova, President and CCO at INTTRA, the largest neutral electronic transaction platform, software and information provider in the ocean shipping industry, has revealed how she envisions artificial intelligence (AI) will impact the global supply chain.
In the interview with Port Technology — part of the AI and Automation series, Kuznetsova has theorized what might change in logistics to support studies done by top research firms.
McKinsey Global Institute has found that up to 800 million global workers will lose their jobs by 2030 and be replaced by robotic automation, while Gartner has presented evidence that suggests that by 2020 AI will automate 1.8 million people out of work, but it will create 2.3 million jobs.
Kuznetsova said: “We say in IT that anything that can be standardized can be automated, and a lot of processes in logistics, in shipping, in ports can be standardized and automated.
“It's a good thing, human beings shouldn't be working in cold and dangerous conditions, it's good that we will be able to get away from routine jobs, monotonous jobs, those are the jobs that will get replaced in the first place.”
