The digital forum learns how workplaces are changing
Digital technologies are reshaping the workplace, experts said at the Shanghai forum.
In just a few short years, machine learning algorithms have grown for use in the majority of industries, according to a 12-year survey conducted by Deloitte.
This is the epitome of the increased use of AI innovations and applications today, said Han Guanghui, partner of Deloitte China, at the “Enterprise Digital Transformation Summit Forum” at the Shanghai Science Hall.
He highlighted current technological trends, including the industrialization of artificial intelligence, the liberation of supply chains, the machine data revolution and the reboot of the digital workplace.
About a century ago, Henry Ford invented the assembly line for mass production, making vehicles the mainstay of modern transportation. “In the near future, we will industrialize AI to meet today’s demand,” he said.
Han also proposed the concept of the future office.
“Digital technology will enhance the on-site work experience as the office becomes a hub for collaboration, innovation and meetings,” he said.
Since highly uncertain market fluctuations can become the new normal, he suggested that companies grasp the latest technological trends, focus on strengthening core competitiveness, and achieve “resilient” development.
This year, China’s 14th Five-Year Plan clarified the main tasks and directions of digital transformation.
A new cycle of scientific and technological revolution and industrial change will promote the digital transformation of companies and strengthen the dominant position of companies in technological innovation.
Qian Feng, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, said, “In the future, China’s digital transformation should rely on the industrial Internet, deeply integrate modern information technology and realize the development of the manufacturing of green and low-carbon processes and digital intelligence. “
