In today’s world, artificial Intelligence (hereinafter is called AI’s) occupies the major place in life of general person. It indicates that the society is thriving from a technology based environment to technology enabled environment. The integration of A.I. in working environment makes job easy, efficient and effective however it is a stern truth that while doing so it also reduces human intervention thus posing a direct threat on human jobs. A.I. is capable of solving unstructured problem with zero defects or a minimal defect which is the main reason that large giants companies (i.e. IBM, Dell Technologies, ODM Direct, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Accenture) are coming forward and participating in machine intelligence implementation. As per the Report of Task force on Artificial Intelligence dated 20th March’2018 “1000 firms are investing in A.I”.

Indian Government footsteps towards A.I.’s

Let’s look into steps taken by Indian govement for policy, structure, guidelines & rules regarding A.I. in India. Now-a-days, GoI has taken various steps to drill down the A.I.  resources.  The government on the recommendation of NITI Aayog (The National Institution for Transforming India) a premier think tank of GoI developed a National strategy on Artificial Intelligence under which a task force on Artificial Intelligence has been formed under the purview of Ministry of Commerce & Industry. GOI has taken steps towards A.I. development which are as follows:-

Initiatives in 2017

  • AI Task Force was formed by the Commerce and Industry Department, Government of India (GoI) that focuses on India’s economic transformation.

  • Invest India and the UAE Minister for AI signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU); and
  • NITI Aayog, and Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) initiated collaboration to set up ICTAI in Bangalore, Karnataka.

Initiatives in 2019

  • A new national program for the development of AI was announced in the Interim Budget 2019; and
  • NITI Aayog launched AI 4 All Global Hackathon to promote awareness and develop solutions to address the infrastructure challenges, without compromising on the data privacy while training the AI algorithms.

(iv) Best Investment Opportunity Discovery: – It processes the vital information in Machine intelligence mechanism and drive out best results on circumscribing limits resource & constraints.

(v) Signature, Image & voice recognition:- Approvals & authentications of cheques, registry and power of attorney done by the AI’s Technologies

Requisite or Skills required for Financial Jobs after A.Is

As per NASCCOM prediction, 9% Indian Workforce will be engaged in entirely new jobs which is not exists on today and 37% which radically changed the skill sets at the end of 2022.

i. Updation of Tech skills: – After AI’s atmosphere Technical skills will also become the core knowledge area along with the other basic skills. Those people who are technology upgraded only get chance to win the battle.

ii. Soft Skill sets over shadows the Hard skill sets:- As most of the part of work is done by machine intelligence then people gains a better chance to get selected for job who has better soft skills i.e. communication skills, e-mail writing, drafting skills etc.
