As innovation enthusiasts, we’ve seen the impact that AI platforms (e.g., OpenAI, IBM Watson, Google Cloud AI, etc.) are making in all industry verticals; look at the cover photo for this 2-Minute Thought Starter! The fear is that AI will be a disrupter to the human factor within the workplace. However, if AI is implemented in a human-centric way, it will be a powerful tool that supercharges productivity, efficiency, and innovation, amplifying human skills rather than replacing them.

We are moving from a world where computing power was scarce to a place where it now is almost limitless, and where the true scarce commodity is increasingly human attention.
Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft

Here, we share our top five design strategies for seamlessly integrating AI in the workplace without losing the essential warmth of human interaction:

  1. Human-Centric Smart Automation

    Utilize AI for routine tasks like data crunching, drafting memos, generating reports, and more. This allows the human to focus on quality control, decision-making, and bespoke adjustments – where the human touch truly shines.

  2. AI-Assisted Communication

    Deploy GPT-based AI to boost internal and external communication. Let the AI simplify technical jargon and draft pitches, and the human factor should add the empathetic touch, closing the communication loop more efficiently and warmly.

  3. Collaborative Content Co-Creation

    Use AI for brainstorming or drafting content. Then, let human creatives weave in stories and experiences for a harmonious blend of efficiency and creativity. Once the content is in a good place, leverage AI to quickly manipulate the same content to meet the needs of different audience types.

  4. Rapid Research and Data Analysis

    Leverage AI tools for data analysis and trend predictions to increase efficiency and time commitment. Get the information in multiple ways for further investigation by human perspectives. The contextual “so what” on specific business needs may require elements of subjectivity over AI-based objectivity and are best identified through the lenses of human analysis.

  5. Human-Led Employee Training and Onboarding

    AI tools like GitHub’s Copilot can be excellent guides for new employees. But nothing beats the richness of a learning culture fostered by human mentors. Let AI support, not replace, this learning environment. Leverage the AI tools to maintain and encourage continued learning while creating transparent workflows for human-based checks and balances, coaching fledgling employees to become the best they can be.
