Abstract

Global trends are shaped through disruptive innovation and the new technology of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) represents a big part of it. The aim of the research paper is to assess the impact of A.I. on global trends, by offering a macro-perspective upon the industry environment, economy and employment and a micro-perspective upon finance, marketing and management. The practical approach is conducted through qualitative methods of research, based on purposive sampling. The effects of A.I. in a company once it is deployed will be explored in-depth, i.e. the different make-up of the workforce population, a flattened hierarchy and the need for employee democracy etc. The research paper will conclude by emphasizing how machines can help people thrive by creating an A.I.-friendly environment for people and a people-friendly environment for A.I.
