BRK Strategies recently released an in-house funded research-study that explores Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the specific direction in which it is driving future innovation. The study expounds on what it means for AI to be the “destiny of our future innovation” for a wide variety of industries and careers, especially as it relates to a multifaceted, human workforce.
“BRK Strategies is an employer who helps other employers,” said study author, Benny Kinsey, MBA. “My company screens and fosters highly qualified veterans to ready them for the workforce, once they return from service. Our company at the forefront of tackling unemployment, and a pioneer of human-powered businesses. We can already see what AI will mean for the future of businesses, their employees, and the workforce in general.

AI can elevate our workforce, or it can cripple it. I wrote this report as a way to begin a topographical discussion of the various human factor issues we’ll face in the future.”
Kinsey breaks the exploration down into three general subcategories, with detailed research into specific economic theoretical processes throughout. From the report:
Quality and Design
“Certainly, change is upon us and moving faster than we ever expected in the last century, but then comes the thought of what do we do with all of the people that will be replaced with this AI revolution that is termed as the ‘Industrial Revolution 4.0’? Our government will need to support the change much like what Europe is doing right now in retraining people to effectively reenter the workforce as an equal contributor. Legislation will be required to put that foundation in place, both time and money will need to be invested to get it set and ready.”
“The next element we need to consider is time. How does it affect us, what is the cost of this technology to bring to market, and can the consumer afford this in the price they are willing to pay?”
The Manufacturing Economy
“When we speak of where we are Now vs Tomorrow with Artificial Intelligence, we must ask the question, what is the highest price associated with AI or defect that would be needed to protect the consumer? A defect that would cause injury or even death to the consumer will be something that needs to be addressed through design, capability, and reliability. How reliable are these machines and if they fail, what does failure look like?”
The Human Element
“There are three (3) basic behaviors in human beings for survival: Self-Preservation Instinct, Reproductive Instinct, Social Instinct. Ten (10) characteristics of a human being include: Integrity, Courage, Humor, Intelligence, Creativity, Emotions, Kindness, Discipline, Generosity, Self-Awareness, Freewill, and the ability to Love. Key traits within this very simple 3:10 matrix model is not probable for a machine to replicate and replace people.”
