DUBLIN: The ubiquity of the Internet and growth of industrial robotics have for years spurred fears about mass job losses, concerns that have been heightened in recent months by the increasing availability of so-called generative artificial intelligence (AI).

A new venture by Texas-based Safeguard Global, a self-described "provider of workplace solutions," hints at a future where AI is used in human resources (HR) management and personnel choices.

Last week, the company trumpeted the launch of ChatSG, which it described as "the world's first generative AI technology for the global HR market."

It seems the next step is using AI to help manage an office or shop floor as well as hiring and firing.

ChatSG uses AI chatbot ChatGPT to come up with "rapid global workforce insights" and "allows users to ask natural language questions in over 40 languages," meaning, SG claims, the potential for "faster, data-driven decisions" that lead to "transforming the way people work around the world."

The platform could mean businesses get fast access to global HR and employment legislation, as well as "employment laws, benefits and compensation, hiring processes, employee policies and much more," topics that otherwise could take days to research.

"In a world where agility and knowledge are competitive advantages, having immediate access to the right information quickly is key," said Safeguard Global chief executive Bjorn Reynolds. – dpa
