Mr. Deignan has earned a reputation for learning to work with technology to advance his career. He is considered an expert when it comes to technological developments and applications.

With the latest advancements in artificial intelligence and automation in business, anxiety amongst the workforce is running high. However, Robert Deignan feels that there is a minimal threat to this technology overtaking the current workforce. Rather, he feels there is opportunity for employees to expand their skill set and cement their positions within their current companies. In addition, he feels that by embracing this new technology and learning how it can enable each person to become more efficient at their jobs actually is an asset rather than a hinderance to the business world.
At present, machines tend to be good at simple manual labor tasks that involve repetitive motions; such as folding laundry. Those jobs that involve training, decision making and the ability to be flexible require extensive programming and data; which is a hinderance and expense many companies cannot afford. In addition, those positions that require interpersonal skills cannot currently be replicated by technology and will be safe from automation take over. Even if these advances do come to a head at some point, most human beings will still prefer speaking with another human rather than a robot. Thusly, Robert Deignan advises that the demand of the market will dictate whether a machine’s capabilities will actually be applicable within society. He advises to keep these details in mind when mulling over the effects and implementation of automation technology.
