Will chatbots and artificial intelligence kill trainers ?

Do we still need trainers? With the emergence of e-learning, Mooc, Cooc and other Spooc, and with the arrival of artificial intelligence that will open new possibilities even more effective? Contraction of “chat” and “robot”, a “chatbot” is a computer program able to dialogue with its user… So to speak that the trainer will be able to dialogue with his trainer everywhere, at any time and In an increasingly personalized exchange.

What becomes of the trainer? Already questioned by learners about the knowledge part, what may be its added value now? What is its future in the face of the GAFAM assault on artificial intelligence?

The trainer’s profession: a total challenge

Would the trade of trainer be part of the trades destined to disappear with the arrival of digital? The profession of teacher, in the broad sense, teacher, teacher … is already largely questioned by learners. Those considered “knowledgeable” see their “knowledge” challenged by the mass of knowledge available on the internet.

Artificial intelligence: indisputable advantages for training

This question, launched at the emergence of e-learning, is refreshed today by the massive use of this type of training and the arrival of artificial intelligence with its chatbots in HR (*).

It will benefit from a “personalization of the contents” by the follow-up of the cookies and the analysis of the “big data” that offers “automatically” the course of the trained internet; At the end of the course he will benefit from a “personalization of the next trainings” according to his results because the machine knows how to evaluate in “live” and he will find all his trainings on “a personalized platform” that will follow him throughout his life …

AI, a trainer partner for a new “learning experience”

But where is the human in all this? The question of the added value of the human relationship is undoubtedly the question posed today. The arrival of the AI ​​can in fact be an opportunity for the professions, all of them, to question themselves: seek to identify what the machine will be able to alleviate the current loads, imagine what it must devote its added value.

And there is no time to lose… Because we are already announcing the next wave that will revolutionize training and human development in general, that of “artificial empathy”.
