In his book, The Modern Alchemy: Low-Code and AI in the Future of Work, Al-Khazraji argues that these emerging technologies aren’t job stealers; they’re creativity boosters. Here’s why:

Low-Code Platforms: Democratizing Innovation

Traditionally, app development was the domain of programmers. But low-code platforms are changing the game. These user-friendly platforms allow anyone with a great idea to bring it to life, even if they don’t have extensive coding knowledge. Imagine a marketing team creating a targeted customer loyalty app or a sales team building a custom lead generation tool. Low-code empowers individuals and teams to become innovation powerhouses, fostering a more collaborative and solution-oriented work environment.

AI: The Supercharged Partner, Not the Terminator

Let’s face it, some tasks can be downright tedious. Data analysis, repetitive calculations, scheduling – these are the things that can bog us down and stifle our creativity. Here’s where AI steps in as our powerful partner. AI can handle these routine tasks with speed and accuracy, freeing us to focus on the human touch – brainstorming new ideas, solving complex problems, and building strong client relationships.

The Human Advantage: Creativity and Collaboration

AI is great at crunching numbers, but it can’t replace the human spark of creativity. It’s our ability to think outside the box, come up with innovative solutions, and collaborate effectively that will remain irreplaceable. In fact, with AI taking care of the mundane, we’ll have more time and energy to focus on these uniquely human skills.
