Up to 80 percent of workers could see jobs impacted by AI

March 28, 2023

A new research paper claims that a staggering amount of employees could see their careers impacted by the rise of ChatGPT, a shockingly intelligent chatbot released in November. They also found that about 19 percent of workers may find at least 50 percent of their duties impacted by GPT, or General-purpose technologies. Researchers also found that higher-income jobs will likely have greater exposure to GPT, but that it will span across almost all industries. Researchers argued that 80 percent of the US workforce could have at least 10 percent of their work tasks affected by the introduction of ChatGPT. At the other end of the spectrum, more low-paying jobs like rail maintenance workers, cooks, mechanics, floor-layers, meat-packers and stonemasons had no exposure.
