Despite the high grades and forecasts that generative artificial intelligence will change society, its influence on jobs is not yet felt, according to the recent global survey conducted by Nash Squared. The study was attended by 322 technical managers around the world, of which 51% “to some extent” introduced generative AI into the processes of their company, and 21% uses it much more actively.

The report shows that the real cases of the use of generative AI are diverse. Most companies are still experimenting with technology and conduct pilot projects in various fields. However, 39% of those respondents who introduced AI report that the technology had a slight influence or did not have any influence on their organization.

In most cases, generative AI is used as a tool for increasing personal productivity: for research, accelerating the creation of documents or marketing materials, as well as the implementation of administrative tasks.

This data contradict the forecasts of the EY consulting company about the influence of AI on jobs. EY analysts previously stated that the technology should revolutionize productivity and stimulate innovation in all sectors. And other analytical companies sprouted mass dismissals, since the work of many employees can be completely replaced by artificial intelligence tools.

Gartner research company has so far only predicted the moderate influence of AI on IT expenses, since companies now prefer to limit themselves to pilot projects to test the technology, but do not implement it completely.

In the meantime, Microsoft continues to conduct programs for evidence of the concept to convince customers of the advantages of their Copilot technology.

According to the Nash Squared survey, 54 percent of respondents believe that large companies have not yet proved the business targeted of mass investment in generative AI. Budget restrictions and fears about improper use of tools are also significant factors with which organizations have to be considered.

The influence of AI on jobs was also insignificant. According to the global survey, only one in ten companies reported a change in working roles, and only 1% of managers see the full replacement for living employees.
