Professions at Highest Risk from AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is causing concern due to its potential to automate jobs, particularly among white-collar workers. A recent study conducted by the British Ministry of Education reveals that AI has the capability to automate 10-30% of professions. Some of the positions under threat include telephone sellers, lawyers, psychologists, teachers, and market merchants.

The impact of AI-based chatbots, such as Chatgpt and Google Bard, is significant as they can perform routine tasks, operate 24/7, and interact with multiple customers simultaneously. The study identifies managerial consultants, financial managers, accountants, and psychologists as the most affected professions.
