“Latest UN Study: AI Transforms Work, Doesn’t Replace Jobs”

OpenAI released ChatGPT in November 2022, sparking somewhat of an AI revolution. As time went on, more and more businesses developed their own AI tools, and while some thought these tools would aid humans in their work, others were worried about its potential drawbacks. Many people thought AI would take their jobs, and Elon Musk and other tech gurus warned of the potential dangers of the new technology.AI displacing workers?

A new research by the International Labour Organization (ILO) of the United Nations, however, asserts that while AI will alter the way we work, it won’t replace people in their positions. According to a survey by AFP, the majority of jobs and industries will only “partially be exposed to automation.” According to the ILO, the majority of businesses are “more likely to be complemented rather than substituted by the latest wave of generative AI, such as ChatGPT.”

The study concludes that rather than creating more employment, technology may actually improve the quality of existing ones by increasing labor intensity and autonomy. The report also emphasizes that different locations and occupations will experience the consequences of developing technologies in different ways. It also states that women are more likely than men to experience an impact on their employment.

Sam Altman on employment being replaced by AI

In a recent interview with The Atlantic, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman stated that not all effects of AI on humanity will be favorable. According to him, many AI researchers “pretend” that their work will solely benefit people, serve as a support system for them, and not displace anyone in the workforce. That is not the case, though. Without a doubt, jobs will vanish, according to Altman. In addition, he disclosed that OpenAI was capable of developing a tool much more potent than ChatGPT, but the public would not have been ready for such a development.

He added that the public would not have been ready for the’shock’ that followed and the conclusion is pretty ‘unpleasant’ to conceive. “We could have gone off and just built this in our building here for five more years and we would have had something jaw-dropping,” he remarked. According to Altman, people need time to adjust to the idea that a potent new intelligence might cohabit with humans in the future, and ChatGPT was a “way of serving notice,” according to the Atlantic piece.
