Since the advent of platforms intelligence artificial as ChatGPTDALL-E2, Midjourney, among others, one of the main fears for some people is the possibility of being replaced in their jobs by machines that use this technology.
A study published by Open AIcompany creator of ChatGPTestablished that even if it is not in all cases, the possibility of facing a future in which the artificial intelligence replace some workers is real.
The document, called “GPTs are GPTs: A preliminary look at the potential impact of large linguistic models on the working market”, it was known that the occupations without any exposure to replacement are those that depend a lot on a physical activity.
Due to the inability (for now) of generative models of intelligence artificial have a physical support or a “body”, the activities that are not in danger of presenting substitutions are:
Farm Equipment Operators, athletes and sports competitors, mechanics bus and truck operators, diesel engine specialists, bricklayers, drilling rig operators, canteen attendants and cafébartenders, dishwasherelectric line installers and repairers, operators of excavators and loaders and draglines for open pit mining, helpers of carpenterspainters, wallpaperers, plasterers, plumbers and roofers, motorcycle mechanics, slaughterhouses and meat packers, among others.
Although in some of these tasks the processes can be automated through the use of robots and specialized machines, the artificial intelligence It has not yet been involved in the development of these activities. According to Open AIno tasks were identified that could be executed by a generative model.
Our findings indicate that approximately 80% of the United States labor force could have at least the 10% of their work tasks affected by the introduction of generative models, while around the 19% of workers may see at least 50% of their activities affected,” he said. Open AI.
The company indicated that the general impact of the models of language that include artificial intelligence will have an impact on all industries, albeit to different measures. However, he did state that tasks involving the data processing and information, in addition to hospitals, have a large exposure to replacement caused by this technology.
Those with the highest threat indicators are: activities related to financeinsurance brokers, processing of data and other related services, publishing industries with the exception of internet, investment funds investment and other forms of financing, live broadcasts, scientific and technical services, telecommunicationsamong others.
Total, Open AI labeled a total of 86 existing occupations as “fully exposed” to the possibility of replacing their operators with ones powered by artificial intelligence.
Although the data is focused on the labor force in USA, other countries have already advanced their response to prevent the lack of employment. Italy, for example, announced the launch of a fund for 30 million of euros that will be allocated to the training of workers with jobs threatened by artificial intelligence.
The objective of the “Fund for the Digital Republic” is to allow the development of digital skills in people who are unemployed or vulnerable to being replaced by robots or artificial intelligence.
“It represents both an opportunity to allow new entries into the world of work and to support new workers in the sectors most affected by digital transformations”, indicated the president of the Fund’s Strategic Steering Committee, Daria Perrotta.
