For anyone paying attention to recent reporting on AI and the job market, it’s easy to feel a little dismayed. There are many dire statistics floating around regarding the job-loss potential from new advancements in generative AI. Outside of the job market, there are also some existential conversations being had on how the new technology could affect things like culture and art.
These conversations are absolutely worth having, and the real-world consequences of implementing AI technology too rapidly or irresponsibly, should not be swept under the rug.
There is, however, another side to this issue—that is, the ways in which Generative AI could actually benefit the job market.
According to IBM, “Generative AI refers to deep-learning models that can generate high-quality text, images, and other content based on the data they were trained on.”
Think chatbots, image generators, etc.
Many experts point to the release of ChatGPT as a major turning point for this technology. In addition to language prediction skills and image editing software, newer generative models can also learn the grammar of coding software, molecules, and other data types.
Teaching, for example, has already been both aided and complicated by the increased popularity of Chatbots. These AI tools can be very helpful when it comes to things like lesson planning, creating worksheets, etc. On the other hand, students learned early on that they could use those same tools to help them write essays, do their homework, and cheat on exams.
The two industries that experts agree are likely to be the most significantly impacted by the use of generative AI are banking and technology. Research suggests that “banks and some tech companies spend 60 to 80 percent of their payrolls, or more, on workers in occupations most likely to be affected by the new technology.”
While these sectors are going to see a lot of changes in the next few years, the good news is that this technology cannot be ushered in or properly managed without a team of skilled human workers behind the scenes.
