Which jobs will be ‘most affected’ by artificial intelligence chatbots?

Major companies such as Microsoft and Google indicate that the chatbots artificial intelligence (AI) are a co-pilot or assistant for users in general, but there are many experts who point out that this type of technology will change many professions, either by making their jobs simpler and faster, by replacing employees or by creating new professions.

Telemarketingaccountants, accountants, translators, teachers, programmers and even investors are some of the professions that studies have indicated will change as the Internet becomes more popular. AI.

The capabilities of GPT-4, the latest version of OpenAI – creators of ChatGPT – can solve “new and difficult tasks” with a “human level of performance” in fields such as mathematics, coding, medicine, law and psychology, according to a paper published in March by researchers at Microsoft – a company that has invested billions in OpenAI.

The professions most affected by language modelers.

New York University professor Robert Seamans participated in a study on how language modelers such as ChatGPT, GPT-4, Bing and Bard will affect the professions.

Telemarketing was the occupation we found to be most exposed to changes in language modeling or advances in language modeling, followed by other professions such as teaching,” Seamans notes.

The top five professions on the list are telemarketers, university professors of English language and literature, university professors of foreign language, university professors of history, and university professors of law.

Other non-education trades that were among the top twenty most affected positions were sociology, political science, mediators, and judges.

Seamans points out, however, that this does not translate into these jobs being replaced by the IAbut what can happen is that it is “complementary to the work being done”.

Another study released last week, which also looked at the “labor market impact of language models,” indicates that clerical workers are among the professionals whose careers are most exposed to the capabilities of the artificial intelligence generative, as at least half of the accounting tasks could be completed much faster with this technology.

The same is true for mathematicians, interpreters, writers and nearly 20% of the U.S. workforce, according to the study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and OpenAI.

Faster computer scientists

Seamans points out that the IA generative that would like to investigate what effect it will have on various jobs is Microsoft’s proprietary Copilot application from GitHub.

“What GitHub’s Copilot does is help software developers by suggesting ideas to them as they write code, it suggests commands and code that the programmer might want to follow. Kind of like what Gmail does in email,” he explains.

According to Seamans, this allows computer scientists to do their work faster and may even help those who are studying this trade.

A fourth study conducted by GitHub researchers evaluated the impact of the IA generative in software developers.

In this test developers who were given an entry-level task and encouraged to use the Copilot program completed their task 55% faster than those who did it manually.

While it is likely that there is still quite a while to go before the artificial intelligence single-handedly manage investors’ money, a study called “Can ChatGPT Improve Investment Decision Making from a Portfolio Management Perspective?” points out that ChatGPT is already a better portfolio manager than an inexperienced person.

The other side of the coin

On the other hand, in 2022, there were almost 800 thousand job offers related to the IA in the U.S., according to data compiled by the Institute of Artificial Intelligence Centered from Stanford University.

California was the state with the most hiring related to the. IA -more than 142,000 in 2022-and, on average, 1.5% of job openings in any of the 50 states were related to the artificial intelligence.

Asked what profession he would recommend to a teenager, Seamans said he would first advise him to seek a profession according to his tastes and passions.

“Putting all that aside, I would tell him to think about the skills we humans have and think about investing in that. Things like judgment and critical thinking. Those are skills that go into a lot of different types of professions,” he concludes. EFE
