But it could be.
According to our research across 22 job categories such as ‘Business and Financial Operations’ and ‘Management,’ we found that Large Language Models (LLMs), the backbone of applications such as ChatGPT, will impact every single category, ranging from 9% of a workday at the low end to 63% at the high end.
Forty percent of working hours across industries can be impacted.
Let that sink in.
Welcome to the era of generative AI.
Our research report ‘A new era of generative AI for everyone’ lets us take a peek into how work will be reinvented by generative AI applications.
Every role in every enterprise has the potential to be reinvented, as humans working with AI co-pilots becomes the norm, dramatically amplifying what people can achieve.
In any given job, some tasks will be automated, some will be assisted, and some will be unaffected by the technology. There will also be a large number of new tasks for humans to perform, such as ensuring the accurate and responsible use of new AI-powered systems.
Consider the impact in these key functions:
So, what new skills will you need to build?
Skills in two distinct areas become important—creating AI and using AI. This means building skills in technical competencies like AI engineering and enterprise architecture as well as skills necessary to work effectively with AI-infused processes.
For example, people performing tasks that are cognitively complex and judgment-based will need enough technical knowledge of how these models work to have confidence in using an AI tool as a “workmate.” These include domain experts who understand how to apply data in the real world (a doctor interpreting health data, for instance.)
There will also be entirely new occupations, including linguistics experts, AI quality controllers, AI editors, and prompt engineers.
Generative AI is here to stay. How will you use the technology to transform your work?
