AI was chosen by 37% of US respondents when asked what technologies they thought would change the way they do their job over the next three years.
Only 21% of respondents said they were worried about their future employment, and only 23% believe that between 81% and 100% of their job could be performed by technology.
Technologies other than AI that are also changing the way people do their jobs include collaboration tools such as Zoom, Slack, Teams, Skype and Trello; robotic process automation (RPA); wearable tech; and augmented reality.
Collaboration tools were identified by 25% of respondents as having the capability to change their job, while 21% named RPA, which is used to automate transactional back-office processes, as a technology that will impact their job.
This is according to a recent survey on the future of work by leading data and analytics company GlobalData. The global research surveyed more than 1,600 professionals, 266 of which were in the US.
