Business Insider recently published the results of their research and consultation with subject matter experts like Mark Muro at Brookings Institute and Anu Madgavkar, a partner at the McKinsey Global Institute, compiling a list of jobs that will be most affected by artificial intelligence and machine learning:
Tech jobs including coders, computer programmers, software engineers and data analysts:
With its ability to accurately analyze numeric data, ChatGPT and similar AI tools are able to produce computer code faster than humans reducing the number of developers required.
OpenAI, the maker of ChatGPT indicated they are already replacing software engineers with AI.
Media jobs including advertising, content creation, technical writing and journalism:
As well as numeric data, AI is able to analyze and interpret vast amounts of languagebased information enabling it to read, write and understand text-based data.
The media industry is already beginning to experiment with AI-generated content.
For example, Tech news site CNET and BuzzFeed Media company are experimenting with AI-generated content albeit with limited success.
CNET publishers have paused their use after several errors had to be corrected.
