80% of professionals believe that there will be a significant change in the way they work as a result of the introduction of AI
About 80 per cent of professionals in India believe that artificial intelligence (AI) will significantly change the way they work, as reported by IANS, a partner of TV BRICS.
According to the professional networking platform, most professionals in India are ready to embrace the shift, though AI has created some uncertainty, with 60 per cent of professionals feeling overwhelmed and 39 per cent concerned that they will not be able to keep up with AI developments.
70 per cent of surveyed professionals said they want to learn more about AI, even if they don’t know where to start.
In fact, 68 per cent of employees admit to already using generative AI in their work, while 50 per cent are trying out other such AI tools.
“While getting up to speed can be challenging, it is encouraging to see people focusing on the positives that AI can bring to their working life,” said Nirajita Banerjee, a career expert.
“90 per cent of professionals in India believe that AI will become an invisible colleague in the team in the next five years and as they have freed up time, many are looking to invest in themselves by acquiring new skills, focusing on more creative and strategic tasks at work and expanding professional networks. All of these are strong career drivers,” she added.
When it comes to how AI will help advance their careers, about 57 per cent of professionals said it will make them feel more confident at work, while 43 per cent believe they will get faster promotions as they will be able to focus on other aspects of work where more important tasks need to be done.
More than half of working Indians believe AI can make their work easier and therefore increase job satisfaction (55 per cent), and help them achieve greater work-life balance (74 per cent).
Artificial intelligence is the science and technology of creating intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programmes. AI is related to the similar challenge of using computers to understand human intelligence, but is not necessarily limited to biologically plausible methods.
