The University of Queensland and KPMG Australia global survey Trust in Artificial Intelligence: A Global Study has revealed five key takeaways from Artificial Intelligence and human relationships.
The five key takeaways are”
- 42% of people believe that AI will replace jobs in their area of work.
- 39% of people disagree that AI will overtake their work.
- 19% of the respondents felt neutral about AI replacing them in their work.
- About two-thirds of people feel optimistic about AI’s benefits to society.
- 48% and 47% of respondents express worry or even fear regarding AI’s impact on humanity.
The survey shows that about 2 out of 5 people (42%) perceive that AI will either replace jobs or perform key aspects of their work. AI tools already help automate tasks, collect and analyze data, create graphic designs, or handle basic customer queries.
However, a similar percentage (39%) of people disagree that AI will overtake their work. Some jobs still require a physical intervention of a person and, at the moment, can not be replaced by AI.
Nearly a fifth (19%) of the respondents felt neutral about AI replacing them in their work. Some people may not be fully aware of how AI could automate their tasks.
Commenting on the survey, Cybersecurity writer at Atlas VPN, Vilius Kardelis, shares his thoughts on AI replacing people’s jobs: “As AI progresses, there is no denying that it will significantly impact the workforce. As we move forward, it will be crucial to strike a balance between innovation and ethical considerations to ensure that AI is used for the betterment of society.”
More optimism than fear
While some individuals may feel optimistic about the benefits of AI, others may feel anxious.
About two-thirds (67%) of people feel optimistic about the benefits AI can bring to society. In addition, 60% of respondents express excitement about AI technology.
Almost three out of five (57%) people feel relaxed about the future of AI. At the same time, 48% and 47% of respondents express worry or even fear regarding AI’s impact on humanity. Moreover, a quarter (24%) of people are outraged by AI applications.
