A recent survey has revealed that 1-in-4 Pennsylvanians fear Artificial Intelligence (AI) could take their jobs. The survey, conducted by the Pew Research Center, found that 28% of Pennsylvanians are worried about the potential for AI to make their profession redundant in the near future, while a further 36% admitted they already use AI in their day-to-day job roles. Let’s explore what this means for people living and working in Pennsylvania and beyond.
The Impact of AI on Job Security
The survey revealed that tech workers are the most worried about job loss due to AI, with 64% expressing some degree of concern about the impact of automation on their profession in the future. Other industries also expressed anxiety about job loss, with 43% of manufacturing employees, 52% of health care workers and 49% of financial services staff all citing worry over the possibility their skills could be replaced by machines in the coming years.
Pennsylvanians Facing Fear of Job Loss
Among Pennsylvanians surveyed, 28% were concerned about how AI might affect their job security in the near future, compared to an average of 22% across all states included in the survey (Texas had the highest level at 39%, while Nebraska had the lowest at 13%). Although there were differences between states when it comes to levels of worry regarding job redundancy due to automation, one thing is clear – no industry is immune from concerns related to Artificial Intelligence taking over human roles and responsibilities over time.
Using AI? 36% Admit to Doing So in Day-to-Day Jobs
Perhaps surprisingly, 36% admitted they are already using some form of AI, such as machine learning algorithms or predictive analytics software tools, as part of their day-to-day roles – suggesting that many people have embraced automation technology rather than fearing it outright; something which may explain why fewer people are expressing concerns about potential job redundancy due to AI compared to other findings from around the world on similar topics (the same Pew Research Survey found that 48% of Japanese respondents were worried).
“The results of this survey provide a valuable insight into American workers’ attitudes towards AI and its impact on their job security,” said Shaun Connell, founder of FreelanceWritingJobs.com. “It’s clear that workers across the country are concerned about the impact of AI on their jobs, and industries must take proactive steps to support and reskill their employees to ensure they remain competitive in the AI-driven job market.”
With technology advancing at breakneck speed and more companies looking towards automation to streamline processes and save costs, it’s understandable why so many Pennsylvanians are concerned about how Artificial Intelligence might replace them in their jobs eventually – but preparing for change now can help ensure you stay ahead of any potential disruption caused by automation technologies as they become more widespread across different industries and professions around Pennsylvania and further afield!
