27% of jobs at high risk from AI revolution, says OECD

    Published on:

    According to the OECD Employment Outlook 2023 report, approximately 27% of jobs in OECD nations could be vulnerable to the impact of AI, necessitating the development of long-term policy frameworks to govern its use in the workplace.

    The organization expressed concerns that increased automation might result in job losses for human workers, particularly in Eastern European countries, which face the greatest exposure to this risk.

    While the 2023 Employment Outlook study by the OECD suggests that AI has not yet significantly affected jobs, this could be attributed to the early stages of the AI revolution.

    A survey conducted last year by the OECD revealed that three out of five workers were concerned about losing their jobs to AI within the next decade. This number may increase further due to the emergence of generative AI technologies in recent years.

    The discussion surrounding AI ethics and the potential replacement of humans in the workforce has gained traction in the public domain over the past year. White-collar professionals worldwide have grown increasingly apprehensive about the risk of job displacement, especially as organizations announce plans to integrate AI technologies into their operations.

    On the flip side, proponents argue that instead of replacing individuals, AI has the potential to enhance the efficiency and accessibility of various occupations, encouraging workers to embrace AI technologies rather than reject them.

    Furthermore, as AI deployment continues to expand globally, the OECD has emphasized the importance of international cooperation to ensure a consistent approach that supports inclusive employment markets.
