February 27, 2024

The AI Transformation: A Closer Look

AI in the Corporate Sphere

In a recent survey by ResumeBuilder, it was found that 53% of companies are currently using AI, with another 24% planning to start in 2024. This trend underscores the urgent need for employees to develop AI skills, as 96% of companies hiring in 2024 view these skills as beneficial for candidates.

Jobs at Risk

According to TechTarget, AI is responsible for around 4,000 job cuts as of May 2023. Generative AI, which automates creative tasks like writing, coding, and music making, presents both opportunities and threats.

Specific Sectors Affected:

  1. Coding: AI programs can write code efficiently, posing a threat to coders focused on high-volume, low-quality code production.
  2. Customer Service: AI-powered chatbots are becoming increasingly capable of handling customer queries, reducing the need for human customer service representatives.
  3. Legal Field: AI could perform many tasks typically handled by paralegals and legal assistants.
  4. Education: Teachers face challenges from AI in detecting plagiarism and cheating.
  5. Finance and Banking: AI impacts finance by monitoring transactions and offering financial advice.
  6. Graphic Design: Generative AI tools like Adobe Photoshop's Generative Fill feature are changing the graphic design landscape.
  7. Engineering: AI aids in computer-aided design but is unlikely to replace human engineers entirely.
  8. Human Resources: AI is infiltrating HR, with tools for sourcing candidates and automating recruitment tasks.

Conclusion: Navigating the AI Era

The rise of AI in various sectors offers efficiency and novel capabilities. To stay relevant, individuals must adapt by acquiring AI skills and embracing roles where human insight and creativity are irreplaceable.
