They are not afraid of it: 70% of Chileans think that artificial intelligence will not replace their jobs.

A survey revealed that 6 out of 10 Chileans think that artificial intelligence will have a positive impact in the workplace. The main reason that justifies this answer is that 47% indicate that this technology will help the professional work. The trend is repeated in Latin America, reaching an average of 78% in favor of AI.

Contrary to what science fiction movies generally suggest, artificial intelligence (AI) is not a cause of concern for Chilean workers, according to a Laborum survey, which turned to the question “How do you think it will affect this technology at work?

When delving into the reasons that justify a positive opinion about artificial intelligence in the survey, 47% say they look favorably on AI in the workplace, because it will allow new knowledge to be incorporated that helps professionalize work.

“The truth is that people are confident that these systems will be tools to improve job development. In this sense, workers know that their work is not exclusive to technology. On the contrary, 77% declare that AI will be an ally of human talent”, he added.

However, it should be noted that people’s trust in technology is very high. In this sense, the survey reveals that 70% of respondents say they do not believe or fear that artificial intelligence can develop its own work in the future.

80% believe that it is necessary to incorporate new skills

Of course, 80% of the Chileans who responded to the study regarding artificial intelligence thought about incorporating new skills so as not to be left behind, with the constant technological changes in the world of work.

Meanwhile, when asked what types of jobs AI could take over to replace humans in the future, 75% believe the areas most at risk are technology and systems.
