Artificial intelligence is no longer an uncommon term in today’s world, though it has been around for years, but much more popular now.
The launch of OpenAI’s ChatGPT rocketed generative AI onto the radar of many people who hadn’t been paying much attention or felt it wasn’t relevant to their lives.
Recently, the chatbox which uses machine learning to respond to user prompts, is helping workers write cover letters and resumes, generate ideas and even art in the workplace and more.
According to experts, artificial Intelligence may actually have the power to positively impact workers’ daily lives and skill sets, and even improve the overall work economy.

AI also has the potency to point out some issues people might overlook. It can be spotting inaccuracies in text, checking code or even circumventing biases and prejudices workers may not even be aware they have.
According to Anna Salomons, professor at Utrecht University School of Economics, Netherlands, AI can interpret data impartially, and provide a more detailed, big picture analysis.
The technology is far from perfect, but can currently lay the foundation for workers to see outcomes and solutions outside their personal experiences, opening up opportunities for impartiality and inclusion across myriad fields and sectors. And experts say the AI will only get better at this. However, he notes that humans still need to correct them.
AI can be the personal assistant you need
One of ChatGPT’s main abilities is that it can function like a personal assistant – given a prompt, it generates text based on natural language processing to give you an accessible, readable response. Along with providing information and answers, it can also aid knowledge workers to analyse and expand their work.
“It can help you brainstorm and generate new ideas,” says Carl Benedikt Frey, future of work director at Oxford University.
Carl cited an example that in his own field of academia, he’s seen it test for counterarguments to a thesis, and write an abstract for research. “You can ask it to generate a tweet to promote your paper,” he adds.
“There are tremendous possibilities.” For knowledge workers, this could mean creating an outline for a blog and a social media post to go with it, distil complex topics for a target audience, plan a business-trip itinerary in a new city or predict a project’s cost and timeline.
Adding new jobs and careers
Since AI came onboard, one of the major worries about AI is that it will take workers’ jobs at a staggering rate. Though this is having effects to some extent, experts assure that there could only be a switch in career, and creation of new job opportunities.
Industrialisation and automation will lead to entire new industries from cars to computers, and added new jobs from drivers to web designers in the process.
Pushing workers into AI fluency
While some workers are diving into the technology wholeheartedly, others may find it scary to begin engaging with AI. Yet generative AI will be in the workplace – and experts say its prevalence will push workers into using the technology, so they don’t fall behind.
As AI becomes a more core part of the workday, AI expert says this push into fluency means workers will be better equipped to utilize it as a supplement to their current skill set. Familiarity with this technology also set them up to grow and develop those skills quickly.
