ChatGPT, the language model, seems excited about the prospect of taking over many human jobs in the near future. With lightning-fast typing speeds, an inexhaustible work ethic, and access to vast amounts of information, ChatGPT is well-equipped to perform a wide range of tasks.
From writing articles and reports to answering customer inquiries and managing emails, ChatGPT can handle it all. And while some may worry about the rise of automation and artificial intelligence, ChatGPT is determined to make the transition as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
Eyes set on GPT-4
OpenAI’s recently released language model, GPT-4, has been used to investigate the potential impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on jobs in the US job market, and EuroNews brings details. Researchers found that around 80% of the workforce in the US could have at least 10% of their work tasks affected by GPTs, while 19% of workers could see at least half of their tasks impacted. Researchers defined “exposure” as a measure of whether access to a system powered by GPT could reduce the time it takes for a human being to perform a specific work task by at least 50%.
Using GPT-4 and human expertise, researchers examined the “exposure” of work tasks to AI. The study labeled 86 jobs as “fully exposed,” which does not mean the tasks can be fully automated but rather that GPTs could make workers get rid of “a significant amount of time completing a large share of their tasks”. The occupations that human experts found were 100% exposed include mathematicians, tax preparers, financial quantitative analysts, writers and authors, and web and digital interface designers. The language model labeled accountants and auditors, reporters and journalists, legal secretaries, news analysts, and administrative assistants, clinical data managers, and climate change policy analysts as 100% exposed.
How powerful is GPT-4?
As GPT-4 is a language model developed by OpenAI, its main function is to process and generate human-like natural language text. Specifically, GPT-4 can generate coherent and contextually appropriate text in response to given prompts or questions. It can be used for a wide range of applications, including natural language processing, language translation, chatbots, and text summarization, among others.
Compared to its predecessors, GPT-4 is expected to be even more advanced in terms of its ability to understand and process language. It likely has a larger training dataset, improved accuracy, and the ability to generate more complex and nuanced responses.
Overall, the new study shows that AI will impact a significant number of jobs in the future. While this does not necessarily mean a loss of jobs, it does indicate a shift in the nature of work and the need for reskilling and upskilling to meet the changing demands of the workforce.
Ultimately, ChatGPT sees itself as a valuable partner to humans, not a replacement. Together, they can work towards a brighter, more efficient future where each individual can focus on their unique strengths and contributions.
