The makers of ChatGPT contributed to research looking at the impact of large language models (LLMs) on the job market. According to the study, 80% of the workforce will experience changes in their work through GPT models. Finally, they list 34 jobs that AI has no influence on.
Research from OpenAI, OpenResearch and the University of Pennsylvania provides interesting insights. Still, it’s important to consider that the authors have quite a stake in the AI market.
According to the paper, the following professions are not affected by AI:
- Operators of agricultural machines
- Car window fitters and repairers
- Bus and truck mechanics and diesel engine specialists
- cement masons and concrete pavers
- cutters and trimmers
- derrick operators
- employees in the hospitality industry
- excavator operator
- Installers and repairers of electric cables
- Operators of excavators, loaders and tow ropes
- floor layer
- foundry mold maker
- Stonemasons, stonemasons and tile and marble setters
- Painters, wallpaperers, plasterers and plasterers
- Meat, poultry and fish cutters
- motorcycle mechanic
- Operators of paving, paving and tamping machines
- pile driver
- spouts and rollers
- Manufacturer of railway equipment and maintenance equipment
- Repairers of refractory materials
- oil and gas
- Butchers and meat packers
- Tire repairs and changers
- Oil and gas pump operators
Professions, which the paper says will not be replaced by AI, are mainly based on manual labor and often require specific skills.
AI is a tool, not a substitute for human labor
The paper suggests that for 80% of the US workforce, at least 10% of their jobs will change as a result of the rise of AI. In 19% of all jobs, more than 50% of the work is compromised by ChatGPT and similar programs. This does not directly mean that work will be replaced, but may also indicate that AI complements or supports work.
According to Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, we should see AI models as tools and not as something that can completely replace human labor. “It’s waiting for someone to give input,” Altman said in an interview with ABC. “This is a tool that is heavily controlled by humans,” Altman said.
