The uptake of AI is set to transform the UK job market ‘drastically’, says a new report.
The report, by Robert Walters and Vacancy Soft, is entitled Harnessing the Power of AI: The Demand for Future Skills.
It predicts 133mn new jobs will be created globally as a result of AI.
In the UK, up to a third of jobs will be automated or likely to change over the next few years, impacting 10.5mn workers.
What does this mean?
AI can be an opportunity as much as it is a challenge for traditional industries in the UK. Ollie Sexton, Principal at recruitment firm Robert Walters, urges the work force to “get to grips with data and digitalisation”, saying workers – and businesses – can’t afford not to.
