OpenAI Reckons ChatGPT Can Almost Definitely Make You Redundant

OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, has published a new paper outlining which jobs it thinks are most exposed to its technology.

To the surprise of few, writers and authors, PR specialists, proofreaders, and news analysts, reporters, and journalists are all very exposed.

In fact, ChatGPT reckons that writers and authors, and news analysts, reporters, and journalists all face 100 per cent exposure to the tech.

Mathematicians, financial quantitative analysts, tax preparers, web and digital interface designers, accountants and auditors, legal secretaries and administrative assistants, clinical data managers, and, oddly, climate change policy analysts are also listed as 100 per cent exposed.

“Our findings indicate that approximately 80 per cent of the U.S. workforce could have at least 10 per cent of their work tasks affected by the introduction of GPTs, while around 19 per cent of workers may see at least 50 per cent of their tasks impacted,” read the report.

However, while indicating that writers face high exposure to generative AI writing tech, the report was, in fact, penned by Tyna Eloundou, Sam Manning, and Pamela Mishkin who all work for OpenAI and Daniel Rock who is an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania.

The report said that jobs facing direct exposure to generative AI are those that OpenAI’s suite of tools could “decrease the time required to complete the DWA or task by at least half.”

The report also showed the jobs that face no exposure to its tools and, as one would expect, tradies, baristas, and farmers are all safe. Slaughterers and meat packers have also escaped ChatGPT’s clutches.

Here at B&T, we had been having a play around with ChatGPT and its ability to write news — it often didn’t go well. Safe to say, our editorial team is still alive and kicking.
