27pc of jobs at risk from AI says OECD report

About 27 per cent of jobs in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries could be at risk from artificial intelligence (AI) revolution and there is a real need to consider longer term policy frameworks on the use of AI in the workplace, the the OECD Employment Outlook 2023 says.

OECD is a 38-member bloc, spanning mostly wealthy nations but also some emerging economies like Mexico and Estonia.

High-skill occupations, despite being more exposed to recent progress in AI, are still at least risk of automation. Low and middle skilled jobs are most at risk, including in construction, farming, fishing, and forestry, and to a lesser extent production and transportation, the outlook said.

While firms’ adoption of AI is still relatively low, rapid progress in the technology, falling costs and the increasing availability of workers with AI skills suggest that OECD countries may be on the brink of an AI revolution, according to the Outlook.
