Abstract or project description
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become prevalent in many aspects of society, with the capability to complete both basic and complex tasks. With its ever-increasing capabilities, it has the potential to transform a large number of jobs. There have been many studies on the capabilities of AI with results showing that AI can evolve to solve many problems and do many tasks. There have also been studies showing AI helping doctors diagnose patients. Moreover, there are AIs like Chat-GPT, which are free for the public and can write essays, compose music, and create art. But how will this new surge of AI change how people work or use AI in a work environment, are there some things that AI can never do, and if so what are they? By analyzing the effects of AI on multiple fields, the outcome of these questions may become clearer. Then synthesizing these together we can get a general outlook on the future of the workplace as AI becomes prevalent. The general trend has been that in the short term, AI will cause a job deficit and in the long run it will increase productivity and job opportunities.
