With the notable surge of Artificial Intelligence nowadays, characterized by the growth of large language models and other generative AI tools, it is evident that the operational landscape across various industries is starting to undergo significant transformation, a trend expected to persist as AI garners greater acceptance and adoption.

In response to this accelerated integration of AI technologies into daily lives, the World Economic Forum has released a comprehensive report analyzing the anticipated impact on various professions.


Analysts assessed over 19,000 occupational tasks to determine if they relied on language. If a certain task was deemed “language-based,” it was then analyzed how much human involvement was needed to complete said task. In doing so, researchers were able to establish the most likely professions and industries to be heavily influenced by AI technologies.
