Alright, so this is wild. Check it out. In the UK, the Department for Education put out a report that found that one of the professions most at risk from AI is none other than the clergy. Yeah, it’s true. They’ve got this whole AI Occupational Exposure score, right, and the religious roles ranked 13th highest for being impacted by advances in AI. I mean, that’s some crazy stuff, man.
Now, the report is important, but they also admit that it’s open for debate, you know? They mention that while you could automate the writing of a sermon, it doesn’t mean people will actually take it seriously. After all, last time I checked, these advanced AI models and robots aren’t doing any communion with the big guy upstairs, you know what I’m saying?
Some of the other jobs that are hittin’ high ranks for AI exposure include things like telephone salespersons, solicitors, psychologists, business analysts, and management consultants. I mean, when it comes to lawyer stuff, there’s already been situations where they got in trouble for using ChatGPT to pump out made-up legal documents. It’s wild, man.
Now, on the flip side, there are positions like sport professionals and roofers that have a lower AI exposure. Seems like anything that requires good ol’ opposable thumbs is staying under the AI radar for now.
Last thing here, just for you guys – the whole report didn’t really dig into programming and software development in detail, right? But from what we could find, it’s not at the highest risk for AI exposure. Seems like the folks in that field are safe for now.
So, the AI revolution is happening, but it’s still got some kinks to work out. We’ll see where this all goes, or if some of these predictions end up being way off. Time will tell, folks. Until next time, take care.
