Use of AI could create a four-day week for almost one-third of workers 🤖
🚀 The emergence of AI holds immense transformative potential! A recent study by Autonomy proposes that AI implementation could inevitably shift millions of workers to a four-day workweek by 2033 in Britain and the US.
💡 The key is productivity gains, and reports suggest that large-scale integration of AI could take us from a 40-hour to a 32-hour working week while preserving pay scales and performance.
🤖 By introducing Large Language Models (LLMs) like ChatGPT at workplaces, we could augment the functions of employees and make room for more leisure time.
🌍 This policy could also serve as a preventive measure against mass unemployment, and plummeting mental & physical health conditions prevalent in the workforce.
🔮 I've always believed that AI and large language models don’t just present the possibility of boosted profits or dreaded job losses. Deployed effectively, technology can fundamentally enhance our work practices and lifestyles.
🔎 The study proposes that in the UK alone, over 28 million workers could reduce their working hours by at least 10% via AI incorporation in their day-to-day tasks. Simultaneously in the US, around 35 million workers could also feasibly transition to a four-day week.
🕰 The way we view work is on the brink of monumental change. As practitioners and proponents of emerging technology, we need to consider what role we play in enabling these shifts and spreading this digital revolution beyond the confines of our own industries and into the lives of everyday workers.“Technology is the great growling engine of change,” as Alvin Toffler once said. As we charge forward into an AI-enabled future, our task is to ensure this technology becomes a tool not just for productivity, but for societal betterment as well.
