(RepublicanView.org) – Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already being used by 10% of companies, with 43% planning to introduce it within the next year, according to new data. A survey conducted by career advice company Resume Builder showed that four in ten companies use or plan to use AI in their recruitment processes; two-thirds believe this will make hiring workers more efficient, while more than half of respondents expect AI to replace humans in hiring altogether.
According to Fox News, Stacie Haller, Resume Builder’s chief career advisor, said there is a real danger in allowing robots to control the hiring process and said people are not necessarily at their best when being interviewed by a bot rather than a human being. She added that only time will tell whether AI is doing a good job at finding the best staff.
Meanwhile, other data suggests around half of students admit to using artificial intelligence in creating essays and other work. A survey found that 48% use ChatGPT, the most popular new AI release, to complete quizzes or tests at home, and a further 53% say they use it to write essays.
Will Rinehart, a senior research fellow at the Center for Growth and Opportunity, said educators would have to adapt to a world with AI in it, adding that it is hard for teachers and professors to tell whether a human being or a robot produced a piece of work. He declared, however, that if students want to reach elite levels, “ChatGPT is not going to get them there.”
Twitter CEO Elon Musk famously called on governments recently to understand the power of artificial intelligence and to legislate to ensure it does not threaten human beings. He was one signatory to an open letter penned by several tech leaders warning of unintended consequences as AI advances. “AI systems with human-competitive intelligence can pose profound risks to society and humanity,” the letter stated. It went on to warn that nobody, including AI creators, can predict whether the technology poses an existential threat to humanity.
