AI won’t replace many jobs, but one demographic is in unemployment danger

Summary: A United Nations study suggests that while generative artificial intelligence (AI) won’t replace most jobs, women may be disproportionately affected by job losses due to AI automation. The study finds that women, who are overrepresented in clerical work, could see an estimated 7.8% of their jobs in high-income nations potentially affected by generative AI, compared to an estimated 2.9% of men’s jobs. Policymakers are urged to address the socioeconomic impacts of AI technology and consider regulatory measures. Another study by the McKinsey Global Institute also found women are more likely to lose jobs due to AI proliferation.
