22% of Employees Are Regularly Using AI at Work

Ever since AI broke onto the scene, it was only a matter of time before people started using it to get things done at the workplace. A new report released by McKinsey’s AI focused department, QuantumBlack, revealed that AI use is already becoming commonplace in organizations around the world, and further growth could come faster than might have been the case otherwise.

This is based on a survey of just under 1,700 individuals that McKinsey conducted. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that 79% of the people that responded to this poll stated that they are using AI to some degree in either their work life or their home life.

22% went so far as to say that they are frequently using AI specifically in the work place, indicating that this brand new form of tech is here to stay with all things having been considered and taken into account. Other surveys conducted by separate entities revealed that 70% of firms are using generative AI to up their creative potential.

Workers who are based in North America appear to be leading this charge, with a 28% adoption rate in the workplace so far. Europe comes in second with 24%, followed by the Asia Pacific region with 22%. China is lagging behind here, since just 19% of survey respondents that hailed from this East Asian nation stated that they are regularly using AI to complete various tasks that were assigned to them by their employers.

One might expect that tech oriented industries would be the fastest to adopt AI, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Rather, a combination of tech, media and telecom companies are at the top of the list with 33% because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up facilitating their needs in broad strokes.

Financial services came in second with 24%, followed by business, legal and professional services with 23%. It will be interesting to see where things go from here on out as AI continues to grow.
