AI May Get Your Job Done Quicker But You’re More Likely To Be Blamed For Errors, New Study Claims

AI systems have really revolutionized the tech world in so many ways.

We hear how most jobs are relying so heavily on this technology. They feel things can get done quicker and with greater ease. But wait, that does not mean you are not going to be bogged down by a great many drawbacks linked to its use.

A new study has left the world stunned for obvious reasons related to how AI might be giving your boss or manager another chance to dump the blame on you for any errors.

The research highlights how AI software is really designed to make routines simpler but the machine can really screw up on so many occasions and the blames gets shifted sadly on the user, without bosses giving it a second thought.

This is another reason why there are so many ethical issues linked to AI that continue to leave people divided in the whole business community. Close to 32% of bosses who are the ones that make the final admit to placing blame directly on employees who operate this tool. After all, it’s a machine and it can default at any given point in time.

The study also highlighted how only 26% of individuals claimed they would place direct blame on both the worker and the AI software equally, with a smaller chunk of the blame also being allocated to managers.

The research comes to us thanks to experts at TechCo who clearly admits that AI was never designed to figure out the thinking related to lousy bosses.

Today, so many CEOs of top firms continue to express hesitation in terms of using AI at their workplace. Nearly 70% even stressed in detail how their workers should refrain from its use and if they do choose to do so, they must seek permission first from the managers they’re working under.

The news comes at a time when we’re seeing so many regions including the EU, US, as well as the United Nations, join hands with companies like Microsoft to devise the right policy for its effective use. This was a long time, considering the great popularity of the OpenAI ChatGPT tool.

Today, the world’s governments are literally scrambling as they try to include the right framework to ensure the responsible and useful function of AI. They realize that AI is bringing forward some major gains for the business sector too but until and unless they don’t realize the great dangers attached, it can never be used at its best ability.

The novelty of uses is also increasing but again, questions continue to arise related to the privacy and transparency of workers.

So at the end of the day, there’s a long list of ethical-based queries that we must ask ourselves, the study adds. Does AI software require immediate attention including how to use it appropriately for research and also how to ensure the right maintenance of systems in use today?
