Special Topic: Artificial Intelligence


The special graph this month looks at roles with the most exposure to A.I. This categorization comes from the Pew Research Center, which ranked occupations into high, medium, and low exposure by job duties. The roles in the graph may see reduced employment through automation, or may see enhanced job duties and skills using A.I. techniques.

How A.I. will affect workers in these roles will vary widely. Many of the positions are clerk and assistant roles in a variety of fields, who may have routine research and categorization tasks done for them by A.I. assistants. Certain

drafting, design, and science occupations are also likely to use or complement automated creative processes.
