Survey Exposes UK Public’s Apprehensions Regarding AI’s Effects on Job Security

A recent survey conducted in the UK has unveiled a notable public concern regarding job security in the age of AI. The survey results indicate that job security ranks among the top worries for respondents. Surprisingly, this concern received little attention at the recent AI Security Summit, despite its far-reaching implications for the workforce and the nation as a whole.

The survey, carried out by The Boost, a newsletter focused on AI in marketing, has brought to light the fact that the UK public is nearly as anxious about AI-related job security as they are about AI security itself.

This finding underscores the urgent necessity for governments to address the human aspect of AI advancements.

The survey results also highlight a growing demand for AI education and training. Tim O’Shea, the founder of The Boost, has observed a surge in new subscribers who have recently lost their jobs to AI technology and are now eager to acquire AI knowledge to re-enter the job market.

“We’ve noticed a significant increase in subscribers who have lost their jobs to AI and are keen to gain AI knowledge to reintegrate into the job market,” Tim O’Shea commented on the growing readership of The Boost.

The survey posed the question, “What worries you most about AI?” and received responses from 660 UK participants:

What worries you most about AI?

  • Possible job losses – 27.9%
  • Security issues – 34.4%
  • Another issue – 12.6%
  • I’m not worried – 25.2%

Tim O’Shea stressed the urgency of embracing AI education on a national level. “Without a concerted effort to educate our workforce in AI, we risk not only job security but also our overall security as a nation,” Tim O’Shea emphasised.

The call for AI education and upskilling is not only about safeguarding job security but also positioning the UK as a global leader in AI innovation and productivity.
