UK Public’s Anxieties About AI Impact on Job Security, as Revealed by Survey

A recent survey conducted in the UK has uncovered a significant level of public apprehension concerning job security in the age of AI. The survey results indicate that job security is a top concern among respondents, and surprisingly, this concern received minimal attention at the recent AI Security Summit, despite its far-reaching implications for the workforce and the nation.

The survey, conducted by “The Boost,” a newsletter focused on AI for marketing, has exposed the fact that the UK public is nearly as worried about AI-related job security as they are about AI security itself. This revelation underscores the immediate need for government action to address the human aspect of AI advancements.

The survey findings also shed light on a growing demand for AI education and training. Tim O’Shea, the founder of “The Boost,” has noticed a significant increase in new subscribers who have recently lost their jobs due to AI technology and are now eager to gain AI knowledge to re-enter the job market.

Tim O’Shea commented on the growing readership of “The Boost,” saying, “We’ve observed a surge in subscribers who have fallen victim to job losses caused by AI and are enthusiastic about acquiring AI skills to regain their foothold in the job market.”

The survey asked 660 UK respondents, “What worries you most about AI?” and received the following responses:

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

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