The arrival of OpenAI’s language model, ChatGPT, has sparked a surge in calls for regulations to protect jobs in Europe. As the use of artificial intelligence (AI) continues to expand, concerns about its potential impact on employment have grown.
ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI, is an advanced AI system capable of generating human-like text responses. It has garnered attention for its ability to engage in realistic and coherent conversations, raising questions about its potential to replace human workers in various industries.
In response to these concerns, European policymakers and labor unions have begun advocating for regulations to safeguard jobs. They argue that without proper oversight, AI technologies like ChatGPT could lead to significant job displacement and exacerbate existing inequalities in the labor market.
One of the primary concerns is the potential automation of customer service and call center jobs. ChatGPT’s ability to handle customer inquiries and provide support has raised fears that human workers in these sectors could be replaced by AI systems, leading to widespread unemployment.
