5. AI could lead to more productive jobs, says IBM's CEO

While one of the biggest dangers of AI has been the loss of jobs, IBM's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Arvind Krishna said that it could free up people for more productive jobs. Speaking at the B20 Summit India 2023 on Friday, Chandra highlighted that responsible development of AI could not only lead to more productivity but could also lower business costs, as per a PTI report.

“Inside IBM, we think about 20 per cent of the total activity, which we call lower order cognitive work, about 30 per cent of that can be easily made productive through AI. That frees up more people to do more value adding work. It's not that there aren't jobs. If you have productivity then you can access way more clients. You can provide things at a lower cost point”, Krishna said.
