A report from a Government advisory group has found that net job losses are not expected as a result of the adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
The Expert Group on Future Skills Needs said many jobs will change as certain tasks are taken over by AI and that the technology has the potential to bring substantial productivity increases.
It comes amid concerns that automation will lead to job displacement and unemployment as machines take over jobs once done by humans.
Minister for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation Robert Troy has welcomed the publication of the report.
It highlights the need for everyone, regardless of whether they work in tech or not, to have some level of knowledge and understanding of AI.
