While 21% of those polled expressed no concern about technology taking their jobs, 24% were unsure. 45% of Western expats had the same anxiety, compared to 60% of survey respondents who voiced concern about AI and robots taking their jobs.
According to the survey, 66% of people under the age of 25 were concerned that AI and robots would take their employment within the next ten years, compared to 57% of people between the ages of 25 and 44 and only 43% of people above the age of 45.
Be aware that the UAE government is funding ambitious ambitions to turn the nation into a centre for artificial intelligence, including programmes for education and training that will foster the development of cutting-edge technology.
Jonathan Ivan-Duke, co-founder and partner at duke+mir, commented on the study, stating that it is surprising that the youth and Emiratis are most concerned about the impact of future technological advancements on their employment prospects given the UAE government’s emphasis on protecting and providing jobs for Emiratis in the present and future.
Keep in mind that the UAE government is funding ambitious ambitions to turn the nation into a hub for artificial intelligence, including education and training for the development of cutting-edge technology.
Despite the UAE’s reputation as a society that values innovation, its people and residents are fearful of new technologies taking their employment. Ivan-Duke continued.
