Tomas Rasymas, Head of AI at Hostinger, commented on the study stating, “There is a growing fear of AI taking away people’s jobs. To address this concern, we set out to explore the impact of AI in countries with the highest AI adoption rates. Our findings reveal that the implications of AI on the world of work are more diverse and intriguing than one might initially assume.”

The comprehensive study analyzed data on job sectors projected to face the greatest disruption from AI and the number of people employed within these sectors across various countries.

On the other hand, India ranks 48th on the index, with transportation and logistics, automotive, and manufacturing identified as the sectors most vulnerable to AI displacement.

Notably, the healthcare sector emerges as the most susceptible to AI disruption, with administrative tasks such as medical record keeping expected to be automated in the near future, leading to a decline in health administration jobs.

With the rapid growth of the AI market and increasing interest in AI’s impact on daily and professional lives, Hostinger’s study offers valuable insights into the global scope of AI’s influence.

The study establishes the United States as the frontrunner on the Global AI Impact Score, driven by transformative tools like ChatGPT and DALL-E. Across all job sectors, healthcare, finance, and retail are identified as the most vulnerable to automation.

The banking industry, for instance, has already experienced a decline in teller and administrative positions due to automation and digitization. Experts predict that advanced AI may pose a threat to financial qualitative analysts in the near future.

In the retail sector, the proliferation of self-checkouts is expected to shrink job opportunities for cashiers in the coming decade. Moreover, AI content generation services like Jasper have sparked debates and concerns among marketers, as they fear the software may eventually surpass their own skills.
