Accountants, mathematicians, interpreters, and writers are among the professionals whose careers are most exposed to the capabilities of generative artificial intelligence, according to a study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and OpenAI, the company that makes the popular AI tool ChatGPT. 

"GPTs and GPT-powered software are able to save workers [in those occupations] a significant amount of time completing a large share of their tasks, but it does not necessarily suggest that their tasks can be fully automated by these technologies," the study says.

The researchers found that most jobs will be changed in some form by GPTs, with 80% of workers in occupations where at least one job task can be performed more quickly by generative AI. Information-processing roles — including public relations specialists, court reporters, and blockchain engineers — are highly exposed, they found. The jobs that will be least affected by the technology include short-order cooks, motorcycle mechanics, and oil-and-gas roustabouts.
