57% of top managers from SMEs in the DACH region believe that AI opinions are welcome when making important decisions.
When it comes to artificial intelligence (AI), there is often talk of job losses. However, according to a recent survey, the opposite could be the case. An information portal has analysed the latest developments in the field of AI. Specifically, 19 percent of German companies that already use AI will see an increase in employment in 2022. By comparison, the figure for those not using AI is just 6 percent.
Companies that embrace the new technology are also ahead in terms of sales growth, according to a survey by Business2Community. Overall, managing directors see considerable opportunities. 57 percent of top managers from medium-sized companies in the DACH region believe that AI opinions are to be welcomed when making important decisions. Almost one in three would even like to see reasons given for decisions that deviate from AI in the future.
Demand for AI continues unabated
However, the financial world could be particularly affected by the AI revolution. Already today, 11 percent of German citizens say that they would prefer to be advised by an AI rather than a human when making financial decisions. On the other hand, 19 percent can imagine receiving investment advice from an AI if they also receive human advice as a supplement. It remains to be assumed that acceptance will continue to increase in the coming years as AI becomes more widespread.
People are still interested in the topic of AI. This is evident from Google search engine data, for example. Search volumes are still high around a year after the release of the AI bot ChatGPT. What's more, demand for the term “AI” is currently at an all-time high on Google. Specialised AI investments also continue to enjoy great popularity - with corresponding performance. The gains in AI cryptocurrencies have been particularly massive. For example, the price of Fetch.AI rose by 586 percent within a year.
