“An example of this is a number of publications using AI to write post-match reports following sporting events. It is absolutely mind blowing and impressive to think how intricate the programming has to be to accurately replicate the work of a human but it is also understandable why some people are concerned for their future job security.

“The jobs that could be most at risk are the ones that have a certain level of repetition, but I do think there will be guidelines introduced that will help in protecting people’s careers from complete AI takeover.”
