Will AI change the social and ethical risk profiles of countries?

It's fantastic to see how Generative AI and tools like ChatGPT are bringing massive efficiency gains and in many cases increases in job satisfaction too.

The opportunities are super exciting and the scope and scale of the changes these tools can bring will continue to grow.  As with most exciting changes there is also risk though.....

OECD have highlighted the very valid risk that along with these improvements there will be significant changes in traditionally highly skilled workforces such as finance, medicine and law.  And with these changes there could be new ethical risks around these workforces who make up more than 27% of employment across the OECD member economies.

It'll be interesting to see how and if country based inherent ethical and social risks might change from the traditional manufacturing countries and into countries with a large white collar or creative industry workforce.   

The OECD report highlighted that AI creates new jobs and boosts wages, and that many workers said that these technologies had improved their enjoyment at work by automating dangerous or tedious tasks. However, Mr Scarpetta also warned that the use of AI also “comes with serious ethical challenges around data protection and privacy, transparency and explainability, bias and discrimination, automatic decision making and accountability."
