A recent survey shows that nearly 7 in 10 Canadian employees have used ChatGPT at work, despite the fact that only 4% of Canadian businesses use AI. The study, conducted by GetApp among 600 full- and part-time employees, shows that more than 80% of respondents believe generative AI tools have increased their productivity.
Text editing, idea generation, data analysis, and email composition are the top uses of AI tools. However, only 42% report “meticulously reviewing and verifying every response,” while 49% say they have performed some checks.
While 600 people isn’t a lot for a study like this, it reflects the trend that other studies have shown, with OpenAI predicting that large-scale language models will impact the work of about 80% of U.S. workers.
