Introduction:

From its ubiquity in the computer sector, everyone uses ChatGPT or Survey Finds Relatively Few Americans some other AI tool to automate their job and plan their garden. However, new Pew polling indicates that the language model may not be as popular or dangerous as some might have you believe.

Even while ChatGPT is expanding in popularity, according to ongoing surveys by Pew Research, just approximately 18% of Americans have ever used it. Of course, that varies by demographic: Men, those in the 18–29 age range, and people with a college education are more likely to have utilized the system, though even in those groups, it’s only between 30 and 40 percent. (The chart below shows additional breakdowns of this.)

For a technology that was hardly unknown a year ago, it is still growing at an astonishingly rapid rate. At that time, you typically don’t have two-thirds of America learning about hypervisors or a new phone type.

More respondents claimed to have used the chatbot for “entertainment” or “to learn something” than for work, consistent with anecdotal reports of people using the chatbot occasionally or casually to summarize a new field. More frequent questions than “Write a Python script to extract title and abstract from a given database of neuroscience papers” are “What’s the Higgs boson?” or “Tell me a fairy tale about Timothée Chalamet.”

AI in general, not necessarily ChatGPT specifically, will have this impact. That being said, among those who have heard of ChatGPT, it will likely have a major impact on software engineers, graphic designers, and journalists. We may safely speculate that there is some conflation of other generative and interpretive AI models.

However, only 19% of employed people who had heard of the model believed it would significantly disrupt their jobs, and 27% expected no impact. Surprisingly, only 15% of respondents believed it would be beneficial. However, individuals in the “information and technology” sector and those working in finance and education are considerably more likely to anticipate significant or modest changes. Few people in hospitality, entertainment, and physically demanding jobs like manufacturing and construction reported such feelings.

Separately, and somewhat more recently, Pew researchers found that people are considerably more concerned about the role of AI in daily life: AI causes 47% of respondents, up from 31% last year, to be “more concerned than excited.” And the more people are worried, the more they are aware of AI or think they are.

All of this is consistent with the widespread opinion about AI that we have found in the media and public discourse: that we are afraid of what might happen. It may be advantageous to your industry, obtrusive, require regulation, or be simply disregarded. However, it’s feasible that in a year the majority of people will have heard about ChatGPT and its relatives and will feel more strongly about them.
