AI’s Impact on Layoffs

The role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the recent wave of layoffs is uncertain, though it undoubtedly has a part to play. AI’s ability to automate tasks previously performed by humans has led to job losses, particularly in sectors heavily reliant on manual or repetitive work. The increasing sophistication of these technologies is only expected to accelerate workforce displacement. However, the complexity and opacity of AI systems make it difficult to quantify its exact impact on employment. Thus, while AI’s contribution to layoffs is undeniable, the extent of its role remains less clear.
