AI created three times as many jobs as it destroyed in 2018
While AI will reduce employment in some industries, it is also creating new products and services, giving rise to new markets, improving productivity, and making work better, a ZipRecruiter Future of Work -survey shows.
Key findings of the report include:

- AI created three times as many jobs as it destroyed in 2018,
- Employers across several industries have begun offering more on-the-job training to prepare for the future of work.
