Is AI the Future for American Jobs?

Americans are leery that most human jobs will be replaced by artificial intelligence in the future.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 47% of American Adults think it is at least somewhat likely that artificial intelligence will eventually take over most human jobs, including 16% who think it’s Very Likely. Just as many (46%), however, don’t see an AI takeover as likely, including seven percent (7%) who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
