New Delhi, January 9: Generative artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to impact 44 per cent of all working hours across industries, enable productivity enhancements across 900 different types of jobs and create $6 to $8 trillion in global economic value, a new report said on Tuesday. According to the global IT services firm Accenture, about 95 per cent of business leaders globally believe that making technology more human will massively expand the opportunities of every industry.

"As AI, spatial computing and body-sensing technologies evolve to a point where tech appears to imitate human capabilities and seem invisible, what you’ll see left are the people -- empowered with new capabilities to accomplish things they once considered impossible," said Paul Daugherty, chief technology and innovation officer at Accenture. IT Jobs in India: Hiring in Indian IT Sector Declines 21% in December 2023, AI Jobs See 5% Growth, Says Report.
