Other states most likely to suffer include Texas, New York and Florida. Among those states least at risk from job losses as a result of AI and automation are Wyoming, Vermont, Hawaii and Maine.
The data also revealed the top ten careers most likely to be replaced by artificial intelligence with roles including cashiers, IT support technicians, HR assistant and paralegal assistant all making the list.
The data analysts used AI Bot ChatGPT to carry out the research, analyzing over 450 job sectors across the 50 US states.
John Strizaker from NetVoucherCodes analyzed the data. He said: “It’s really interesting to see how powerful AI and automation is becoming.
“The data we’ve pulled together shows that a lot of lower income jobs are the ones that are at a higher risk of being replaced. When we break this down, we realize it’s because these jobs often involve a lot of the same repetitive tasks. This can be inputted into a computer and can be done automatically.
“The jobs that aren’t at risk are ones that really require human thinking and decision making, like nurses, doctors along with creative roles such as fashion designers and hairdressers.
“It may surprise people that jobs like bus drivers and delivery couriers are at risk of automation but a machine can easily take over these jobs. They require little human decision making, you could programme a route into a machine and away it goes.
“Although this might be a concern in the near future, there’s a lot of benefits to AI and automation. It will increase productivity, especially in creative fields and it will be able to take over repetitive tasks and free up workers for other things that require thinking.”
