TLDR:

A new report from AI customer support company DevRev found that accountants in the U.S. are not the most concerned about the impact of AI advancements in their profession. The report analyzed online search data for terms related to AI and careers to determine America’s top five jobs with the most AI anxiety. Accountants ranked third in terms of AI worry, after lawyers and artists. The study also found that AI concerns accountants the most in the state of North Dakota.

Key Points:

  • A new report from DevRev found that accountants are not the most concerned about AI’s impact in their profession, ranking third in terms of AI worry.
  • The report analyzed online search data to determine the top five jobs with the most AI anxiety.
  • Lawyers were found to be the most concerned about AI advancements, followed by artists, accountants, doctors, and data scientists.
  • The study also identified North Dakota as the state where AI concerns accountants the most.

Despite the growing integration of AI in accounting firms, the study highlights that accountants are not the most concerned about the impact of AI on their profession. The report analyzed online search data for terms such as “AI impact on…,” “will AI replace…,” and “how will AI affect…” to determine the top five jobs with the most anxiety about AI. Lawyers ranked first in terms of AI worry, followed by artists and then accountants.

AI is becoming increasingly prevalent in accounting firms for tasks such as generating financial reports and managing expenses. However, there are concerns about the potential for data breaches and cybercriminals accessing sensitive financial information. The study suggests that these concerns could be contributing to accountants’ anxiety about AI advancements.

The report also provides a breakdown of AI anxiety by state, revealing that accountants in North Dakota are the most concerned about the impact of AI. It is unclear why this particular state has a higher level of anxiety compared to others, but it could be influenced by factors such as the local economy or the prevalence of AI-related job displacements.

Overall, the study highlights that while accountants are not the most concerned about AI’s impact, there is still a level of anxiety within the profession. It emphasizes the need for accountants to stay informed about AI advancements and to develop skills that complement and work alongside AI technologies, rather than being replaced by them.
