Before this week’s AI-powered marketing technology releases, here are some interesting and related statistics.
- 20% to 30% of customer service and support agents will be replaced with generative AI by 2026, according to Gartner. Uma Challa, Gartner’s customer service expert, says this is shortsighted because the technology isn’t yet up to the task. Marketers will be keenly observing the impact of AI on marketing-adjacent functions like customer service.
- 25% of Americans believe AI will reduce the number of jobs available, according to a YouGov survey.
- 1/3 of Americans think AI-based text generation will overall be a bad thing for society, the same survey found.
- Only 40% of Americans are willing to trust AI, according to a survey by KPMG Australia and the University of Queensland. That puts the US in seventh place in that category. India is in first place with 75% of its citizens finding AI trustworthy.
