52% UAE employees ‘prefer to work with an AI colleague’



More than half of UAE employees (52%) say they would prefer working with an AI colleague over a human one, indicating that staff could respond well to a significant increase in the use of AI in the workplace. According to a new report from Oliver Wyman, a global management consulting firm and a business of Marsh McLennan, in total, 74% of UAE employees say that use AI in the workplace every week, while 91% would like their employer to offer training in the use of AI tools in the workplace. In contrast, 84% of UAE employees currently receive training in AI, which is above the global average of 64% for the 16 countries covered by the report, but still shows significant room for improvement. Key theme The research, released ahead of The World Government Summit in Dubai from February 12 to 14, 2024, reveals that while the use of AI is surging amongst UAE employees, employers need to make greater efforts to train and engage employees about its use. ‘Artificial Intelligence and The Next Frontiers’ is one of six key themes of The World Government Summit, reflecting growing awareness and concern around the area.
