These self-employed professionals from different fields that offer their services to companies or clients, were harmed by the development of OpenIA. By mentioning them, we are not referring to lawyers, but rather to jobs that have a lot of creativity: journalists, editors, photographers or graphic designers.

This study indicates that 2% fewer jobs are offered monthly, and, furthermore, that Profits decreased by 5.2%.

At first glance these figures may not seem intimidating, but we remember that the chatbot was launched to the public on November 30, 2022, less than a year ago, so, in just that time, it was able to significantly reduce the available work.

Months ago, Sam Altman dared to say that there will be jobs that will disappear completely: “There are jobs that are going to disappear, period”.
