Workers are turning to AI over humans for career advice

A new study has found that 82 percent of employees believe artificial intelligence can support their careers better than humans, CNBC reported Oct. 26.

The report was conducted by Oracle, a cloud computing company, and surveyed over 14,000 people from 13 countries across managerial, C-suite and employee positions.

It revealed a divide in expectations and satisfaction between employees and employers, with 85 percent of employees saying they were unsatisfied with their employer's support of their careers. Instead, they reported wanting learning and development opportunities, higher salaries and opportunities to take on new projects and roles. 

People also reported trusting AI technologies enough to take advice from them, with 75 percent saying they would make life choices based on AI recommendations. Live chatbots may be one technology workers are turning to for answers and advice, given their seemingly unbiased nature and around-the-clock access. 

"It comes down to thinking about how to use technology to identify what the next opportunity is for [employees], and not just to identify it, but to point to the right courses and skills that they are going to need to make that transition," Dan Schawbel, a partner on the survey, told CNBC.
