New Delhi, Feb 2,2024: Most employees in India believe artificial intelligence (AI) will open new opportunities to enjoy work and make their jobs easier and more interesting, a new report said on Friday.
According to the HP Work Relationship Index report ‘Growing and Mature Economies (GME)’, in India, 71 per cent of knowledge workers anticipate that AI will enable them to delegate repetitive tasks, freeing them to focus on more productive work.
