  • OpenAI rolled out its latest version of ChatGPT this month, with more capabilities.

  • Since the AI chatbot launched in November, people have experimented with it to ease their workloads.

  • More than 40% of professionals have used it at work, and 70% did so without telling their bosses, a recent survey found.

Can ChatGPT change the way you work?

Some people are convinced it can; others are trying to find out, without their bosses knowing.

A recent survey from professional networking app Fishbowl found that 43% of working professionals have used AI tools, such as OpenAI's ChatGPT, to accomplish tasks at work. Of these people, 68% hadn't told their bosses they were using these tools for work.

The survey was conducted from January 26 to 30 and included responses from more than 11,700 workers on the Fishbowl app, from companies like Amazon, Google, IBM, JPMorgan, Meta, and Twitter.

ChatGPT can help with work tasks like writing emails, scheduling meetings, and analyzing data, though there are concerns that it can spread misinformation or facilitate plagiarism in some cases. Working professionals including a realtor, a lawyer, and a teacher previously told Insider they'd discovered ways to make their jobs easier by using ChatGPT.

Besides ChatGPT, other AI tools have burst onto the scene recently, from Microsoft's revamped Bing search engine, to Google's chatbot Bard, which started rolling out in the US and UK this week.
