He draws parallels between AI and monumental advancements such as the steam engine, electricity, and the internet, highlighting AI’s potential role in shaping the future in the near and far terms.

J.P. Morgan Chase’s integration of predictive AI and machine learning spans several years and is likely a reason why the financial giant keeps a close eye on the development of the technology. This includes applications ranging from marketing strategies to fraud and risk management.

Recently, the exploration of generative AI in software engineering, customer service, and operations signifies a deeper dive into AI’s capabilities. “While we are investing more money in our AI capabilities, many of these projects pay for themselves,” Dimon reflects, envisioning AI’s potential to redefine job roles and workforce dynamics.

However, the transition to an AI-centric world is not without its challenges. As reported by Techspot, a survey revealed that almost half of all managers are aiming to replace workers with AI or even leverage technology to depress wage levels. This is also heightened by a Goldman Sachs report that showed “Two-thirds of occupations could be partially automated by AI”.

This goes against the views of other tech leaders, such as Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, who view AI as a means to augment and enhance existing human capabilities, not replacing bodies.  But the waters have yet to be charted and AI’s lasting impact on both labor and business is yet to be known.
