It has been found that since the launch of ChatGPT in November 2022, the search for artificial intelligence has sky rocketed by 1,700%. The AI powered chatbot, which has attracted more than 100 million global users, has been the centre of much debate.
According to findings conducted specifically using data from the UK workforce, by Venky Sundar, Founder and President of Indusface, the use of ChatGPT is fast becoming a popular tool and is being used for a variety of tasks across different industries. Here are the key findings from his research;
- The Advertising industry ranks as the sector using ChatGPT the most whilst working, with almost two fifths (39%) of respondents utilising the bot.
- The Legal industry ranks second, with 38% of respondents claiming they use ChatGPT at work.
- Writing up reports is the most common reason for using ChatGPT at work, with more than a quarter (27%) of respondents naming this as their reason for using this form of AI.

Only slightly more than 5% of people working in the industry said they will never use ChatGPT, showing a more welcoming and open-minded attitude towards applying ChatGPT within the advertising industry.
Businesses within the Legal sector rank as the second industry in the UK using ChatGPT the most. 38% of legal workers surveyed admit to using ChatGPT or alternative methods of AI for work.
