From Northeastern University:
In all three countries, adults are pessimistic about the overall impact of AI on jobs, but much more optimistic about its impact on their own jobs. In Canada, 61% say adoption will result in net job loss, compared with 60% in the U.K. and 71% in the U.S. However, when asked if they worry about losing their own jobs to AI, 83% of U.S. workers say they are "not too worried" or "not worried at all"; 64% of Canadian workers and 66% of those in the U.K. say the same.
1.) Few see higher education as doing a good job preparing current or future employees for the workforce.
In Canada, just 45% of adults say they mostly (33%) or strongly (12%) agree that colleges and universities do a good job preparing graduates, while in the U.K., 34% of the public says they mostly (24%) or strongly (10%) agree. Americans are the most pessimistic, with fewer than one in five, 17% saying they mostly (14%) or strongly (3%) agree.
Canadians are most optimistic concerning the future, with 48% agreeing (35%) or strongly agreeing (13%) that universities do a good job preparing students for jobs of the future, many of which will require some technological skills and the ability to work with data. In the U.K., 38% say they agree (27%) or strongly agree (11%) that higher education does a good job preparing these graduates. Americans are, again, the least optimistic, with 22% saying they agree (19%) or strongly agree (3%) that colleges and universities are doing a good job preparing students for future jobs involving technology.
