Trade union CNV wants more attention for new technology such as ChatGPT

Trade union CNV wants employers in the Netherlands, together with employees, to develop a vision about the use of new technology in daily work. ‘New technology, such as ChatGPT, is now rapidly conquering the workplace. Think of flawless translations, tight texts and tax and legal advice from robots’, says CNV chairman Piet Fortuin. ‘But most employers are still sitting back and taking no action.’

CNV asked pollster Maurice de Hond to find out how companies deal with new technology. Many employers wouldn’t give their staff room to experiment with new technology right now. Fortuin calls the attitude of employers ‘very undesirable’ and emphasizes that these are intelligent applications ‘that nobody thought possible until recently’.

To ask

‘What do you do yourself and what work does technology take over? How do we prevent technology from taking control of our work and thinking?’ These are questions that employers and employees should address, he says. “Before the technology gets to work with us.”

Part of the 3,000 workers surveyed in the poll indicated that they feared that the new technology could also bring negative developments. Consider, for example, the loss of privacy at work. Yet the vast majority of respondents did not think that their work would become completely obsolete in five years’ time due to new technological developments.

Large tech companies have recently focused more on artificial intelligence (AI). For example, earlier this week it was announced that Google will open its chatbot Bard to the public so that users can practice with it. Microsoft also wants to further market its artificial intelligence. People can give the Bing platform a written assignment, after which the AI ​​makes a drawing of it. The intelligent chatbot ChatGPT has also been in the news a lot in recent months.
