Eighteen percent of adults across Ireland have used ChatGPT, with almost one in ten people reporting that they used the AI tool for work purposes.

This is according to the most recent Digital Insights research, commissioned by the country’s representative body for online businesses, Digital Business Ireland, and conducted by polling company, Ireland Thinks. 

It is based on a national representative sample, collected from a pool of over 30,000 panellists.

Artificial Intelligence

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence chatbot developed by OpenAI which uses natural language processes to create conversational dialogue, in response to user-generated prompts. 

It has a number of practical applications including, but not limited to solving equations, sentiment analysis, composing short and long-form content, concept generation and data extraction.

Personal And Work

Among the subset of adults who use ChatGPT, 10% use it for personal purposes while 8% use it for work purposes. Usage is most common among 18–24-year-olds (31%) compared to those aged 65+ (4%).

High income earners are twice as likely (16%) to use ChatGPT for work purposes versus the general population (8%).

'Tangible Benefits'

"Artificial intelligence (AI) provides a potentiality for businesses that is simply too good to ignore," said Chairperson of Digital Business Ireland, Ashley McDonnell.

"Regardless of the industry you operate in, having an AI strategy should now be an imperative. Those discerning businesses that are willing to make the short-term time investment to learn the workings of the tool will undoubtedly yield tangible benefits in the longer-term."
