IMF chief Kristalina Georgieva urged policymakers to tackle this “troubling trend” and to take steps “to prevent the technology from further stoking.”

IMF noted that about 60% of jobs could be impacted by AI in high-income nations, and roughly half of these may benefit from AI integration to boost.

Comparatively, AI exposure was estimated to come in at 40% in emerging markets and at 26% in low-income countries.

IMF also flagged that AI could affect income and wealth inequality within countries, warning of “polarization within income brackets.”
