Data from Upwork has been one of the earliest pieces of evidence that AI is indeed having a disruptive impact on jobs - particularly translation, copywriting and social media marketing going down in terms of number of jobs and charge rate. Interestingly, we’re also see an increase in demand video editing / post production, which suggests what exactly? AI generated output not entirely there yet, or perhaps a shift of resources from in-house to gig because it nearly is? Nice piece of research this.
