October 3, 2023: Jamie Dimon, the prominent CEO and chair of JPMorgan Chase, highlighted the pivotal role of artificial intelligence (AI) in modern banking.

During a recent Bloomberg TV interview, Dimon commented, “Because of technology, your children might live to 100 without cancer. Likely, they’ll be working just three-and-a-half days a week.”

Having previously labeled AI as “essential for our company’s future achievements,” Dimon emphasized its capabilities. He pointed out its potential in fostering product development, amplifying customer interaction, boosting productivity, and refining risk management strategies.

Between February and April, JPMorgan Chase, headquartered in New York, posted job advertisements for over 3,500 roles linked to this technology. Consultancy data from Evident supports this claim.

Additionally, Dimon devoted an extensive portion of this year’s shareholder letter to AI, underscoring its importance. He praised JPMorgan’s AI-related endeavors, which comprise more than 300 practical applications, deeming them as “utterly indispensable.”

However, Dimon also issued a word of caution about the double-edged nature of AI.

While acknowledging the revolutionary contributions of technology, he said, “Technology has made incredible strides for humanity.

Yet, planes can crash, and medications might be abused – there are downsides.”

Dimon’s most pressing concern regarding AI is its misuse by malicious individuals.

He asserted, “The most significant drawback, in my eyes, is AI exploited by malevolent actors for harmful deeds.”

On the subject of AI potentially phasing out certain professions, Dimon was philosophical. He believes that job replacement has always been a byproduct of technological advancements.
