Northeastern University-Gallup Survey

The report is the product of a series of more than 10,000 web surveys conducted in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom between April 25 and June 4, 2019, as well as interviews of chief human resources officers at 10 large corporations based in these countries. The surveys measured perceptions of the impact of artificial intelligence on jobs, as well as what education choices respondents would make in response and their confidence in higher education, government and business in planning for widespread AI adoption.
