INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ADAMS) – Despite the rapid rise of technology, a new survey says most Hoosiers are not worried about robots taking their jobs. Paul McDonald from the staffing firm Robert Half says Indianapolis is the city where the most employees feel artificial intelligence will have no impact on their jobs. Thirty-nine-percent of those surveyed in the Jobs and Anxiety report think AI can actually help them at work.

Sixty-seven-percent of those surveyed in Indiana say they expect no change in their workplace.
