Hi.

While reading an article about artificial intelligence I met a sentence. Here it is.

According to a servey up to 45 percent of tasks done daily in the workplace could be automated using current technology.

I got meaning, but I am curious if it is a correct sentence. I have a strong desire to put in the preposition "by" between automated and using.

Thanks for your answers.

It's correct as written or with "by" inserted where you suggest. "Using" could be replaced by "with".
