“One of the defining issues of our time is the relationship between labor and technology. The application of the latter is accelerating in the workplace and expanding from routine tasks to complex, cognitive activities that require a high degree of skill and judgment. As new digitally-enabled automation and artificial intelligence (AI) play a growing role, there is rising concern over the possible impact on employment, and that the pattern of the past, which saw new jobs created in place of those made obsolete, may be set to change.”
McKinsey&Company., Digitally-enabled automation and artificial intelligence: Shaping the future of work in Europe’s digital front-runners, October 2017.
