This report highlights the uncertainty around whether workers will be enabled by the technology, or displaced. While the researchers are sceptical of attempts to quantify the displacement effect of AI and related technologies such as robotics, they say it seems safe to predict that, for the foreseeable future, there will still be human workers, and equally safe to surmise that, in many cases, their working lives will be touched by these technologies.
The authors also examine the sorts of technologies that are already being deployed across our workforce, or that are likely to be deployed in the near future. The report takes a broad analysis of the nature and value of work, considers issues in the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and offers 25 recommendations.
