The Future of Work and Labor

Future of Work and Labor

The age of intelligent tools and computation-intensive automation of manufacturing and services is upon us. The rapid development and uptake of intelligent, self-learning systems has begun to automate tasks associated with blue-collar jobs as well as less routine tasks related to knowledge work. With these technological advancements, many predict a dystopian outcome where jobs are lost and workers are displaced. We strongly believe, however, that the future is ours to create. We can use intelligent tools to generate new employment, augment skills, and create a more just and equal society.
