AI Ethics: Labor impacts of AI-enabled automation


A deep analysis of the labor impacts of AI-enabled automation will be crucial as we envision a future where there is not only labor replacement but also labor transformations that create human-machine workspaces. There are implications when thinking about what skills to impart to people going through the education process and how to retrain existing labor forces to be better prepared for a more automated future.

This session will take a critical, deep-dive into what this means and will explore this through the following reading material with an objective to produce a short article summarizing the views from our discussions.
