International Conference on AI in Work, Innovation, Productivity and Skills

Conversation with Daron Acemoglu on AI, automation and skills

Feb 21, 2022 | 4:30 PM - 5:00 PM


AI will radically change the nature of work and profoundly impact labour markets across OECD economies, for better or for worse. Indeed, AI will expand the set of tasks that can be automated but will also lead to the creation of new tasks that cannot be performed by machines. During this session, Daron Acemoglu (Institute Professor, Department of Economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Stefano Scarpetta (Director of the Employment, Labour and Social Affairs Directorate, OECD) will discuss the impact of AI and automation technologies on work, the implications in terms of skills that will be required, and how public policies can help to make sure that the adoption of these new technologies is beneficial for all.
