    Automation, digital platforms, and other innovations are changing the fundamental nature of work. Understanding these shifts can help policy makers, business leaders, and workers move forward. (Read more…)

  • McKinsey: One-third of US workers could be jobless by 2030 due to automation

    • McKinsey research says that up to one-third of U.S. workers — and 800 million globally — could be displaced by 2030.

    The technology-driven world in which we live is a world filled with promise but also challenges. Cars that drive themselves, machines that read X-rays, and algorithms that respond to customer-service inquiries are all manifestations of powerful new forms of automation.
