By means of sophisticated AI software, automation is also affecting the work of high-skilled professionals in fields such as journalism, production management, and medical diagnostics.
Seen by some as the road to universal prosperity, automation is seen by others as a mixed blessing. Recent studies on labor market effects in the USA have shown a strong correlation between automation and a polarization between rich and poor. Some sceptics not only point to ambiguous employment effects, but also to the peril of devaluing human tasks and work autonomy.
At this event, leading academics from Germany and the US will present recent research results. The panellists will discuss the relationship between technological change, inequality and politics including what conditions must be met to benefit from the progress in automation technology, while avoiding its pitfalls.
