About this project
Artificial intelligence-based technologies (AI) have the potential to dramatically affect work—changing how work is organized and managed and how we do our jobs. In some sectors, AI has already created significant change — in others, the potential uses of AI and the effects of that technology in workplaces are still to be understood.
We’re partnering with the OECD and researchers in other countries to investigate the impact of AI in workplaces in the manufacturing and finance sectors. The research will look at the process of AI implementation and adoption and how firms and workers understand the AI transition and its effects on work. It builds on our past research on technology adoption and digital maturity among firms, the impact of automation on workers and on demand for skills, and on developments in artificial intelligence.
This project has the potential to inform decisions on both management practices and policies for implementing AI in workplaces, seeking to maximize positive outcomes arising from change.
