Policy

Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are developing rapidly, with many potential benefits for economies, societies, communities and individuals. Across sectors, AI technologies offer the promise of boosting productivity and creating new products and services.

This potential brings with it questions about the impact of AI technologies on work and working life, and renews public and policy debates about automation and the future of work: how might AI affect jobs and employment? Who could be most affected by these changes? And what factors can influence how the benefits of AI are shared across society?
