Long-run economic growth depends on the application of new technologies that reshape production, adding new kinds of work to the economy. As new work is added to the old work, the skills of some workers are inevitably made obsolete. To understand how technology will alter the demand for skills and the type of new work that will be created looking forward, this event will examine with Dr Carl Benedikt Frey how the expanding scope of tasks computers are able to perform will likely impact on future labour market outcomes.
