Automation 4.0, Artificial Intelligence and Labor/Industrial Relations

Official language: IT

Automation 4.0 could boost economic growth by creating new types of jobs and improving efficiency in many businesses. But it also points to uncertain effects: job destruction, work organization revolution, digital work, new HR models, reshaped functions of firm-level bargaining.  The skills in which humans have maintained a comparative advantage are likely to erode over time as new technologies become more sophisticated. The workshop is aimed at highlighting to what extent and how Labor and Industrial Relations should face with this complex frame
