Automation and Jobs: Why It’s Really Different This Time

Technological change has always been a defining feature of advanced capitalist economies. However, the speed, scale and scope at which automation and artificial intelligence are evolving today and the extent to which they could disrupt labor markets could be unprecedented.

In this interactive seminar, Dr. Robin Gaster explains why this time is different, and why the future will not be like the past.

Dr. Gaster is the President of Incumetrics, a Washington, D.C.-based economic and technology consulting firm whose clients have included the U.S. National Research Council, the U.S. Census Bureau, the European Commission, and the Brookings Institution.
