Abstract:

There have been many benefits to automation, including affordable pricing and accessibility of goods through mass marketing, but its impact on the workforce also has the potential to cripple society. While automation saves billions of dollars for corporations, it also eliminates jobs from the workforce. Advancements in artificial intelligence mean that manufacturing jobs are not the only sector to fall victim to job displacement; experts predict that many white-collar jobs soon will be carried out by computers. In this resource, experts predict how the labor market will be restructured and how humans can successfully adapt to these changes.
